  1. Thanks so much for sharing this. Do we know if this is from "The Maestro's Finale" short or is it taken from the longer "Skywalker Legacy" documentary?
  2. What's the JW piece that you would most like to hear performed live, that's never been performed live before to your knowledge, conducted live by JW, by which orchestra and where? I'm really curious to learn more from others' thoughts about the sum of the piece + the orchestra + the venue and the trade-offs involved perhaps. The venue could even be a studio, with no audience - apart from you. FWIW, the vibe in the RAH in London in 2018, even in JW's absence was such that this would be my chosen venue, overriding the substandard acoustics and I'd want a crowd (as desirab
  3. Good point. Maybe I should be asking if there's enough life to make it sticky. We'll see, I guess. There's a brilliant website that lists all film music-related concerts around the world (http://www.moviesinconcert.nl); we need the scoring sessions equivalent in thread form, I think.
  4. Listening now to the 'live' broadcast of the concert but do we know if it will be made available as a stream beyond tonight? Thanks for any help anyone can offer. APBez
  5. I wonder if it's worth starting a thread here that logs which film scores are currently being recorded and where. Back in 2005, I had the pleasure of meeting John Williams and George Lucas at Abbey Road Studios as they recorded the score for Star Wars: ROTS. If my memory serves, I think I only learned that it was recording at the time thanks to a board member here who may have been in the LSO (or maybe a board member had got this information from an LSO player?). Anyway, that snippet of information led me to Abbey Road - I was the only fan there - and access to artists as they arrive is very o
  6. Hi, I'm selling my signed copy of Doug Adams's book 'The Music of the Lord of the Rings Films' (including the 'Rarities ' CD). It's signed by both composer Howard Shore and author Doug Adams. Link with details and photos below: http://www.ebay.com/itm/The-Music-of-The-Lord-of-the-Rings-Films-SIGNED-BY-HOWARD-SHORE-/171125980907?pt=Non_Fiction&hash=item27d7e73eeb Cheers, APBez
  7. Bit late to the thread and missed this interview. Any chance anyone can re-upload at some point? Thanks in advance. Thanks, nightscape, for the 2005 interview. What a crazy-busy-but-great year that was for Williams. Cheers, APBez
  8. I've no reason to doubt your certainty that it's a JW sketch. Just wondering what the tell-tale signs are that this is his work. It's a wonderful read and should provide plenty of scope for a great JW score. Can't believe we've not heard about this project before now.
  9. Anyone have any information about when the Skyfall recording sessions took place at Abbey Road Studios? Just trying to gauge when the Bond 24 sessions might be. Thanks, APBez
  10. Can anyone point me in the direction of the lengthy 'On The Score' audio interviews Daniel Schweiger did for Film Music Radio (now Film Music Magazine) a few years back with James Horner (the rant about Troy and The New World) and Thomas Newman? I've searched and searched without success. I downloaded them at the time in mp3 format and dammit they've just gone missing from my library! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Best, APBez
  11. Whilst I can't add any photos to this thread, I must say I look forward to seeing what others are able to post. Great thread.
  12. Can those who have attended 'Hollywood In Vienna' in past years possibly clarify something? Website mentions "Evening attire is requested for the gala evening". How strictly is this enforced? Will smart casual suffice? Thanks in advance for your help. I know it's a while away yet but others have asked me to find out. APBez
