    I can not afford it.  They should have released each movie separately.

    Can't wait for this! Random preference question: when importing a collection like this (or THE JOHN WILLIAMS JURASSIC PARK COLLECTION) into iTunes/an equivalent digital music library, do you guys treat it as one album with the overall cover art for all tracks, or do you split it up by scores so that each score is its own individual album with its own art? Was just curious how other users here handle a release such as this one, especially since each soundtrack does have its own art (and in high quality too!), if one did want to treat it as a series of separate releases. I'm a bit torn as to what I'd do.

    No, one movie, one album! That's the golden rule. As to album art, I'm flexible. In the case of JP, I really loved the new art, so I used that for both. Which is okay, because it says Jurassic Park Collection, meaning both movies! 
     
    If it's a two disc album of a single movie, however, I treat it as one CD on my music player. Like this:

    I'm also just gonna put this out there...I also vastly prefer the way the recording itself sounds over TLJ and especially TFA (even though ironically, I think TFA is Williams' strongest Star Wars work of the 2010s). It's of course a matter of personal taste, but for me, this is exactly why I wish the sequel scores could have been recorded with the LSO, even if it meant someone like Bill Ross conducting rather than Williams himself.

    I was never a big fan of Across the Stars, but I love the new arrangement. It makes it sound like a theme expressly written for violin and orchestra, one of Williams' finest of this century.

    When I heard that they were supposedly seriously considering replacement dates, the comment also included that it wouldn't happen before autumn 2019. So it seems that the Ep9 schedule was already factored in.
     
    Of course, with our luck, Abrams will require extensive last minute rescoring and Williams will have to cancel at the last minute...
     
     
    If his illness really wasn't travel related, and if Vienna is indeed a bucket list item, I'd say chances actually don't look so bad.

    While I like the main theme - I am not thrilled by the fact that it is presented in such a simple demo like manner - almost a midi.
     
     
    The piano version should have had more ambition. A piano solo shouldn't be scored for Youtuber Difficulty level 1 players. It should feel like an actual piece in itself that could be played in a concert. This arrangement is so simply and unchallenging that is not likely to be featured on its own in any concert.
     
    The part at 1:01 should have been how the piece started and it should have built up with even more complex counterpoint as it went on to be more musically interesting.
     
    Take for example the first 2 minutes of Williams Sabrina theme. It is very interesting musically on its own and is most definitely not a throwaway demo but an actual piece that a pianist might play.

    This chap on Classic FM is irritating me.  Not only did he refer to the items on the programme as "songs" but he reckoned the second half would "build to a crescendo".  Grr!

    I think JW takes these commitments seriously.  As long as his health improves. I'm confident he'll reschedule.
