Filmed by 24 cameras and backed by 64 tracks of digital audio, this concert video looks and sounds great. An optional subtext provides brief but incisive information about each musical number--there's no annoying, running oral commentary to obscure the music, but a few well-chosen words placed at the beginning of each number to heighten the enjoyment and understanding of each piece. --Tami Horiuchi

Using twenty-four 35mm cameras and 64 tracks of digital audio, this concert is recorded to bring magic to your playback system. The sound is spectacular, and the images are almost magic. You will hear the music, and see the performers (often backed by beautiful multi-image scenes to enhance the mood) as well as music video type inserts to keep the viewer's attention.
The performance includes 16 selections, ranging from the traditional to the eclectic holiday music. Their version of Silent Night, listed as Stille Nacht, is five and a half minutes of music magic. It must be heard!
As if the performance is not enough, this disc includes performance descriptions, interesting facts about each song and production notes.
Just to make sure that no producer or studio suit makes decisions that might adversely affect the creative genius of this group, they own the studio, and arrange and produce all their own material. To keep the live performance as razor sharp as their recordings, each performer wears a headset and listens to a click track while perfoming.
The perfect DVD to include with that DVD player you are giving as a gift.

This DVD is 55 minutes long. It is a recording of a live Christmas concert from the Orpheum Theater in Omaha. According to the technical notes here, it is recorded in Dolby Digital 4.0.

I highly recommend this dvd to anyone who loves Christmas carols. It is a must-see for Mannheim Steamroller fans.
Mannheim Steamroller has a unique sound, probably some of the most talented musicians around today. As usual the Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround takes you into another dimension, with picture perfect clarity that makes you feel like you're right there in the audience. Mannheim Steamroller are enthusiastic in their performance in a live fashion ~ leading the way is Chip Davis (drums/perccusion/recorders/toys), Jackson Berkey (piano/harpsichord/keyboards), Arnie Roth (concertmaster/violin), Almeda Berkey (harpsichord/keyboards), Ron Cooley (guitar/fretted instruments), Roxanne Layton (recorders/percussion) and Chuck Penington (conductor) This 56 minute "Christmas Live" concert takes us from the real world on a journey of delight featuring many favorite cues from the past Christmas albums.Read more ›
