  1. I wonder if its just a case of publishers slowing down because orchestra libraries aren’t buying right now, due to pandemic and lack of performances.
  2. In regards to expanding this I believe the fees would be the same no matter where in America it was recorded. I’m unaware of the LA Local in the AFM having a different agreement than the rest of our union, but I could be wrong.
  3. Thanks for the tip, I just picked it up with The Thin Red Line - this 30% off sale is great!
  4. Mine came yesterday! I won't be able to get to it until I listen to Far and Away, but the booklet looks great as usual!
  5. It is! I just received it yesterday from them along with Far and Away.
  6. ...to be honest, while it's not interesting on its own - Hildur's score is extremely effective in the film. As well as her work on Chernobyl. She did the job, and did it well. So please don't make excuses for her win.
  7. I’m proud we’re the first to announce it here in NJ!
  8. He sounded great in this interview, it was a fantastic piece!
  9. I enjoyed it. I understand what people didn’t enjoy here, not saying they’re wrong or the criticism isn’t valid. But I couldn’t help but enjoy it the whole time. To each their own!
  10. It is probably my favorite post-2005 Williams score, though for me it has some very strong competition from Lincoln - they both do a lot for me. I do consider War Horse to be masterpiece level from Williams, and I think it is one of his greatest original soundtrack albums as well. It's so well arranged and tells a complete story on its own. In that sense I feel like the score is practically a tone poem and works as a self contained piece of programmatic music.
  11. It's up there for me too - love this musical. I also love the idea of having an updated version that will stand up better in my classroom when I show this to kids. As great as the original film is, it LOOKS dated to their eyes.
  12. I’m surprised people seem “eh” about the David Newman announcement. Nobody mentioned, but he has conducted the vast majority of the live to film performances of the original WSS film - he’s actually a perfect choice and should know the score very intimately at this point.
  13. My mistake, thanks! I thought I remembered the London Symphony being involved.
  14. Tracks 5 and 6 on this album are credited only to Horner rather than Horner/Franglen, which is interesting. I wonder if it's something original he wrote? I don't know how long the Pandora project would have been in development.
  15. There shouldn't be any new union fees for Avatar though, right? It was recorded in London as far as I know. And does Disney own the score now?
  16. My set shipped yesterday and should be arriving on Saturday, along with Schindler's list. Very exciting!
  17. Order 167300, and received my confirmation at 3:07 (12:07 LLL time) that day. I’ve been in awaiting shipment since December 1st, maybe it’ll make it out of there this week!
  18. So what I wonder is this - with Ross conducting the LSO, do we think it’s possible Williams was originally intended to record this himself in London while on tour in Europe?
  19. Leshnoff was one of my undergraduate music theory professors!
