    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!

    How was it? Looking forward to hear it tomorrow.
  3. All of these people mentioned in the interview should be carried over to Ep. IX!

    Williams donates all his scores to Juilliard

    I hope this access to the scores will finally debunk the idea that ‘Williams doesn’t really write his music all by himself’ which I still often hear in the academic music world.
  5. I’m quite intrigued by your dogmatic way of defining why you like things or not. To me, it’s very contradicting at times. Anyways: TFA 1. The Scavenger 2. Farewell and the Trip 3. The Resistance 4. Follow me and the Falcon (if properly edited!) 5. I Can Fly Anything TLJ 1. The Battle of Crait 2. The Fathiers 3. The Supremacy 4. The Last Jedi 5. The Rebellion is Reborn Though choices I must say!
  6. The LSO sounds a lot better now than they did in 1977. Actually their playing on the first Star Wars is quite sloppy a lot of times, but it certainly has its charm.
  7. Amazing news. But I’m so sad right now, because there is no way I could get to London that day. Hope it’ll be broadcast, and who knows a miracle will happen and he’ll return the next year too
  8. Don’t expect anything from IX as no one knows how the movie will be. VIII saw many returning themes because that’s what the movie asked for. Maybe IX will be like that, maybe not.
  9. I think this could be a step-up for a nomination and win for Ep IX. An oscar for the final installment of the franchise would be so fitting, but it’d be kind of weird when VIII wouldn’t be nominated at all. So there’s hope!
  10. Oh come on. Is it symphonic music of a higher quality than *anything* else out there? Yes! Doesn’t matter where you rank it within the SW scores. This deserves a nomination most certainly, but I didn’t expect it. Congratulations Maestro!

    Williams confirms EPISODE IX !!

    I understand and I hear it too, but I wonder if that's merely a question of talent or lack of knowledge/education? Edit: TGP beat me to it, I see.

    Not so sure about that. I'd say that JW's entire film career is a reflection of his immense knowledge (and obvious talent). And yeah, those tests I referred to were hyperbolic, but what do you mean with shortcomings on a higher level? Just out of curiosity, as I'm also not a fan.

    I'm a pianist myself and I also learn stuff at times that is not so relevant to what I do in the end. But as an artist one should always know there is merit in a broad musical education, regardless in what field you're operating. Giacchino writes for orchestra and blockbusters, but sometimes I wonder if he'd pass basic harmony and counterpoint tests at a conservatory. Well yes, of course I'm exaggerating here, and these are not the things that matter most when your job is scoring movies adequately, which he does well. But hearing John Williams' music really is something else.

    That I know very well, but it's more Hollywood's top composers that concern me.
