  1. After the serenity, the insanity (guys, check his recording of David Newman's Sernity too, it's amazing !!)
  2. Yes i'll try my best (it's planned), if it's possible i'll do it. I have a good result here becuase the original material is very good (directly recorded on PBS by a friend of mine with a DVD recorder in 2002/2003, but i'll be unable to have something better in term of audio, i remember there was a sound issue on it, don't know if it's on the whole show or only this tune, unfortunatly someone told it to me only many years later after i posted it (i almost never listened unfortunatly any of the videos or concert i posted, except the ones i recorded or got before may 1995.). So with french horn player Marc Papeghin we tried at best to reduce the sound issue and i resent a new material. i'm not sure i'll be able to do better (in audio) of what it's already available. We'll See, i got new Mastering and audio separating audio track software, so we'll see.
  3. I had the chance to see it live played for the first time at the Oscars, i had goosebumps litterally when i listened to it, it was 4 or 5am.. it was the year where he conducted it , so it's 2002 if my memory is correct (and this concert of the boston pops is from 2002).
  4. I think it's maybe Pope orchestration, but williams arrangement ! that what's written on the signature edition : https://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/tribute-to-the-film-composer-sheet-music/20655021?aff_id=15025
  5. some of my materials are in widescreen but recorded in 4/3 (so no issue with them) but most of them are very old material, and are unfortunatly in 4/3 like this one. I re-edit EACH shot to try to have the best for it, but sometimes, it's not possible to have everybody well cropped so decision must be taken. so, yes it's cropped. i'm not the best at that, even if i spend my life to edit video for my musical channel (maybe some of you know it because I did some john williams cover with french horn player marc papeghin). the issue is the big TV logo on the right low corner, so i just tried my best, i re did some of the titles too when they were lost by the cropping. when i couldn't do better, i blurred the logo (it's a very big one). Next videos to come will be lara fabian singing Evergreen (barbra streisand) conducted by Williams, A.I duet with fabian and groban, E.T adventure on earth. they are all already upscaled, i need to do the color gradding, crop etc.. I would love to do all the 80 videos lol but it will take a long time and some of them are so bad in term of pictures quality that nothing can be improved, i'm working on remastering of the Jurassic park one, but the upscaling is difficult, John williams head look like a baby lol. As well, with the help of marc papeghin, we did an english transcription in Close caption of the two interview williams did with andre previn, and i did a french translation for it. but upscaling need to be done. Youtube unfortunatly removed the ability to ask to the community to do subtitles, but it would have been great that people would take my subtitles and translate them in other langage, like spanish , italian etc.. Edit : about the cropping, 2 difficulties : when there is a fade between two shots, the video must stay with the same crop from the previous and the next picture. when this happen, i can't do nothing about that. other difficultes here, not present elsewhere. the titles of each tunes, which force to crop more or less. Fortunatly i only have one williams medley playing so much tunes lol
  6. Hello There, some of you maybe know my youtube channel martyprod2 where i posted around 80 Tv pro video of john wlliams conducting all kind of stuff, including his own music (or not). Some parts of my collections come from myself, and some from someone very nice from here.. I Just started to remaster each video one by one in Full HD, Widescreen, pictures improved upscaled and cleaned, colors eventually reworked and a bit of new color gradding, and sound normalized (my hearing illness actually forbidd me to do more than that for now). I take this opportunity to post the stuff that i have in my collection and didn't posted yet, like this one, and which is the first one to be remastered. For the videos already posted, for the ones with few comments, i'll erase them and they will be replaced by their remastered version, and for the ones who have lot of comments, i'll let them online and will post the remastered version next to it. I'll post more soon, but it take a long time
  7. oh, so it's not a limited edition ? we can wait a bit ! thanks !
  8. Is the Bluray version with the "Full Concert" a limited edition ? Best is to order now, or we can wait a bit (the release date) ?
  9. In regards of who voted and how, it seems that women don't find our Johnny sexy enough .... ? Come on !! he's the most sexy person on the planet !!
  10. Miguel (who is on this forum and provided me some of the clips i posted from JW on my channel (but not these ones) tell here that it's from 1992. http://www.grandorchestras.com/bostonpops/video/bpops_evening92legrand.html
  11. As promised here are the tunes 2, 3 and 4 of John Williams conducting Michel Legrand and tony bennett on vocals. I tried my best, as I posted this without checking the audio of it (hearing issues) so i hope they are ok. if there is an issue, please let me know. the video is of course not in HD but I uploaded it in HD to force youtube to encode the Audio track in the highest quality possible. As said, Couldn't hear the audio, but I know that on the first song, if my memory is correct, they play one of the tune from the parapluies de cherbourg, so if someone here can tell me and identify the song name from the three videos, thank you !
  12. I have been very lucky to have recorded this video in 1997/1998 i think (not sure) on My VCR. Back then , the onyx german channel was posting some of the boston pops show kind of in "loop" mode, but unfortunatly didn't posted all of them. they did 4 tunes on this concert but the 3 other tunes that i tried to post at the same time have been removed by youtube. certainly because of the third guest, tonny benett. i'll try to repost ithem again, hoping that youtube will not block the videos this time. I studied Jazz piano 24 years ago with one of Legrand's session Pianist. It was for the movie "3 places pour le 26". it was featuring actress Mathilda may some years after she did "Lifeforce". It was a musical, from Jacques demy, featuring Yves montand as the main actor and of course, Michel to compose the soundtrack. they tried to re-produce the success of the "parapluies de Cherbourg", but it didn't worked at all. A bluray of this movie is available in france. My (ex) teacher (i only had one piano teacher in my life) plays the piano in one of the scene, and was the one who was taking care of all the rehearsal with the dancers and singers for the screen. I know some anecdotes on michel and the production of this movie from my teacher's mouth, but for personnal reason, I'll not share them sorry. i I don't think it must be known the day he passed away. I'll come back here to post the link to the THREE (!!!) other videos once they will be uploaded (and i hope, not blocked).
