    Lets hope this gets a good recorded album done- ( I think its being done from the discussions) They have 3 day sessions to choose and edit from. It would be even nicer if Willimas can get a seperate recording done sans audience.
     
    And hopefully everything will be also released as a LIve concert video recording for possible Blu ray release. I really look forward to the live stream on Saturday.

    Some interesting points from a radio interview this evening with Andrea Zietzschmann, General Manager of Berliner Philharmoniker:
    BerlinPhil tried for a few years to get Williams to do a project together in "Waldbühne" stage (https://www.waldbuehne-berlin.de/en/) but it didn't work out because of scheduling conflicts. Says they tried to get him to conduct subscription concerts instead. Is happy to have him, at almost 90 years, conduct BerlinPhil, especially because he hasn't really conducted in Europe before, except Vienna. When asked about the atmosphere in the rehearsals: says it was Williams' wish to conduct the BerlinPhil, that he is very curious and interested about Berlin as it's his first time in the city; Appreciates Williams as great human and artist, many musicians know his filmscores and associate some kind of life experience with his music; that it is a special experience (to have him personally conduct etc.) for all involved. About a potential album release: says they're currently thinking about how to release it (mentions CD, Digital Concert Hall, and the radio broadcast); says they hope that they can release something for a large audience. https://www.rbb-online.de/rbbkultur/radio/programm/schema/sendungen/der_tag/archiv/20211014_1600/kultur_aktuell_1610.html

    So I guess it's pretty much confirmed (at least very likely) that we'll get some kind of audio release. Look at all the microphones in @GlastoEls photos Can't wait for Saturday

    This was absolutely phenomenal. 
     
    @Jurassic Shark I know we were the ones to have some problems with the VPO but you don’t need to worry this was absolutely and totally on another level. I’ve never seen an orchestra play so engaged and so in control of everything that they do.
     
    The inevitable recording of this will be legendary.

    Ha!  At Tanglewood, he didn't remember Roald Dahl's name, and got help from the audience
     
    “Here is something that I wanted to show you and have you hear.  It’s from a film called Big Friendly Giant, which Steven Spielberg made 2 or 3 years ago, which not too many people saw <audience laughter> But it was written by um, oh dear... Charlie and the Chocolate Factory <audience helps him out> Thank you very much - Roald Dahl!  And it’s called Big Friendly Giant.  
     
    And Steven wanted to make this film for technical reasons, because he wanted to present an adult man, the giant, having scenes and playing the entire film with a young girl, 8 or 9 years old, small enough to be held in his hand.  And he would take the little girl to the land of dreams, and find dreams, searches for them - good dreams not bad ones - and capture them and enclose them in bottles.  And then the giant could distribute these to children throughout the world.  And what you’ll see here is a montage put together from this, of all the searching for the dreams, and the orchestra - particularly the flutes - will accompany all this choreography and these gyrations.  And the lighting I think you’ll agree is very beautiful.  I hope you enjoy this.  Big Friendly Giant.”

    Home Alone 2 isn't a classic at all. The score is great, but suffers from the idiotically long finale and lacks reverb. Brenda Fricker is awesome because she's Irish and other than that it's just okay-ish.
