    The Bear McCreary Thread

    I've only had the one listen so far. Too little time! I think I got a Cloverfield Paradox/Da Vinci's Demons vibe from it. Nice choral work. Need to give it another listen.

    What Is The Last Score You Listened To?

    I actually listened to this for the first time yesterday. Was thoroughly impressed with it. Only bought it to complete the Alien set but it turns out it's a fun listen.
  3. James Southall's review. http://www.movie-wave.net/a-celebration-of-john-williams/
  4. Well, I think that was something special. The LSO playing John Williams with such skill and passion. And the maestro listening along to the performance through the radio from his hospital bed... I may never get to see Mr. Williams in person himself, but if I don't this was still some night to be a witness to.

    What Is The Last Score You Listened To?

    Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban: Live in Concert - John Williams Jane Eyre - John Williams The Hollywood Sound - John Williams & The LSO
  6. Truly devasting news. We got so close. All the best to the maestro. It just wasn't meant to be... Still, I would have gone to this concert anyway and I'm sure all who attend will have a great time. I'm sad but now that I've had time to process it, I'm still excited to hear the LSO play some of the greatest music ever written.

    Harry Potter - Live to Projection Concerts

    Well. After today's earlier devastating news, I was lucky enough to have an antidote that has somewhat cheered me up. Prisoner of Azkaban live in concert at the Royal Albert Hall. My favourite Potter book, film and score. It was a fun evening. The film is actually quite amusing and watching this kind of stuff with a crowd is perfect. The window to the past and the buckbeak stuff are some of my favourite Williams pieces. I eat them up everytime. A real highlight was the stuff with the choir when Harry defeats the dementors. I hadn't noticed before, or had forgotten how in sync and powerful music and picture are together in this sequence. Anyway, nothing will make up for not getting to see the maestro in person, but we are truly living in the golden age of film music concerts.

    Gladiator Live // Royal Albert Hall

    Got to see this yesterday. Probably my favourite Zimmer score and getting to hear Lisa Gerrard perform live with the orchestra is something pretty special. The credits end with a bit of a whimper so it was nice to see them finish with a rousing rendition of the main theme playing over some making of stills from the film. Another great performance at the Royal Albert Hall. Now a wait until a busy Sept/Oct/Nov. Can't wait to go back.
  11. Great point. The audience was spellbound right to the end. No drowning out the music with premature applause.
  12. This was great! Especially after the intermission and the finale was terrific and orgasmic! There is no other way to describe it. One of the greatest pieces of music ever written!

    The Bear McCreary Thread

    Nearly 2 years on since we heard the main title performed live at E3, the soundtrack album is now available. Plenty of Old Norse in this one with both the deep registered male choir and the beautiful female solo voices taking prominence. Album starts and finishes really strong. Aside from the main title, 'Memories of Mother' and 'Valkyries' are immediate personal favourites.

    Happy Birthday, Michael Kamen!

    Thanks for the reminder, @crocodile! Giving LW1 a spin. Haven't played the LLL set enough recently!
  15. Is Greenaway definitely the conductor for Solo? I see he is listed for it on IMDB but they're sometimes wrong. Powell did afterall conduct his last film 'Ferdinand' himself but I suppose maybe he felt Greenaway's experience would be needed on this? Or maybe he felt he needed to be in the booth with Howard and the producers?
