This is out now digitally in any country where it's already Friday, and some people got physical copies already too.

Anybody on FSM listen to it yet? What do you think?


It‘s magnificent, starting with the uplifting Flight to Neverland and delivering one spectacular arrangement and performance after the other.

Definitely recommended.

I'm getting this Blu-ray set, but it will forever and ever be a dual experience for me. On the one hand, immense frustration that I had to sell my ticket due to other obligations and the envy I feel towards those who were able to attend, and on the other hand delight in seeing Williams conduct a great concert, in sparkling sound and video.

My Amazon order still says Release date: Friday, October 2, 2020. I'll probably check this out on streaming so I don't have to wait.

I'll probably just wait until the CD is released on it's own (which appears to be December for some reason) as I don't have a Blu-ray player. I rarely buy DVDs though anything in the past I've wanted I've always been able to get it on DVD, whereas this seems to be only Blu-ray.

Got mine delivered today (Deluxe version with bluray)
and to my surprise, the Bluray has a Dolby Atmos 9.1.4 Sound (Along with HD MA Audio 5.1 and 2.0)
Picture Format is 1080i frown

package : cardboard frown ( i can not understand, why they produce things like that)

Bluray: Region free smile

The CD is out; it's released simultaneously with the Blu-ray/CD edition.

I listened to parts of the CD (the "Imperial March" and the Jaws and Hook selections). Great recording. Spectacular sound, but I am totally biased... it's really been my wish since the 1980s that John Williams would one day conduct the Wiener Philharmoniker on their own turf... now it has actually happened. :-)

Not checked the Blu-ray yet, but I have the impression the recordings for the CD were done concurrently with the 2 concerts but without audience (more like a studio recording), my cursory listening revealed no audience noise, no coughs, nor applause.

Yes I appreciate that but I don't want to spend a lot of money on that set when I'll never watch the Blu-ray, hence why I'll wait until I can get just the CD.

Sorry, that's what I meant (and just rectified in the post): you can already buy just the CD if that is all you want.

But CD is much shorter! The entire concert is available only on Blu-Ray.

CD - 13 tracks.
Blu-Ray - 19 tracks (entire concert) + 1 track with video interview.

All the pieces that Anne Sophie recorded for ‘Across the Stars’ are omitted from the cd thus not duplicated on another cd, so to have them on the Blu & not the CD makes perfect sense to me.

Here is an Amazon UK link to order the Blu/CD combo...

I appreciate that but as I said before I have no facility to play Blu-ray so the CD will have to do. I also have the recent Across The Stars CD, I assume that's why most of the tracks featuring Mutter aren't on this new CD.

Also it would have to be a 2 CD set to fit in the whole 2 hour concert. Just add the Across the Stars tracks to a playlist with the Vienna CD to replicate the concert as presented on the Blu Ray

Yes, the selection of pieces that are on the Vienna Philharmonic Blu-ray only but not on the CD are indeed on "Across The Stars", performed by the "Recording Arts Orchestra of Los Angeles", which is presumably a pickup up orchestra consisting of top Hollywood session musicians. Fine recordings.
