  1. Good! There’s some rehashing of material in the score, but on the whole it’s got some nice new music. Rose’s theme is the highlight of the new material.
  2. The Batman theme is all over the film, to the point where I feel like other themes are even influenced by it. It’s cool. Honestly, yes, the score is rough. But you know what? It’s a step in the right direction and I’m glad it exists.
  3. I had a lot of luck to be brought backstage at his Philly concert by a friend, and got to take a picture with him - but he was on his way out so I wasn't going to bother him with an autograph!
  4. I'm basically center for most of the shows too, cool! I actually got the same seat 2 nights in a row for ROTJ and TFA.
  5. I got tickets for all four as well, though I tended to pick the cheapest seats, all third tier. ANH - Saturday 9/16 ESB - Tuesday 9/26 ROTJ - Thursday 10/5 TFA - Friday 10/6
  6. I have to say, I like the abridged Hymn to the Fallen. Composers revise their work all the time, and I think that this was done because he felt it could be tightened up, not for time considerations. And from that viewpoint I agree. I think it works. Also - I have no problem with the vibraphone player!
  7. Ahhh darn. I had literally just recieved the email from them. Oh well, sorry!
  8. Williams returns to conduct the Chicago Symphony on April 24th 2018. http://cso.org/ticketsandevents/production-details-2017-18/cso-movies/cso-movies-john-williams-returns/
  9. Thanks! I was able to order it.
  10. At the end of the end credits I'd advise against using the concert ending, it's really abrupt and doesn't quite fit the winding down flow of the piece. The film ending, which is included as an option, is definitely superior.
  11. We played the whole suite last night, but skipped the concert version and played the film version instead with the optional concert ending to the end credits. It would have been nice to try the concert version too, but it was still great. I didn't realize the end credits featured an extended version of Poe's theme in the suite - that was fun and unexpected!
  12. I'll be playing this tonight! it sounds wonderful, but I prefer the film version as well.
  13. Boston is basically like a disaster now, with the people mobbing that door. I'm embarrassed for some of those people and the way they conduct themselves trying to get his attention.
  14. I think Scherzo was faster than he took it on the OST - it was great! It was cool, I was at the first public performance of this piece when it was in Chicago, and now I got to hear Williams do it as well! Lots of energy in that piece - it's even better live than on the recordings! This is a bit of Scherzo. IMG_1658.MOV
  15. A good friend of mine is in the orchestra, and was really kind in letting me come back stage. An amazing concert!
