    These won't change your life, but they're nice guitar covers with fewer views than they deserve.  Check 'em out!

    The end credits version is a different recording, it's much faster. To the point where it's jarring to listen to the actual cue afterwards because it feels glacial in comparison. Same thing with Scherzo for X-Wings.
     
    John Williams and insane tempo inconsistencies, name a more iconic duo (looking at you, Jurassic Park theme).

    Every time the discussion about one of these revised pieces ramps up, I wish for some highly musically literate person to create an infographic that lays out and color-codes the different sections of each piece by theme, instrument group, etc. I’m not capable of doing it myself, but if I were a 17th-century Prussian duke, this would totally be one of the targets of my aristocratic patronage.

    Too much info!
     
     
    I think it's a fun reimagining, but I don't want it to replace the original concert arrangement. They should coexist. Has JW withdrawn the original arrangement?

    I demand an album of various A-list artists' interpretations of Training Montage in as many different musical genres as possible.
     
    Including jazz trio, baroque and solo tuba version.
     
    This must happen.

    I know there have been tracks like that since then but the one that is standing out in my mind right now is Building the Crate from Chicken Run. By John Powell.

    igger6 reacted to Andrej in John Williams conducts the Chicago Symphony Ochestra June 9, 2022 (UPDATE - canceled!)   
    Chicago concert canceled
     
     
    An Evening With John Williams, scheduled for June 9, 2022, has been canceled due to an unexpected schedule conflict for conductor John Williams. According to a statement from his management, “John Williams greatly regrets that due to a scheduling change in a prior film commitment, he will be unavailable to conduct the Chicago Symphony Orchestra on June 9. He very much looks forward to reuniting with the orchestra and rescheduling this concert as soon as possible.”

    I think we can all agree it's great to have another Williams cue called "The _______ Scene" in the canon.

    I’ve visited in person, and Tom is dead-on. The lack of orchestral music in the Star Wars idiom is a glaring flaw in the land’s otherwise excellent design, one that has been commented on by several theme park blogs in reviewing the land as a whole. It’s eerily quiet in most of the land in a way that glaringly fails to remind you of scenes from the films, which nearly always have a Western orchestra playing neo-Romantic music under them. It’s inexplicable that Disney would voluntarily forget the playbook they’ve been using for 65 years to create immersive environments and arbitrarily tie one hand behind their backs in terms of sensory immersion in the theme. Literally every other land they’ve ever created uses music as part of the immersion. This one arrogantly attempts to reinvent the wheel and kneecaps itself in the process.
     
    I am not calm either. 😎
