  1. What kind of seats were you sitting in?
  2. Are you sure it was really him? Or was it this guy?
  3. Ok, the Greatest Action Hits CD is just all the JW stuff on one album. I rather like these recordings, though the Raiders/Temple of Doom suite is an odd arrangement but very well performed.
  4. Any JW stuff on these CDs that isn’t on this album?
  5. Two? I have “Greatest Action Hits” where he does music from Star Wars, ET, Superman and Temple Of Doom. What’s the other one?
  6. Works where JW quotes himself

    The Basket Chase in Temple Of Doom.
  7. How big is John Williams in Japan?

    I got Williams’ autograph after a concert in ‘99. I remember there was a woman in front me who had flown in from Japan to see him. She was in tears and she gave him a gift. She had him sign some sheet music or scores or something like that. I don’t know how big he is in Japan but she sure was a passionate fan.
  8. Star Wars - Live To Projection Concerts

    Something about the acoustics. I don't recall exactly, this was probably around 10 years ago or so.
  9. Star Wars - Live To Projection Concerts

    That's what I want, I want to hear the music up close, listen for nuances that might not come through on recordings. When I bring friends and family we sit rear orchestra which has a nice view of the screen. That's why I wanted to go to Star Wars twice, once with my friends and family and a second time by myself in the front row to get the different experiences of the performance. I was at a Q&A once where Marin Alsop was asked the question herself once about what is the optimal seat in the symphony hall and with a laugh said something like "the box office won't like my answer... but probably the last rows of the upper balcony"
  10. Star Wars - Live To Projection Concerts

    Is the view of the screen a priority for you? I've only ever sat in rear orchestra for the movie concerts - so I can't say what's better. However for Star Wars, which I'll be attending twice, I bought my usual rear orchestra seats for one of the performances and very first row for the other. I've never sat up front for a live movie score concert, but for this I don't care about having a good view of the screen I want to sit where (I think) I'll hear the music the loudest. We shall see.
  11. I’m a season subscriber and I paid $175 apiece for my tickets. I noticed recently they are charging $300/ticket. Last time he came here it was billed as a concert to benefit the musicians’ pension fund. http://articles.baltimoresun.com/2013-03-14/entertainment/bal-john-williams-to-conduct-benefit-for-bso-pension-fund-20130314_1_pension-fund-baltimore-symphony-bso
  12. That's part of why I don't mind buying them again. If these sell, I think we inevitably see complete releases later on. I haven't bought a Star Wars OT soundtrack since 1997. My plan is to buy SW and ESB right away, get ROTJ and the prequels later on down the road.
  13. I voted "yes probably" I intend to definitely buy Star Wars and Empire because I do want to hear them sound better than ever (hopefully) and I may get ROTJ and the prequels later on down the road or put them on my birthday or Christmas wishlists. I've always wanted that original ESB OST program on CD. The original CD release always pissed me off.
  14. Star Wars Prequel VS. Sequel scores

    TPM & ROTS > TFA & TLJ > AOTC (I voted Prequel scores)
