I'll be short....it doesn't work, for one simple reason: in classical music, it's not enough to play a stupid scale very fast in one key to make it classical. With an orcherstra, malmsteen sounds exactly what it is: an annoying, insisting flurry of meaningless noise.

I once emailed his team to ask if he actually composed the arrangements. Guess what, they were done by 'the concert master'. No wonder, malmsteen doesn't have the skill to do that himself, yet he yaps forever about Bach or Vivaldi, as if he had anything to do with them. Give me a break, any musically literate person knows that Bach or Vivaldi would just treat him for what he his: a delusional, noisy, annoying guitarist.

The only thing that saves this record is the arrangements. Do you, reader, even know what these are? I am not talking just about how to arrange a piece for orchestra, I am saying how, for example, 'Black Star', a boring piece, sounds pretty good, because the concert master wrote countermelodies, better chord progressions, better bass line, etc etc, all stuff that malmsteen can't do.

All he can do is delude himself.

This is quite simply the most amazing piece of guitar playing I have ever seen. Yngwie is at his imperious best, playing his Fender Srat with the speed and precision of a virtuoso violinist. If you like any of Yngwie's music, you will not fail to be impressed by this staggeringly impressive concerto. And the orchestra isn't bad either. Roll on the sequel. Bravo. 100 stars. *****

Contrary to what some may fear Yngwie dosen't fight the orchestra he plays magnificently WITH them.It starts with an orchestra only Black Star then Malmsteen takes to the stage and an evening of as yet unsurpassed guitar playing commences.There are highly melodic pieces such as Icarus,Brothers and Fugue and then for fans of his usual style Vivace,Presto,Far Beyond the Sun,Blitzkrieg and Evil Eye are sure to entertain.I must say I am mostly keen on his rock instrumentals like,Majestic Blue,Baroque and Caprici,and on this evidence where he is clearly having a ball hopefully we shall be treated to further orchestral displays in the future.File alongside Uli Jon-Roth's, Metamorphosis of the seasons ,and Yngwie's apearance on G3.I wanted this for a long while but my player is not multi-region,thankfully on Amazon.COM an all regions version is avaliable.Wow!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Much better with an orchestra 13 Feb. 2008
By shaun mcneil - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I put off buying this DVD for years, in fear that it would be another yngwie showing off being too much to handle or listening to for more than a few minutes. After getting this DVD and seeing that the first song was "Black Star" Yngwie's most popular song, I was pleased to hear that it was just the orchestra playing it and not Malsteen. It gave the song a new fresh air about it. I also found Malsteen to play a more laid back, less show off-ish set. I can honestly recommend this DVD to someone who just wants to see a talented electric guitar player with an orchestra as well as anyone who thinks Malsteen is over the top on everything and would like to see him set back and just playing it properly with out adding a million extra notes per second of every song.

The bonus material is nothing special. One extra song that did not make it onto the full set. The second item on the extra features is a still of Malsteen with his voice being interviewed, you do not even get to see him talking. If you want to hear how a band with drums differs from an orchestra with out drums, then you will love the interviews.

5.0 out of 5 stars Defining Yngwie! 8 Mar. 2007
By Gator - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Interestingly enough, Yngwie, in the special features expresses this concert as the defining moment in his career. I couldn't agree more. It is pure classical and quite refreshing. I was particularly happy to see some old favorites included in this show such as "Far Beyond The Sun" and "Evil Eye" two of my favorite Malmsteen compositions. A truly flawless performance by Yngwie and the New Japan Philharmonic Orchestra. The production is amazing, both audio and visual. The editing keeps the show moving at a nice pace. In the special features interview, Yngwie promises another orchestral show with new compositions. I can only imagine how amazing it will be as Yngwie will only get better and better at his pure classical endeaver! I look forward.

5.0 out of 5 stars TOUR DE FORCE playing and performance! BRAVO! 17 May 2008
By CQ DX - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Yngwie Johann Malmsteen melds rock and classical guitar like no one else has. His penultimate technical, passionate, unique, and emotive playing is legendary, and he has finally achieved his dream by playing with (being a member of) a full classical orchestra. The combination is mind-blowing, and maestro Yngwie delivers a passionate, entertaining performance that truly showcases his song compositions and his love and mastery of classical rock guitar. This is one of the top music DVD's I own, and I own well over 100!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sensational, the milestone of genius. 27 Nov. 2005
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Well, it is not just a another guitar concerto, it is nothing short but out of this world performance. But is is even more then that. Malmsteen eventually found himself , he found his form, he freed his melodies from pointless rock noise and demonstrates what could be guitar music! For those who after watching it dare to say "the same leeks, the same scales": learn listen to great music, learn to discern and segregate.

This concert nailed Malmsteen as an indisputable genius and if would performed here in Chicago I would buy a ticket for not matter what price.

The orchestra sounds open, innovative , clear. The fascination by music permeates everything: from audience to singers. I think this DVD is a treasure it is a rare artifact of real musician who had found himself.

His guitar sounding not only leading but sometimes very lyric, the culture of voicing is enormous, every note, every lick, every intonation. Guitar has a different character that is difficult to unite with tonality and coloration of orchestra but what had been done here is plain unbelievable.

Malmsteen is not a "sportsman" he is musician I can't express enough of how amazing polyphony he created is.

Take this DVD, it is like nothing else, it is a milestone of genius, it is manifestation of ingenious great music. I'm absolutely fascinated and thrilled by it.
