  1. What's your dream title of a book on JW?

    On Williams and Birches.
  2. Hal Leonard Signature Editions

    Ah, gotcha. I agree, it would have been nice to have a few extras.
  3. Hal Leonard Signature Editions

    I cant comment on that. I have yet to listen to the music as I am holding out until I see the film on Sunday. But I figure anything is usually better than nothing.
  4. Hal Leonard Signature Editions

    “The Rebellion is Reborn” from The Last Jedi is available for pre-order. https://www.halleonard.com/product/viewproduct.action?itemid=4492273&lid=160&keywords=John Williams signature&subsiteid=1&
  5. Circus Train Chase The Lost Boys Chase Scherzo for Motorcycle and Orchestra Anderton’s Great Escape Adventures on Earth The Basket Chase The Mine Car Chase Flight from Peru Introducing The Thompsons/Snowy’s Chase Escape from Venice
  6. I've got six in no particular order: Jim's New Life (Empire of the Sun) Exsultate Justi (Empire of the Sun) Cadillac of the Skies (Empire of the Sun) Flight to Neverland (Hook) Call of the Champions Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas (Home Alone 2)
  7. I hear ya. I love the music that precedes and leads into the chase.
  8. Hmmm, I doubt it. I've seen Circus Train Chase performed multiple times and usually the entire sequence is shown without music, then shown again with the music. This is how it is described in the article. The entire exercise of showing it twice takes about 12 minutes, and every time I've witnessed it the music starts when Young Indy leaps out of the cave and not at he actual film's opening. I can't imagine the audience would be made to sit through the same 12-minute sequence twice. That would eat up 24 minutes of the entire concert.
  9. Best "ringtone" moments

    The first six seconds repeated... Years ago my ringtone was actually this: Which made me think that the opening of this might also be a fun ringtone:
  10. I've been to some concerts where it was referred to in be program as Circus Train Chase and others where it was referred to as Indy's First Adventure. I don't have an answer for why one title might be chosen over another but it has never bothered me either way. 🙂
  11. BBC Proms 2017

    Less of it. Or perhaps simply a different narrator. I wonder if a different narrator might have done better given the material.
  12. BBC Proms 2017

    I thought nearly all of the narration was dull and lackluster, and I thought the Cher/Professor McGonagall joke was even more poorly delivered. The hostess was lacking any sort of energy in my opinion. Very awkward throughout. Catch Me If You Can was a highlight for me though. The saxophonist absolutely nailed the piece, although her excessive and exaggerated body movements were a bit distracting at times. But overall, impressive technique. I absolutely despised the clarinet soloist's interpretation of The Terminal. I thought that she was making too much attempt to add unnecessary flair.
  13. It's a mashup of the JFK theme and the "Flight and Technology" movement from American Journey (skip to 7:19):
