  1. And add Superman to the "FULL SCORES PERFORMED LIVE TO PICTURE" box. FCL actually got around to adding all two venues in their Superman page.
  2. Hi @Stefancos I realize that you’ve created this thread before the Star Wars LTP concerts began in 2017. And now that it has, what about adding the version of the said cue from the SW:ANH LTP concerts to the poll. It's basically everything from the ‘shorter, original version’, with a repeat of a portion of it, but the ending is from the concert version—that ‘the throne room’ melody followed by that ‘force’ melody? Hear that ending at the 5:52 mark
  3. With our luck, Superman may be in that Fall 2020 schedule.
  4. That is a great statement. I'm glad I thought of it, @Disco Stu
  5. Let's hope that the RAH ignores the audience scores from Rotten Tomatoes.
  6. I messed up on a posting. This quote from the RAH website on Superman... Should have been here, but I accidently posted in the STAR WARS LTP thread. Basically, the RAH is showing the 1978 theatrical cut, not the director's 2000 extended cut. And no chorus ensemble is mentioned.
  7. Hay @MrScratch and other ticket holders for the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's Star Wars Concert Series, the orchestra gave a statement on the new scheduling for Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi LTPs: https://www.bsomusic.org/sw Here's hoping that the orchestra doesn't go on strike, again, during the season.
  8. It returns to the RAH on October 28, 2020 https://www.royalalberthall.com/tickets/events/2020/the-matrix-live/ Sadly, with all the mass shootings that have happened in the USA, I can't see any music venue, there, would want to book this, even if this year marks the film's 20th anniversary.
  9. And you guys, in England, didn't have to wait 3 months after the last Star Wars concert to find this out... SW:ROTJ at the RAH, October 23 through 25, 2020 https://www.royalalberthall.com/tickets/events/2020/star-wars-return-of-the-jedi-in-concert/ ...and it's the London Symphony Orchestra. Priority Booking for Royal Albert Hall Friends & Patrons opens at 10am on October 2nd, 2019 Tickets go on general sale at 10am, Friday, October 4th, 2019
  10. Gosh darn, you blokes! Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at the RAH, October 27th, 2020 https://www.royalalberthall.com/tickets/events/2020/superman-in-concert/ Priority Booking for Royal Albert Hall Friends & Patrons opens at 10am on October 2nd, 2019 Tickets go on general sale at 10am on Friday, October 4, 2019
  11. Having been to three ESB-LTP concerts-each with a different orchestra within the East Coast, there's one thing that I've noticed that each orchestra does consistently that is different than the original scoring session performance. During the opening of the music cue--3M3: The Snow Battle, there's a tempo change-- the tempo speeds-up and we hear cymbal clashes taking-over the rhythm section--2 clashes per measure--against brass and woodwinds. For reference, look for the tempo change in this video at the 1:00 mark. During that tempo change at the concerts, I've noticed the brass section and the cymbal player of each of the orchestras performing that cue were not in sync with each other, at first--either the cymbal clashes were faster in tempo than the brass section or the other way around. You never hear that in the scoring-session recording. I'm wondering if you guys who attended the ESB-LTP concerts at the RAH or any where else, noticed that?
  12. In that KKL Luzern program, there's no name of a choir ensemble. Does that mean that the concert version of the cues, Leaving Home, The Fortress of Solitude, and Luthor's Lethal Weapon will... Have a pre-recorded female choir No choir
  13. If you, guys, get ROTJ at the RAH, then, @Marian Schedenig, you may not like how the music is presented in the Jabba Sail Barge Escape sequence. The score pages on that concert-version feature the same disorganized edits from the film-version. What is funny about it is that those edits existed in the '83 theatrical cut However, there's a plus side. You would be treated to a live performance of the Ewok-tribal music featuring maracas, xylophone, and bass drum--no pre-recording from the film-sound mix.
  14. Yes, A portion of the 'Sanskrit Sacrifice' ritual-music was recorded at Symphony Hall, Boston, MA in May of 1983. It was reported by The Boston Globe.
  15. Both the violin and flute concertos were both 'originally recorded' by the London Symphony Orchestra in 1981 and was originally released by Varese Sarabande on LP/Vinyl in 1983 and, later, on CD. However, the violin concerto was premiered by the SLO in January of 1981 https://www.leonardslatkin.com/world-premieres/
