    Btw, Gloria confirmed me that the piece is going to be recorded by the Albany Symphony next year.

    jocores reacted to Datameister in Would you put The Ultimate War in your list of best action tracks by Williams?   
    It's endlessly inventive as it honors the swashbuckling musical tradition. Great energy, brilliantly performed, elevates the film...but damn, Williams has done a LOT of great action writing over the years. The competition is certainly fierce. If it's in my top ten, it's probably near the bottom...the top spots would likely be reserved for jawdroppers like The Asteroid Field, Desert Chase, maybe some stuff from Jurassic Park...but yeah, The Ultimate War could make the top ten list, depending on the day.

    Could you move all those bots to a subforum where only the bots are able to post? Who knows, if there's any adaptive algorithm behind them, they might get sentient in the long run, distil all the internet's knowledge of JW into that forum, and perhaps end up writing his definitive biography.

    jocores reacted to publicist in John Williams: Unpopular Opinions   
    I don't consider new themes a per se blessing (i hardly need the ewok theme, and others in that vein). And why should RiR be unfocussed? It's a perfect wedding of two disparate elements unfolding over the course of 4 minutes, it's the kind of thing only an experienced old hand can deliver.

    Don't worry, I wouldn't have listened, read or cared about whatever you had to say. In fact, with that attitude, I think you've made me break my 'No Ignoring' rule.

    But they should have given the award to a real artist, Hildur Gudnadottir for example, rather than some movie composers...
