  1. My reason for asking this is that I went to two Star Wars: Live-to-Projection concerts at the Kennedy Center, Washington, DC—A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back—with the National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Steven Reineke. I was disappointed with how the brass section handled the playing of Williams outstanding notes—they were not pronouncing the notes as sharply as they should be. Other orchestras I’ve witness on stage did a better job at them—the Baltimore Symphony and the New Jersey Symphony. I would think that if Maestro Reineke have heard these wrong notes that he would work hard in having the brass musicians correct them, but, to my ear, he didn’t and just let them get away with it. I’m wondering if it may be the lack of rehearsal time the orchestra may have been given that is causing the problem. Incidentally, during the intermission of the SW-ANH performance in New Jersey, one of the French horn players volunteered to greet the audience and I asked him how much rehearsal time the orchestra had in this program. He said that they had two 4-hour rehearsals—one rehearsal a day—within 7 days before the first public performance. So I’m wondering if other orchestras have a different procedure.
  2. FCL just announced CE3K will be joining the other JW scores in being screened with a live orchestra. Personally I think this may be one of the highlights, and surely one of the most testing on the orchestra! No dates announced yet but presuming they will follow in due course.

  5. The conductor Ludwig Wicki helmed 21st Century Orchestra from Lucerne Switzerland has been for years been performing various film scores (notably the Lord of the Rings Trilogy) live to the picture. This year they have several of these "Live" performances including Back to the Future, Ratatouille and Titanic. It seems they are also doing a 10 concert run of John Williams's Raiders of the Lost Ark in December 2015. More info here! P.S. My Deutsch is a bit rusty so I would appreciate if someone could verify this. The info page is a bit scant on the specifics but it looks like one of those Live! concerts the orchestra has been doing for some time now.
  6. http://www.hollywoodbowl.com/tickets/et-extra-terrestrial/2015-09-04 Looks like there will be no JW concert at the Bowl this year, but this sounds like a good alternative. It appears JW will only introduce the piece, still no info about who will conduct (maybe David Newman?)
