Where are they?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Haydn: Symphony No 103 In E Flat Major / Symphony No 104 In D Major [DVD]  (DVD)
The peformance and recording quality are very good, but where is the orchestra?! Please be aware that you WON'T be seeing Barry Wordsworth and the Capella Istropolitana, as the description states. What you get instead is a series of 'moving snap-shots' of scenes around London (some markedly better than others) of which a fair number are jerky, and have an overall picture quality suggestive of some NTSC/PAL compatability problem. If you turn the telly off and enjoy the symphonies, in surround, it's still worth the price.
