  1. I can relate. I am a fan since 1984, and when I saw him in Vienna from the first row walking by to the podium, just 2 meters from me, it was a great moment.
  2. We do not know which aspect Mike is doubting: that it comes in 2021 (may be postponed to 2022), that it will contain the songs etc. It does not mean that NOTHING is in preparation at the moment.
  3. I like this rerecording very much and am glad that it exists. It is not perfect, but it conveys a excellent representation of this soundtrack that is not available otherwise.
  4. Nice to see another Europa-Park Fan! I was already there 3 times this year and it was always great! There is a reason that some people name this theme park the best overall in the world. I am lucky to live only 1.5 hours away from it. IMA Score is not bad, there is also a bit of music from them in the park (Blue Fire, I think), but it somehow always sounds the same and very bloated/bombastic/trailer-like. I am glad that the Park uses Schwarzer for much of the music. Also there are several compositions by Kolja Erdmann in the park (Voletarium, Märchenwald; Kolumbusjolle); here you can here some (I also like it very much):
  5. I liked Ted Lasso, Long way up and Mythic Quest. The latter is really great after a few episodes to get things going.
  6. Due to lots of things going on at work and in life, I literally forgot that the tickets would start selling on Monday. And then they sell out in 5 Minutes? Oh well, then not, I guess. I was in Vienna last year and will cherish the memory.
  7. Star Wars 8 and 9 Then you would not consider the violin concertos by Beethoven or Brahms as masterpieces? The last 3 string quartets by Mozart? Bruckners 7th Symphony? Bartoks concerto for orchestra? etc. etc. They are absolutely great, but I do not find very much surprise or experimentation in them, compared to earlier works. Just pure musical genius.
  8. Some compare the 2 violin concertos, often preferring the first. While this is a viable opinion, I want to point out that the 1st concerto is very much in debt to 20th century concerti from Bartok and Prokofiev. While the 2nd is pure Williams, unmistakable. This lets me rank the second higher, since I enjoy both equally.
  9. Watched the Concert on Arte yesterday and liked it very much. While his style for concert music had varied significantly in earlier years (compare flute concerto, violin concerto 1 and clarinet concerto) and seemed often a bit meandering and structurless to me, Williams seems to have found his concert voice; the piece is instantly recognizable as mature Williams concert music. While it is much less tonally centered than most of his film music, you hear the same voice in lots of small details like motivs, built-ups and instrumentation.
  10. This is the exact reply I got for my query: We looked into that but it wasn't an option for the service that manages the delivery of our digital files. The SACD is the only way to get the 5.1. Thanks for the question. Jeff
  11. I asked about the 5.1 and they replied that they looked into it, but could not make it work with the delivery system they chose. Pity. I would have payed at least 30 Euro for the multichannel tracks which would be still half of the price of the SACD (due to postage and customs) for me. Heck, I would have payed at least 40, which is double of the regular download.
