  1. At least this new Matrix film has inspired a USA orchestra to book 'The Matrix' L2P concert for July '22. The last USA booking was over 8 years ago.
  2. A 'Variety' article from Jon Burlingame talks about the 'Black Panther' L2P concert this weekend at the Hollywood Bowl. 'Black Panther' Score to Be Performed at Hollywood Bowl - Varietyhttps://variety.com/2021/artisans/news/black-panther-score-hollywood-bowl-1235057552/ Here are the highlights: I hear that the Hollywood Bowl does their rehearsals of their concerts for the public for free. I wonder if one could get in on the rehearsals for that concert.
  3. Are you talking about excerpts from the score or the entire score? Are you putting on a 'film-with-live-orchestra' concert? When you have recovered from this forum's royal welcome, can you tell us about the event?

  5. Not necessarily. Mondo could use the 1978 WB Records album master and keep the production cost low. If they use the LLL master, they would have to pay an extra licensing fee to LLL for the use.
  6. ...and got smart by passing on this. MV said this: https://www.filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?forumID=1&pageID=2&threadID=143595&archive=0
  7. Thanks for reporting that, @Omen II. Wondering if any orchestra in the world can still put 'Superman' on after January, or do they have to wait until after June when the RAH is finished with it? Here in the USA and Canada, there are still a few orchestras that haven't posted their new year's schedule of concerts so I'm wondering if these orchestras will put 'Superman' on during the later Winter/early Spring '22?
  8. KKL Luzern, Switzerland Citi Light Symphony Orchestra, Anthony Gabriele, conductor New Date: Friday, January 28, 2022 https://www.citylightconcerts.ch/event/superman-in-concert-kklluzern/ The description reads that it will be the 'world premiere', so the RAH will have to schedule this after January 28th.
  9. That quote references the TT Blu Ray. Does the Arrow UK Blu Ray retain the isolated music track where you hear the slate announcements, and JW's comments before each music cue?
  10. I think you mean the June 2019 screening of a 1981 UK 70mm print presented by AMPAS. Star Wars and Rogue One | Oscars.org | Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences After the screening, there was a seminar that featured the crew of Star Wars--including Marcia Lucas, John Dykstra, Richard Edlund, et. al. According to Dykstra at that seminar, the Academy took significant effort to get Lucas to sign-off on the showing. Yes, very exceptional.
  11. Although there are threads on this forum devoted to individual recordings of this piece and one thread devoted to a specific live performance of this piece… https://www.jwfan.com/forums/index.php?/topic/13616-tuba-concerto-performance-sept-27-usc/&tab=comments#comment-362501 …I thought I would start a thread devoted to current and future bookings of this piece. Here’s one to start you off: Fort Wayne Philharmonic Orchestra Andrew Constantine, conductor Chance Trottman-Huiet, tuba February 19, 2022, 7:30pm https://fwphil.org/events/john-williams-and-dvorak
  12. We already know that Lucasfilm is working hard in preventing anyone from even screening 35mm prints of the Star Wars theatrical cuts. A non-for-profit organization in Stockton, CA, The Friends of the Fox Theater, was to screen the original ‘Star Wars’ 1977 cut in July 2019, but when word got around about it, Lucasfilm gave that organization a C&D notice. So, they ended-up screening the 2011 cut.
  13. Those who can't wait, these events are happening in September: https://www.hollywoodbowl.com/events/performances/1255/2021-09-10/black-panther-in-concert https://manncenter.org/events/2021-09-25/black-panther-concert
  14. The opening credits of the DE using the album version of 'Main Title' -where two strikes of the timpani begins the cue instead of two strikes on the snare drum from the theatrical cut--was a foreshadow of those worst things mentioned. Read discussion of the Main Title alternate takes
  15. The San Fran Symphony is also repeating BTTF. They did this in July 2015. This makes me even more pissed that they are overlooking 'Superman'.
  16. 'The Matrix - Live' The San Francisco Symphony Orchestra is doing this again. July 1st and 2nd, 2022 at Davies Symphony Hall, San Francisco, CA. https://www.sfsymphony.org/Buy-Tickets/2021-22/THE-MATRIX They did this in July 2013. Here's a boat load of YouTube videos of that performance: Now I won't have to go to the UK to catch this, if the RAH decides to rebook it. Yet again, a lot can happen in one year. The 'Against-Gun-Violence' protesters can force the San Fran Symphony to remove the program from the schedule.
  17. There's no name of a choir group with either the Atlanta Symphony or Minnesota orchestras, so I guess there isn't going to be a live choir. along with the orchestra If a 'choir' sound is used with this concert, it would be pre-recorded.
  18. SPOTLIGHT ON JOHN BARRY» – START RECORDING PROJECT #3! Less than two weeks have passed since the City Light Symphony Orchestra, together with conductor Kevin Griffiths, completed the recording of the second album and already today the 90 musicians are launching the third CD project, this time conducted by Anthony Gabriele: «Spotlight on John Barry». Here are a few impressions of the first tutti rehearsal in the rehearsal room of the KKL Luzern – starting Monday, it's back to the acoustically brilliant and beautiful concert hall for a whole week! With «Spotlight on John Barry» we follow up on our successful debut album «Spotlight on John Williams» with great delight and by honorable request. The focus is on the outstanding film music work of the British composer and 5-time Academy Award winner John Barry. From «James Bond» to «Dances with Wolves» and «The Lion in Winter» to «Zulu» and «Midnight Cowboy» – a lot of work lies ahead of us. Our colleagues from Bauer Studios, the record label Prospero Classical and the creative agency K-wer-K will join us too. Let's go! https://www.facebook.com/CityLightConcerts/posts/1120530751770448 Here's a few recording session videos Zulu https://fb.watch/6lGrfIV3jI/ Body Heat https://fb.watch/6lGw5j93vf/ Dances With Wolves https://fb.watch/6lGy477Dcz/ Sadly no 'The Black Hole' https://www.facebook.com/CityLightConcerts/posts/1123412291482294 Incidentally, the orchestra was to premiere the 'Dances With Wolves' L2P concert, but had to cancel because of COVID.

  19. It's spreading: https://minnesotaorchestra.org/tickets/calendar/eventdetail/1821/-/black-panther-with-the-minnesota-orchestra Are these American orchestras aware that there's an L2P concert of Superman.

  21. It’s too bad that Phillippe Sarde's score for ‘Quest for Fire’, aka ‘Le Guerre de Feu’ is not among the scores listed in these polls. Although the release date for that film was 1981, the film would reach American movie houses in February 1982 and worldwide, later. The soundtrack album release in the USA was by RCA Records. I would image more listeners here would have gotten the impact of this score in '82. I didn't get around to listening to this score until 1991.
  22. San Diego Symphony Orchestra. John Beal, conductor. Copley Symphony Hall, San Diego, CA September 4th, 2021. 7:30pm https://purchasing.sandiegosymphony.org/8135/8136
  23. The TSO has just announced their 2021/22 schedule and SW:TLJ is not on it, as it was last scheduled for March 2022.
  24. Thanks @rough cutfor the news. Looks like it's back to the Swiss for the 'world premiere'.
  25. Another reason why I’m wondering whether the RAH may consider canceling this concert is because there’s still plenty of seats left to sell for this show. This is a screenshot I made this morning. As you can see, there’s still some orchestra seats left and plenty of tier seats available. I was thinking that tickets holders for ‘Supes – In Concert’ from KKL-Luzern, Switzerland would come down to the UK and fill those seats up, since their show was cancelled, but it would be a hassle for them, despite the one-hour-plus train ride. According to Gov.uk... https://www.gov.uk/guidance/red-amber-and-green-list-rules-for-entering-england …they would have to make a 10-day quarantine stay. Wasting money on a trip to another country all to spend 10 days indoors for a one-night event doesn’t sound attractive. If the RAH were to do the show as scheduled, they may not make the money back from the cost of putting on this concert. In America, amphitheater venues, held outdoors, aren’t booking L2P concerts this summer because they still need to provide social-distancing for the audience. Less audience equals less money. Because of the cost that these venues have to pay for these L2P rentals… …the venues won’t make back the cost of producing them as a result of less attendance. I think that is the main reason why the RAH would postpone this concert and not because Film Concerts Live (FCL) will make them do it, so that the KKL-Luzern will keep their ‘world premiere’ credit.
