    Great episode again. Had no idea Across the Stars was written first and then incorporated into the score.

    Final voting is done by a select panel. All we can do now is wait for the results, which will be announced in September.
     
    I feel like I have been nominated for an Oscar!

    Music, like other art forms, is very subjective, even what we want to call various pieces. Whether it's called the Hogwarts theme or the Gryffindor theme, it's still a great musical statement.
     
    I put in that version of the end credits because I didn't want to use the soundtrack version. I should have taken the music from my US DVD, but I made this decision in a split second, and figured the end credits was on YouTube, which would save time over re-connecting my DVD player to my laptop. The music did seem to run a bit faster.

    This is an error. Raiders of the Lost Ark was the only Spielberg film that has a score recorded by the LSO. Yes, Close Encounters played bits for the 1980 re-issue, but let's not count that.

    Return of the Jedi really rounded out the operatic feel of the entire trilogy score through its orchestration of the established themes, particularly Vader's theme. Perhaps the best musical moment of the entire original trilogy was the final lightsaber battle between Luke and Vader. It has the kind of music that no other composer could ever create for such an iconic moment.
     
    I talked about it in my "Return of the Jedi" episode of "The Baton: A John Williams Musical Journey." Click play below and you can hear my analysis of that lightsaber battle beginning at the 28:37 mark.

    I just hoped it would be her because I had enjoyed hearing her speak during that 2018 RAH concert. Also forgot to mention I really loved all the questions you asked her. Every time I wanted you to ask something, you did exactly that. Great interview.
     
    EDIT: Listening to Phanton Menace now. Totally agree that the emperor's theme in the opening cues is an incredibly stupid choice, but never ever realised it was hidden in the celebration fanfare.

    Thank you so much for all the feedback. It means a lot.
     
    An earlier draft of the script pretty much focused on the soundtrack more than the film version. But, I was essentially playing music without talking about it because I had little to no context for that music. I didn't want it to be an episode where I just play music -- even big fans of the music like you would get bored. So, I kept the focus on the film score and went with that.
     
    I wish I could have found any quotes from Williams regarding reading the novel beforehand but nothing came up in my research.
     
    I hope you will go back and catch up on other episodes. Imagine this podcast as a biographical novel. Would you skip over chapters in a novel?

    Thank you so much! That was my goal. Well, mostly to get people to forget the drama surrounding the replacement and at least give the score a chance.

    When the helicopter arrived at the Costa Rican island in "Jurassic Park," the music that accompanied it opened my ears to the brilliance of film scoring ... and the genius of John Williams. The "Jurassic Park" episode of "The Baton" is here, and I am joined by co-host David Kay to discuss why this score made such an impact on me and many others.

    I don't know how I missed that during editing. Thank you so much for catching that. I will fix it and re-upload the show today. 😞
     
    I hope that didn't ruin the show for you.
