Symphony – Live in Vienna was only available as a premium for a donation to the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) in the United States. A lower-level donation would yield a free copy of the DVD, and a higher-level donation would yield a set containing both the DVD and a companion CD. The 55-minute concert was recorded on 16 January 2008 at the Cathedral Stephensdom in Vienna. The audience consisted of a small group of invited guests and members of Sarah Brightman’s official website’s fan area, to whom free tickets were made available.
Recorded in 5.1 Surround Sound, the DVD has over 40 minutes of special features. They include a photo gallery, two separate interviews with Sarah concerning the production and the songs of Symphony, and an interview with Father Anthony Faber and historian Elisabeth Lloyd-Davis focusing on the location of the concert.
The CD also has a special bonus not available elsewhere — a studio recording of Sarah performing “Vide Cor Meum” by Patrick Cassidy.
