  6. So how come some titles can exceed this 5000 unit maximum? https://lalalandrecords.com/star-trek-the-motion-picture-2-cd-set/ https://lalalandrecords.com/star-trek-ii-the-wrath-of-khan-limited-edition-2-cd-set/
  7. According to some online shops there will be another release on March 18th 2022 - Standard Version 2Blu-Ray! See these italian shops: https://www.universalmusic.it/musica-classica/album/the-berlin-concert_34914390967/ https://www.dvd-store.it/Video/Blu-Ray/ID-76318/John-Williams-Live-In-Berlin-Blu-Ray-Disc-CD ... this japanese shop: https://joshinweb.jp/dp/0028948617142.html ... and several shops in the Czech Republic: http://tony.cz/index.php/eshop/john-williams-berliner-philharmoniker-berlin-concert-2brd.html https://www.musicrecords.cz/catalogue/hudba/williams-john/berlin-concert-2blu-ray/ https://www.bontonland.cz/john-williams-the-berlin-concert-2/
  8. Fortunately it is still available at their international shop: https://intl.varesesarabande.com/products/dracula-the-deluxe-edition
  9. Sold Out! https://www.varesesarabande.com/products/dracula-the-deluxe-edition
  10. I hope so. EuroArts have released more than a hundred DVDs & Blu-Rays with BPO concerts. https://www.euroarts.com/labels?keys=Berliner Philharmoniker So why not this one?!
  11. I hope they will release the concert on Blu-Ray or DVD just as they have released BPO's Waldbühne 2015 film music concert. https://www.euroarts.com/labels/6090-waldbuhne-2015-lights-camera-action
  12. So the concert is cut to separate videos for individual pieces, isn't it?
  13. Yes, I feel the same. Berlin's videorecording is more dynamic, more active and more changing. The pictures of playing musicians are more vivid and interesting. IMHO one of the worst and irritating camera angles in Vienna is the one on Anne-Sophie Mutter's back when she is playing violin solos. I want to see the soloist's face and not her (his) back with confused faces of some people in the audience in the background. BTW for my taste the people in the audience are too much visible in Vienna videorecording. Sorry, guys.
