  1. Wow!! Very much hope I'll be able to see the maestro live for a second time. Tickets will surely be much harder to get this time, since he's only doing one concert rather than three. But I should be able to get something. And "Price Range - $79-$229" suggests that despite this being "Corporate Night," prices probably won't be too much higher than usual.
  2. Wow this arrangement sounds beautiful... It's basically an update of JW's already terrific arrangement of Marion's Theme from the past decade.
  3. Good news!! This concert will have a live radio broadcast: Looking forward to hearing a second recording of this great piece.
  4. Gorgeous performance of Over the Rainbow. A great arrangement by Randy Kerber that I'd never heard before, performed beautifully by ASM and the orchestra under the direction of the maestro. Someone needs to remind JW how to properly wear his mask, though!
  5. So seems like JW only appears for the final piece?
  6. Great quotes from JW. I wonder if he realizes his Today show music is no longer used by NBC (as far as I can tell), and his Sunday Night Football theme has been massively re-arranged, in a similar manner to how Star Wars trailers adapted JW's themes. (Realistically, JW probably doesn't care that much about these things, if he is even aware of them. But he might justifiably be at least a tad annoyed.) For reference, this was JW's original Sunday Night Football cue (used only for 2 or 3 years after its composition in 2005 or 2006):
  7. Does anyone remember any of the interviews where JW has discussed his daily work schedule? Just curious. I remember this interview from 2019: https://www.jwfan.com/?p=12355 But I feel like there were other articles where he talked about how he likes to schedule his work, when he goes for walks to clear his mind, how he works in solitude for much of the day, etc. I remember being very fascinated by his work flow (which is obviously very different from how most ordinary professionals in other industries work).
  8. I'll likely be in NYC at the time, but yikes, the prices are high and the seat selection at this point is pretty bad: https://www.carnegiehall.org/calendar/2022/04/21/across-the-stars-the-music-of-john-williams-0700pm I guess that's what happens when it's a one-night-only concert. I do hope to see JW perform live for a second time (I saw him in Chicago in 2018), but I'll probably have to pass on this one.
  9. The more I've listened to it, the more I've loved the ending to this piece (the final 30 seconds or so). Such exciting energy.
  10. @Schilkeman @Fabulin I definitely share your views on The BFG. Here's what I wrote back in 2016: (Unfortunately, the YouTube embeds no longer work.)
  11. This great segment of Rounds (18:36-19:45)... Reminds me a bit of this equally great passage from "Dream County" in The BFG (7:08-7:53)... Always cool to spot little connections between JW's concert and film work!
