  1. I think we all noticed. But it really isn’t relevant. You have information you can’t give us. Fine. But you can’t expect us to take information we don’t have into account when making up our minds about this rumour. Obviously, I hope he doesn’t retire. And like he has said many times himself I don’t think he will - unless, of course, something health-related happens. We have no reason to believe or speculate about that, though. I keep having this (naive, I’m sure) idea that Williams will age like my great-grandma who retired at age 98 (and only due to poor sight). She’s turning 107 this summer.
  2. 'Cast a Christmas Spell', 'Fluffy's Harp Lullaby' and 'Double Trouble' are also source music. Personally, I prefer it in the score presentation If it fits into the body of the score. I've placed 'A Winter's Spell' after 'The Snowball Fight', it fits perfect to me.

    What are your favorite "obscure" scores?

    Oh, right, of course. I'm a bit stressed out at the moment, haha!

    What are your favorite "obscure" scores?

    Yes, but I think it's out of print. Fair warning; the score contains too much mickey mousing, but the themes are great. Haha, true. But while it's fun to here the Godfather waltz (edit: the love theme!) arranged in many different ways (like this silly arrangement) Fortunella is much more than just that theme.

    Yes! I hope Netflix releases an official soundtrack.

    What are your favorite "obscure" scores?

    I too have a hard time deciding what is considered "obscure". I guess it differs from person to person. These are some of my favorites I don't see get mentioned often; "Valhalla" by Ron Goodwin (1986) "Fortunella" by Nino Rota (1958) "Himalaya - l'enfance d'un chef" by Bruno Coulais (1999) "Bébé(s)" by Bruno Coulais (2010) "Flåklypa Grand Prix" by Bent Fabricius-Bjerre (1975) "Hannibal & Jerry" by Thomas Hass (the songs excluded) (1997) "Stato interessante" by Ennio Morricone (1977) There are plenty of others, but I'm unsure how "obscure" they are (some of them were Oscar-nominated, after all). Like "Avalon" (Randy Newman), "The Secret Garden" (Zbigniew Prisoner), "Les triplettes de Belleville" (Benoît Charest), "Sunshine" (Maurice Jarre), "Nebraska" (Mark Orton), "Far from the Madding Crowd" (Craig Armstrong), "Mr. Bean's Holiday" (Howard Goodall), "In Bruges" (Carter Burwell), or the television scores for "Poirot" (Christopher Gunning), "Midsomer Murders" (Jim Parker) and "30 Rock" (Jeff Richmond). Okay, I might have included some quite known scores. 😅 They're all worth a listen, anyway, I guess.
  7. Ost means cheese in Danish, as well. That confused me a bit as a kid, when I started getting into online film music discussions.
  8. His agility reminds a lot of my great grandma when I was a child. Back then she was also in her 80's. She's 20 years older than Williams, though (born in 1912), and still around today.
  9. Wow, that Great Hall Ceiling alternate is great. Well done and thank you, @Docteur Qui!
  10. Hogwarts Forever also disappears after the Quidditch match.
  11. Like “Hogwarts Forever”, “Double Trouble” could be interpreted as a theme for the school that almost disappears completely after the Quidditch match for some reason.
  12. This set is the best album I have ever bought. It’s still unreal to me that all of my favourite music from my childhood is newly remastered and released. I’ve been looking forward to discussing every second of Williams’ scores since the set was announced. Unfortunately due to a tragedy in my family my life turned upside down this December. I simply haven’t got the time, physically nor mentally, to truly enjoy this wonderful music at the moment. I just want all of you who participate in this thread to know that reading your interesting, funny, analytical posts on these favourite scores of mine really has been a much needed and appreciated ‘escape’ from reality. Keep up the good discussions, guys!
  13. Not sure I get what you mean. Any examples?
  14. No, you’re right. It’s on the OST as well, I think.
  15. Probably people who aren’t fans of film scores. Most people.
