    filmmusic got a reaction from HornerIsTheMan in NEW Omni Publishing Sheet Music release: James Horner's Willow   
    Thank you very much filmusicfan.
    I take it, this will be internationally available?
    Also, I was wondering what the cover will be.
    I know the music is what matters, but the Willow poster is I think my favourite film poster ever that marked my childhood.

    Hi All,
    Omni Music owner/editor here. Just released the third print run for Batman, and felt it wise to include in the announcement that Willow is in the works. Felt people could use some good news about Horner. It's sad he won't be able to see the finished product. All the other releases were given to the composers, sometimes personally.
    It seems by the posts that some of you are curious about the music, since this will be the first Omni release that doesn't have a complete soundtrack. Here's a list of the music you can expect to be included. Keep in mind that Horner never titled his compositions. In fact, only one had an official title, so I had to make them up based on the scene:
    1m1 Elora's Birth / Titles (CD Elora Danan)
    -missing village festival source-
    -missing High Aldwin fanfare-
    2m5 Village Attack (Not on CD)
    3m1 Saying Goodbye (Not on CD)
    3m2 Bavmorda & Kael (Not on CD)
    3m3 Search / Travel Montage (some material contained in Willow's Journey Begins)
    4m2 Crossroads (some material contained in Willow's Journey Begins)
    4m3 The Brownies (Not on CD)
    -missing tavern source-
    -dust of broken heart tracked in from 7m2-3 / 8m1-
    5m2 Escape From The Tavern (same as CD)
    6m0 Bavmorda Slaps Kael (Not on CD)
    -missing Willow's first use of the wand (improv shakuhachi)-
    -missing arrival at the island-
    -missing meeting Fin Razel (Fairlight pad and pan flute)-
    7m0 Sorsha Arrives (Not on CD)
    7m1 The Trek (Not on CD)
    7m2-3 / 8m1 Snowy Escape (Not on CD)
    8m2 Canyon Of Mazes (same as CD)
    9m1 Tir Asleen Battle Pt. 1
    9m2 Tir Asleen Battle Pt. 2 (combined for the CD as Tir Asleen)
    10m1 Spell / Razel Transforms (first half of Bavmorda's Spell Is Cast)
    11m1 / 2 Nockmaar Battle Pt. 1 (second half of Bavmorda's Spell Is Cast)
    (NOTE: Bavmorda's Spell Is Cast is broken in two at the 09:13 mark)
    12m1 / 2 Nockmaar Battle Pt.2
    12m4 End Credits
    12m1-2-4 are Willow The Sorcerer on the CD. The tune lead-in to the end credits has no written music, improvised based on charts, however the orchestra starts with pizz. before the statement of the adventure theme starting at 07:33. Some of this may require takedowns, which is nothing new. I had to transcribe the cue from Edward "Picking The Lock." Same with "Picture Fades" from BTTF.
    Based on time stamps of the files, I've been working since March 28th. There are 3 more left to engrave, then it's a matter of proofing to the recording, and printing. This one should be ready in a month, early August is realistic.

    Especially in the case of John Williams, who is so careful about the overall structure of the film score and the development of the themes along the course of the narration, a "highlight" presentation almost never does justice to his work. And I have a similar feeling about most of the concert suite arrangements (with a few exceptions, such as, maybe, the Three pieces from Schindler's List, Escapades, and the two pieces from Angela's Ashes). Sometimes it seems like he tries to put in "song form" (in the technical sense) something that has a much richer and more satisfying structure in its original form.
    Well, I cannot wait to receive my copy of the complete A. I., it will be amazing!

    Exactly what I love in all complete scores, something that an album presentation (with selected highlights in mixed order) can never grasp!

    It was indeed very, very nice of Universal to release the extra music, and cool of John Williams to arrange the extra cue into suites that actually sound nice.
    BUT I STILL WANT A COMPLETE AND CHRONOLOGICAL RELEASE ON PHYSICAL CD!

    Star Wars is complete.
    Empire is missing the film version ending of Luke's Nocturnal Visitor.
    Jedi is missing various versions of Ewok Celebration, the Jabba the Hutt concert arrangement, the sail barge source music and some unused source music. And Lapti Nek, of course.

    Well, i see it's missing also the Typewritter chord (in case it was recorded), so not really complete yet.

    OK, I just tried something. I went to all 5 retailers that I know will be selling it, and used The Naked Gun trilogy (a 3CD LLL set that retails for $35 just like AI will) using first my home address, then a random address I picked in the UK. Here are the final prices:
    US address:
    LLL: $40.98 ($34.98 + $6.00)
    SAE: $41.20 ($34.95 + $6.25)
    MM: $37.98 ($34.99 + $2.99) - don't forget at MM, if your order includes at least 3 new titles, shipping is $1!
    Intrada: $40.54 ($34.99 + $5.55)MBR: 50,25 € [~$54.85 USD] (39,95 € + 10,30 €)
    UK address:
    LLL: $49.98 ($34.98 + $15.00)
    SAE: $49.95 ($34.95 + $15.00)
    MM: $49.98 ($34.99 + $14.99)
    Intrada: $52.99 ($34.99 + $18.00)
    MBR: 48,65 € [~$53.09 USD] (39,95 € + 8,70 €)

    So basically, MovieMusic.com wins no matter where you live!

    I have to say, my favourite cue from the score (and one of my favourite post 2000 Williams cues) is the chorus piece heard in the Journey through Ice scene. (which in reality is the 2nd version he did)

    The strange thing for me is this:
    So, Williams doesn't agree for a few seconds or a couple of minutes of great film music to be released in some expansions (eg. Hook, Indiana Jones etc.), but he does agree on the release of some pop songs based on his melodies?

    (or maybe these were imposed without his consent from the studio?)

    The OST version actually removes the Rosenkavalier quote with a clumsy edit of "The Mecha World", but I remember reading back then that it had to be removed because there were issues about the rights with the Strauss estate (and I guess it was a last-minute change before the disc went to print).
    However, I'm quite sure Disc 1 of the Academy promo is very likely the OST original assembly (which included the Rosenkavalier quote), before they had to change and also chose to include the pop arrangement of the main theme.

    Of course we don't know; Not a single clue of any kind has been dropped about this release.
    And I'm not sure if the June flyer would mention who the producer of the title is or not...... but it's worth noting that MV has mentioned the producer before in the text that goes up with a monthly flyer, for example this one:
