  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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!
  10. 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.
  11. Three trilogies of great music... Has any composer ever achieved anything similar?
  12. 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.
  13. I've been thinking... According to the interview, it took place just after the Hedwig's Theme recording session with Anne-Sophie Mutter's, and that was about a month ago. So, we can safely assume that Williams has already written about 50 minutes of music to TROS!
  14. Information - yes (although press agencies, which usually provide information, don't work for free), but this is not information or news, it's a press interview that appears in a newspaper that's not an online service or web portal – The Sunday Times draws a large part of its profits from sales. Therefore, it is perfectly understandable that most of their exclusive content is available online for additional payment. Why would it be different? If we want the press to survive, let's keep paying the journalists and publishers for the content they prepare for us. By the way, it's great that Williams has already started writing music for TROS! TFA and TLJ are fantastic and I have no doubt that the last episode will also be at the highest level.
  15. A beautiful, brilliant and virtuoso arrangement by the Maestro, and the Sophie Mutter performance is unbelievably masterful. This will win many awards, also in the classical music world.
  16. This is a masterpiece There is so much going on in this, it’s so vibrant and full of ideas. I would pay the price of a double CD only for these 5 minutes. Do you think there is a chance for a CD? And do we have a confirmation that Williams composed something more for Galaxy's Edge?
  17. I saw the movie today at the press screening in Poland. The music is really great and powerful. A large part of it is maintained in the bombastic and heroic atmosphere, just like in Infinity War. There is a lot of action score of course, but there are also many lyrical and emotional moments that may even recall the nostalgic fragments of Forrest Gump and Contact. In general, score is more diverse than Infinity War - Silvestri even allowed himself to flirt with swing. I'm counting on the CD. And I liked the movie very much.
  18. The record company sent me the album yesterday so I had the opportunity to listen to it. I can't agree that the recording/mixing is really quite awful - in my opinion the whole set sounds very good. Of course, I have in mind that it's a recording from the concert, not from the studio. Did you listen to it from the CD?
  19. New album Nocturne in January. Listen to this. Beautiful.
  20. I've been looking here regularly since 2000 and I remember that at the beginning I even logged in to write something that, along with other posts, was to be printed and handed over to John Williams. Various personal appreciation from fans, thanks for the music etc. Btw, was it delivered? Then I stopped using the account, and as a result of some changes in JWFan it has been deleted. Since last year I have a new account
  21. You can fin the whole concert here https://youtu.be/lT9g9-5Gioc It sounds very beautiful, both Markings and Across the Stars. Like the new arrangement of the Han Solo and the Princess theme, where the relationship between them is more from the The Force Awakens times than The Empire Strikes Back, the new version of Across the Stars sounds more like a comment to the tragic end of Anakin and Padme love from Revenge of the Sith than the relatively innocent relationship of Attack of The Clones. As this concert was quite a big and prestigious event and was recorded in HD, I suppose it may soon be released on blu ray. It would be great! By the way, I love this view
  22. Instant purchase also for me! You can find a back cover with all the details and technical aspects of this blu ray at the link below https://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Bernstein-at-100-The-Centennial-Celebration-at-Tanglewood-Blu-ray/217926/
  23. From what they wrote in the email, the ticket needs to be printed. Please print the attachment and bring it with you to the event. Each ticket will be scanned on entry.
