    The concert was an incredible concert. The Beethoven Triple Concerto was played very well. I really loved the Schindler's List Trio (that as far as I'm aware was a world premiere). Anne-Sophie Mutter is amazing as always, and the anecdote about violins in space was interesting. Scherzo for Violin and Motorcycle was a lot of fun, as was Across the Stars. My second John Williams concert was awesome, just like the one from April of last year.

    What a great concert that was everybody. One of the best I think I've seen in a long time where his energy was alive the entire time....
     
    It was sad to see it come to an end. But I'm also optimistic that he definitely has the energy to keep going and produce more concerts.

    A truly magnificent evening! The Maestro was in top form and still sharp as a nail (except only a couple self-described “senior moments”, and during one I helped him remember Sean Connery’s name!). The new version of “Scherzo” was great fun and very much tailored for Anne-Sophie’s style, but the bigger highlight for me was the new version of “Anakin’s Theme” that was also done for her. It took the changes from the version debuted at Tanglewood this past summer and greatly expanded on them, ending on a haunting harp rendition of the Imperial March very similar to what’s played when the character dies at the end of Return of the Jedi - a truly unexpected and chill-inducing callback!

    I am sitting in my seat. Can’t wait!

    There’s literally not a bad seat in Heinz Hall (I’ve sat in all the bleeders)
     
     I’m so excited. It looks like there’s a whole class of students next to me. I would have loved an experience like this! Beethoven and Williams together, rear them up right. Good for them.

    Found a good (and affordable) Greek place to eat (Christo’s) on Sixth. 
     
    Afterwards I think I’ll pop over to RedBeard’s on Sixth for a beer (or two) before the show, with Heinz Hall just across the street

    None of the Rise of Skywalker concert arrangements (there's 4 of them) have actually been conducted in a concert by Williams himself yet!
     
    Only by other conductors.

    Why?  Who knows...

    There doesn't exist a Fabelmans concert arrangement for concerts yet

    So after a week in New Jersey my Dial of Destiny CD order was in Jamaica, NY (JFK) yesterday and should be flying to Canada soon. Hopefully customs will be as lazy as those handling my recent La-La-Land Always, Sabrina, and Amistad order and just let it slide through without any taxes.
