  1. Please can somebody give me information which european on-line shops are selling jewel case versions?


    I was told that all shops in UK are selling jewel case versions only but it is not true because for example Presto Music is selling digipack version!

    So it seems it is not that simple. Unfortunately the shops do not mention what version they are selling!


    Please help!


    Thank you very much for your advice in advance.

    Fascinating! This bodes well for a Blu-Ray/DVD release of the concert too. (Although I really want the concert from Tanglewood.)


    Oh heck, I want them both!



    Since C Major Entertainment has already released another John Williams' concert on DVD and BluRay it is possible!







    And they have the following two programs for licensing on their website:







    They have already release the first one, so I think there is a big chance they will release the second one too!

    According to Deutsche Grammophon Store the CD edition will be limited digipack!




    I hate digipacks, especially the limited ones.




    I hope they will release unlimited jewel case CD edition with bonus tracks "Markings" and "Remembrances" later :P

  5. 1) Approximately which days will you be in London for?  (IE, "I'll be there from Tuesday the 23rd through Sunday the 28th")

    Our group of 5 Czech fans will probably arrive on Wednesday the 24th and leave on Saturday the 27th.

    2) Are you also going to see Harry Potter 3 live at Royal Albert Hall on  Wednesday the 24th?


    3) Would you be interested in a group tour of Leavesden Studios on Thursday the 25th or Saurday the 27th?  Which day would work better for you?

    Yes, we have already tried to buy tickets to Harry Potter tour but unfortunately it's already sold out in that week.
    Jay, do you know some magic spell how to get there?

    4) Would you be interested in a group tour of Abbey Road Studios on Thursday the 25th or Saurday the 27th?  Which day would work better for you?

    Yes, we would be definitely interested in a group tour of Abbey Road Studios. In particular for me it would be my dream come true!

    5) Would you be interested in a group screening of a JW-scored film at the BFI IMAX some day that week?

    It depends on the film.

  6. I have analyzed the musical themes in The Force Awakens score and I have found following 20 new themes/motifs so far:



    Rey's Theme - actually there are FIVE different themes/motifs for Rey, which is really awesome!


    Kylo Ren's Theme - sinister fanfare first heard in "The Attack on Jakku Village"


    Kylo Ren's Secondary Theme - 8-note motif, the most prominent in "The Abduction"


    Poe Dameron's Theme - masterful (and my favourite) heroic theme first heard in "I Can Fly Anything"


    Finn's Action Theme - actually it is more likely Finn's and Rey's action theme, heard in "Follow Me", "The Falcon", "The Rathtars!",...


    March of the Resistance Theme


    Snoke's Theme - but it is not completely new because of its reference to "Palpatine's Teachings"


    Death Theme - heard in "Starkiller" and "Torn Apart"


    Scherzo for X-Wings Theme


    BB-8's motif


    Map motif


    Escape/action motif - ostinato heard in "I Can Fly Anything" and "The Resistance" (FYC promo)


    Torn Apart motif - heard in "Torn Apart" and at the end of "Snoke" (album version)


    First Order motif - heard in the begginning of "The Attack on Jakku Village, Part 1" and "Snoke" (FYC promo)


    TIE Fighter motif + TIE Fighter pilot motif - heard together several times in "The Falcon" and then in "The Jedi Steps and Finale"



    + of course The Jedi Steps Theme which propably will become the real theme in Episode VII



    Have anybody found another theme/motif I have missed?

    Also recorded on February 3rd, Revenge of the Sith DVD Version (Battle of the Heroes, presumably).

    It is great. But the recording dates look strange in comparision with "Hyperspace in London" reports. If I catch it correctly the recording sessions started on February 3th (see report "Post Notes: The Score Begins - February 03, 2005") not February 2th. The recording date of "End Credits" differs the most. In reports they've said it was recorded on February 9th and here it is February 17th. Please could somebody shed light on it because it is real mystery for me. Thank you very much.

  8. Does anybody own DVD-Audio version of A.I. soundtrack?

    Please could you tell me something about the sound quality? Is it really Dolby Surround 5.1?

    I have naturally already got CD version of it but I'm very disappointed by the hollow and flat sound which is IMHO destroying wonderful Williams' music :(

    Does DVD-Audio really sound much better than CD?

    And what about SACD version of E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial?

    Thanks a lot for any piece of information.

  9. I have a video of John Williams writing and then conducting some scenes of The Empire Strikes Back. It runs for about an hour.

    Have you got it on DVD or VHS? I've got this documentary only as a very low-quality Video-CD from Miquel. It's so wonderful that I want it in better quality playable in full screen resolution :)

    I have a Williams concert not conducted by Williams, what will you offer?

    Is it that German MDR concert from Miquel or is it something else?

    Tangelwood 2002 / 2003 conducted by Williams ( 2x~45min )  

    Classickonzert ( 15min music from williams ) not conducted by Williams  

    Williams plays music from AI ( 5min )

    Is it on DVD, VHS or AVI, MPEG,...etc? Thanks for info.

    An RC2 DVD of a Morricone concert was recently released in Europe, entitled Ennio Morricone - Arena Concerto. It's very good mostly, though I'm not too happy with the sound, it's way too surround-y. I don't know if that's the mix or just the Arena acoustics though.

    Yes. I know that. I have ordered this DVD two weeks ago and I'm still waiting for it :?

    E-Wan - who loves documentaries and film music concerts :P

  10. I'd like to see some documentaries or videorecording of film music concerts on DVD or VHS (PAL only). I'm especially interested in everything connected with John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith, Ennio Morricone and Bernard Herrmann.

    Does anybody here have such DVDs or VHS recordings in very good quality? Or have you friend who has it?

    I'm going to trade something in return or pay for it.

    Please let me know!



  11. Good friend of mine is selling original Warner's CD The Witches of Eastwick with card signed by John Williams!!! Everything is in very good condition.

    He have also original cassette Raiders of the Lost Ark for sale.

    If anyone is interested please contact me and make an offer ;)


    I will manage the trade instead of my friend because he is abroad for a long time. Only Euros or British pounds are accepted!


  12. I envy you that you have opportunity to watch John Williams' concert on TV. Unfortunatelly in your country we have no film music concerts and no TV stations bradcasting them :wave:

    So I would be very very grateful for every videorecording of any John Williams' film music concert on CD-R (AVI, MPEG, DAT or MOV) or PAL VHS!! If you can help me with that please let me know. My e-mail is: e-wan@cswu.cz

    Thank you so much.
