  2. I can't help but adding that Williams was an orchestrator for other composers as well. Just received the copy of the full score to "Men of the Yorktown" march and it is completely in Williams handwriting
  3. Anyone ever see the HBO film "Stalin" with Robert Duvall playing Stalin? Absolutely fantastic. The music was great! Written by Stanislas Syrewicz . frosty
  4. "Show me the way to go home..." This is kinda weird, but I had only been listening to my ipod all day and no radio. I listened to both Jaws and Jaws 2 today without hearing anything about Roy Scheider. We'll miss you! Frosty
  5. I had the idea of taking the Musashi story and turning it into an opera. It couldn't be in one part though. Maybe three. A lot of work. I'm currently rehearsing a Missa Brevis I wrote for the choir that I conduct. Also conducting the "New World" Symphony for the orchestra i conduct, and as an encore (since the Missa Brevis and the New World Symphony are on the same concert) I'm going to conduct "Call of the Champions". I have also started sketching an orchestral piece that i hope to premier in June. I have a bit o'work to do. Frosty Actually it's a ballet. An opera on the life of Miyamoto Mu

  7. Yes it does. Thanks! Does it also have the One Barrel Chase track from Williams on Williams? No
  8. I got it through Music Dispatch because they use the same catalog numbers as Hal Leonard. 04490414 Jaws, Suite from-Deluxe Score. Use the number. Try calling in the order because their websight has not been updates yet. 800-637-2852 JWSE=John Williams Signature Edition
  9. I have just received the JWSE of Suite from JAWS. Knock yourselves out and order through your favorite retailer. Frosty
  10. For those of you interested... http://halleonard.com/item_detail.jsp?item...=john+williams+ Check it out Frosty
  11. Let me see: John Adams (had an hour long solo chat with him, very neat and gracious person) John Corigliano: Had an half-hour chat with him. Harrison Birtwistle (english avant-garde composer) very pleasant, music is noisy and uninteresting. Steve Reich: Very nice, detests Schoenberg. Thea Musgrave Samuel Adler (wrote a great orchestration book and was head of the comp department at Eastman) was a complete asshole. Hated everything about him. Marvin Hamlisch: Good guy and very supportive. Keith Lockhart (he doesn't count though) That's just the list of musicians.
  12. They do NOT get the music ahead of time. They will sight read at the session, rehearse and then record. They might record a piece 6 or 7 times. Most of the time they get it in 3 or 4 attempts, but there is also splicing and such and pick-ups where you might start in the middle of a piece and record to the end. Most of these musicians are getting upwards of $250-300 an hour to record these scores. Union regulations require a minimum of one 3-hour session. Since most scores have an hour or more of music, and you might get 8-12 minutes of music per day of recording, you can see how long it takes
  13. In the Motion Picture Medley off of the Film Music of Jerry Goldsmith performed by the LSO, you can hear Jerry humming during the rendition of Air Force One at approx. 7:10 into the track.
