Good Music - Not so great TV production
on 26 December 2011
This is my least favourite Andre Rieu DVD (and I think I have them all!) - the music on it is well up to standard and enjoyable, and at over 2 hours it's good value.
My problem with it it is that there are too many visual effects and gimmicks that get in the way of the music.
Some viewers may not find these effects distracting, but personally, I did.
Otherwise, it's a very good concert, with a nice mix of tunes - I certainly wouldn't recommend anyone not to purchase - just to be forewarned if you're expecting a straightforward concert.
It was a valiant attempt at doing something different (and I'm all for that), but for me, it didn't work.
Luckily, after this one, I have nothing but positive things to say about Rieu DVD's!
