 Tanglewood 75th Celebration August 20, 2013 By John F. (Victoria, BC) See All My Reviews "We had the pleasure of being in Tanglewood for this wonderful concert so this DVD has special significance for us. Actually seeing and listening to one of the world's finest orchestras is always exciting and this recording serves to preserve for us the memories of being there. The recorded sound of the BSO, the soloists and the student orchestra is excellent, and the visual coverage is stunning." Report Abuse
