  1. April 18, 2020 Bunkamura Orchard Hall. Tokyo, Japan https://avex.jp/classics/aliens-live2020/ Edit: Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra. Pierre O'Reilly, conductor
  2. For those of us who go to LTP concerts in New York City's David Geffen Hall: This may affect how LTP concerts are scheduled during the renovation times--like how many to include in a season, what titles to select.
  3. Mike M. said on the FSM forum that the 'Love Theme from Superman' cue will not be played at the LTP concert. https://filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=124036&forumID=1&archive=0&pageID=11&r=227#bottom Apparently, someone at the forum mentioned my suggestion for the LTP concert of putting a dedication clip in the end credits (see the 8:07 mark) to restore the 'love theme' cue to the unaltered length... ..., and Mike M. said this:
  4. I'm not in the concert business. I've been going to LTP concerts, within the USA, for over a year. I'm upset about why no USA orchestras has made any bookings of LTP concerts from Aliens or Independence Day, despite my pleas to the development department of these orchestras in the form of e-mails. So, this led to my curiosity about the inner working of the business. I might be making this rant too soon, as USA orchestras will start announcing their 2020/21-season schedules in mid-January. I have worked in book selling for a publishing company and we've given discounts to bookstores when they buy in bulk. Even as casual consumers, we've learned that when you buy an item in bulk--like toilet paper or canned goods--the price for one item is less. My thinking is that if, say, DisneyConcerts offers an orchestra/venue a discount for booking multiple programs from their roster, this would be an incentive to book SW:TLJ. Where I am, in the USA, not many orchestras are doing SW:TFA, let along have booked SW:TLJ (again, USA orchestras start announcing their new season schedules early next year). These orchestras have either played or will play SW:TFA: New York Philharmonic (2017) National Symphony Orchestra of Washington, DC (2019) New Jersey Symphony (this April) Indianapolis Symphony (this July) So, the remaining orchestras in the USA can book SW:TFA and SW:TLJ, and if they have to book a few more programs to get the discount they can select some family-oriented stuff like The Little Mermaid, Coco, or Beauty and the Beast. If the orchestra/venues are smart, they'll hold-out until DisneyConcerts may announce SW:TROS or, at least, one Indy Jones concert in a few years. Now all this is just a theory, as I'm not a promoter. I guess this is just a long-winded way of saying, "...not in the business, just curious."
  5. Great, @PoggoAOTS. In that case, I have a few questions. 1. Would you know if concert production companies like Film Concerts Live or DisneyConcerts give discounts to orchestras/venues if they book multiple programs from their roster? 2. If so, what would be the minimum amount to get the discount?
  6. At this moment, the only good I can see that could come out of having another Star Trek movie out in theatres is that, maybe, the concert halls will start bringing back the Star Trek LTP concerts. I've missed out of those when I started going to these LTP concerts in April of 2018.
  7. It returns to Canada. Place des Artes, Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier, Quebec, Montreal March 6, 2020 https://placedesarts.com/en/event/casino-royale-concert
  8. Conductor Nicholas Buc is interviewed in the 007 fan page, James Bond Down Under... https://www.jamesbonddownunder.com/single-post/2019/11/22/The-Man-with-the-Golden-Baton ...ahead of this weekend Skyfall LTP concert this week by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra
  9. I attended the live-to-projection concert of "Psycho" by the New York Philharmonic and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. At both concerts, over the footage where the idenity of 'mother' is revealed at the cellar, there was different music instead of the reprisal of the shower-murder music that was used in the final film-edit. The main melody for this alternate music is based on this portion of Herrmann's Sinfonietta for String Orchestra (1936 rev. 1975) at the 16:37 mark... The tempo of this melody is much faster at the concert. I wondering if this music for that scene was what Herrmann originally wrote, but Hitchcock nixed it and replaced it. I checked Steven C. Smith's 1991 biography on Herrmann, "A Heart at Fire's Center," and there's no mention of any other music cues outside of the ones that occur between the opening credits and the shower-murder scene. If Smith, at the time of completing the book, had any evidence that there was an alternate cue for that sequence, the book would have mentioned it because of the irony of it...Hitchcock abandoning a portion of music from the cellar scene and replaces it with music he used in the shower-murder scene--a scene that he didn't want scored in the first place. If any Herrmann experts can chime-in, that would be great.
  10. Hay, @ricsim88, How was the reception for you and the orchestra? About the rehearsal: Was the film projected on stage while you and the musicians are playing? I would think the sync-track version of the film would play on the conductor's monitor, just above his music stand, so that he can get used to working with it. Was the film's sound piped through the speakers as you are rehearing? I know it's too soon to ask, but will the orchestra do any more LTPs in the future?
  11. I wonder if this new cut of ANH will make its way into future LTP concerts?
  12. I'm afraid that it is true. Just before the pathetic shoot-out, there's a close-up of Greedo. https://video.twimg.com/ext_tw_video/1194160383831027713/pu/vid/1280x720/CZaHqCSz0VEPZ4m9.mp4?tag=10
  13. Not to mention: Evil Dead. This past 31/10 https://www.mso.com.au/whats-on/2019/evil-dead-in-concert/ 2001: A Space Odyssey. This coming 25/01 https://www.mso.com.au/whats-on/2020/2001-a-space-odyssey/
