 Bel Canto Fan January 3, 2012 By Perry S. (New Plymouth, -) See All My Reviews "This is a historic Telecast recording from 1962/63, in black and white, so it is obviously copied from a video recording.
The picture is not as distinct as we are now used to, but in my mind this does not matter in an instrumental DVD. Can still see everything quite satisfactorily and can certainly clearly see all the close-ups of the playing. The sound is good and it is great to see and hear one of the older school playing. What a pity the oldies can't be recorded on today's equipment.
For my mind, it is a bit expensive for the quality, but I wanted these two concertos on the same disc, so this was an obvious choice."
