STUNNING VISUAL & SOUND EXPIERENCE
on 24 April 2013
I got this 3D Blu ray disc delivered well ahead of the predicted delivery date and watched it straightaway.
This is a live recording from Singapore as the Berliner Phil under Sir Simon Rattle toured the Far East; as it is customary with this orchestra the playing was first class.
Both works, the Rachmaninov and Mahler, are well known to audiences worldwide. I just wanted to see what the 3D experience would be like and I was not disappointed. The use of the camera is discreet and homes in to show how the players cope with the piece. You do get the depth when watched in 3 D mode, the string bows jump at you at times.
When a wide shot of the whole orchestra is shown you appear to be standing next to the conductor.
I hope that this new 3D format will be used more widely to record classical music and ballet as I think it enhances the performance, the Berlin Phil is known for technological innovations and their Digital Hall is a case in point.
More of this please from other performers.
