Ratings and Reviews
Very good sound qualiry but annoying camera editing
The sound quality, and obviously quality of orchestra and programs are excellent. I run it with an optical cable from the TV through my CD player and then amplifier. The only issue I have is the lack of option to be able to select a steady camera view. The camera changes are practically every two seconds, this undermines the aural experience, results in eye fatigue and becomes annoying (I now hang a black sheet over the TV 😊). The Wiener Staatsoper stream service has a one view option, I hope here they can add this too. Also, through Apple TV I have gotten the "Stream could not be found" error message, it seems to work more consistently on Roku.
Live and archived concerts
Being able to watch live and archived concerts is almost like having tickets and perfect seats. The Berlin Philharmonic is one of the best orchestras in the world, so watching and listening to the beautiful music played by such very talented musicians is a privilege and an inspirational experience. I feel so grateful to have this app and to have a very fine music system that allows me the opportunity to enjoy so much of Maestro Sir Simon Rattle and the musicians of the Berliner Philharmonic. As important as the sound quality, is the technical expertise of the camera direction and wonderful synchronization. With this app I feel so fortunate. Highly recommend.
This is a wonderful opportunity to hear incredible music. The app does require a good internet service. All the complaints of the other reviewers are the problems of the owners’ slow service, not the app. These concerts are so valuable, it was well worth my increasing my internet service solely for this. The site is very easy to maneuver (phone, tv, and computer). The films and interviews are fascinating. Live concerts stream in perfectly, and there are no problems with the archives. I’m a goat farmer who lives in the middle of the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming. To have this caliber of music is extremely valuable. Thank you.
