Han Solo and the Princess, played the LSO!




A soaring piece of the starry skies beyond our own, and just the orchestra to do it justice.

Just the orchestra and solo humming 😄

John Williams' string writing can be very thick, and it takes a certain kind of orchestra to make that come alive, to bring out the subtly moving lines.  Otherwise you suffocate in them!

That's why he uses 16/16 for violins (or is it 18/16, not sure lol)
