Israel Philharmonic Orchestra at 75 years.December 4, 2012By Luke Bryant (Oakleigh South, Victoria)See All My Reviews"The sheer joy of musicians making great music together was soon apparent as I watched and heard the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Zubin Mehta and three solarists, each uniting as one with orchestral members, followed by a soloist encore. This recording is a first class concert, highly recommended. Filmed in Hanger 11 a large theatre and arts complex in Tel-Aviv, recorded using DTS-HD Master Audio, the sound quality is first class and combined with outstanding camera work; including sharp, detailed close-ups, this is a performance on Blue-ray or DVD disc not to be overlooked by serious music lovers or those interested in technicalities. The disc includes a fascinating 52 minute documentary Coming Home relative to the orchestras 75 years history and its members form so many different countries. I give it five stars.
