 Am I in Russia? August 16, 2016 By Kenneth P. (Dover Plains, NY) See All My Reviews "Totally terrible! This was basically a rehearsal so that the music,beautiful as it was,was interrupted by conversations in Russian thereby destroying the flow and the listener's enjoyment.Furthermore,the production quality was primitive.Whoever did the filming needs to look for another line of work.I looked in vain for something positive to say but the best I can do is to reaffirm the magnificence of Mozart and the expertise of the performers but,alas,this DVD just doesn't do anyone justice."
