Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
A musical affair.
What a thrill it was for me to come across the Berlin Philharmonic app – this legendary group of musicians! I have been watching it for three nights and enjoying it immensely. In addition to the wonderful performances I have been enjoying the camera work. For me, it’s wonderful to have a close-up of the section that is making an important musical statement. And what ensemble playing! The perfection of the horn section, just to name one, is truly amazing. I’m also enjoying the interviews with the conductors on the soloists. It’s wonderful to get to know the musicians in this kind of intimate setting.
