This programme was aired on Australia's SBS (Special Broadcasting Service) network at the New Year live, with commentaries between each item, however only in 720p high definition. I was delighted to be able to purchase the Blu-ray version, the first of such New Year concerts from Vienna.
The sound is good, though still not 7.1 but available in DTS. The picture is stunning, with floral details in the hall exceptionally clear, as are the landscape details filmed for the interludes.
A very enjoyable disc which bears watching many times over.
