    He might decompose a new theme.

    As much as Williams goes around touring with that little quip to 'Scherzo", it seems more good-natured than a malicious dig.  Williams has been around long enough to know to expect that stuff in post-production, and it certainly isn't the first time he's experienced editing/volume issues in the Star Wars franchise.  Williams has had nothing but unbelievably kind and gracious things to say about JJ and they clearly got along very well during the recording process.  I highly doubt there's any troubled waters between them.

    Since I was in the Rozsa mood today, I moved onto his violin and viola concertos.

    At some point I plan on picking up a bunch of their recordings all at once, like Ben-Hur, Conan the Barbarian, Lawrence of Arabia, Exodus, El Cid and Sodom and Gomorrah.

    nightscape94 got a reaction from Will in John Williams Conducts Williams with the Seattle Symphony -- September 27, 2017   
    The only times I attempted to seek out an autograph from him was after the New York concert in 2005, and Boston a few years ago. 
     
    In New York, there was a smallish gathering of us by the rear exit, but he snuck out somewhere else and suddenly people started running over to the parking garage, where he turned up, but he was already inside a car.  Felt bad for him.  People can be nuts about autographs.  He drove by us, I gave him a wave, and he waved back.
     
    In Boston, I didn't get near close enough.  He only gave a couple of quick autographs as he dashed in.

    I assume he's stuck in a permanent state of acting psychosis and is wandering aimlessly emoting to anyone who'll listen.  Poor guy.

    Can't look a gift horse in the mouth.  I will welcome this release with open arms.  Hopping onto the site and seeing the quick successive announcements of both this and E.T. at the top of the news feed was unexpected but spectacular.

    Admin note: This thread is largely hype for the release before it's release date, and then ordering/shipping/"it's arrived!"  talk afterward; Please relocate to the following thread to discuss the actual musical content of the release:

    I listened to the Mass in B minor recently, I can't really go too long without listening to some Bach.
     
    Here's some more Atterberg.  Check out this section from 21:53 through 23:55.  Lovely.

    For the sheer fact that he did the prequels, fans were expecting him to do TFA simply because it's a new Star Wars film, regardless of the fact that it didn't fit the mold for those types of reviews.
     
     
    And that's why TFA itself wasn't even the focus of the review, it just didn't lend itself to the type of harsh criticism that could fulfill the requirements of the previous treatments in the series.  It was just an excuse to poke the various branches of the franchise and its fan base.
