I find it really hard to get through this album. The tempo is so slow compared to the original version! and it's really lacking the energy, rush and passion the originals make you feel. I find it pretty underwhelming.

Most cameras at live events are 1080i. As long as your display has a decent de-interlacer, you should be just fine.

VERY EXCITED to hear the Atmos mix! Williams and Anne-Sophie Mutter did a promo video about it:

I on the other hand found it grand. I mean, it's recorded in the Golden Hall in Vienna, one of the top concert locations in the world, and these are finely shaped concert performances that highlight the structure and clarity, so for these pieces in that room, I found the tempo well judged.

Loved watching this last night. Wonderful concert.

The CD is luxurious as well - sound is so stunning. That brass!

Blu-ray still not due in the US until October, correct? Any sources to get it sooner, region free or region A? Will be a great Atmos demo disc for me smile

The Blu-ray is Region free, so you could order it from anywhere it's available.

I'm so glad that this album decided to cut out any applause. It also has fantastic sound as is clear just from the MP3s on Spotify. Purchased CD quality FLAC from 7 Digital just now.

Why cut out the crowd? This is supposed to be a live recording/experience, right ?

I've never understood the removal of the audience when it's a live recording. Apart from albums where the "live" part of it isn't the selling point.... like the Dudamel and Lockhart Williams albums. (Doesn't one of these keep the applause after the very last track? Maybe I'm imagining that.) But this is "John Williams IN Vienna." Very much a specific live event release. Strange choice I think. Given we have clean recordings of pretty much everything on the album anyway.

But I suppose between the CD and the BluRay we have both. So I can't complain. Even though it might sound like I just did smile

I can't understand why the audience is included in half of the concert releases, or at least not drastically reduced in length. Nothing sucks me out of the experience quite like two seconds of applause after every track. I could understand for a video release but on CD or now digital audio streaming it always seemed out of place to me. I appreciate the perspective from those who are disappointed to hear applause is not included.

Well, you get the applause on the Blu-ray and without the applause on the audio CD, so more or less everything is covered. There are classical live recordings that are the touched up with recordings done without an audience so they sound more like studio recordings. I am pretty sure that's what they did here. I think the Williams In Vienna disc sounds very good, and they did a good job not including the applause in this case, especially as the disc does not cover the entire concert anyway. So it's more like Williams conducted a pure Vienna Philharmonic studio recording, but you get all the concert experience on the Blu-ray. Best of both worlds.

The version I ordered is from CD Japan. Includes MQA encoded version as well. Should be the ultimate version.

While I'm not a hip or famous music critic (wink wink), I thought some of you might enjoy reading this reflection on the John Williams concert in Vienna:
