  1. It seems that JW has written a new concerto: "Percussive Planet". The premiere (?) will be at Berlin's prestigious open-air venue "Waldbühne", just a few steps off the Olympic Stadium, on June 26, 2021. The Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra will be conducted by Wayne Marshall; soloist: Martin Grubinger. https://www.digitalconcerthall.com/en/concert/53181
  2. This piece, minus the "Jaws" segment, will be performed in Austria on June 27, 2020: https://www.grafenegg.com/en/programm-tickets/once-upon-a-time-in-america?set_language=en

  4. I know who scribbled the STAR WARS theme onto the sheet. 😉
  5. The concerts on November 3 and 4 have been cancelled. http://www.salzburg24.at/john-williams-sagt-konzerte-mit-wiener-philharmonikern-ab/apa-1445098118
  6. I attended John's concert with the San Diego Symphony on February 10, 2007. The SDS is a great orchestra.
  7. I am happy to announce the latest collaboration between the London Symphony Orchestra, the European FilmPhilharmonic Institute and conductor Frank Strobel: "Tribute to Steven Spielberg" December 10, 2017 @ Philharmonie de Paris, France London Symphony Orchestra Frank Strobel, conductor Repertoire to include excerpts from BACK TO THE FUTURE by Alan Silvestri BRIDGE OF SPIES by Thomas Newman INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE by John Williams JAWS by John Williams JURASSIC PARK III by Don Davis POLTERGEIST by Jerry Goldsmith SUPER 8 by Michael Giacchino THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN by John Williams THE BFG by John Williams and other works https://philharmoniedeparis.fr/en/activity/concert-avec-images/17859-hommage-steven-spielberg
  8. No, this information is not correct. Scores and parts are definitely not engraved, although one rental library does hire out, for example, the Theme from JURASSIC PARK in John's own handwriting. This edition was available before JURASSIC PARK was eventually published by Hal Leonard. All works published within the Signature Edition series have been adapted from the original soundtrack version in order to suit the demands of a professional orchestra that intends to perform select excerpts in a standard concert setting. Most changes relate to instrumentation, for example: four horns instead of six, one keyboard player instead of two, and so on. As far as I know all works within the Signature Edition have been recorded, either by John Williams himself or by other conductors. I am not sure whether John himself is arranging / adapting his film music for concert use. I assume he did that job when he was with the Boston Pops. But be assured that all works within the Signature Edition have been authorized by John.
  9. This is the Suite from WAR OF THE WORLDS: https://www.amazon.de/Suite-War-Worlds/dp/B002N86WEK
  10. There is a typo at minute 12:07. The sign says "No tresspassing." It should say "No trespassing." ;-)

  12. Well, although I don't expect any fanfare or anything like "Air and Simple Gifts" for the next Inauguration, we should not forget that John Williams already scored a movie which has Donald Trump in it:
  13. Revised version of Cello Concerto (2012): Revised version of Violin Concerto (2016):
