  1. You're welcome. The recording dates for The Pagemaster can be found on page 864 of this PDF. https://lso.co.uk/images/pdf/DiscographyLSOWeb2018b.pdf
  2. Note that the day of October 21, 1995 was devoted to additional sessions for Balto in the morning and for Jumanji the afternoon.
  3. This is a mistake on the booklet. Pagemaster was recorded in August. The book will offer a chronological list with dates of 90% of the recordings. I was able to complete the list thanks to James Horner's collaborators and also by paying for research at the AFM local 47.
  4. The last rehearsal has just finished. Everything is ready. 😍 We are excited and proud. It's going to be great! 🥳 We are all delighted with the magnificent playing of the orchestra, and we are very grateful to the team of the Szczecin Philharmonic for helping us to continue the musical legacy of James Horner. 🙏 See you in 5 hours to follow the concert by following this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f94zLVD0fmE The video will remain online 24 hours after the end of the concert.
  5. In fact I changed my mind following your reactions on April 20th but I did not express it immediately because it was late in France at that time. Then on Wednesday I took some time to study the subject with you. In my post on Wednesday when I talk about "Love Joy Chase" between 0:22 and 1:24, I talk about the video [TITANIC] - "The Lucky Ticket" (Complete Score / Film Version) posted by RadioKidCharlemagne. And I say that this is not what we hear in the film. That's why I contacted the two musicians, I'm looking with you for the source of this musical passage missing from the 4CD edition. The confusion for the last 3 days is probably due to my English which is not perfect? For the moment I have no reason to change the content of the book where the people who worked on the project say that the track heard in the film was recorded in September 1997. To this day this remains for me the most plausible version of the story. (A little off topic, I wanted the book to be above all an "oral history" where there are a lot of quotes.)
  6. Just to remind you that the concert is in one week. I copy and paste the text I just published on social networks: After more than four years of development and preparations, we are now less than one week away from the first downbeat of the concert "James Horner - The Emotionalist". May 13th 2022 will undoubtedly be a night to remember. To experience this unique and unforgettable event, you have two options: - Buy one of the last 30 tickets still available and join us in the beautiful hall of the Szczecin Philharmonic. - Watch the live-stream of the concert, on the orchestra's YouTube-channel, next Friday at 7pm (UTC+2) Central European time, 6 pm London time, 1 pm on the American East Coast, and 10 am on the West Coast.

  7. @StRuPiE Yes, you are absolutely right about "Lovejoy Chase". I made a mistake in my April 20th post about this track. As soon as I get Eric's answer I will share it.
  8. Yes, absolutely! Eric hasn't answered me yet. I got a reply from the percussionist. In his message he explains that it is indeed him that we hear in the clip "Luckiest in the World". He plays Irish Bodhrán and Irish Musical Bones.
  9. For the book I was in contact with 2 of the 3 musicians present at the Irish music session. So I just sent them a message asking them to listen to the film clip to try to confirm (or not) if it is them playing.
  10. Unless I'm mistaken, the video posted above called "Lucky Ticket" is a montage made from the track "Love Joy Chase" between 0:22 and 1:24. And this is not indeed what is heard in the movie. I found the email exchanged with the music editors concerning this part of the film. They clearly explain that the Irish music for the two scenes was recorded in September 1997. I would not feel comfortable asking them for any further explanation on this subject. I simply think that what we hear in the film when Jack is running on the dock is a take of the September 1997 session that does not appear in the 4CD edition.
  11. The percussion rhythm is very slow in the track "Jumanji Drums". The same rhythm as at the end of the "End Titles". In the movie there are several rhythms. And there are also several layers of percussion as the kids get closer to the game hidden in the attic. Not all of these variations are in the album. Tarkis wrote that "Jumanji Drums" can be heard in the movie during the prologue. Douglass Fake wrote that the drums recorded by Horner could be looped at different lengths, depending on the specific needs of the film.
  12. Thank you @Jay for your message. It makes me happy! I did what I could because I had very little time between writing the book and family life... A little off topic: During my research for the book, I discovered that The Spitfire Grill was recorded in December 1995 so depending on how you look at it, this score could be part of the 1995 vintage. And James Horner's collaborators have very clear memories of Jade. The LLL edition seems to correspond to the music as it appears in the film and not to the recording sessions.
  13. Yes, that's right. The two versions are similar but the takes used are different.
  14. My review: http://jameshorner-filmmusic.com/jumanji-expanded-edition-our-exclusive-review/
  15. Thank you @Bayesian for your beautiful message. I have good news: Source: http://www.intrada.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=8899
  16. You can ask me all the questions you want. Even though we are getting away from the subject which is the 4CD edition. All the scores are covered in the book. The somewhat crazy goal is to get all the information into one item. The chapter on Titanic is about 26,000 words. The section on The Perfect Storm is 6,500 words.
  17. @Jay Thanks for the links about the book. I can write again to the two music editors if you think this version is not the right one. @bollemanneke Thank you for your interest in the book. It is the culmination of ten years of research and four years of writing. The source material comprises 400 referenced sources, including 70 exclusive interviews with directors, producers, and musicians, as well as 30 hours of recorded interviews with James Horner’s family and close associates. I can't remember if I shared this here. Sorry for the duplication if I did: Here is an overview of the chapter on Titanic that will be in the book. The first three lines (39 pages) tell about the creation of the score, month after month. All this work was possible thanks to James Horner's collaborators who shared their memories for dozens of hours. For example, in this chapter there are exclusive recollections from Jim Henrikson, Joe E. Rand, Simon Franglen, Sissel, Eric Rigler, James Thatcher, Sara Horner, Ian Underwood. I'm sure I'm forgetting others. There are of course quotes from James Horner, James Cameron, Celine Dion from the already known interviews. The fourth line at the bottom is the musical commentary.
  18. @Holko Yes, thank you for correcting me. It's indeed the beginning of "Leaving Port".
  19. Thank you for this information. @Jay But I don't understand because it contradicts what music editors Jim Henrikson and Joe E. Rand said about it for the book. They were present daily for two months at the Skywalker Ranch to finalize the film. For the scene where Jack is running on the dock after the poker game, James Horner had planned the beginning of the track "Southampton Leaving Port". James Cameron wanted something else. "Joe and I had some Irish reel material from Heaven Help Us (1985) and we gave it to Jim for a listen," said Jim Henrikson. "He put it up against film and liked it. Problem being it would not be available to license for Titanic." So a recording session took place on September 22, 1997 with Irish musicians.
  20. In these two scenes, James Cameron used the track "Lovejoy Chases Jack and Rose" recorded in September 1997 at Skywalker Ranch.
  21. Thank you @Jay @LSH@karelm for your messages. I hope you will enjoy the concert.
  22. After the cancellation of the 2020 and 2021 concerts due to the pandemic, the James Horner Film Music Association is pleased to announce that the 2022 concert will take place! Its title: James Horner - The Emotionalist - The Concert It will take place in Szcecin, Poland (2 hours drive from Berlin) on May 13, 2022. On the program: James Horner’s most famous film music but especially the two concert pieces Spectral Shimmers and A Forest Passage which have not been performed since 1979 and 2000 respectively. A moving 20-minute tribute video divided into 3 parts will be shown between the music pieces. It was filmed in Calabasas at the composer’s home with his wife Sara and daughter Emily. Other surprises are also planned. All the information is available by following this link: http://jameshorner-filmmusic.com/may-13th-2022-james-horner-the-emotionalist-the-concert/ For those who can’t make it to the concert, a big surprise awaits you in the article. You are allowed to talk about the surprise in the following posts, it’s just that I wanted 1 or 2 people to go read our article.
  23. The closest collaborators interviewed for the book confirmed this. I have over 150 interviews with Horner organized by keyword so it is easy for me to find the information for you: https://www.classicfm.com/composers/horner/news/lord-of-the-rings/ https://audioboom.com/posts/3307396-james-horner-my-lord-of-the-rings-soundtrack-would-have-been-quite-different
  24. I am sorry for the approximations in my review. I only had 48 hours to write it. I left the first album behind. I mostly listened to Another 48Hrs. which I loved.
