  1. Is this the 100th anniversary of the HB? Or, more directly, will we get Williams's new fanfare at these concerts?
  2. Memoirs of a Geisha Nixon Witches of Eastwick The Patriot How to Steal a Million
  3. Not a top ten, but in the ballpark.
  4. I love when Tintin gets some love.
  5. It is irritating, but without the big donors, there is probably not a BSO/Pops. My biggest gripe is when the people do not actually use their ticket or, worse yet for a Williams's concert, leave early.
  6. That is Carol of the Bells. The whole piece is a fugue between the two melodies of it and Star of Bethlehem.
  7. So you have been nervous in relation to Williams for 20 years?
  8. I don't think this is what Williams means. He says time and again that even at his age, he loves scoring films, especially when they "turn him on," to use his phrase. It is more of a both/and versus either/or.
  9. I find that the piece is very original but it has a continual harshness that repels me, but to each their own. It is a nice piece to throw out to those who claim Williams' music is just warmed over Holst or such nonsense.
  10. I used to be disappointed that his concerti were not like his film music. But as I age, one, I have come to see how little actually separates them, two, the two are complimentary, three, we have hours and hours and hours of his film music--it is not like he is doing all that many fewer films to write concert stuff, four, his concert music is brilliant (well, aside from the flute concerto), and finally, it is not like I have him on retainer to write music for me--he is an artist who should do as he pleases. ps. is there an award around here for run-on sentences?
  11. I would have loved a little snippet of Han's theme in ROS.
  12. Cool interview. Isn't there an ad from many years ago with Williams on Steinway? He speaks of working on the violin concerto for next summer, so the interview must have taken place last spring/early summer.
