I WAS SURPRISED POSITIVELY, beyond my expectations.
on 27 April 2014
This Blu - ray Disc - New Year's Concert: 2014 - surprised me more than the previous, which I still find excellent too. But the conducting of Maestro Daniel Barenboim in Philarmonica Vienna makes musical themes chosen to gain more brightness, dynamic, more impact , but at the same time smoothness on the most romantic themes. An example of dynamic, brightness and impact I can quote the "Egypticher Marsch - op. 335", when all the musicians have an interesting vocal participation, greatly enriching the music performed. I thought I had seen everything about the picture quality in Blu-ray Disc, but this " New Year's Concertd 2014," the beauty and depth of the image is beyond anything I expected of a good BD, it seems like it I was watching all on a TV 4K ... in my Plasma 65VT50b. The sound quality of the orchestra is also excellent, very well laid out and with great orchestral power (but with a lower recording volume than 2009). It would be great if Daniel Barenboim returned to conduct more times New Year's performances in the future. I suggest everyone to watch the 3 bonus that are included in this exceptional BD, an extra surprise.
