    Highwood's Ghost to be released on Blu-ray

    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.
  2. 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
  3. 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!
  4. 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.
  5. LSO is busy during Saturday afternoon: https://lso.co.uk/whats-on/icalrepeat.detail/2018/10/27/1265/-/family-concert.html

    John Williams has a pacemaker!

    There's many well known conductors who have continued their career after having a pacemaker. Haven't you heard about Riccardo Muti for example?
  8. 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.

    The OSCAR Thread

    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.

    'War of the Worlds' - 2 disc promo?

    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.

    'War of the Worlds' - 2 disc promo?

    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
  13. 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!
  14. 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.

    Indiana Jones IV to be recorded in Los Angeles

    So will he orchestrate the score? God! I can't wait to hear another watery orchestrated score. Great.... Conrad Pope as an orchestrator should not be any surprise. He has been working with Williams since Jurassic Park (many times uncredited). He probably is not the only orchestrator working on this project. You should remember that Williams really orchestrates almost everything by himself. I am very curious what scores do you seem orchestrated so "watery".
