Harry Potter - Live to Projection Concerts

Recommended Posts

Excellent news! This live to projection trend is really growing by leaps and bounds. Something as music filled as HPPS is perfect for a live concert setting.

When will we get The China Syndrome live to projection?

About the same time with the Angela's Ashes live to projection.

Well, you never know, maybe HP5 and 6 might sound a little more detailed in concert, but honestly, I couldn't be bothered to pay for it... not now at least. As for HP1 being difficult, HP2 and 3are just as difficult, I think.  If only they'd do it in London, I could probably go. Come to think of it, they can't not do Harry Potter in the UK!

Some questions:
- What do you think would happen to film version edits? For instane, 'The Gobletof Fire' has no trumpets in the film version.
- How on earth will they tackle all the microedits in JW's scores? Do they have to rewrite the sheet music?
- WHat about tracked/unused music?

That doesn't mean a damn thing. Many scores got a Live To Projection concert without getting an expanded release in the months that followed!

 

*fan hears* Every Live To Projection score gets a complete and chronological release within a few months.

Oh, this is really interesting. I really loved Indy’s first adventure live from his 2010 concert in Fort Worth, the only time I’ve been to the US, so I would give almost anything to have these kinds of concerts here in Eastern Europe.

We have an orchestra who over the years basically became our film music orchestra, and they are popular, almost always sold out (even rehearsals), and enthusiastic about John Williams, so I guess it’s something. I’ve seen them 3 or 4 times already, they do interesting things (like the 1812 Overture with an extra military brass ensemble), but they usually do the basic John Williams themes, Star Wars, Imperial March, HP, JP, ET, and so on (If somebody is in the area this April, there will be a fully John Williams themed concert by them here in Budapest. This will be the first time that they will play Catch Me If You Can, Hook and Memoirs of a Geisha).

If they follow this path, maybe in a few years we can enjoy these kinds of concerts without leaving the continent. Let’s hope :)

the Live To Projection is happening has no relation to a possible release of the complete HP scores.

 

I agree with this.

 

Warners is clearly not interested in doing expanded releases themselves, nor licensing it out to the specialty labels.  We're more likely to finally get that elusive sessions leak than official expanded releases soon, I think.

 

But I think official ones will happen eventually, some day!

The Home Alone concert was really fun; A lot of it was due to the fact that watching a (good) comedy with an audience is always a fun time, the laughter being so infectious.  Also, I totally love the score and it was admirably performed, which was great.

 

Harry Potter, I love the score too, and also like the film.  But the audience might be filled with more children than say the LOTR or STID concerts I've been to.  Hopefully they don't get restless and annoying!

But what about MVs "Potter is so close that I can smell it"??
