    TownerFan got a reaction from The Five Tones in The Legacy of John Williams - New Blog on JW   
    New episode of The Legacy Conversations podcast: music theorist Frank Lehman (aka @Falstaft) shares his wonderful academic knowledge about the music of John Williams, illustrating methodology and approach with his usual great observations. He's definitely one of the best examples of how Williams's music ended up influencing not only musicians, but also scholars, academics and historians.

    TownerFan got a reaction from Remco in The Last Jedi: Guess The Temptrack.   
    Williams had to follow a temp track for Star Wars... well, since the very beginning in 1977. He's very accustomed to deal with such thing, and he has been very successful, in my opinion, to let the temp track be just a starting point, a jumping board from which he could dive into his musical creativity and speak with his own voice.
     
    The Sequel Trilogy is a beast of its own in terms of methodology and scoring process. It's definitely different than the way he used to work with George Lucas and he had to adapt to a very different kind of process (and also surrounded with a much larger pressure from the various stakeholders). But it's a fact he has successfully navigated through all this.

    TownerFan got a reaction from Modest Expectations in John Williams to conduct the Vienna Philharmonic - January 18/19 2020   
    In Boston in 2017, he actually did that when performing the March from 1941.
     
    I also attended a couple other concerts featuring JW's music (conducted by others) where the audience started spontaneously to clap in rhythm with the inevitable Imperial March encore.

    TownerFan reacted to apples in John Williams to conduct the Vienna Philharmonic - January 18/19 2020   
    So this just happened... Got an email from Musikverein and they sent me the tickets!
     
    Although my seats are not next to each other anymore... However they said in the mail that these are better than my original seats. 
    They are now Balcony Middle Left and Balcony Middle Right, both row 5, seat 12 for Sunday.
     
    Plus they even included my 2 standing tickets for Saturday (that I chaotically put in the basket as well - was logged into two accounts on two computers lol)
     
    And of course, if some of my friends are not able to join, I will sell them here at face value

    Perhaps it's JW that is still undecided about a few things and is moving up things a little. It's a once-in-a-lifetime concert for him as well, so I can imagine him being very thoughtful about what to perform with this specific orchestra on such an occsasion.
     
    Given what looks like the four violin pieces from Across the Stars album in the first half, I'm still dreaming about Mutter being announced as a surprise guest later on
     
     
    I was the one guessing. I'm more than pleased to have guessed wrong! It looks like it's going to be fully conducted by JW.

    It's been tough, but I secured my 4 tickets for Saturday! Row 21, couldn't get anything else closer to the stage in the same row, but I won't complain at all. This is going to be historic.
     
    Btw, I think the Musikverein is purposefully keeping tickets for the general sale on Thursday. Be ready to act quick! Plus, Marian heard that the very first rows and the seats near the orchestra on the stage might not be available because they will extend the stage.
     
    I need a cup of tea now
