  1. I just found the original thread for this same topic, in which most of you already posted last November.... http://www.jwfan.com/forums/index.php?/topic/27879-jw-new-piece-for-yo-yo/
  2. Just in case anyone forgot, the new concert work was announced last November and mentioned here. The piece will be performed again at the Bernstein Centennial Celebration on August 25, with Williams conducting:
  3. Alex Ross on Williams' The Last Jedi

    Yes, it's been mentioned here and here. But it probably deserved its own thread, so thanks for posting it.
  4. Hey, they're great songs!
  5. The Official username change thread

  8. THE POST - SCORE Thread

    Mikkos review of the OST is now available on the main page: http://www.jwfan.com/?p=10413
  9. It's the press release for the album, which is also available on the main page.
  10. I don't see a contradiction there but I respect that you do, since this idea seems to be the foundation for your collecting and appreciation of film scores.
  11. Sure you can, because they're two different things. One refers to the preference for a more or less complete/chronological sequencing (subjective). The other refers to the idea that if someone prefers a shortened version of a score over its C&C presentation, they don't appreciate it as much as a whole. It's simple.
  12. It seems apparent to me that you don't want to accept that all this is happening on a subjective level, hence there may be people who prefer the C&C presentation over their OST counterpart. A film score is not just its main title, or a suite of themes, or its soundtrack album, or an expanded release. One may say "I love the Schindler's List score" but only listen and enjoy its main theme or a selection of cues. Well to me that's not appreciating the score in its entirety as a listening experience, that's all I'm saying. And as I said before there's nothing wrong with it, it's just a matter of preference and appreciation. BTW feel free to use words like "pedantic" or "fallacy" to try to discredit my opinion, but don't expect me to take yours seriously if you choose to do so.
