ACROSS THE STARS - Williams / Mutter collaboration album - Deluxe Edition NOW AVAILABLE

Recommended Posts

Markings, The Chairman’s Waltz, A Prayer for Peace, and a shorter Hedwig’s Theme were definitely recorded. Spielberg walked in on them practicing Remembrances. A photo of sheet music ends with the word “princess” so probably Hán Solo and the Princess. She mentioned Leia’s theme at some point, but I guess could have meant Luke and Leia.

The sheet music in that "TROS photo" said Leia's Theme too.

Didn't hear about this? Was there an article on it?

It'll be interesting to see if those other pieces are performed in concert. 

 

HS & the Princess, Remembrances, Prayer for Piece, Yoda's Theme and Markings aren't included in the Tanglewood or Munich programs (which are nearly identical). But they might be performed as encores.

 

  • Just Down West Street (Tanglewood) / "Star Wars" Main Theme (Munich)
  • Theme from “Jurassic Park”
  • Rey’s Theme from “Star Wars Episode VII”
  • Across the Stars from "Star Wars Episode II"
  • Donnybrook Fair from “Far & Away”
  • Harry’s Wondrous World from “Harry Potter”
  • Night Journeys from “Dracula”
  • Sayuri’s Theme from “Memoirs of a Geisha”
  • The Devil’s Dance from “Witches of Eastwick”
  • Superman March
  • Theme from “Sabrina”
  • Princess Leia’s Theme from “Star Wars Episode IV”
  • The Duel from “The Adventures of Tintin”
  • The Flying Theme from “E.T.”
  • The Chairman’s Waltz from “Memoirs of a Geisha”
  • Love Theme from “Cinderella Liberty”
  • Hedwig's Theme from "Harry Potter"

Leia's Theme will be performed live. So if they actually recorded it along with the other aforementioned pieces, a second volume might include the following (*):

 

  • Just Down West Street
  • Theme from “Jurassic Park”
  • Harry’s Wondrous World from “Harry Potter”
  • The Devil’s Dance from “Witches of Eastwick”
  • Princess Leia’s Theme from “Star Wars Episode IV”
  • The Flying Theme from “E.T.”
  • The Chairman’s Waltz from “Memoirs of a Geisha”
  • Remembrances from "Munich"
  • A Prayer for Piece from "Munich"
  • Han Solo and the Princess from "Star Wars Episode V"
  • "Markings"

 

(*) I don't think the Star Wars and Superman themes will be performed live as violin arrangements.

I’m sure that Theme from “Jurassic Park”, Harry’s Wondrous World from “Harry Potter”, The Devil’s Dance from “Witches of Eastwick”, Superman March and The Flying Theme from “E.T.” will be performed as regular arrangements we’ve known and love for years. Also Just Down West Street... Anne Sophie will need breaks between the performances, this is normal. 

 

We''ll definitely hear Princess Leia’s Theme, which will not be on the album. That's good news. :) 

 

I still hope that the concert in Tanglewood will be recorded in HD, like many others that took place there.

I was totally disinterested in this album at first, thinking that it would be nothing more than a glorified violin solo of the popular themes. But all these virtuosic samples, and tons of new material within them convinced me to pre-order it asap. I love how experimental John Williams is with these arrangements, and I'm already craving for more!

Same here but I may hold off on getting it physically until the missing tracks are clarified. It's Streaming Town until then!

7 Night Journeys (From "Dracula") 5:38
8 Theme (From "Sabrina") 4:58
9 The Duel (From "The Adventures of Tintin") 4:23
10 Luke and Leia (From "Star Wars: Return of the Jedi") 5:01

Total duration is around 54 minutes so I guess there will be extra tracks on the vinyl release since it's a double LP.

That's great news! So at least one mystery about this set has been resolved. I would've been devo if that awesome extended version (we only heard hints of) was missing entirely.
