As well as tracks from that album the band present unique new versions of their classic tracks. / Track Listing: 1. Close to the Edge 2. Long Distance Runaround 3. Don't Go 4. In the Presence Of 5. Gates of Delirium 6. Magnification 7. Starship Trooper 8. And You and I 9. Ritual-Nous Sommes Du Soleil 10. Your Move/I've Seen All the Good People 11. Owner of a Lonely Heart 12. Dreamtime 13. We Agree 14. Magnification 15. Give Love Each Day 16. Dreamtime 17. Spirit of Survival 18. Can You Imagine 19. In the Presence Of 20. Remember the Dream (Long Distance Runaround Remix)

Yes never needed a symphony to prove their sonic prowess. Even without keyboardist Rick Wakeman (replaced here by the skillful Tom Brislin), the veteran members (vocalist Jon Anderson, bassist Chris Squire, drummer Alan White, and guitarist Steve Howe) are masters of their prog-rock domain. And yet the addition of the young, photogenic European Festival Orchestra (for this Amsterdam performance in November 2001) offers a glorious expansion of the Yes sound, enhanced and fully integrated to create the Yes equivalent of Phil Spector's famous wall of sound. Three songs are included from 2001's Magnification, but it's the classics--including a spectacular, epic rendition of Relayer's "Gates of Delirium"--that make this the best of several Yes DVDs on the market. A behind-the-scenes documentary is perfunctory, and the video of "Don't Go" (from Magnification) seems redundant, but the option to view alternate visuals is welcome, and the excellent DTS mix is best enjoyed loud. --Jeff Shannon

And what a concert DVD this is!
ol' nuff n' den sum
The sound quality on this set is very good, maybe a little brassy when turned up really loud, but the mix is even and I could hear everyone fairly well.

For even the Mild YES fan, if you were thinking of buying ONE DVD, this is it.

Format: DVD
On November 21st and 22nd 2001 Yes visited the Heineken Music Hall in Amsterdam and gave 2 concerts ... the 2nd one ... was filmed and is now available on video and DVD. ... the DVD version [has] a beautiful mix of band and orchestra ... The DTS sound gives it all an extra dimension .
The concert starts with an overture by the orchestra, that is not visible at that moment. The background is a Roger Dean-like landscape.
After the intro the band starts with the epic Close to the Edge and, immediately, you sense the asset the orchestra is for this song. It brought tears in my eyes from emotion to see young orchestra members with such dedication to music that was written before they were even born. Also on screen there appear icons for animation in the background and there are multiple camera-angles in this song possible.
Next is Long Distance Runaround from the Fragile album with a beautiful orchestra opening that is really an asset to the song.
From the new album Magnification they played Don't go first. I think it's not their most powerful track of the album and it surprised me the song did it live very well.
In the Presence Off, also from their latest album, are, together with Dreamtime, my favourites. In arrangement and length it's a 2001 Yes semi-epic.
Then, oh my God, finally, after all these years, Gates of Delirium is been introduced. Together with C.T.T.E this is the mother of all Yes epics. Tom Brislin really showed his craftsmanship in the "war" part of the song. This is a perfect song to play with an orchestra and you can hear that they do a perfect job in the changeover from the "war" part to the "peace" part of the song .Soon oh Soon let's the song end in a sea of tranquillity. Multi-camera angles and animations of war are also visible during this song.

Format: DVD
This excellent production will rapidly become the Mecca of Yes on film. After nearly 34 years and counting the band had still not released an adequate visual representation of their powerful live concerts. `House Of Yes' (from the House of Blues on `The Ladder' tour) came nearest, but the 1970s attempts (`Yessongs' and `Live In Philadelphia') are sub par, and the 1996 `Keys To Ascension' video was ruined by post-production and appalling graphics. Now, finally, they've pulled it off. Two and a half hours of sublime music, intelligent filming, good direction, sensible production and great sound.
The occasion, as most reading this will know, is the 2001 Yes Symphonic Tour - in this case a concert in Amsterdam. The fact that the shoot took place in Europe adds to the enjoyment, as audiences in this part of the hemisphere tend actually to listen to music rather than to yell and scream while it is happening. This removes most irritating aural distractions from the listener's perspective, and avoids elimination problems at the production end.
The idea of Yes appearing with an orchestra was greeted with understandable scepticism in some quarters. The possibilities of overkill, mismatch or descent into musak were enough to make anyone who cares about their music nervous. Fortunately, composer Larry Groupe handles arrangements of classic material with taste and restraint, and the young European Festival Orchestra under Wilhelm Kietel was well settled in by the time this was filmed. Indeed they seem to be thoroughly enjoying themselves. It is good to be able to hear what they add. This was not always possible as a member of the audience.

Format: Blu-ray
The 2002 DVD release of Yes Symphonic Live has seen many hours in my home theater, showcasing Yes in this amazing concert with a symphony orchestra. I had longed to see this title released on Blu-Ray, so imagine my excitement when I found this new release in my local music store. Then imagine my disappointment when animations and film footage start to appear at key moments within this video, replacing the concert footage! These animated backgrounds were optional on the original DVD release, but not so in this Blu-Ray. The ultimate tragedy for me was during "The Gates of Delirium", my favorite song of this concert. As the band and orchestra wind up together and lock into an amazing groove for the song's middle "battle" section, cartoonish imagery of soldiers, tanks and planes flow across the screen, obscuring the band and orchestra performance! I turned the disc off right there and stuffed it into the back row of my collection. Three stars is all I can muster for what should have been a five star release on Blu-Ray. At least I still have that old DVD release to enjoy this concert.

Update: I do need to clarify - the amount of imagery is not staggering in context of the entire concert, which looks and sounds fantastic! But there is more than a few seconds of interruptions - for example, "Close to the Edge" has two animated sections that are each almost a minute long, and "The Gates of Delirium" battle sequence has two straight minutes of animation. There may be more, I didn't finish watching it. So, your patience for seeing this imagery will certainly vary from mine, but I watch a Yes concert to see the performers play, not to witness animations and video feeds obscure the experience. If such imagery doesn't bother you, then grab and enjoy this title!
