    John Williams: Themes and Transcriptions for Piano (Simone Pedroni)

    Another tweet with the same image but different caption "Amazing morning playing for John Williams"

    John Williams: Themes and Transcriptions for Piano (Simone Pedroni)

    The tweet is only a few hours old so quite possibly!

    On the topic of Varese - I saw a glorious picture of JW sat in a rocking chair with the Varese Sarabande tagged (not sure if this is related to another potential release on the horizon). Good to see him back in his usual attire
  4. Just found a few pics of this on the Baltimore Orioles Facebook page! Looking fit and healthy which is always promising
  5. A few pictures of John in attendance of a Baltimore Orioles game! I believe there was a small concert before the game (think they played Superman March and a few others) and he was even throwing and catching the ball before the match started. Looking generally fit and healthy! Apologies for my lack of Baseball knowledge! Just realised there was already a thread on this - sorry!
  6. I don't think JW will record with the LSO again, but I'm not too fussed about it. Like others have mentioned, TFA and BGF both sounded exquisite in terms of the recording. Total clarity but no loss of power in the low end. I saw the LSO perform some of TFA during a concert in London a week ago and it was stunning but I didn't think that they could have done a better job of recording it. Most can't describe what the LSO has over the players in LA and I think that is because it doesn't exist, it's just the fact it's the LSO...

    Your JW elevator pitch piece

    For pure epicness... For the chills... I'd have to hope the elevator is going up the Burj Khalifa or something

    Has The BFG grown on you?

    The thing with BFG is that I kind of forget it exists unless it comes up whilst my playlist on Spotify is on shuffle mode. Due to the fact I haven't listened that much means I get pleasantly surprised whenever it comes on. Like others have said, some nice moments but nothing really stands out to me. That could also be due to the fact I haven't seen the film though so I don't have much connection with the music... Needs a few more listens really!
  9. Yeah the featurette was underwhelming to say the least but it's still a nice piece. Better than nothing I suppose -_- I guess it's enough for most people who would be buying the Blu-Ray.
  10. I think Rey's theme has a really adventurous and almost enchanting feel about it. I was hooked from the very first listen from the soundtrack which I listened to before seeing the film. Now I've seen the film (5 times) I still love the theme and can't wait to see where Williams takes it in the next one!?

    Hello from Manchester, UK

    Hi Everyone! I just joined the forums today so thought I'd introduce myself! My name is Max McGuire and I'm a 21 year old composer/producer based in Manchester, UK. I compose a lot of music with @The Psycho Pianist who also introduced me to this site. I'm of course a big fan of JW and have been enjoying his music for years. Growing up watching Star Wars I will always feel nostalgic when I hear Han and Leia's Theme :') I come from a background of being classically trained on the piano from a young age (I did also play the violin for a few years), in my teens I also took up playing the drums and was in various bands and I went to Leeds College of Music where I studied Music Production. It was there where I discovered and developed a love for film music, and orchestral music in general! From there I started writing a lot of string music and eventually moved on to full arrangements. On occasion I will be score reading JW with @The Psycho Pianist to try and learn anything we can, or hear something to take inspiration from. I have much to learn and hopefully some of that can be done here!
