NDR Elbphilharmonie Play Star Wars in Hamburg

Recommended Posts

Caught a bit of this on Radio 3 today




Its really good!  They play the Main Title, Luke and Leia, The Asteroid Field, Imperial March, Cantina Band, The Forest Battle and the Throne Room and End Title


Particularly enjoyed Cantina Band, they were more authentic in the instrumentation and performance style than most live renditions I’ve heard. 


Also nice to have an audience that doesn’t burst into inane ecstatic applause after each movement, like you usually have to suffer at film music concerts. Nice to see them respecting this suite as the serious symphonic repertoire piece that it is.
