  1. Those of you in the USA who have been holding out on experiencing Titanic-Live in a more traditional venue should check this out: February 8 and 9, 2020 Place des Artes, Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier https://placedesarts.com/en/event/titanic Yeah, it's Canada, but it's close.

  3. I’m thinking that the reason Mike M. is so sure that this concert will not be presented this year is because this concert-program is still in-production—it’s not ready to be performed, yet. Perhaps, the producers of the concert, Film Concerts Live, are awaiting John Williams involvement on it since he's busy with SW:TROS. The producers made this announcement, now, because… they know that at this time, all the concert-halls from around the world would have filled-up their dates with shows for the remainder of this year. FCL can, now, start making bookings (aka, collecting money) for this concert for 2020. I wouldn’t be surprised if we’ll see this concert turn-up as early as Spring 2020. I’ve seen concert-halls announced a new show while a concert season is in progress. This practice is similar to Amazon.com accepting preorders on a book or DVD months before the merchandise hits the warehouse.
  4. Not to mention, portions of "The Last Battle" from the concert arrangement of SW (ANH). I guess George Lucas' thinking is this: "I've brought back the Death Star from SW(ANH), might as well bring back some of the music from that movie, too.
  5. Mike Matessino seems very sure that this concert will not get booked this year. https://filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=124036&forumID=1&archive=0&pageID=11&r=835#bottom I figured that during the remaining weeks of December, the music venues would be putting on Xmas shows.
  6. I know music venues offer 'open rehearsals' concerts, but I rarely see ones for the LTP concerts. I would think that the theatre would play the film, but not in its entirety. Only the scenes where there's music and the orchestra would play it. This way, the audience would not be emotionally invested in the pieces of the film, instead of a whole, and they would applause after each music cue is over. I rarely see open rehearsals for LTP programs, however, I did catch this one from the MSO: https://www.mso.com.au/whats-on/2019/unpacking-the-score-mso-at-the-movies/ Maybe @crumbs can set me straight on what goes on at the MSO's "Unpacking The Score" series. For what it's worth, I've been to 2 CE3K concerts in different USA cities this year (we, Americans, can be a loud bunch at these concerts) and during the film's end credits, the audience were on their best behavior--they were quiet (except for the one guy that coughed alot in one city). In fact, there were no applause when JW's name came up.
  7. If this concert presents the theatrical cut, which would be a safe bet because of the length, it would have to be some of the music unheard in the final cut. The TC is a trimmed down version of the cut that Williams used to write his score. Having said that, I would like to hear music that was unscored in the TC during such sequences like the destruction of Krypton, and the ‘super-feasts’ in the film’s latter half. Perhaps if Mike Matessino is involved in this concert, as he has in both JAWS and CE3K, this may happen.
  8. ,For the record, I've been logging in to FCL's website every day, twice a week, since January hoping that something like this would come.

  10. This question is for the members who attended the ANH and ROTJ concerts in countries where English isn’t the primary language. I know that the audio that is coming out of the speakers in some of these concerts will be the English-language track with subtitles of the country's primary language being displayed. In one ANH in German @Caliburn reports in this review... My question is this: for the scenes where subtitles translate the talking of Greedo and Jabba, does one of the following happened: Two sets of subtitles are displayed--The English-translated subtitles and the subtitles of the country’s primary language where the latter is positioned at the bottom of the screen. One set of subtitles are displayed—the country’s primary language. Maybe @toothless can answer...
  11. Well, if the MSO played Episode 7 in 2017 before playing Episodes 4 and 5 (in that order) in 2018, then I don’t think the MSO is concerned with continuity. So, Episode 9, may show up before December’s presentation of Episode 6. If it gets there after December, then it is what it is.
  12. I’m going on the idea that some of these orchestras on the planet that have already played The Force Awakens, or will play it before December, may book The Last Jedi between now and December to cash-in on the anticipation for The Rise of Skywalker, as the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra did. I have seen orchestras add more LTP concerts long after their schedule for the upcoming season has officially announced and while a season is in progress. Orchestras That Already Played TFA New York Philharmonic Orchestra. October 6th and 7th, 2017 I can’t picture the New York Philharmonic adding-on any more LTP concerts, they have 5 now for this season (CE3K, Psycho, Harry Potter, Singin’ In the Rain, and Mary Poppins). Last season it was 4 (There Will Be Blood, Home Alone, Red Violin, Bugs Bunny at the Symphony) National Symphony Orchestra at The Kennedy Center, Washington, DC. February 21, 22, and 23, 2019 During the 2018/19 Season, they played all 4 Star Wars concerts in Disney's series, plus Get Out. That’s 5 LTP concerts. I have seen this orchestra book an LTP concert while a season is in progress. During the 2017-18 Season, the NSO announced the world premiere of Jurassic World on April 3, 2018 for a May 30th 2018 performance. This season, the NSO has only 2 LTP concerts (Up, and a Harry Potter), so, they may fit in TLJ as a North American Premiere. Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. December 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th 2017. I don’t know the international orchestra scene, but if the Tokyo Philharmonic can book TLJ after a season schedule is released to the public, then the MSO may do it, too. The Sydney Symphony Orchestra will play TFA this September 12th through 14th, so, maybe you'll find TLJ being booked, soon.
  13. World Premiere for Star Wars-The Last Jedi: Film Live With Orchestra will be in Tokyo, Japan on October 14, 2019 Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Nicholas Buc http://www.promax.co.jp/info/2019/101301/
  14. Mike Matessino, in his podcasts, has recommended not to trash the bounded book of the out-of-print FSM Superman-The Music Blue Box CD-set because certain information from it has not been carried-over to the liner notes on the La-La Land CD booklet. That is a shame, since the La-La Land CD has the most cues of the score, to date, than the FSM version. For Superman-The Movie, here are some data from the FSM book that is not on the La-La Land CD booklet: The mention of Lionel Newman being present at the Superman scoring sessions to help “John get into the groove.” In the La-La Land booklet, Herbert Spencer is mentioned as the “orchestrator” and the name of contributing orchestrator, Angela Morley, is listed in the “Special Thanks” page, but the name of another contributing orchestrator, Arthur Morton, is nowhere on the booklet. In the FSM book, all three names, plus Williams’ name, are listed with “orchestrations by.” Those are the items I caught, so far. I don’t own the La-La Land CD releases of Superman I-IV, so, I’m leaving that up to you all. Oh, BTW:
