Beethoven's 9th is a perfect vehicle for DVD. You have a large orchestra, a nice size chorus and four soloists. This 9th was performed to celebrate the end of communism for Czechoslovakia. I found the performance extremely enjoyable. The tempos are on the slow side but the music never fails to keep moving. The orchestral playing is not perfect but has plenty of feeling. The soloists are good, if not great. The chorus is superb. The video quality is excellent. I wish there were some extras but they are quite rare in classical music DVDs. This would make a real nice gift.

Verified Purchase
This is a marvelous occasion captured nicely on video--the Ninth presented to Czechoslovakia by the Civic Forum, the political organization that shepherded the country from the Velvet Revolution of one month earlier to a state of political independence from the Soviets. The Czech Philharmonic is there in all its splendor, with four soloists in grand form and with the conductor, Vaclav Neumann, having transmitted his musical intentions. Neumann is a conductor who, unspectacularly, gets everything right. The more you hear him, the more you like him. My only caveat about the video is that Neumann himself doesn't film very well. When the camera is on him, one does better to listen instead of look. Listening to this video will put you among the stars. My favorite video moment is at the bitter end, after the music is done and all the credits have rolled by: the head of the Civic Forum, Vaclav Havel--soon to become president of the republic--comes on stage with a bouquet for the singers, and the hall goes wild. It only lasts a few seconds, and then it's night. The perfect culmination--but you have to hang in there to see it.
