John Williams YouTube tributes thread

Recommended Posts

Williams-loving piano wunderkind Enguerrand-Friedrich Luhl is back with a new version of "The Flag Parade" for piano and orchestra.  I think I prefer his two-piano transcriptions, but this is an interesting change of pace...

Guys...GUYS

 

Everyone take a break from wringing your hands about the new Star Wars remasters and watch this.

 

Breathtakingly weird

From the creators:

 

"This is our homage to John Williams, the greatest film composer of this age. This is our homage to Steven Spielberg and the other great action/sci-fi /fantasy directors of history. This is our homage to cinematic adventures. We grew up with these films, they shaped who we are and are part of what drive us to create epic cinematic music. We thought we'd honour them by remixing the films and scores into a complete frenzy. It was also very fun to do.

Unfortunately, this is not on Youtube, but I couldn't find a better thread to put this in: I firmly believe a live Budapest Bár concert is the only place to hear Hedwig's Theme on a cimbalom improvised into a medley of Zemer Atik and Dancing with the Rabbi.

Recently I had the wonderful opportunity of having my two piano arrangement of "Welcome to Jurassic Park" played and recorded by two outstanding pianists, Joshua Tamayo and Victor Cheng (who also recorded my arrangement of The Jedi Steps & Finale).

 

 

Hope you guys enjoy it!

Here's my amateur recording from a concert from last Saturday:

So I take it you're not a fan of stuff like The Mighty Boosh?  Stuff that's bizarre just for the sake of being bizarre?

 

That's not the ONLY kind of humor I find funny, but yeah it can tickle me at times.

Is it the same origin, that very aggressive and cool brass passage from TLJ, in Battle of Crait? 

After Rey's theme, 03:18

 

Definitely! I just included "The Supremacy" instead of "Battle of Crait" b/c I was going for one example per film.

 

The TLJ motif is interesting in that it is so Ludlow-like in that appearance (and the analagous rendition during the opening Escape Battle). But intervallically, it's also related to the fairly anonymous sounding "Tension" motif first intro'd in TFA. And over the course of TLJ, it develops into the full-fledged "Holdo's Sacrifice" theme. Williams gets an amazing amount of mileage out of this little C-Eb-D-F-C melodic pattern.

Oh, didn't notice that TLJ was already included because in video it says SW episode VII when "The Supremacy" is playing. Sorry for that, I should know, my favorite score😜

 

But yes, so much fun of this melodic pattern😎😎😎
