What can I say? I'm biased about this symphony because it's been my favorite for almost a half century so I jumped at the chance to see it performed (on tape, in this case). It's nicely filmed, so no regrets on this purchase.
However, the famous score is still better to hear than see, plus there was no "stereo" as advertised. The picture, though, was sharp and the cameras quickly transfer to whatever instrument is being featured at the moment. It's done is a classy way, too.
Thus, I found this interesting the few first viewings but by the third or fourth, I found myself just using it as background music while I did something else. However, when the dramatic parts in the third and fourth movements were playing, I would be drawn back to the screen.
