    The trailers contained the first ever recordings of what we know now as Hedwig’s Theme. Their inclusion is very significant for those of us who were around when they came out and we heard this incredible music for the first time.

    WHAT?! I never made this connection either, I'm not even listening to it, just hummed them and heard it. Incredible.

    The film really blurred the lines between diagetic and non-diagetic music. I could write a thesis on it! Actually that’s not bad, nobody steal my idea!
     
    Edit: if I ever wrote the thesis I’d probably spell “diegetic” correctly

    I absolutey adore the recorder solo in “the Courtyard and Sir Cadogan”, for some reason it really hits me emotionally! It’s like hearing the Past theme for the first time all over again, I just love it.

    Of all the musical ideas that did make it to all three films (apart from Hedwig’s theme), who’d have thought that the Invisibility Cloak would be it? Just listened to “The Three Broomsticks” again and noticed that it’s not just the ghostly synth gesture that makes a return but the whole harmonic/melodic idea. I’m guessing this has been known since the sheet music leaked but I wasn’t really around for that so this is news to me!

    Nonsense.
     
    The director's job is the make the most effective movie possible.  Your relationship with any of the collaborators shouldn't override your duty to that goal.

    According to something called Cultbox (I think they misplaced a consonant, there), the Centenary Special is titled "The Power Of The Doctor".

    That's not the arrangement intended for beginners. It's the official piano arrangement for intermediate and professional players. And it has at least two wrong notes in the melody.

    The official piano arrangements are not good. They are often too short. They often have mistakes.
     
    How can this piano arrangement of Buckbeak's Flight be the only one that JW and his team want? https://www.musicnotes.com/sheetmusic/mtd.asp?ppn=MN0047426 
     
    Nearly every piano YouTuber uses this arrangement verbatim and it ruins their performances.
     
     
    This is absolutely the solution. They are never going to fix the official arrangements. Let the buyer beware and only choose good transcriptions.

    So cool to look back on this pic and realize it's from Helena's Theme, when the horns take the melody in the second half.

    It's actually one piece of the process I've never been super clear on how involved Williams is personally, the post-recording music editing for when the picture edit inevitably changes.  I assume Ramiro Belgardt is the main person deciding how those edits happen, and then he runs them by JW?

    I stopped reading your attached article at "Marion is a damsel in distress; an object of the male gaze. Other female characters of the original trilogy are similarly objectified..." .
    Thank your for ruining my day with this woke nonsense and dragging Williams music into it.
     
    But don't worry. Faced with sexual misconduct allegations, Indy will be forced to resign from his job at the academy with Helena taking over his duties at the end of Indy 5.
     
    And the main plot of the film will involve Indy returning all the artifacts he stole from grave sites over the years and apologising to their owner's descendants when he realises it was cultural appropriation.
     
    (Damn, that would surely qualify Indy 5 for a best picture nomination at the Wokescars).

    Williams is such a master at fusing the Golden Age Hollywood sound with his own and making it so thoroughly and effortlessly his own. He is indeed the successor of those early film music giants and as Mangold says it that above tweet, bringing this particular pure symphony orchestra sound to modern audiences. Such a gorgeous theme.
