  1. What will the title of SW Ep. IX be?

    9t*r W@r5: R2D2 In Space
  2. In New Zealand, Fett means "obese".
  3. Ben Palmer is obviously looking forward to conducting this at the Royal Festival Hall next month. He will also be conducting Jaws and Home Alone in the UK next year.
  4. The Classical Music Recommendation Thread

    Finally someone has uploaded this fabulous performance of Richard Rodgers's Slaughter On Tenth Avenue by the John Wilson Orchestra at the BBC Proms in 2012. I hear quite a bit of influence on John Williams's jazzy side in this.
  5. The Official Bernard Herrmann Thread

    First I saw Marnie - Live In Concert played by the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra at the Northcott Theatre in Exeter, performed in period costume under candlelight and with a fantastic firework finale. More recently I had the privilege of watching The Trouble With Harry (In Concert) interpreted by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra under the assured direction of the ghost of Herbert von Karajan. They did a suite from It's Alive as an encore which brought the house down, that house being the Bath Halls in Scunthorpe. It will live long in my memory! No, you're right Richard.
  6. Anyone in the UK with the Sky Arts channel may be interested to know that The Adventure Continues documentary (presumably the same content as the DVD on the fourth disc of this set) will be shown tomorrow evening (Wednesday 27th December) at 8.45 p.m. and again on Friday at 6.45 p.m.
  7. Best Christmas Music

    Listen to this, it'll blow your socks off.
  8. BBC Proms 2017

    This has just started. You forgot, didn’t you? 🤪
  9. THE POST - SCORE Thread

    Earthquake is another one. Something For Remy, Something For Rosa and Miles' Pool Hall are all (album versions of) source music cues heard in the film - in a restaurant, in a supermarket and in a bar respectively.
  10. John Williams YouTube tributes thread

    What better proof of the global appeal of John Williams's music could there be than Somewhere In My Memory performed by an Indonesian orchestra and chorus?
  11. BBC Proms 2017

    The more popular BBC Proms concerts are often broadcast again around Christmas time. I strongly suspect that they quietly dropped it from the programme due to the Grenfell Tower disaster in June, although the reason was never announced as far as I know.
  12. BBC Proms 2017

    The John Williams Prom will be shown again on BBC Four this Thursday 21st December. It should then be available again on the iPlayer if you can access it. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b08ympvh I took a few photos during the original concert but I don't think I ever shared them here.
  13. the mstrox thread

    He said Automan.
  14. The Gabriel Yared Thread

    The English Patient is the latest film to receive the live to picture treatment at the Royal Albert Hall in London next October. There will also be a Q&A with Gabriel Yared before the film. The English Patient I am not at all familiar with Gabriel Yared's work apart from one track for The English Patient.
  15. Your favorite John Williams pictures

    The photos of John Williams with C3PO and R2D2 at the Royal Albert Hall almost certainly date from 1978. Williams conducted the London Symphony Orchestra in a concert entitled LSO In Space on 16th February 1978, famously sharing conducting duties with the camp robot. The concert featured music from Star Wars and "other great space music". I wonder who the two young ladies are and why they appear to be dressed in Edwardian outfits. Perhaps they are ghosts!
