  1. The short is about basketball. It stands to reason that it will premiere near or at the beginning of the nba season, which is late October (and fall).
  2. The "concert version" is just the recorded film score. Williams does have a four piece concert suite. Two of the pieces (immigration and civil rights pieces) are modified, particularly the latter, which is extended by a good minute or so.
  3. He has also mentioned the second movement of his violin concerto as among his best. Of Star Wars themes, he has said Yoda's is his favorite (though that was pre-Rey).
  4. Isn't the full broadcast two posts above?
  5. adults who do not seem to realize they are not kids.
  6. Why would you think it would be?
  7. The implied title is "Spielberg at 70: The Music of His Movies, well at least the Music any Sane Person Might Have an Interest In."
  8. Many of the changes go well beyond subtle: different orchestrations, fairly extensive extension of the second thematic movement, elimination of the one the OST themes.
  9. My guess is most members do not know this is available. As Bespin noted in the Tanglewood thread, it can be found here: https://www.bso.org/mediacenter It was performed during the Tanglewood on Parade concert.
  10. I am not aggrandizing anything and how a comment by a nobody on the internet could cheapen JW's legacy is beyond me. Typically directors have a say, and usually the final say, in who composes music for their films. In the case of the new trilogy that simply is not the case. It is Williams choice to take or leave the assignment. Thus, there is a real factual difference in the relationship between director and composer versus the vast majority of other films. As for being beholden to a vision, you are right, but the deeper point is that Williams created the musical part of that vision in the first place, which is why the above relationship is what it is. Obviously, any of these directors are going to prefer Williams as their first choice either way.
  11. It means there is a 0 percent chance Williams score can be rejected. The director is at his mercy, so to speak. here is the Variety article: http://variety.com/2016/film/news/star-wars-episode-viii-release-date-1201684136/
  12. When it comes to SW, these directors are working on a Williams picture, not vice versa. VIII was originally a May release. It was pushed back due to a last minute rewrite of the script (evidently, to expand upon the VII character arcs).
