2.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect - but I may return it August 1, 2008
Format:DVD
When I saw that Mikhail Pletnev recorded the Tchaikovsky Concerto #2 in DVD version, there were no second thoughts. I immediately ordered it and couldn't wait for it to arrive. Last night, I put it on and had a major disappointment. Although the sound is nearly perfect and the photography fantastic, in the Concerto the syncing was off! The sound of a crashing chord would be followed a second later by Pletnev's hand coming down on the chord.

Perhaps this might not bother other people but I found myself looking away and just listening to his gorgeous playing. On the other hand, I bought a DVD to watch and not a CD to listen. The same problem may have been there in the symphonic works but it wasn't as noticeable as when watching a pianist up close. What a shame - this ruined an otherwise fantastic DVD for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Opinion April 25, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The sync between the audio and visual in the DVD I received was perfect. I hesitated to buy this DVD because I had read a review that said they were not in sync.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Fifth Symphony October 17, 2010
Format:DVD
The outstanding performance of the Fifth Symphony alone may well be worth the price of the Tchaikovsky Cycle's fifth volume. Fedoseyev and his orchestra are unsurpassed in the intensity and the probing depth of their interpretation, which is much more than idiomatic as it considers every harmonic nuance and every detail without ever losing momentum, always aware of the grand circular structure. The musicians play with great finesse and polish, a few bloopers in the horns notwithstanding. Tacked on is the youthful Overture in F major, a fairly unmemorable piece. The disk is rounded out with the Second Piano Concerto, stunningly played by Mikhail Pletnev. Less popular and melodically inventive than the First, the Second Concerto is extremely demanding of the soloist, and steely-fingered Pletnev handles all the difficulties with bravura. Perhaps the concerto's most attractive part is the second movement with its songful dialogue between solo violin and cello, played beautifully by the concertmaster and the principal cellist. Needless to say, members of the audience - almost full house on the occasion - respond enthusiastically, as they did to the Violin Concerto, even with applause between movements, which is considered a faux pas by some in Europe.
