  1. Leonard Bernstein only wrote one film score, and I have the Intrada release of that one. Copland did write a few of them... I have a couple of compilations of his film music, plus several recordings of his concert suites based on his film material, and I believe, two original soundtrack recordings. Gerswhin did spend his last year working in Hollywood, and John Mauceri's "The Gerswhins in Hollywood" remains being one of my favorite albums ever. I don't think that Kevin Puts, Michael Torke or John Adams ever wrote for film. From the golden age composers, I have too many to start mentioning them now. Portuguese composer António Pinho Vargas did write some film music, but I've never been able to get it.

    John T. Williams, the pianist

    Yes, Williams performed on that one and is listed on the credits. There is at least one CD release of that one.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. What you mean? Of course it will be on the broadcast. It's the first piece on the program, followed by the Williams.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. Program notes: http://bso.http.internapcdn.net/bso/images/program-notes/single-notes/Williams-Highwoods-Ghost.pdf

    Your favorite John Williams pictures

    Not my favorite picture, though a really special one, with two of my favorite composers.
  16. FYI, the first picture in @Ricard post (the same used in the MassLive review) isn't from this year's concert.
  17. WCRB streams worldwide. You just need to have an internet connection. I don't think that people are expected to record the live stream... I don't think it's the station idea, but you surely could record it if you want and have the expertise (nothing that special actually) to do so. WCRB hasn't broadcast Tanglewood on Parade since 2013. From 2014 they do produce a recording that was later available on-demand on the BSO website (as well as the remaining concerts that were broadcast live, which were also available on-demand at WCRB's site). I'm afraid that it isn't the case this year.
  18. There will be no on-demand availability as negotiations will only be resumed on the fall. Also, Tanglewood on Parade concerts haven't been broadcast for the past 4 years.
  19. The Friday, Saturday and Sunday concerts are all scheduled for broadcast, with the exception of live to film ones -- like last evening's West Side Story, hence the rebroadcast of the Pops concert from May. So, yes, the concert of August 19th is scheduled for broadcast. The Divertimento recording presented after the concert was recorded by Williams and the Pops in 1985.
  20. "To Lenny! To Lenny" wasn't included neither on the concert, nor on the broadcast. This is a rebroadcast from earlier in the season and included the exact same selections as in the original broadcast (which by the way wasn't broadcast live). Williams did conduct the piece as an encore at his annual Film Night concerts.

    John Williams Discography

    New re-issue of Mahalia Jackson's "Great Songs of Love and Faith" (1962), with John Williams conducting: https://www.fremeaux.com/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.product_details&flypage=shop.flypage&product_id=1849&Itemid=13 Out of curiosity, one of the musicians on the other album represented on this CD, "Make a Joyful Noise Unto the World", conducted by Edward Robinson, was Williams father, Johnny Williams, sharing the drums credits with Shelley Manne.

    John Williams Discography

    Forgot to add it on my original post, but Bass Galore was released on 1968.
