See the Seattle Symphony on television in high definition


If you missed it on Saturday and Sunday night, you have a few more chances left. Set your DVR to record Seattle Symphony from Benaroya Hall: Brahms, Kernis and Kodály on one of its handful of repeat airings this week (the next one is tonight at 6pm on KCTS-HD). According to the story in the Seattle Times, it includes close-ups of nearly every member of the orchestra so you can watch their fingerwork or their facial expressions, plus a behind-the-scenes cam so you can finally find out what the conductor and soloist are doing when they step backstage during the curtain calls.

    I would be more interested in HEARING the symphony in high-def. As usual sound quality is treaded unfairly compared to image quality.

    HDTV supports Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound, so the audio might actually be decent. (I’m not sure this brodcast uses the full audio capabilities of HDTV).
