    Estimate the total length of John Williams' music

    Of course, there are many other factors to take into account that make it difficult to compare these numbers. For example, Williams has orchestrators to help him write for full orchestra in a short amount of time - even if his sketches do contain nearly everything that ends up in the final score, they still take time off his hands. Bach, Mozart & Co had to do everything themselves (unless perhaps they sometimes had help from their students). On the other hand, the output of the top composers in the list linked above consists of many different types of compositions, including a lot of solo and chamber music and in many cases a significant share a-cappella choir works, whereas the major share of Williams's works is for full orchestra.
  2. It's in subway stations, too. Doug Adams posted this: The colouring around the door shows that it's a U4 station.

    Estimate the total length of John Williams' music

    To be fair, the modern collections of complete works by some of the great past composers include pieces that were never published during their lifetime. And definitely lots of works that were published, but not performed until after their death, so "released in film or on CD" is objectively too strict.

    Estimate the total length of John Williams' music

    I just happen to have counted my Williams collection - 189 individual CDs, counting double CDs as two discs and multiple releases individually (e.g. I have 5 discs for E.T.). Using 1 CD = 1 hour as a rough estimate, that would be about 190 hours, though quite a bit of that consists of duplicates. On the other hand, not everything has been released, and I don't have all of his non-film stuff (and a handful of minor gaps in his film output). So I'd say a minimum of something between 150 and 200 hours of released music is not an unreasonable guess.
  5. ET, definitely, because a lot of it is of course a totally different recording. And there are instances where I prefer the OST (The Fury, Damien, Capricorn One are perfect examples). But if it's just the same tracks a second time, I don't see the point. If you've got enough space left, put them on, but adding an extra disc, even if they don't increase the price, just seems like a waste of material. Of course, there might be contractual requirements, but that's a different story. One release that *should* have included the album is JP, but I have the previous editions as well, so I'm not personally bothered by it. And I can accept that, even if I only sometimes agree with it. But considering how few people still play CDs on an actual CD player, I don't see the need to duplicate exact tracks if you can already create them as a playlist from the full score.
  6. Oh certainly, but individual tracks like these are perfect as alternates at the end of the programme. No need to replicate the entire album for that.

    What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Older Films)

    They were invented by Williams anyway.
  8. A half day (or a bit longer, depending on your time management) trip to Oxford is enough to visit the fantastic Tolkien exhibition, walk past Tolkien's house, visit his grave and have a pint at The Eagle and Child.
  9. Is there any difference between the individual OST and score *tracks* though? And if so, is it significant? I don't remember any editing at least, though it's been years since I listened to the OST. But if it's just a matter of creating a playlist, I don'T see the need for an extra disc.

    What Is The Last Score You Listened To?

    Don't.... tempt me, Karol! Wonderful score. Perhaps not classic Herrmann, but classical Herrmann.
  11. It's a small wooded square on the stright right across the corner from my flat, on the way to my regular supermarket. If it's there, it'll be up in other places across the city as well. And it's below a poster advertising Messiah with Ortner conducting the Schönbergchoir and soloists including Schade, so it's in good company.
  12. Standard Musikverein posters are finally up in Vienna:
  13. But your laptop is a single, relatively inexpensive device that can easily be replaced. A full studio setup that's bleeding edge when new will probably be used for quite some time before it is replaced, at which point it might not be quite state of the art anymore.
  14. It's the score that redeemed Shawn Murphy as a Williams engineer.

    If Whittaker's preaching is anything like Capaldi's, bring it on!
