It was delightful to watch Nights from The Alhambra last night, available at Netflix. It's the first time we enjoy a video of this artist, besides listening to her CDs. Sadly, the signal would not keep a steady streaming pace, constantly changing from Dolby Digital to the default setting of Neo 6 Cinema in our Yamaha AVR. Though still outstanding, I firmly believe that it's now time to evolve into a UHD Blu-ray version for ALL of Loreena's existing and future performances, which implies the inclusion of the highest quality audio formats that will further enhance the quality on each of her pieces. It will be a great and honorable tribute to bring the legacy of this distinctive artist into the cultural world of entertainment. Honestly, playing a DVD nowadays simply doesn't make any justice to really discover the full potential in listening a formidable voice surrounded by one of the most authentic lines of instrumentations out there. Simply, it's time to upgrade from DVD, and I believe no fan will disagree.
I respectfully disagree here. From the very first time I put the Alhambra DVD into my player I was overwhelmed by both the audio and the video quality of the DVD. In fact, I wrote a review on amazon.de, asking why HD-DVD (as it used to be called back then) was even invented. And this was ages ago...
Having upgraded both my TV set as well as the Blu-Ray player as of late I watched Alhambra during the christmas break and I was even more overwhelmed, given that today's technology is capable of up-scaling, etc.
But yes, I would love to be able to listen/watch to something more recent, too.
I would love to see a bluray release, would like to see HD audio file download as well. It be nice to purchase this music in a flac format. (no compression)
