  1. This is lovely. It's always heartwarming to see musicians tributing JW.
  2. It's the same Signature Edition that has always been available at HL, as also recorded by Erich Kunzel with the CIncinnati Pops and, more recently, by the Film Symphony Orchestra: The Signature Edition differs from the version recorded for the OST album/end credits for a longer introduction, a small addition in the middle development section and an extended finale.
  3. No, it's a live concert that will be live streamed as well
  4. Sure, both Vienna and Berlin courted him for years, and he was eager to visit them. Anyway his schedule has always been incredibly busy, plus JW is very loyal to Spielberg, to the BSO and to the people toward whom he feels a great amount of respect and commitment. Scheduling these concerts is something that really can take years of planning.
  5. Possibly, but it's also European musical institution like Vienna and Berlin that are finally accepting him worthy of their illustrious tradition. And it's great to see this while JW is still alive and kicking, despite being almost 90.
  6. Every "newcomer" has to go through an audition process when it comes to big studio films, even when there is an ongoing relationship between composer and director.
  7. I've been told the price range for this concert is going to be €28-€98. Definitely less expensive than Vienna.
  8. It's going to sell quickly, but I highly doubt that both the 14th and the 15th are going to sell out just with subscription packages (which cost 400+ Euros). No way the Berlin Phil will put out all 2,200 seats for both nights only with subscription plans. I'm sure they will get an unusual amount of subscription packages because of this, but the bulk will go on sale for the general audience.
  9. Do you know if the Oct 16 date is just a digital broadcast of one of the two previous nights or an additional date?
  10. So surprised to see this going ahead! Well, it goes without saying that I'll do whatever I can to be there of course
  11. If you look closely, you can see tracking dots on Ford’s face and also on his jacket and shirt (similar to the behind-the-scenes photos of The Irishman). So this confirms that at least part of the film will have a digitally de-aged Indy.
  12. https://thelegacyofjohnwilliams.com/2021/06/10/steven-c-smith-william-stromberg-podcast/ I hope you'll like this. It's a fun, engaging conversation with two of the most authoritative and knowledgeable people I know about film music. At the link above you can also read a short essay I wrote to contextualize things even further.
  13. The Tanglewood performance is going to be broadcast on WCRB: https://www.classicalwcrb.org/blog/2021-05-28/tanglewood-2021-on-the-air-and-online
