    What a great evening !

    I'll try to write a review tomorrow  But a good concert with some cues I was not familiar with. Also nice interviews of Shore about his process and his career, etc. If you have any questions, please ask. Although I'm sure I won't have the musical capacity to answer you. As I already said I'm a huge film music fan, I have a good ear and so on, but I don't know anything about theory. Shore conducted one piece during the concert and stayed on the scene when Ludwig Wicki was conducting the other pieces.
     
    What's also great is that Howard Shore new CD was on sale and we could have him sign it ! I also took some pictures  It was a really nice way to end the evening.
    By the way I remember reading (I think it was @Will) that you would not know what to say if you met John WIlliams and you would be afraid to be categorized as a SW fan and that's all… well… There are several things I would have liked to discuss with Shore. After all he is with Williams one of my favorite composer. But all I managed to says was "I went to four LOTR LTP concerts and there were all as great as tonight concert" with the poorest and dullest english accent possible (I have a pretty good accent usually.) DAMN !

    It doesn't sound outlandish to me to attach it to the beginning of the Lord of the Rings symphony going forward. Not that I think Howard will ever actually approve of that .

    I'm afraid I won't be able to attend the Event at the Cinémathèque Française with Howard Shore after all. So, I won't be able to tell you about that… 
    But I look forward to the concert tomorrow evening !

    It has the same name as track 3 on the Edward Scissorhands OST.  The song is otherwise unrelated, but I wouldn't have remembered the name of it otherwise.

    Williams could approach Luke quite a few ways, which makes it really exciting. Luke's Theme is one of the few SW themes in major, and if most of his scenes are solemn and dour then it'll be interesting to see how much he can actually use that theme. He might prefer the Force Theme.
     
    Might he deconstruct Luke's Theme and only present it in fragments, representing that Luke isn't the character we remember? And as the film progresses and Rey brings him back, gradually his theme becomes more 'complete', exploding in its fullest glory by the climax?
     
    Or could he avoid Luke's Theme altogether (barring the opening and closing) and assign something else, like Jedi Steps, as his new theme?
     
    And all the while developing Rey's musical journey in tandem. I think there'll be something very special for their scenes (given the religioso, mystical element to their island) and he will somehow link their two identities into something new & combined -- which will only mature by the third act when (presumably) shit goes down between the two.

    It doesn't gel perfectly, but I still think it's quite possibly the best we've seen of any cinematic sextet, especially of one with a decade in between two trilogies.
     
    In fact, one the complaints I always see is that the tone was made more serious and dire, like the Lord of the Rings, and the music follows that, too - which is an artistic choice that I like. Even in terms of grading, more softness was added to each film so the Battle of the Five Armies moves into Fellowship of the Ring quite nicely.
     
    If you think of them as separate entities (and I can see why), than you'd naturally be more inclined to find continuity problems ex silentio like that Saruman bit, or perhaps the fact that Balin seemingly retook Moria in between trilogies. I think we can also agree they are all minor issues, though.

    Yea, its the entire palette that makes LOTR the rich and rewarding experience it is, but the HOTR theme is still the main theme of the score!
