    Yup. And for me no biggie since I order now stuff regularly from them and very understandable since they would lose quite a bit of money sending these separate discs to all those who ordered these releases from them.

    And this score actually has some very good sections. I have a certain childhood nostalgia for this score since it is the first the Lord of the Rings music I ever heard. I remember borrowing it from the library on LP.

    Incanus got a reaction from Jay in Leitmotif/themes/motifs within Saving Private Ryan and Schindler's list   
    Rare is a John Williams score that doesn't feature a theme of some kind. Both Schindler's List and Saving Private Ryan both have thematic recurring musical ideas, that while thematic are not necessarily leitmotivic in nature as they do not always have that specific meaning tied to a single idea/place/character etc. but rather the movie as a whole.

    Saving Private Ryan has a long lined main theme best heard at the start of the track Omaha Beach which then appears throughout the score. There is also at least one additional recurring brass motif that appear e.g. in:
    Track 4 Finding Private Ryan 0:23-1:40
    Track 7 Wade's Death 2:40-2:55

    John Williams is revered as the composer par excellence for some of Hollywood's most popular film scores. This has pushed another facet of his career somewhat into the background that is no less important: John Williams as concert conductor. Williams' career on the podium began when he succeeded Arthur Fiedler, who in his fifty-year tenure had made the Boston Pops Orchestra a national institution and a globally recognized ensemble. Given the daunting task, Williams' conducting turned out to be a brilliant choice. Williams legitimized the film music repertoire by treating it with more philological respect and seriousness than he had previously received - which in turn meant that it was also valued by other orchestras. He commissioned new, musically more demanding symphonic arrangements of popular classics and the Great American Songbook, replacing the lackluster and "kitschy" arrangements in the pop repertoire. He also expanded the orchestra's core classical repertoire by performing European composers who had not previously been performed and commissioning new works. Williams' legacy with the Boston Pops is superbly portrayed in this box that gathers the albums recorded for Philips from his first decade at the helm of the orchestra. The set is rounded off by an intimate project with the unforgettable Jessye Norman: Williams returns to his pianistic roots and accompanies Norman on songs by Leonard Bernstein, Michel Legrand, Richard Rodgers, Kurt Weill, George Gershwin, Frederick Loewe and Billy Joel. Jessye can also be heard on a second disc of this collection with the Pops and sings the Great American Songbook. Philip Classics 'recordings are one of the most important testimonies to the importance of Williams' work with the Boston Pops and the most comprehensive example of the musical skills, interpretive acumen and stylistic breadth of the conductor John Williams.

    Incanus got a reaction from Amer in Danny Elfman's SLEEPY HOLLOW (1999) - 2021 4-CD Expanded Edition from Intrada Records   
    After listening to the new set, mainly discs 2, 3 and 4 (I love the OST album btw, a well put together collection of highlights), I have to say I love this score even more than before. The film score with its different mix and takes compared to what I have been so used to with the OST for years, actually makes this new presentation feel fresh. As people have been mentioning in this thread, the new film mix is easier on the ears than the loud "hot mix" of the OST, and reveals new little details in the score in a great way. To my ears especially the vocals are emphasized in the film takes in a great way.
     
    The subtler connective cues absent from the OST feel like they add to the whole and even though the score is far from subtle in its often grand gestures, the more I listen the more intricacies I can hear. I think this must be one of Elfman's most intricate pieces of writing in terms of how densely and frequently he weaves his thematic ideas together and around each other throughout.
     
    The alternates often might not be radically different but you can clearly hear the development of these lengthy sequences Elfman wrote and how they often go from the somewhat broader less thematic gestures to leaning more heavily on the three main ideas in the finished film. It is a rare thing to get such an extensive glimpse to the film scoring process and there are quite a few great moments among the alternate material on discs 3 and 4.

    A really fantastic set! And might actually make this my favourite Elfman score.
