  1. The first half of the four doesn't mean the first two concerts, it means the first half of each concert. You can look on the CSO site to confirm, you'll see each performance has two conductors listed.
  2. FYI he's been making that Nimbus 2000/wand/broomstick mixup for literally years lol, I wouldn't read anything into that!
  3. It almost certainly is going to be both Kaufman and Williams for all four performances.
  4. I don't recall exactly where it is, but I believe it was somewhere back there, yes.
  5. IIRC he did sign some autographs after the 2009 concerts, but in 2013 they had the rear entrance (through which JW leaves) blocked off so you couldn't really get all that close to it, and he got straight in his car and took off. So it wouldn't hurt to hang around the rear entrance before/after the show, but it's probably pretty unlikely.
  6. The full program for this concert has been posted: http://www.seattlesymphony.org/concerttickets/calendar/2017-2018/symphony/john-williams
  7. October 13-15 with the Cincinnati Pops http://cincinnatisymphony.org/concerts-plus-events/pops/1718-pops/music-of-john-williams/?utm_source=wordflymkt&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=singleonsale&utm_content=johnwilliams&sourceNumber=
  8. It did! JW conducted Scherzo for Motorcycle and Orchestra, A New Beginning and Throne Room and Finale. The pre-concert national anthem performance was also one of JW's arrangements though he didn't conduct that.
  9. What I recall him saying is that he would see a first cut of the film in a few weeks. I would assume Mass Live just extrapolated that to be the beginning of his work on the score.
  10. FYI, I checked my program and the orchestra is credited as the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra.
  11. From the front page: The concert is being aired Saturday, May 21 on WBGH
  12. Program: Keith Lockhart Conducting: Prelude to Ben-Hur Love Theme from Out of Africa Main Title, Fountain Theme, and Chez Maxim Waltz from Gigi Suite from Forrest Gump Selections from The Godfather Opening Sequence from Star Trek Into Darkness John Wiliams Conducting: Star Wars Main Title Rey's Theme March of the Resistance Princess Leia's Theme The Asteroid Field Luke and Leia Scherzo for X-Wings The Jedi Steps and Finale
  13. Yeah, I was at the concert too and this Twitter guy is way off. Nightscape has the quote correct.
  14. Is the Boston University concert actually conducted by JW? Unless I'm missing something, I don't see that indicated in the brochure.
  15. Yes, the Scherzo for X-Wings especially suffered from being buried by engine noises.
  16. Not HD, but the best I could find directly from CBS is here: http://download.cbsnews.com/media/2015/12/13/585321539580/60_OT_1213_dotcom_StarWarsJJAbrams_475721_796.mp4
  17. It's hard to tell due to the low resolution, but the best I can make out is "Opening | Starry Night".
  18. I thought it was a pretty good interview. We got confirmation that Williams has already started work on BFG as well.
