Audio/visual unsynchronised 

(at around 2h) The orchestra perform their piece for the reception and all the string players are playing "arco" (bowed). However the bass line is distinctly heard as "pizzicato" (plucked). Both the cello and the double bass players should be seen using their fingers to produce the notes and not their bows.
