  1. Conditions for concert visit in Corona times https://www.berliner-philharmoniker.de/en/hygiene-rules/
  2. Berliner Philharmoniker playing music of John Williams at Waldb├╝hne on June 28, 2015: To my knowledge it was the single one recorded film music concert performed by the Berliner Philharmoniker. It was released on DVD and BluRay.
  3. Info from Roger Feigelson from January 2021: Well nothing is predictable, but we're hoping for more stuff by DeVol, Kamen, Goldsmith, Elfman, Williams, Goldsmith, Bernstein, Folk, Goldsmith, Poledouris, Zimmer. But who knows...things change rapidly! DeVol, Kamen and Goldsmith are already out, so the next one is Elfman and then ...(probably at the beginning of June) ... Willliams!!!
  4. I have the programme of 1998 concerts scanned:
  5. If the new version includes OST with improved sound and has another benefits as better cover, thick booklet full of information,..etc., (see 1941, Dracula, Earthquake, E.T., The Fury, Home Alone, Jaws, Jaws 2, The River, Rosewood, Superman, War of the Worlds, etc.), so there is no logical reason to keep the previous version. I will probably never listen to it again. It will collect dust and take up space only. So why to keep it when I can pass it on somebody who will be glad about it. Sometimes I use these old OST versions as prizes in my film music contests.
  6. Yes, you're right. I have tried to synchronize it and it fits and sounds wonderfully. Thanks for a good idea!
  7. And it is not enough! DG is releasing also Blu-Ray only edition. https://www.amazon.de/John-Williams-Live-in-Vienna-Blu-ray/dp/B08NVDLLX1
  8. I'm preparing my lecture about John Williams' scores for sci-fi films where I'm going to use some film scenes with music only.
  9. Yes this is exactly what I need to know and where are the edit points because the End Title part is not only sped up but also edited.
  10. Yes, I did. But I still don't know how to alter "Prelude and Main Title (Film Version)" (track 17 on Disc 2) to fit it to the film scene. Unfortunatelly I don't know how to do the upward pitch shift and subsequent small edits exactly the same as it is done in the film.
  11. I have tried to match "Prelude and Main Title (Film Version)" (track 17 on Disc 2) with the actual Main Title scene from the film and it doesn't fit! It seems the music track from LLL 3CD set is much longer and slower than the actual music in the film. Can anybody help me how to synchronize it? Thanks a lot in advance.
  12. When the new mastering is done by Mike Matessino it always sounds better.
  13. Both have been recorded in London at the Abbey Road Studios.
  14. The videorecording of the ceremony is available on YouTube again!
  15. What is wrong with the dynamic range of Superman 3CD set? I have also read some complaints on the remastering of the OST album on Disc 2 of E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial 2CD set but haven't noticed any problems with it. BTW is there any other case where Mike Matessino's remastering reportedly sounds worse than the original soundtrack release?
  16. Jay, in the long main list Angela's Ashes is Sony Music release but in the simplified list it is Universal Music Group release. What is right?
  17. It seems it is "Temporarily out of stock" again. http://store.intrada.com/s.nl/it.A/id.11896/.f
  18. Czech Television (CT) has broadcasted the concert recording (with Czech commentary) on Monday. It is still available on their website: https://www.ceskatelevize.cz/porady/13576669986-john-williams-ve-vidni/22054215003/
  19. Kyle Eastwood (Clint Eastwood's son) plays the jazz arrangement of music from The Eiger Sanction The track is from Kyle Eastwood's album Cinematic
  20. Yes, I think this is the reason why Amistad, Saving Private Ryan, Minority Report and Catch Me If You Can are Dreamworks Records releases and The Terminal, War of the Worlds and Munich are not.
  21. Really? According to the following sources all U.S. versions were released by Decca Records too. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Williams_discography http://www.soundtrackcollector.com/title/65585/Terminal%2C+The http://www.soundtrackcollector.com/title/69722/War+Of+The+Worlds http://www.soundtrackcollector.com/title/73506/Munich Only FYC promos for The Terminal and Munich were released by DreamWorks.
  22. Arista Records 1990 Home Alone (La-La Land 2015) Jay, IMHO Arista Records released the song album, not John Williams' score which was released by CBS Records. Dreamworks Records 2004 The Terminal 2005 War of the Worlds (Intrada 2020) 2005 Munich Jay, in fact these 3 soundtracks have been released by Decca Records, not Dreamworks Records.
