  1. In this topic, there has already been some speculation about WP seating on JW concerts and we had a good chat of our own with @Marian Schedenig so I decided to ask my friend who plays double bass in the orchestra (and also played in both JW concerts). He told me the following: I don't know, we always play in this [i.e. American] setup when we're touring and sometimes also in the Musikverein, depends on the programme/project. I think Williams didn't care about the setup we play in. After Saturday's concert (which I attended), he also told me that the orchestra loved this project and working with JW who "was very nice to everybody" and that he - the bass player - rewatched E.T. before this project "to remember it all". He pointed out the unprecedented reaction of the public which, so he said, "we've never experienced before, regardless of either conductor or venue". They had three rehearsals with Johnny before Saturday. During the intermission I also spoke to percussionist Thomas Lechner (he played the timpani in JW concerts) whom I also met some 10 years ago and he told me basically the same thing - couldn't sing enough praise to the project. He told me he totally remembers how he cried at the end of E.T. when he was a kid and that being able to play all this music with the Maestro himself at the helm is (was) for him a huge privilege.
  2. Finished Broadchurch. Terrific! Will shortly be starting Homeland S4, also watching Twin Peaks (well, rewatching it after 25+ years), True Detective S1 and Westworld S1.
  3. It's definitely a great band, very versatile and with a unique sound. Got these three last Saturday in Vienna: - Broadchurch soundtrack - Neujahrskonzert 2020 - Neujahrskonzert 1987, WP conducted by Karajan (this was a gem I wasn't expecting to find and was a great bargain at 5 EUR)
  4. No, none of those yet. Those are my first two CDs by APP and I must say I very much like Tales ... with The Cask of Amontillado being my absolute song so far.
