  2. Yeah, those aren't the most exciting microedits. The thing is LotR is known for having a vast amount of unheard alternates, microedits, missing material, etc, etc; and naturally the completists will want to hear it all. Personally, I've lost interest in a lot of the microedits. But every now and then, when cool stuff (like the Seduction of the Ring extension that Faleel discovered) are found, then I'm pretty excited by it. Part of the fun is digging into that 3 hour+ affair

    Yea, I think I agree with you. The album version has the perfect balance. Bilbo's themes are ones I honestly didn't pay much attention to for a long time, but recently I have been listening to all tracks that contain them a lot more and I have come to really love Bilbo's Adventure Theme and especially the Baggins/Took theme, I consider them among the very best themes of recent years. Shore really nailed both the book version of Bilbo as well as Martin Freeman's interpretation of Bilbo with those themes. Truly remarkable work.

  4. Skyfall is a boring score, An Unexpected Journey is full of life!

  5. Just today I was thinking what an achievement for the ages it will be once all six scores are released. I truly think this will remain unparalleled forever.

  6. I reckon this could be a lot of fun if they make it a 'theme evening'. "Oh you should see the Albert Hall. 5, 272 Londoners watching every movement of your Baton, willing you to make that killer swipe. The silence before you swipe, and the noise afterwards, it rises, rises like...like a storm, as if you were the thunder God himself". "I am the conductor. I shall be closer to you for the next hour, which will be the last of your miserable lives, than the bitch of a mother that brought you screaming into this world. I did not come here for you for your company, I came here so that I could profit from your film score obsession....and as your mother was there at your beginning, so I shall be there at your end. And when you clap, and clap you shall, your transition shall be to the sound of...( ).........Londoners I salute you""We who are about to conduct, salute you". "The frost. Sometimes it makes the Baton stick". "Are you not entertained? ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED Is this not why you are here?" etc etc Melange - Wouldn't mind attending that concert.

  9. Korngold. Without Williams, it would have taken me a lot longer to get into Korngold's film scores, but Williams provides a bridge to the past, as it were. Korngold tends to have many more rapid-fire notes in his themes and use more plain triads whereas Williams uses more longer notes, and relies on triads in addition to seventh chords and sus chords in his themes as a result of his early jazz years, no doubt. Both, however, are brilliant in their film scores.

    John Williams: The Year 1956

    Hmm, and that could be the basis for an even bigger list which would include every known Williams-related activity (concerts, recording sessions, events he attended, releases...), resulting in the most complete John Williams chronology ever created

    John Williams: The Year 1956

    Fixed. And one of these days I'll have to add all his non-film works as performer/arranger/orchestrator/conductor from the 50s amd 60s. You and Miguel will be the main sources of course
