    I think of it less as an independent story and more as Home Alone 2.0. 
    Like the first one?  Here's a bigger one with more pranks

    Lost in New York a classic?  The score is the only reason I’m glad it was made.

    I saw the trailer, and I have a few things to say. I REALLY hope that John Debney made NO references to the Maestro's work to Home Alone. This film, Home Sweet... I cannot even finish the title. The tag line for this film, "Holiday classics were made to be broken," REALLY speaks volumes. This film cannot break the timelessness of the original classic, of course. Both Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost In New York are genuine Christmas classics. This upcoming film, just from the trailer alone, looks EMBARRASSINGLY AWFUL. I am not giving this film a second-thought. The only thing I am looking forward to regarding this trash are the negative reviews.

    I refuse!  My kids already love the original and I haven't even shown them Lost in New York.  They wanna watch shitty Home Alone sequels, they can do it when they're older and more in control of their own viewing habits.

    They really should make a Home Alone movie for people in their 30s.

    It looks like a beat for beat remake of the first one, slight variations in characterization but whatever.  Clearly it wasn’t made for people my age (nor was the original) and I’m certain we’ll watch it with our kid this year.

    Leipzig is the Bach city. He went there because of Bach.

    Well, the beginning of the third movement sounds totally like the second movement of Beethoven's 9th.

    I never understood why JW always replaces specialty instruments with traditional ones in his signature edition. Say what you will about making it more accessible, but Far and Away needs to open with a penny whistle.

    Just seen that Paddy Maloney, founder of The Chieftans, has passed away. Williams’s inclusion of Far and Away in the programme will ring a little differently now. I do hope he’ll discuss his collaboration with Moloney a little, in tribute to the great musician who elevated a wonderful score.

    Let us not waste our emotions on a bunch of clowns pissing against the wind of history. Less and less will be left of such toxic sediment with each passing decade. Long live bringing joy to millions through music!

    Well, I’m watching the Musikverein concert blu-ray right now and the joy on the faces of Mutter, the orchestra, YOU, and Williams himself is quite something! (Plus one or two other JWFanners I can spot). 
     
    We must all focus on that.
     
    It’s the old Woody Allen “Annie Hall” joke - if there’s a club in which those people reside, I don’t want to be a member.

    Well, the Digital Concert Hall has basically every concert of the BerlinPhil and the other stream is just a local radio broadcast with limited (30 day) availability and probably just lossy mp3 quality right? I don't think anyone in their right mind would miss out on the opportunity to make at least a nice CD and digital release out of this. Especially considering the bestselling Vienna album and the BerlinPhil's own label. I'll be surprised if nothing is released within the next 6 months... I'm pretty optimistic in this regard

    The program brochure has been published as PDF, for the moment available in German only. Looks like this will also be sold as print version at the concerts for 3.50€.

    A few things mentioned in there:  Intermission will be after Jurassic Park Theme. The saturday concert will be published in the Digital Concert Hall (as expected), after the live broadcast (https://www.digitalconcerthall.com).
    It will also be streamed at german radio station "rbbkultur" on the 16th, at 8.03 pm, so can be heard about an hour later than the actual concert on that day. The concert can then be accessed for 30 days through their website (https://www.rbb-online.de/rbbkultur/).
     
    The article about Williams in this program is the one that has been published in their BerlinPhil magazine for some time, as well as on their website. I think this was previously available only in german, but there is now an english version: https://www.berliner-philharmoniker.de/en/stories/john-williams-portrait/
    Additionally, it contains a short summary of each film of the scores played in the concert, and a biography of John Williams and Bruno Delepelaire.
