  1. Thanks. This is the most insightful and deep interview with Williams I've read in years.
  2. The arrangement is the same, the differences are very subtle. Besides, Mutter's style of playing is slightly different than Perlman's. When I listen to this CD, I can easily imagine how much fun Williams had when he was creating these arrangements. He didn't want to beat the originals, this isn't what this album is about. It's about great art, friendship and time spent together. It's about enjoying music that is able to cross all boundaries.
  3. I've had this beautiful gem for a few days and I can say that the album is, as expected, phenomenal. I’ll write more in a large article that I’m going to publish before the premiere. Several pieces, like Hedwig’s Theme, Donnybrook Fair and The Duel are very vibrant and virtuoso. Hedwig’s Theme in the extended version is a revelation. Dracula sounds phenomenal and dark. Luke and Leia is beautiful, just like Across The Stars. Sabrina is quite similar to the version that appeared on Cinema Serenade, Schindler's List doesn't differ much from the original either. I am looking forward to the deluxe version, but even this one is definitely one of the record events of the year. I'm telling you, this ends with at least one Grammy Award Below are some photos.The booklet has 24 pages. Liner notes are in English and German. There is also short essay by Jon Burlingame, but I don't want to spoil everything here What can I say more... Well, it's 'Nice to be around' this CD
  4. Saying like Master Yoda, "What a wonderful concert it must have been" And they recorded it! I counted shots from at least six cameras. I think there is a good chance that they'll release a blu ray
  5. Of course it would. If somebody was at a concert and recorded something on the phone himself, then he shared it on youtube, everyone can put links on forums or social medias. There is nothing illegal about it.
  6. I'm slowly starting to lose hope for Williams' concert on blu-ray. The one from a few years ago, conducted by Dudamel, was really fantastic, but I would love to see Maestro in action on the podium longer than just during The Imperial March encore or during the performance of Highwood Ghost at last year's concert for Bernstein.
  7. Exactly. So, the million dollar question: Did any of the lucky ones who were at this concert accidentally notice any cameras that recorded the whole event? I know it's unlikely, but it would be very nice.
  8. I’m sure that Theme from “Jurassic Park”, Harry’s Wondrous World from “Harry Potter”, The Devil’s Dance from “Witches of Eastwick”, Superman March and The Flying Theme from “E.T.” will be performed as regular arrangements we’ve known and love for years. Also Just Down West Street... Anne Sophie will need breaks between the performances, this is normal. We''ll definitely hear Princess Leia’s Theme, which will not be on the album. That's good news. I still hope that the concert in Tanglewood will be recorded in HD, like many others that took place there.
  9. They recorded a lot more, including Markings. Maybe there will be two editions, a special limited 2CD?
  10. Ok, apparently I can't keep up with this sense of humor, but still ... Williams to Conduct New Violin and Orchestra Arrangements at Tanglewood http://www.jwfan.com/?p=12367
  11. I really hope that since it's Tanglewood, where concerts are often recorded also with cameras, we will have a blu-ray release. Especially since it will be such a unique event!
  12. Of course I know he did. I have all his Bond scores in my CD collection. The Danish composer Bent Fabricius-Bjerre wrote music for about 20 Olsen Gang movies, if not more. But three trilogies written in over 40 years... I guess nothing can compare with that.
  13. Three trilogies of great music... Has any composer ever achieved anything similar?
  14. Interview with Williams took place a month ago, so now it's about 50 minutes. We can assume that in a month he will have 70-80 minutes of music written. As the sessions will probably take all summer, and the music in a Star Wars movie lasts about 120 minutes, Williams certainly has everything planned and under control.
