Gorgeous!
This DVD of the concert is a joy to hear and to watch. The venue is gorgeous, as is the music. I've never heard Eine Kleine Nachtmusic sound better. It's fascinating to see Mr. Barenboim conduct as the orchestra sees him - from the front, and witness the minimalism of his gestures, which amazingly convey so much musical feeling! It is enthralling.- surely the sound and visual delight are as good as being there, and perhaps better.
