5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best BBC Proms ever., 5 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Celebration of Classic MGM Film Musicals [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
I was very pleased with this show that I wrote to BBC to see if can lure them into convincing 2Entertain to release a blu-Ray edition of this programme. I lived in Cardiff dor four consecutive years, always looking forward to the BBD Proms, but this is by far the best I had the chance to see.

Needless to say, I an 100% pro-preservation kind of person. It is a shame that the original MGM music sheets were discarded and used in a parking lot. If any good came from this was that it gave a chance to maestro John Wilson to pursue and succeed in his endeavour to restore all those magnificent orchestrations.

The show also served for an interesting purpose which is to let us fans of those MGM musicals to have a clear perception of how would these arrangements sound like in today's multichannel sound tracks. Surely, we would be better off if these tracks were transferred to a hi-res codec, such as those currently used for BD-Video. Clearly, the sound capture of the show is great in so small measure because of the wizardry of BBC's engineers.

This is certainly a must own disc, for either MGM, music, or orchestral music fans, students or any film buff. Highly recommended!
