  1. I miss Maestro Goldsmith very much , he was such a truly gentleman, very easy going despite he was a shy person, I have been visiting the Hillside Cimetery in Culver City, 3 years ago...

    I got the famous 3 CDs StarTrek : The Motion Picture, I wish some day we can have an official release of this music ( 3CDs !!! ) with his OUTLAND complete score .

  2. I doubt it...Previn is known genereally as a conductor. He does not seem to have any great acclaim for his concert work.

    The kind of carrer that Mr Previn have, is he has started as film composer and he is now a big name in the world of classical concerts.This is what Jerry Goldsmith pointed over Williams ( who tend to find a legitimacy with a more "classical" public ), and believe he was right .

    Personnaly in the world of the both sides of films/concerts composers I like William Walton and Ralph Vaughan Williams .

    I believe Williams will only be remembered as to be the composer of StarWars by most of the (lambda) public, as Herrmann is remembered by same public for his Psycho score and Morricone for his Once upon time in west...

  3. Horner dated Jerry's daughter.

    May this be the cause of that (supposed) hatred?

    Its is something more insidious, well , Horner dated Jerry Goldsmith daughter, Goldsmith was close relationship with Horner, inviting him at scoring sessions and so on...Then was an Horner interview that was reported to Goldsmith, something not really nice regarding their relationship was spoken, that broke something between Goldsmith regarding Horner...

    In one preview of the now never-to-be-released Goldsmith biography, Goldsmith was critical of Williams's public persona.

    Seems like maybe Goldsmith was a bit envious of JW... which is completely understandable, IMHO.

    Definitively NO ! Goldsmith pointed that Williams wanted to have a carreer " à la Previn " , to be recognized as film composer and as "concert " (classical) composer.

    and that was bad?

    Seems like maybe Williams was, at earlier time, bit envious of Previn and wanted follow this kind of career...

  5. Wasn't it rumored that Williams was approached to write Pluto?

    I didn't know that, but it's likley, I think. However, the "official" Pluto movement was written in 2000 by British composer Colin Matthews.

    Which was stupid, as Pluto is not a planet ...There is only few recordings of this "thing", a lot of conductors decline to include it in a concert or recording...
