Notes & Reviews:

An American orchestra performing in North Korea! Hundreds of millions watched this historic New York Philharmonic concert on television in February 2008 and for a few hours the cold war hostilities seemed to be forgotten. This memorable event is now available for home-viewing on DVD and, as the first classical concert ever, on Blu-Ray Disc - highly advanced technology, which offers state-of-the-art technical professional viewing standards in the comfort of your home. Music became diplomacy when conductor Lorin Maazel and the New York Philharmonic, the USA's most eminent orchestra, opened the concert in East Pyongyang's Grand Theatre with both the American and the North Korean national anthems.
