1.0 out of 5 stars Only STEREO, 29 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For multichannel lovers, pay attention, this blu-ray is only PCM 2.0 !
It's not acceptable for a modern blu-ray recording !

5.0 out of 5 stars An Eueorarts release as good as the sixth, 11 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A wonderful interpretation and a very good multichannel recorded SACD !
A must to have with the first, third, sixth and ninth by the same Abbado/Lucerne.

The picture is a good 2004 HD.

Thanks Euroarts and please give us quickly an updated 2nd symphony.

2.0 out of 5 stars Problem with the multichannel DTS HD MA, 27 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As said in the title, the multichannel is a fake, nothing more than a bad remasterisation of the stereo part (which is good)
The Mahler 5 will be released in Blu-ray in february, after the 2nd and the 4th, EuroArts don't make a new mistake !

1.0 out of 5 stars Encore une production déjantée, 25 Sept. 2010
Rien qu'à voir l'image, ça ne me donne vraiment pas envie d'acheter ! Encore un metteur en scène qui au lieu de respecter les conventions de temps et de lieu de l'oeuvre, essaye de laisser son "empreinte" personnelle en la transposant (avec quel ridicule) dans notre temps ! Notre "temps" on va le voir au cinéma pas à l'opéra. C'est nul et ça m'étonne qu'Harnoncourt trempe systématiquement dans ce genre de représentation !

5.0 out of 5 stars The second release of this BD is a jewel, 17 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Edited march 19th :
The new audio version just released by Euroarts is a must have !
I agree with Godbluffer. The sound is now a very good 2004 sound with a real multichannel DTS-HD MA 5.1 even if it's not as perfect as the 1st, 3rd, 5th or 9th but it is the first Mahler symphony by Abbado recorded at Lucerne.
The problems on my Oppo with freezing and bugging on the 4th and 5th tracks are now resolute.
I urge others reviewers to update with the new version :-)
Thanks to EuroArts, it's a rare approach !

Very good concert and DVD

Only hope it will be released in blu-ray format, better for sound and picture. This concert and this artist desserve it !

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as the first one !, 29 July 2008
I don't agree at all with the first review. This one is, as good as the first one, an intense journey in the century of Louis XV.
We enjoy more and more all the heroes of the "Commissaire au Chatelet" Nicolas Le Floch alias marquis de Ranreuil.
I don't know if the others books (7 at this date) will be translated but I hope it for the english readers because they are all marvelous and I'm eagerly waiting the next one.
