  1. Oh, I missed the opening ovation, didn't see myself throughout the whole broadcast, but who cares, as long as we got the best versions of the performances The performances of Luke and Leia and Imperial March were incredible, best versions I've ever heard.
  2. That was fun! Too bad those tracks didn't make it, but understandably. Can't wait for the official release with high quality. Looks like the whole concert on today's broadcast was from Sunday.
  3. Enjoy the concert, everyone! Just Sunday footage so far, interesting, looks about half of the concert was cut for this broadcast so far.
  4. It took me 30 minutes of frantic refreshing 3 different browsers to get the two tickets, but once they rebooted the server, I had 40 seconds (ticket reservation time of 15 minutes) to enter my bank details and confirm the purchase, with 5 seconds left in the end...And this was in the members presale.
  5. They used close mics for basses as well, the Teldex mics - saw it up close when I checked them out.
  6. Slovenec! Pozdravljen Cool that you know Iztok! Perhaps we'll meet next time then
  7. Can you try again? Should work fine in VLC, I used Quicktime on macOS to capture it.
  8. Aaaand it's gone lol...Good thing I screen captured it John_Williams_and_Vienna_Philharmonic_Orchestra_-_The_Imperial_March_(excerpt).mov
  9. Yeah, my friends wrote that, I gave them the info about the brass section wanting to play The Imperial March, so that info came from here
  10. Dude, me and a girl were having the cake at the Sacher Cafe 2 hours before the concert, and I kid you not, she looks outside and say "is it snowing?" and surely enough, it was. If that's not magic, I don't know what is. The Universe came together this weekend.
  11. She has SEVERAL?? Edit: just checked, she has two...out of 240 or so accounted for..wow
  12. I'm in the same space. This weird state where I listened to the first two pieces of the concert on my headphones, and I immediately went "no no no, that's not what that's supposed to sound like...the sound is wrong and the dynamics are lacking". So strange, and I agree with you, the whole thing was a dream.
  13. Do NOT make me nervous, I live there and would go camping outside to meet him. He should just move over here if you ask me.
  14. I might have seen you, oh well. Yeah, I can't listen to any music right now just yet, maybe later today and definitely back at it tomorrow - had to let the sound of the concert live in my ears and in my head a little bit longer. We just don't get this kind of multidimensional music experiences nowadays - no amplification, that orchestra, that music with that conductor, just doesn't exist. And it's to be treasured for lifetime.
  15. Where were your seats, Martin? I was 6th row (altogether) on the left side, 6 meters away from him
  16. It is true that most of the important historical / musical places are public, so yeah...But he could have rested at the hotel for a day or so, at least.
  17. Georg Lucat Seriously though, after an incredible concert on Saturday, and just half a day later another one, he flies out of the country a few hours after? That seems way too rushed, hope he'll be fine.
  18. I'm still in shock. Recovering from what feels like a dream (not even listening to any music still), but what I can say is that a big thing about this concert was hearing what one of the best orchestras is able to do under John’s own guidance. Playing without amplification, with music going from players straight to you, gives it the maximum range of dynamics, emotional opportunities and the immense delivery of power. John’s music is incredibly dynamic, so an orchestra like Vienna Philharmonic emphasises this, under his direction, to deliver nuances ranging from gentlest tones to projection of
