  7. Before the concert I told ca. 10 people around me about the standing welcome, so when only Williams entered, there was a nice chunk of the front right floor up within 2 seconds. I was very happy that everyone around thought it was a great idea and we were quite synchronized. After Star Wars main title standing up and clapping was joined by some (positive) whistles. After first encores with Mutter, there were whistles and also some yelling. When Williams started the Raiders encore, Musikverein turned into Tanglewood, and people cheered and clapped for a good 3 measures. After Raiders, standing up and clapping and whistling and yelling were joined by mass thumping, and Williams seemed to have been really surprised. Part of it comes from the fact that over time the orchestra generally played better: Hook = good CE3K = magnificent Sabrina = ok Witches = very good Donnybrook = ok E.T = mixed / ok JP = mixed => the brass became ballsy and louder and louder and more precise, so later very good War Horse = magnificent Shark cage = very good Rebellion is Reborn = very good Luke and Leia = good SW main title = imho one of the best EVER Tintin = very good Remembrances = good Raiders = magnificent Imperial March = maybe the best ever "The brass awakens" motion was incredible. The trumpets and horns roared, and did so with precision. Some people, myself included were shocked how great and powerful some moments were Strings were very good to great, particularily impressive in CE3K, and later in the concert, during string tutttis I had a place right in the crossfire of the concertmaster and the first double bass. The first double bass was just madly good. Loud, broad, with tons of reverb, nearly dancing with his instrument, and with a deadly serious face. I made sure to make an eye contact with him during one of the ovations and send him my regards. There were some great woodwind solos as well. Some musicians were smiling broadly, one violist was supposedly crying from joy, and it seems that they really enjoyed this unique evening. It was a historical concert. After that a dozen of us met for some 3 hours of celebration in a restaurant, and it was very nice. Unforgettable P.S. I only feel a bit sorry for the concertmaster, who was totally stressed, stayed whole intermission to rehearse, curled up when Mutter wanted to "play" with him during the tintin duel, and had only a very brief/forced smile when Williams smiled at him. I think he did great!

  18. OTOH it's great ammunition Mike can use to convince him to assemble comprehensive, complete versions of all 3 scores, to present his musical vision as intended (rather than the hacked up mess in the films). Same with the prequels, though at least pretty much everything recorded got used. I doubt he's thrilled that so many hours of music went begging. A few cues here and there might not bother him but the hatchet job on the rest...?

  19. I know you were asking Richard, but as someone who considers this track not just a Williams highlight, but one of his favorite tracks ever, I'll say why I love it. The track is like you're a tiny Innerspace version of yourself riding on a river. It starts with a steady, yet small stream, with this sense of chugging and churning anticipation. It's light for a little while, but Williams gradually introduces the deep, lower end, building that anticipation even further. The chords start getting more dissonant, and that almost neutral sense of anticipation from before gets colored, and ominous; like that little stream you've been riding on is expanding, and you feel yourself starting to go down a slope, unsure if you'll quite make the drop. You do, and the track keeps building, and building. Come on, Williams, can you push it any more than you have? The answer is yes. After a brief respite, the music suddenly inclines even more, sharply, getting intense, more intense, more intense, then! 3:08 hits, and you see the whole vista in front of you has expanded into this beautiful, wide view of paradise. Bliss. The water is white levels of intensity, before calming down to a tranquil trickle, and your ride stops there. AI is a very spiritual score for me, and The Mecha World is one of several tracks that hit really close to home.

  20. It's hard to picture Disney releasing every single bit of score for all three sequel films. Even if they get Mike, I still have to question if Disney will see value in releasing an expensive, lavish set when they could release, for example, two discs per film and probably sell more units. I mean, you really have to get in the weeds like we - the few, the proud - do here, to worry about all the different cuts of the movie, the multiple versions of cues for scenes that were never used or even released, etc. A complete set for TROS would be mightily confusing to normal people. In fact... how do you even define what the TROS score should be? Is it the first version of every cue that JW wrote? Is it the final version of every cue he wrote? What if the alternates are completely different in some cases, and are meant to flow together in different ways due to shifting cuts? There's no way to go for "what Williams intended" because he intended different things at different points in the process. That seems to be moreso the case here (and with TFA) than most of his other scores. If you had the sessions for TROS right now, and had to decide how to create your edit... what the hell would you do??? Would you order the cues based on slate number? A rough order of the final cut of the film? An earlier cut of the film, which then makes your edit useless as a "soundtrack" in the first place? It's enough to make you CRAZYYYY!!

  22. I’m happy for all of you folks who could make the trip! This looked to be a fantastic concert. I hope he will come back to Europe soon. In the meantime, in order not to think too much bout this missed opportunity. I just bought last minute tickets for this: https://philharmoniedeparis.fr/fr/activite/concert/20399-wiener-symphoniker-philippe-jordan At least I’ll be hearing an orchestra tonight 😂

  26. Basically how I felt for all the Mutter pieces! But it was great to have her for ‘Remembrances’.

  27. The concert was absolutely amazing, but yes, aside from the ‘Remembrances’ encore, I felt there wasn’t really much to the Mutter arrangements, aside from providing her a chance to be a diva. Also, even though the VPO sounded great generally, you could tell it was all fresh music for them and there were some painful mistakes, some of which may have been JW’s fault. It made me feel a bit nervous honestly! I hope they’ll be more secure tomorrow since this is all recorded. But that aside, it was a legendary afternoon and something I will never forget!

  33. Both evoke John Adams, though JW's piece is much more modeled on Adams' famous music. Horner leans on several minimalist composers with his interlocking pianos (Adams' Halleluia Junction' may be a template). For me, Horner sounds more 'mathematic', which was obviously the gestating idea when it was applied to the two pictures linked below.

  34. Whoa this is weird. So 20th Century Fox was formed by a merger of Fox Film and Twentieth Century Pictures in 1935. The very last film released under the Twentieth Century Pictures banner before the merger completed was an adaptation of The Call of the Wild. Now, 85 years later the first film released under the Disney revived 20th Century Studios label is... an adaptation of The Call of the Wild.

  36. Yeah, I believe the cues were leaked from someone working on the LTP program. It's been floating around for a while now. Since it was for the LTP, it's basically just an isolated score of the film, no alternates or anything like that. Just the music heard exactly as it is in the film. Although if that one in particular is Trent's edit, I'm sure he added the music from the album and FYC. The version I have is just the raw isolated score cues. Now we just need a TROS isolated score and we'll have isolated scores for all three of the sequels!

  38. no, sadly and they have very strict security policies this time.. The general rehearsal is normally open to the public but they changed their minds.. these are from yesterday some more pics from after the rehearsals, a private autograph session for the musicians.. the one while signing the tuba is priceless.. 😆 I still have one pic left with the entire program with the first two encores, if someone wants a spoiler.. 😆
