    TownerFan got a reaction from Edmilson in Howard Shore's King Kong   
    Hardly uncommon, sadly. However, many factors come at play in such situations, it's not always this black and white so that one can find the culprit in some dumb studio executive or some micromanaging director. In the end, it's just a business.
     
    Btw, Shore allegedly reworked some of the material he wrote for King Kong for his concert work Six Pieces.

    TownerFan got a reaction from SteveMc in Did you know John Williams's "The Mission" had 4 parts, including a scherzo and a fugue?   
    And the Scherzo for X-Wings is almost a minor-key variation on Scherzo for Today

    It's almost unbearable to watch and listen to this now. I'm incredibly sad for the untimely loss of this powerful, inspiring man in such tragic circumstances. And it's even more painful to think about what the family is going through. May them find solace after this immense grief.
     
    Rest in peace, Kobe and Gianna.

    TownerFan got a reaction from Brian99_1 in John Williams' DISASTER MOVIE SOUNDTRACK COLLECTION (Poseidon Adventure, Towering Inferno, Earthquake) 4CD Box Set from La-La Land Records NOW AVAILABLE   
    I know you're probably busy listening to other John Williams stuff today , but here's the long-awaited podcast with Mike Matessino about the DISASTER MOVIE SOUNDTRACK COLLECTION:
     
    https://thelegacyofjohnwilliams.com/2019/12/11/mike-matessino-podcast-disaster-soundtrack-collection/
     
    It's a long and thorough conversation where Mike talked also about his work on Monsignor and Minority Report. Loads of music clips interspersed all throughout.
     
    Co-hosting the show with me is again the ever-reliable Tim Burden.
     
    Hope you'll all enjoy!

    TownerFan got a reaction from Tydirium in How do you rate The Witches of Eastwick?   
    The score isn't just brilliant comedic writing and fanciful exaggerated romanticism which fits perfectly with the film it serves. IMHO, it's one of Williams' absolute masterworks in terms of orchestration and harmonic language. It's dazzling as pure music to the point it goes well beyond its filmic nature.
