The United States Army Field Band Premieres Force Awakens Music Live

I really like this tempo.

Yeah, funny how listening to the original after this it sounds sooo lethargic (to be expected really) but I think the speed really works better for the style of writing. But of course Williams is a bit beholden to the pacing of the scene.

The kind of writing of this piece demands a lighter tempo, otherwise, the long sustained notes of Luke's Theme slow down the movement, if only at a psychological level. I like that the conductor here took that decision.

I'm not sure if its "Asteroid Field" level material, but that's a great performance! I wonder how much time they had with the arrangement.

I do not understand these sorts of comparisons. the asteroid field is one of the best film cues ever composed. of course a given piece is not going to measure up to such a standard.

YouTube seriously took your video down? How lame!

 Seems to be back now.  I got the takedown notice and everything from them.  Weird.

 

Thanks for the info on it all Adrian, it was awesome!
