  1. Anne-Sophie Mutter's website now mentions John Williams conducting the 2nd half of the concert. Also BSO website has been updated to include JW as a conductor.
  2. Will definitely be buying the Blu-ray of this. Just couple of weeks ago it was also broadcasted on Finnish TV. Williams isn't just conducting his piece but is also one of the interviewees and included on some of the sort clips between the performances. For Finnish members (or with VPN) this is still available online at YLE Areena.
  3. New tickets (standing gallery tickets and seats in the choir) will soon be available according to email ad for Royal Albert Hall Friends & Patrons: Friends & Patrons Priority Booking: 10am, Wednesday 5 September - 9am, Thursday 6 September Public booking: 10am, Thursday 6 September
  4. Have to admit I was a little bit upset after spending for another friend status. After thinking about it, I'm more than happy to support them. During the years I've enjoyed many amazing recordings of this wonderful orchestra. It was for a good cause!
  5. I was planning to travel to Boston this year and even joined Boston Pops Friends ($100 donation) to have access to advance tickets. Thanks to this topic I was quickly notified about the London concerts and made arrangements (travelling with my sister) to attend London concert instead. I wasn't that happy about the extra £45 but based on later replies it seems without it I wouldn't have gotten my tickets (arena seats on 11th row). Advance tickets were also available for Azkaban in Concert so I'm not that angry about the extra fee anymore.
  6. LSO is busy during Saturday afternoon: https://lso.co.uk/whats-on/icalrepeat.detail/2018/10/27/1265/-/family-concert.html
  7. "Due to vast number of requests we receive each year, we do not have waiting lists for any events at the Hall" https://www.royalalberthall.com/your-visit/faqs/
  8. There's many well known conductors who have continued their career after having a pacemaker. Haven't you heard about Riccardo Muti for example?
  9. Based on links posted here these are just limited Blu-spec CD releases meant for Japanese market by Sony Japan. I would be more interested about potential new worldwide releases by Sony Classical.
  10. At least for Finland Spotify has now the full album available: http://open.spotify.com/album/3Q08y3UGU6lqRpksL66EHO
  11. It was a great inside joke! One of the first works by Giacchino was the music for The Lost World: Jurassic Park computer game. Game was produced by Dreamworks and he's career started when Steven Spielberg invited him to compose music for the game.
  12. Most of these bootlegs use silver color CD-Rs and are not really pressed. This release has sound effects included so it doesn't sound like a legit album release. I don't think it is fair to sell these fan made dvd-rips for fifteen pounds (30$)!. This seller has five of them and also many other releases. If you really need to get it, buy the dvd and make a rip to our own use.
  13. I can confirm that this is a bootleg. It is ripped from the DVD, some of the tracks has sound effects. It also has some source cues and tracks from the album. Same seller is also selling 4 CD version of Young Sherlock Holmes
  14. Like I said earlier in this same thread, John Williams got a Gold Record Award from the Philosopher's Stone and it sold at least over 500 000 copies!
  15. When Paramount released DVD-versions of the movies they also remastered soundtracks (THX Certified). I presume they also mastered the score-only tracks from the old master tapes. It would not be so hard to use this remastered material for the new CD releases. DCC released in 1995 an expanded version of the Raiders of the Lost Ark and it sold out quite fast. If this was commercially profitable it should be profitable to re-release them all.
