With 47 Oscar nominations to his credit, more than any other living person, John Williams, at age 80, shows no sign of slowing down. He’s currently working on his 26th film score for director Steven Spielberg in a career that has no equal. Join host Jon Burlingame for American Journey, A Tribute to John Williams, Sunday, February 26 at 1 p.m. on Classical KUSC.


On his Facebook page Burlngame also wrote:

talks to John Williams about his illustrious career, and plays lots of his music (including some unreleased gems) on Sunday before the Oscar telecast.

ET Botanicus in pristine sound

NBC Rodeo theme

Lost recording of Michael Dukakis fanfare

Great Performances without someone reading a list of sponsors

Danger KM! Danger!

And this sounds like a really great programme! :) First of all Burlingame is a Williams fan and knows his film music so I bet it will be a very interesting interview/tribute.

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-

Jon Burlingame says:

Some of my John Williams interview -- portions we couldn't fit into Sunday's two-hour special -- will air at 8 a.m. Pacific time Saturday on KUSC's "Arts Alive" program (streaming at www.kusc.org ).


The Sunday special will not be available for streaming on demand later on, so you better record this :)

If it's on US Pacific Standard Time than it should be airing in about 3.5 hours.

Has anyone tested all the formats

It opens in VCL but I can only record a 128k MP3 stream

Maybe there is a AAC somewhere

Of course this is in the remote chance we'll get any true unreleased JW piece

I'd imagine if there's unreleased music it'll be from the Tintin or War Horse promos, as it is a pre-Oscar telecast.

What's that piece playing when the interviewer first mentions the comedy films? Right before How to Steal a Million.

Are you listening through the red play button on the top right of the page. Quality sounds OK to me. I'm not an audiophile, but I wouldn't say it's abyssimal.

A lot of these interview bits aren't original. The Star Wars bit came with the Phantom Menace DVD I think.

Ah okay. I thought the arrangement had been specifically written for Williams on Williams, as I don't have the Jaws OST.

The first cue might have been the OST, but the second cue certainly wasn't.

I listened to the 30 second clip of The Barrel Chase from Wiliams on Williams on amazon. Sounds like the cue I was looking for...

Right now it's the Elegy for Cello and Orchestra, one of Williams' most gorgeous concert works. The first piece was the cello concerto, I believe.
