And it will also be available in video soon ;)

Highlights were Valerian, ghost writer and Harry Potter. Shape of water was nice. The other stuff was ok. But the orchestra was great and so was the venue. It was the first time I was in choir seats and I loved seing the conductor face during the concert ! Desplat is a nice conductor I would say. Calm but meticulous !

 

I go back on Saturday for a concert (also directed by Desplat) with my girlfriend. This time It will only be about film music. I hope he will include Godzilla and imitation game.

 

 

Vidéo recording will be here: https://www.arte.tv/fr/videos/080586-024-A/alexandre-desplat-dirige-l-orchestre-national-de-france/

 

I’ll listen to the whole thing later but was Obliviate part of the Potter suite?

Wow, Valerian sounded great! I liked hearing the "Medusa" cue around the 12:40 mark and then the space battle around 14:00.

 

What a great score Valerian is. I'm surprised it's not talked about more.

 

Chewy, I seem to remember you putting together a "complete version" of the score last year. How much of the score is unreleased do you think?

I just got bad news from the venue… Saturday's concert is cancelled due to the ongoing protests in Paris… well, I'm happy I decided to go to both yesterday's concert and saturday. Otherwise, I would have been disapointed.

Just starting the Valerian Suite now!

Interesting that it begins with Flight Over Big Market, and not something that actually introduces the main themes like an edited version of Pearls On Mul, or the unreleased Main Title cue.  Huh.

You're joking!

 

Just finished the suite; It doesn't end strong, either.  But neither does the score itself, since Besson ended the film with a pop song so Desplat has to wrap up what he wants to say before the film gets there

I would've loved to hear Pearls On Mul…

The Deathly Hallows suite was twice as long than I expected, but it was beautiful.

 

This is true ! When I was there, everytime a new cue was starting I was thinking "damn I hope there is still time for //insert other cue name here//". And at the end, the suite was so long that it had almost everything I wanted in it.
