  1. Outside Williams's soundtracks, can't remember the last one I bought by another composer -- actually I can, it was Solo, but then again, it was because of Williams involvement. Most likely was something from a golden age composer. But I do have a large selection of soundtracks on my collection, thought very few by the younger generation of composers.
  2. Besides Williams I'm a great fan of Leonard Bernstein, Aaron Copland, George Gershwin, Kevin Puts, Michael Torke and John Adams... All Americans, now that I look at it. Of my very own home country, I love both the jazz and classical work of António Pinho Vargas and I've been discovering the work of Luís Tinoco. Film music wise, I love the guys from the old days of Hollywood: Korngold, Waxman, Herrmann...

    Williams Star Spangled for Brass

    I think they only released his 2004 arrangement for band, that was first performed when he was the Rose Bowl Grand Marshall.

    Across the Stars for Anne-Sophie Mutter

    I'm really looking forward to this one... even more now, as I have a soft spot for Cinderella Liberty

    Across the Stars for Anne-Sophie Mutter

    She actually said so at an interview during her Australian tour, this past summer.

    Kickstarter for Trumpet Concerto, with Williams conducting

    They will be performing (and recording) the oboe concerto this coming season.
  8. It has been played because the concert took place at 14:30. WCRB's Sunday concerts aren't live broadcasts. Sorry for creating such confusion.
  9. What you mean? Of course it will be on the broadcast. It's the first piece on the program, followed by the Williams.
  10. Well, he doesn't suggest directly that Lenny is the Ghost, but at the same time lets the listener make his own mind who might be the Ghost. So each one can freely speculate. By the way, the TMC Orchestra only played one piece on the concert before the Williams, that one being the Outdoor Overture by Aaron Copland.
  11. While I do believe Kousevitsky did write some music, he is mostly remembered as a conductor, for his tenure with the BSO and for creating Tanglewood. Since there are some quotes in disguise of Bernstein's music, one can speculate that the Ghost might be Lenny.

    Your favorite John Williams pictures

    Not my favorite picture, though a really special one, with two of my favorite composers.
  14. FYI, the first picture in @Ricard post (the same used in the MassLive review) isn't from this year's concert.
