I purchased this Blue Ray partly on the existing review that gave it 5 stars. Artistically he is right. It is and amazing performence. The problem is that the source video is not done to todays standards. This concert was recorded in 2002. The blue ray seems to be a conversion from a lower definintion recording. Also the audio is not up to speed when compared to more recent recordings. It just isn't up to the quality of the following Blue Ray Concerts.

1. Brahms Piano Concerto No. 2, Achucarro, London Symphony
2. Beethoven Piano Concertos, Barenboim, Staatskapelle Berlin
3. Herbert von Karajan Memorial Concert, Ozawa, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Berliner Philharmoniker

I would definately recommend this recording. It is an amazing performance.

However, I will only give it 4 stars due to the less than superior video and audio quality.

We all get used to fine music making from this team - but this is one of the best. This was the final concert that Abbado gave with this orchestra as the chief conductor and the affection that the orchestra and Abbado shared with each other is quite evident throughout and the orchestra clearly rise to this very special occasion. The venue for this concert was Palermo in Italy so to some extent Abbado is playing to the home crowd and they love it with copious flowers raining down from the boxes and balconies at the end.

The Brahms violin concerto with Gil Shaham has come to be regarded as outstanding in a crowded market and is well able to be compared favourably with the best. A good forward momentum is maintained without any feeling of undue hurry. The playing of Shaham and the orchestra is fully sensitive to every nuance but this is done without undue expressive heaviness.

The Dvorak has the tremendous drive and spontaneity that you can get at some live concerts. As with the Brahms, there is a good forward momentum maintained but combined with sensitive playing from the orchestra and the soloists within the orchestra. This is a very exciting `live' experience.

The Verdi Overture encore maintains this excitement and this becomes to be a thrilling end to a particularly memorable event.

The whole concert is in good sound and with sympathetic camera work. The recording was made in 2002 and with genuine HD recording equipment. The producer, Paul Smaczny, had started using HD recording equipment since about 2000 and this results in crisp imaging and wide ranging sound presented in DTS 5.1 and stereo. (Another example of genuine HD recording and dating from 2000 is the Wagner Ring as conceived and conducted by Maazel).

The Berlin Phil is conducted by Italian Abbado in his last performance with them,at the opera house, Teatro Massimo in Palermo. The Egmont overture opens the concert,with speedy tempi. Gil Shaham plays the Brahms violin concerto with passion and at one with Abbado.However, Itzhak Perlman plays with feeling in the same concerto, conducted by Barenboim in a DVD. Being friends they have a great understanding with each other. There is nothing to choose between Perlman and Shaham.Except the sound is better in this blu ray. The symphony no 9, New world by Dvorak, will not disappoint. As an encore Abbado plays the Verdi overture Les Vepres Siciliennes. The orchestra plays with feeling in this bluray.

This is the best classical music video I have ever seen. It was one of those rare occasions where everything went right. These are the finest performances of these great and very familiar works that I've ever heard. Gil Shaham as absolutely amazing in the violin concerto, and Abbado and the orchestra are on top form throughout. The video direction is perfect, the picture is crystal-clear, and, most importantly, the sound quality is the best I've ever heard on a video recording. (Note: the brief travelogue about Palermo, included on the earlier 2005 DVD, is not included here.) This Blu-ray disc is a superb example of what the classical concert experience is all about. Bravo!
