I bought this DVD so that I could watch the Welsh National Orchestra in action while listening to the music. I was very disappointed. The DVD was ruined for me by the endless visual effects. These were a mix of what appeared to be clips from the news about war zones and the work of an artistic music `promo video' producer who had been given the green light to go over the top. I was quite dizzy by the end and the visuals had taken my attention off the music. This might be interesting for a `one off' showing but I just wanted to watch the orchestra playing this impressive music. The few glimpses that I did see of the orchestra showed them to be in an interesting formation in pretty atmospheric lighting. They played very well. I hope this performance can be re released without the distracting effects, or at least to give the choice of not watching them.
