A battered physical copy of the above has eventually arrived in my letterbox.

 

It took as long as "The Secrets of Dumbledore" OST CD from Japan (over land).

Wonderful!!! Enjoy!

 

(I keep checking weekly if a SACD of VC#2 is added so we can have a full set. Maybe even Gathering of Friends too!)

Yes @lairdo. I'm anticipating V#2 should come as well. Although the video will have the blu ray sound as well. Hopefully with Dolby Atmos.

So, I bought a digital concert hall ticket back in the day to watch the concert live. Now I got a letter from Berlin containing a brochure for the 22/23 season, a free 7 day ticket for the digital concert hall/archive, and a 10% discount for a 12-month ticket for the same!

Me too!

I just checked out some pieces by Jörg Widmann, because you don't find much free stuff on the internet. This piece https://www.digitalconcerthall.com/en/work/51214-1 'Tanz auf dem Vulkan' (Dance on the volcano) is absolutely amazing! Anyone who has received free 7-day access should use it for watching this. But there are so many more good performances!

 

Like this amazing perfrmance of Tom and Jerry https://www.digitalconcerthall.com/en/work/20456-6 I love it!!:lol:

The timpani player from the JW concert, another percussionist and a viola player from the JW concert play a nice cat-and-mouse game there!

I finally took the shrinkwrap off my physical CD edition today, and am listening to the concert in any form for the first time right now

 

The performance is really good.  The ending of the Raiders March was interesting, it felt extra "militaristic"

 

Oh man, just got to his introduction to Princess Leia's theme.  That story was so brief and funny the first time I heard it, but is so elongated for no good reason in this iteration.  Oofta.

Where's the DVD though? I want my dad to see this concert!

You are meant to buy him a DG stage or BPO Digital Concert Hall voucher for Christmas...or a Blu-ray player.

To my big surprise, this airs on Norwegian TV tonight. But already available to stream. Watching now, not sure there is much from the first day when I was there. The anecdotes are a little different from what I remember.

 

Most of it is from the third day - I can see myself pretty much every time the camera view includes the middle of the 3rd (?) row.

We know that Leia's Theme is from the Thursday when we were there, as they didn't perform it any other night.

Yeah, but that wasn't part of the TV program. From STAR WARS, they played "The Adventures of Han", "Yoda's Theme" and "Throne Room & Finale" (and "The Imperial March" as an encore?). Perhaps the TV program is different from the Blu-ray (I don't own the Blu-ray yet).

ahh ok. Yeah, thinking about it, I’m fairly sure we had the same TV program of it on UK tv last Christmas. Fools! 😂 Leia definitely on the Blu-ray. 
 

I have no idea why, but I haven’t devoured and obsessed quite so much over the Berlin Blu-ray as much as the Vienna. But I watched it this Christmas Eve and it’s so good!!
