  1. I am sad ... I seen recently the youtube link he seems to be a real gentleman . Repose en paix , Alexandre...
  2. I had the chance to met him few years ago , he was visiting the museum I worked , we shake hands , I talked about Sabrina and its score , he said "John Williams is very professional " RIP
  3. I give a C... Who is responsible of such a mess ? Why any Lucas productions there is a re-use of earlier score ? Why should we have "the map room down" again ? Why there is a track from "A.I." ? Why there is a note for note "War of the worlds" ? Why there is "Flight from Peru" ? Why there is motifs from "Hook" ? Why "grave robbers" sounds like a disguised "riding the lizard"? Why since "jurassic park" all the action cues sounds the same, with its flutes/xylophone punctuations ??? Is it so far the time of Raiders of the Lost Ark ? ... I haven't disliked the film , is it clear that the film s
  4. In "Pops à la Russe " he conducted the "night on a bare montain " it was everythings but spectacular... Also he had performed THE PLANETS with Pitsburg orchestra and has an 30 minutes standing ovation !!!
  5. Actually Waltz of the Flowers exist in a PHILIPS recording with peter and the wolf
  6. I seen him at 3 concerts in Boston, but althought he have conducted some classical pieces from composers such as Elgar and Tchaikovsky, I always wanted to know how he conduct "La Mer" or "The Rite of Spring "...
  7. No The Fury is based on William Walton's Presto Capriccioso. And ...First Violin concerto of Alan Rawsthorne ...
  8. I like this score since I seen the film on 87 , I was 21 then ... I bought the BBox only to have at least the best recording of S:TM and S:QOP ... Since I know that the luna fight in S2 belongs to Superman the Movie - track" the doom opens alternate ", I really not keep attention, sorry, to the Thorne efforts ... I still( ..) hope for a release of a Superman the Movie 3 hours re-cut , with the hope of Williams will be asked to do new score on the metropolis battle and other key moments ...
  9. here is the link http://www.naxos.com/catalogue/item.asp?item_code=8.570968#
  10. The legend that Morricone doesn't use an orchestrator is over... I heard someone saying that sometimes he use Ralph Ferraro, the same orchestrator of the late Rosenman...
  11. The problem with what some call a mediocre score is that jerry was asked to do almost the same style for this kind of film : AIR FORCE ONE, EXECUTIVE DECISION, U.S MARSHALS...I was surprised to find the theme of U.S M in "Inssurection"...
  12. About orchestrations , You remember the famous words by Andre Previn : " a guy gave a few stave sketch to an orchestrator , who came back few minutes after, once the music was performed by orchestra, the composer said : Do have I composed this ???" So... In some case orchestrator are more than copists , Personnaly since Herbert Spencer passed away, John Williams isn't the same ...Another example Cocoon sounds Williams , 2010 sounds Williams , Return to OZ sounds Williams in both case Herbert Spencer did orchestrate the scores...
  13. I listened the score a lot !!! In the Statue of libert(ies) fight from 1:06 to 1:16 You have a progression of Brass Chord that remember me Jerry a lot !!!
  14. VIENNA SPECIAL EDITION & strings + Halion 3 FM8 hosted by Cubase 4 in a PC XP 64 bits and 8 giga of RAM CARD RME 9632
  15. The first film was supervaliumman, so, I have nothing to hope with this one , or yes, I have to hope that this team will never touch again the Superman myth... They had someone writing a seven parts development films about the subject ( Alex Ford ) , they just reprise the title , pffffff...
  16. If You don't already know in Hollywood there is a point : To Eat or Not to Eat , so, You are hired to do a score , You score it , doing Your best, if you don't someone replace You, and take a chance to be hired more often than You , it is a crab's basket...
  17. I am sorry but in my opinion I don't think that is a good score, too much quotes of Walton's " THE QUEST ", Ravel " Daphnis and Chloe" Prokofiev's "Alexander Nevsky" ,I was as much surprised than when I listen to Horner's scores ....
  18. Your are mistaken the guy , you talk about Larry Rosenthal, not Lenny Rosenman... it is the second time in this tread , a sign ? I don't wish so...
  19. He was the third on the composers triumvirat I like... I wish , at least , his passing will help to have more CDs, like Crosscreek, Countdown, Prophecy ... Rest in peace Leonard.
