  1. Regrettably there was no announcement They only advertised Home Alone (13/12) and Skyfall (23/04).
  2. I'm enjoying the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra's ROTJ concert this evening. Jabba's Baroque Recital wasn't performed live during the film, but they had two people playing it outside the concert hall beforehand (amongst other pieces arranged in a similar style). I'm hoping they'll announce The Last Jedi dates at the end.
  3. Well, I'm counting myself lucky that the London concert is still going ahead in some form - I'd be feeling much worse if I'd made the trip to Vienna for no reason at all. I suppose a trip to the US in the near(ish) future is my best bet for seeing him conduct.
  4. They'll refund the full price of the ticket (excluding booking fees) for anyone so inclined (I'm still going, of course).
  5. Edit: Beaten to the punch. I wish Mr Williams a quick recovery. Very disappointing to have traveled from the Antipodes and for this to have happened, though it was always a risk given his age. I'm sure the experience with the LSO in the RAH will still make it worth it.
  6. At the risk of dragging this thread back off topic, it's interesting listening to this podcast interview with Yates having read the above. He gushes praise about James Newton Howard's work for Fantastic Beasts and mentions that the studio wanted more Hedwig's Theme and he wanted less.
  7. I'll be curious to hear how different this release will sound compared to the 2016 'Ultimate Digital Collection', the audio of which was 'transferred from the original LP masters using the highest resolution (up to 192kHz/24bit)'.
  8. I don't remember, and the IOC is as strict as ever about protecting its copyright, but here's another (better) performance from the same pair:
  9. The Jyn Erso & Hope Suite from Rogue One also made an appearance in the medley. Sadly their performance wasn't perfect - Yu had a few tumbles. Still nice to hear the music.
  10. Scored a seat in Box 81 in the Second Tier - if my view isn't obscured by anything I should have a pretty good view of the stage based on http://www.mapaplan.com/seating-plan/royal-albert-hall-seat-numbers-chart/high-resolution/royal-albert-hall-seating-plan-01-seat-row-numbers-arena-stalls-circle-loggia-grand-second-tier-boxes-detailed-chart-high-resolution.htm
  11. 879. Not getting my hopes up, but at least I'm in the queue - out of interest I opened a different browser to see what number I'd get, but apparently even the queue is full
  12. Seriously considering my first trip to the UK around this, assuming I can get good tickets when they go on sale to the general public on Friday.
  13. To my ear they did really well - just watching the strings play all those notes was exhausting There are surprisingly long stretches during the Battle of Yavin with no music at all, so they did have some opportunity to rest, at least. The throne room scene is actually a great way to end the film when it comes to a live-to-projection concert - no dialogue and minimal sound effects means basically uninterrupted music for several minutes until the credits finish rolling. After listening to the score combined with the film audio it was nice to hear the Imperial March just by itself with no distractions (everyone sat very quietly!).
