    All I have is "Queen: Symphony: Royal..." and I seem to remember a performance with the Royal Symphony Orchestra but don't know if it was while Freddie was still with them or not.

    This would be the premiere concert of the excellent "Queen Symphony" (also on CD) by Tolga Kashif so it's not really "Queen".

    I can tell you recommend it but does it have a "hooked on classics" feel to it or is it really powerful classical stuff, in other words does the arrangement differ greatly from the originals or are they just straight classical copies?

    It's not "Queen songs done by an orchestra" at all. Mr. Kashif wrote an entire symphony of original music and incorporated Queen songs into it. It's brilliant.

    I doubt I'll get the DVD though, the CD suits me just fine.

    As far as I know, Brian was involved with this and he and Roger were there when it was performed and by all accounts it was awesome...

    While Brian wasn't involved in the project, he does endorse it, in fact he's highly complimentary of the symphony.
