  1. The reception was phenomenal. It was quite interesting as a musician to perform while the audience reacts to the on screen action. A lot of fun. The screen was above and behind the orchestra, and only used on the 2nd rehearsal. It’s a well oiled machine for sure. Everything went super smoothly. the film and music tracks were both mixed and sent through speakers. From what I’ve heard, it seemed it was well balanced and the sound quality was good. It was in a big hockey arena. Overall it was a lot of fun, the conductor was great, he was very precise and knew the score incredibly well. I would have liked just one more rehearsal....playing Quidditch only once through before the performance was a little nerve wracking... Hopefully we get to do more in the future.
  2. As an orchestra musician, I absolutely can’t imagine playing some of the transitions that those edits have created. Some of them make no musical sense at all. I don’t think we’ll ever see those performed live.
  3. For people in eastern Canada or US. I’m looking forward to performing it.
  4. Love Sibelius 2. Performing it in October. Definitely some voicing and harmony resemblances between Williams and Sibelius. There are most certainly worst composers to be influenced by out there.
  5. Haha. I guess I should have read your post first...I posted a photo and video in the original thread. In any case. A very nice end to a great evening.
  6. I was at Tanglewood yesterday to see SW LTP. We had a nice surprise encore... Grounds are nice. 20190816_223722.mp4
  7. Believe or not, we only have 1 rehearsal on the 14th, dress rehearsal and concert on the 15th...possible repeat on the 16. Going to be intense.
  8. Do any of you know if the Signature editions for solo instruments, like Malice towards none for trumpet and piano and The Days between for oboe and piano are actually done by Williams himself? Just wondering if JW is actually doing the piano parts.
  9. I'm not sure. But it must be a combination of rights, equipment, technicians, etc...big productions. We're playing HP1 in November with my orchestra, I'm curious to experience this type of project from "under" the screen.
  10. I guess that’s where his jazz background comes into play.
  11. Adventures of Han. Fantastic piece. I also really like what Powell did with it.
  12. Good advice. Ordered this morning. I wonder how many were left.
  13. I’m not familiar with the LSO version. My guess would that it’s the exact same JW has performed last year, which I guess would be the same one the LSO played. Especially that JW was supposed to conduct that concert.
  14. It’s 5 minutes long. Which I think pretty much matches JW’s version with BPO last May.
  15. Adventures of Han and the new Han and Leia now available at Sheetmusicplus. Just ordered my copies https://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/the-adventures-of-han-sheet-music/21189250 https://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/han-solo-and-the-princess-sheet-music/21189246
  16. My friend found this at a thrift store. Anybody has some background story on it?
