That little quote from JW looking back on his time as conductor at Boston and his continued work with them at Tanglewood was actually quite nice.

Well that's a bassoon so it's probably the bassoon concerto.


The first piece was the cello concerto, I believe.


You sure? I thought it was the Violin Concerto, but I don't remember if there was an official recording of that one...

You could be right. I don't own either of JW's violin concertos so I wouldn't know.

But this reminds me I need to listen to his cello concerto more often.

EDIT: Oh yeah you're right he said it was the violin concerto.

Unmistakably the Raiders recording of the march. It never gets old. It's never been done better.

I had to reopen it. Did I miss anything good between E.T. and Liberty Fanfare?

Wish there was more interview and less of the music that we've all heard a million times before....but we aren't really in the target audience for this (being a bit too hardcore and all), so I guess that's understandable.

Still a great treat on a Sunday Evening... even if I only got the second half and sometimes in less then stellar quality.

I think it's when Burlingame said JW has elevated film music from it's "much maligned" status. I think that's pretty reasonable. Conservative musicians are still pretty biased against film music, but it used to be much worse.

If someone has recorded the entire two hour special, will that person put it up on here or bring up a link to it?

Also, could someone notify me if and when it is available.

I was listening to the special on my Ipod, but I was on the road, and the area I arrived at interfered with the connection, so I missed the whole last hour.

So, if a replay of the entire special is available, will someone please notify me? Thank you.

That's a bit harsh! A lot of work and time went into producing the program. It might not be for you but it wasn't useless!

No no, that's not what I'm saying!

I mean as keeping a recording of it. All those other cues are on c.d. in much higher quality

I'm a bit disappointed the only version of Great Performances we'll have for the next 20 years is 128kbps only

Ars superior est vita hominum.

 

"We pop out and come into the world and music is there. We didn't invent it - it's all organised in the atmosphere by divinity or whatever. It's a miracle." - John Williams-

 

I think music is a stream of some kind. It could be blood. It could be water. It could be ether. Whatever it is it seems to be a living, organic force that’s in motion, that serves humanity and is part of humanity and part of what describes us as humans. We sing, play, dance, all the things that we do. And there is a vibrant and great literature we have been given. ... As musicians, we join the stream. We swim in the stream with all the other millions of music makers. It’s a life force, a strong one, surrounding us and we are part of it. -John Williams-

Does anyone have some storage space (the recording is 320 megs) that I can use so others can hear this program because I've gotten several requests for the radio program? If so, please PM me.

What was the first piece at the start of the program? I don't think he identified it....and the one that was at the end? That was some really fine writing but I don't recognize what its from.

Both were selections from his American Journey score, as I recall.

And you recall right :)
In the start of the show, Burlingame used the beginning of the piece, and for the end, a selection from the final movement.

Thanks Brian! Unfortunately, Jon was limited to two hours of programming. I can't imagine how hard it was for him to decide what he was going to play and what he would ultimately have to drop. It was much easier for me to produce my program because I don't have any real time limits and I'm my own boss. If I wanted to produce a 10-part special I could of. I thought Jon did a really good job, however, and this is just me, if you are going to feature a score or a specific track let the track in this case play from start to finish without interruption!

So why are these concerts still streamed in 128 kbps MP3?

a)For the few people that still have dial up connections
b) Never bothered to upgrade the format as time went by
c)To prevent us from recording it in slightly less than atrocious sound quality

Most live streams are 128k. I have seen a few 160k and 192k but if you look at the streaming stations on iTunes most are 128k and lower. I'm sure it has something to do with bandwidth and costs. I stream my show at 128k.

I recorded this earlier this afternoon, or rather attempted to do so. Scheduled an unattended recording of the 128k stream, but it stopped about halfway through :(
