    Kickstarter for Trumpet Concerto, with Williams conducting

    Can’t believe a Kickstarter project can lead us to a new recording by an amazing trumpeter and the Maestro himself. I will buy the CD! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Maybe there will be a time for more kickstarter projects like this... it seems like Maestro Williams has been pretty enthusiastic about the whole project from the get-go.😆 👻

    The Official Soundings Thread

    I hope Williams would find a good hall and record Soundings with himself conducting. I only have the youtube 720p audio extract of Soundings (Dudamel conducting). But I want JW's version, maybe he'll even change a few bars or make some subtle changes to suit the acoustics of the studio/hall. 🤤 It's perfect JW. I don't get why some people would just step on JW when JW's music is just better than like 99% of 🎼 on the planet. 👻

    Which are John Williams's best concert pieces (non film music)?

    He wrote that during his "comedy period"? 🤯 JW is amazing😭 I have the LSO recording of Essay for Strings... great performance! I personally like to listen to Essay for Strings and Heartwood back to back because they are great examples... showing the variety of JW's strings writing. In fact, I would argue that they are (sort of) of the opposite end? In Essay, dissonance is used to create tension while in Heartwood, it's the reverse I think. 👻

    Which are John Williams's best concert pieces (non film music)?

    Wow, I gave it a few more listens and it really is based on the interval of a major second! It's so fascinating that JW could discover so much from so little😭🤩 the use of dissonance here somehow reminds me of TPM... and the strings writing... Anakin Defeats Sebulba? If it's wrtten in 1999 = awesome becuase 1999 Williams = awesome, it's like it's a fact🤩🤩

    Which are John Williams's best concert pieces (non film music)?

    For me, the thing that stands out in Tributes! For Seiji is the brass writing. More reserved than his big fanfares ✅and just about right👏. It is more celebratory than Soundings (with the focus on the different combinations of orchestral "sound effects"?) I think. 🤗Very interesting piece!!! 👻 😂it's also on YouTube... 👏 Seems like it's also taken from a broadcast🙂 👻

    Star Wars: Episode IX (JJ Abrams 2019)

    The Classical Music Recommendation Thread

    Do we have a John Williams Concert Works recommendation thread here at jwfan? I feel like there’s a need for a that... esp for new/younger jwfans who might not be familiar with JW’s more classical side. “Whenever I fanboy it's like I go into a trance and I block off everything around me.” Okay I just want a dedicated thread for fanboying helping the world to better appreciate the architectural beauty of John Williams’s concert works and fanboying promote his unique musical voice to all nations fanboying ! thanks👻

    Oh yeah Heartbreaker... 🍻 a friend got me the deluxe ver because I literally was going through a heartbreak. Then I sank into the ocean of DRA. (You can see how much I love Night Birds🍻) Heartbreaker+29= I died. Do You Still Love Me? Personal fav from Prisoner (more like fav post-2005 DRA song) What about Orion? 😉 I actually like Imminent Galactic War, because: 👻
