  1. Ford says in this interview - this is a preview of the conversation - that he will start working on the next indiana Jones in two months. I wonder if he meant preparation for the role or actually filming. Anyway, great news!
  2. Indiana Jones 5 maybe? Ford says that he will start working on the next one in two months!
  3. There must be something wrong with me because I think the score is fantastic, it works great in a movie (that I really liked!), and equally well, if not better on the album.
  4. My review I wrote for Onet, one of the two largest Polish web portals. It's in Polish, but you can read it if you like, translated better or worse, using translate.google. Of course, no review will reflect what I really felt at these concerts. I went to Vienna not as a journalist, but as a Williams fan, passionate about his music for about thirty years. I'm glad that I could be at both concerts and I'm sure that nothing will ever beat it. Thank you Maestro! https://kultura.onet.pl/muzyka/wywiady-i-artykuly/koncert-johna-williamsa-relacja/0zp8rm6
  5. Personally, I think these were probably the most important concerts in the history of film music. I really mean it. Why the most important? Because John Williams was conducting the Vienna Philharmonic playing his music in Musikverein. And it was filmed.
  6. I'm sure it will also be a blu-ray, which is a standard medium for Deutsche Grammophon concert releases. They recorded it with nine UHD cameras.
  7. Lao Che, Can you confirm that the concerts will be filmed?
  8. Thank you Martinland! It was my first CD, bought in 1996 - previously I had a few Williams' soundtracks on cassettes As for the meeting, as I use the hospitality of my cousin and his family, I don't plan any meetings after the concerts - it wouldn't be too elegant on my part to leave them like that on Saturday. And on Sunday I'm leaving Vienna very soon after the concert. Although I'm sure JWFan Vienna meeting will be wonderful! I wish you and everyone present the most beautiful concert in your life! Anne-Sophie confirmed in interview two months ago that the concerts will also be filmed. I hope it wasn't her wishful thinking and she knew what she was saying. Yes, I will be his guest artist. That’s so amazing, isn’t it? I mean, this is John Williams’ European debut! Other than in London, he has never conducted in the Old World. Everything will be filmed and recorded, it’s going to be spectacular. .
  9. I had a dream last night in which I saw John Williams in a photo shoot with… Riccardo Muti under the window of my old apartment. I thought that I had to get down quickly, because such an opportunity to meet my idol won’t happen again. I don't remember any more, I just woke up. You can imagine my surprise when I looked here in the morning and saw these pictures. It's a totally surreal situation - in a few days I'll be at two John Williams' concerts, with one of the world's best orchestras performing his compositions. If it's really filmed, it’ll be a souvenir for life. It’s very cool to see Maestro in great form!
  10. Author of this article expresses exactly my thoughts that I had while listening to MEMOIRS OF A GEISHA and SEVEN YEARS IN TIBET. "Those damn Asians!"
  11. I think we should all remember one thing: nomination is also a kind of award. For many filmakres it's the biggest achievement of their entire career. That's why it's no longer said that "the winner is", but "Oscar goes to". And that's why 51, the number of Williams' nominations so far, is so important. I hope it will be 52 next week.
  12. Is mixed very well. But I watched it in IMAX. I don't know yet how it will sound in normal cinemas.
  13. Not necessarily for me. I didn't listen to anything before the screening. In fact, I focused on film as much as on music. This isn't always easy with such intensity of events on the screen.
  14. Bigger than TFA and TLJ, for sure. Similar to PT, but choirs play a slightly different role here, they are more sinister, more ominous Hi RadJ, I don't think so
  15. End Credits, if I remember correctly, consist of:: - traditional fanfare - one of the new epic themes, - Imperial March, - second of the new epic themes, - Rey, - something slower and climatic, also new - new action theme - Rebel Fanfare - traditional ending from New Hope.
  16. So, after the press screening, I can tell you that the score is really, really good, really crushing. This movie really owns it a lot. I haven't heard FYC material, but especailly two new themes are very epic and have a very prominent place in the score. One is majestic, both are super catchy and memorable. An instant classics for me. I have the impression that this is the most aggressive score of the new trilogy, and at the same time the most lyrical and nostalgic. Of course, old themes are back - Force, Vader, Palaptine, Leia, Han Solo and the Pricnes, Yoda, Rey, Resistance. End Credits is a mix of old themes and new ones. I didn't notice Dule of the Fates, but there is a powerful choir that sounds quite similar to it. There are more choirs, at the beginning and especially in the last act of the film. One of them reminded me of Anakin's Betrayal from ROTS. The movie ends, for the fourth time in a row, with Binnary Sunset. In two places, if I remember correctly, Williams almost copied fragments from ROTJ (Darth Vader's death) and ESB (Dagobah). But it sounds spectacular. To sum up, there is a lot going on here. I can't wait to hear it on CD. And of course a few more times at the cinema. Of course, don't take my words for granted. I really like scores from both TFA and TLJ.
  17. So I'm after the press screening. I liked the movie very much, although there will certainly be many who will not be satisfied. As usual. I have to gather my thoughts to write a spoiler free review for my web portal - for now, until tomorrow morning, there is an embargo from Disney. One thing I'll tell you: John Williams has a cameo! He played a bartender by the name, if I remembered correctly from the end credits, Oma Trek. How cool is that? EDIT - Oma Tres
  18. Okay, I'm watching the movie in 9 hours. This is a special moment. The end of the saga, perhaps the last of John Williams' great epic scores. I haven't listened to FYC because I think it's worth being patient. I think I'll write here about my feelings about the music in the movie after the screening.
  19. Agree. 'Sleepers' is even greater, IMHO. But such a program would be suicide
