  1. Yes - but at 320 kB/s the orchestra is still mixed the way it is. It just sounds a little strange to me at times. Somebody said it earlier: some instruments sound like really far away and then snare and harp is very close, with a reverb that to me doesn’t sound very realistic to me. Still fantastic playing though!
  2. I listened to it on Spotify - I’d assume there is not too much of a difference with the CD. What I dislike is a kind of artificiality to the orchestral sound that doesn’t reflect the way an orchestra sounds when you would hear it in any live setting.
  3. Absolutely great performances, but I find the recording/mixing really quite awful. And there are some horrendous edits that I don’t associate with the supposed quality of Deutsche Grammophone. It seems like the production for this album was quite rushed...
  4. ? While it is true that he gave JW this temped version of the movie instead of going through a ‘traditional’ spotting session, RJ has talked about the fact they met and watched the movie together etc.
  5. ‘Live’ still means the performances can be edited like crazy. When recording multiple concerts + rehearsals etc... and coughing noises will be edited out in most cases.
  6. And working 10 hours a day! Nowadays, he likes to compose max. 6 a day (I think he said such in an interview). So he’d need a little more time for these films, but he still writes extremely fast.
  7. Good to hear. Little strange about the schedule though - I'd assume he'd be starting around march as soon as they assemble a rough cut, like he did with TLJ. Wouldn't that be much more comfortable for him? He has stated he doesn't like to compose 10 hours a day anymore.
  8. True, although he did sort of commit himself to the sequel trilogy in 2013. We’ll never see anything like that anymore I guess.
  9. ’Resume touring schedule’?! They don’t know what they’re talking about. I can’t take this seriously. The most logical thing is that JW, after Ep IX, will just sign on with whatever he feels like doing and is comfortable to work with, without committing himself to long-term projects.
  10. Excuse me for bumping this thread, but I wonder if there’s any news about JW’s well-being after his trip home? Do we maybe have an event coming up where he’s scheduled to appear? His health is something that often crosses my mind, and I’m always happy to see any recent picture where he’s looking good. 🙂
  11. My god, this is gorgeous. Glad I managed to tune in for the second half. Hope they’ll do a recording of Han Solo and the Princess some time.

    STAR WARS - Live To Projection Concerts

    Very fine performance indeed. The dialogue was unbearably loud though, it was very hard to hear the music well at times. Anyway, I hope they’ll do Empire next time!
