    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.

    They didn't have more broadcasting time I guess. I'm glad something was missing so I can look foreward to the blue ray release.

    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.

    Just Sunday footage so far, interesting, looks about half of the concert was cut for this broadcast so far.

    Fresh look at a short clip from Devil's Dance, as well as what looks like a new edit of the Imperial March, for some reason. Nice to see it's been done in 60fps. Note the dude conducting along at 0:40". Must have been off-putting for ASM to have that in her eye-line if she noticed him, but he is doing a good job of keeping time.

    Williams' concert on Blu-ray was probably the biggest musical dream of my life. Of course, there is an excellent "Celebration" Blu-ray from 2015, but conducted by Dudamel (except for the encore). And here ... Williams conducts one of the best orchestras in the world, in one of the most renowned places, and I saw it live - twice! That's why it doesn't matter to me that some important compositions are missing, especially since the the concert is still very long. I'm also surprised by complaints about the presence of Anne-Sophie Mutter, who has become one of Williams' most active popularizers in the still conservative classical world. As for the allegations that Maestro is now weaker conductor than he once was... Well, I completely disagree.

    What a long journey from that moment:
    to that:
     
    40 years of hard work to the first one, and another 40 years of hard work to the second one.

    It'll haunt me forever that I didn't get to attend this concert, that's probably the best rendition of the Imperial March I've seen. How lucky are we to have this amazing concert in such glorious audio and video quality?
     
    Love the moment with Williams at 1:37 where he can't hold back the smile any longer. He must have been thrilled with their playing.

    Ah, so most of the tracks are the regular orchestral versions then?
    Too bad.
    I was quite curious to hear a Mutter Imperial March.

    This means the 6 additional tracks on the Bluray will be Mutter's performances:
    Hedwigs Theme,
    Theme from Sabrina,
    Donnybrook Fair,
    Theme from Cinderella Liberty,
    The Duel,
    Remembrances.

    While I loved the concert I attended I must admit it pains me a bit to see Williams – despite the tremendous energy for his age – conducting in the clip above. He already can’t keep his tempo at the opening bars of Hook and that’s why the horns are late. No wonder the concert master looked stressed like hell. I hope they can stitch together a polished product from the two concerts.

    The Star Wars main title is definitely from Sunday - I can see myself there.  So both days footage. Cool!

    Anyway, we were extremely, I mean EXTREMELY lucky that this concert happened, Corona was already an Issue in China back then and if it break out sooner, this would be cancelled again. Oof.

    They tried for years, apparently. When Williams wasn't interested, they helped establish the Philharmoniker connection instead. And we should be thankful for that, because we got two excellent concerts with great acoustics and a solid programme instead of an bombastic light show with amplified sound and butchered medleys.
