  1. It's frustrating but at the same time... it's frustrating.

  3. I wonder if John creates the alternates preemptively, or after Spielberg requests them. Artists and designers taught by [good] teachers, are always taught to offer a small choice to their "patrons" to help steer the conversation. "Here's the piece with drums and here it is with col legno strings" would make the discussion in your patrons mind about col legno vs. drums instead of say "I HATE YOUR WORK, I NEED SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT!" while still satisfying their need to make a decision. It basically becomes habit. So you as the artist get to maintain the vast majority of your work's integrity. It's not so much alternates, as how often (more so than other composers' scores I've studied) Williams uses 'cueing.' What this means is if say 'Cue Only' is written next to the 1st trumpet part, it means that it's non essential (or ad lib - in classical terminology - with Williams 'ad lib' has aleatory connotations) - and can be kept in or left out at Williams's discretion on the podium.
