  1. Hello fellow John Williams and Star Wars fans alike! Was wondering if anyone would be in possession of (and if so, willing to sell) the following programme from John Williams’ live concert performance at the Royal Albert Hall in 1978? Thank you in advance! May The Force Be With You!
  2. MPORTANT: Based on our previous ones these concerts WILL sell out pretty quickly so please buy your tickets earlier rather than later. For those who have not attended our previous concerts, these were conceived by me over a lifetime of film music concert going. The emphasis is on the music I NEVER ever heard done by the composers themselves or anyone else. Future ones will include, of course, a John Williams night. For this one we include iconic Elmer Bernstein material like TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN, THE GREAT ESCAPE, GHOSTBUSTERS and TRUE GRIT. But while we have you her
  3. The Deutsche Radiophilharmonie (German Radio Philharmonic) performed a Williams-only concert apparently this summer. There has been a television broadcast which can be found here: https://sr-mediathek.de/index.php?seite=7&id=79205 (as long there is no geoblocking). However, on YouTube there is a much longer version. Enjoy!
  4. The John Williams 2018 conducting tour continues in Baltimore: An Evening with John Williams Plus, for a small additional charge of $500, a limited number of tickets are available for a VIP post-concert Dessert & Champagne Reception with John Williams and Marin Alsop.

  6. I've read that in 1977 there was a concert with music from Star Wars given in London, prior to the film's release. Is there any truth to that?
  7. The Czech National Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Shih-Hung Young, is currently on tour in Scandinavia this month, performing live to projection concerts of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Besides Oslo, where I attended the concert today, their website lists Aalborg, Karlstad, Stockholm, København, and Aarhus as other cities where they will perform. I am not exactly sure of the concert dates and ticket availability for those, however. This was, in fact, my first ever live to projection concert, and so I'll simply write a few brief thoughts on it, which will not be based on
  8. I've just returned from a spectacular concert that was stunning both musically and visually, so I thought I should write a short overview of what was going on there in the Oslo Konserthus. I am pretty sure there are more John Williams fans in Norway, so if you've been to the concert as well, you're very welcome to contribute your thoughts and correct any mistakes that I may have made (I didn't take any notes, and I am writing this from memory, so there is no guarantee that I won't mix up anything ) I try to never miss any performances of John Williams' scores in my area, even if it's some l
  9. Some of you in the Los Angeles area might be interested in attending this concert of the Pacific Symphony conducted by Andre Previn October 19-21, 2017 PREVIN: Almost an Overture (West Coast premiere) MOZART: Piano Concerto No. 9, K. 271 RACHMANINOFF: Symphony No. 2 https://www.pacificsymphony.org/tickets/concert/mozart_rachmaninoff/15742 Andre Previn is one of JW's oldest friends and the one who suggested the use of the London Symphony Orchestra for Star Wars. Previn was music director of the LSO at the time and JW and he were old friends & colleagues from the ear

  11. Hi, I'm new here so please forgive me if I do anything stupid. My name is Greg as you can see and I really love John Williams music. I would very much love to get his autograph. I'm far from rich, but it means enough to me that I would fly somewhere to get it. I live in Seattle. I'm thinking of flying to L.A. as I see he is doing some concerts at the Hollywood bowl. Does anyone know what my odds are of getting him to sign if I wait hours before the show? Or is there a better place? Thank you so much for your help it means a lot. Greg
  12. Of the many official live concerts that have been recorded and then broadcasted over the years (and often still available on Tanglewood and BSO websites), which one should really have to be released on CD/BD? Which is your favorite? Why it's so special? Please no bootlegs... only known official recordings!
  13. Hi! I don't post here much these days, but just a quick heads up about this event which i'm producing as part of the Belfast Film Festival. Sunday 30th March - A screening of Branagh's Hamlet with Patrick Doyle introducing the film and speaking about his Oscar nominated score. http://belfastfilmfestival.org/films/hamlet Monday 31st March - A concert of Patrick's music from Sir Kenneth Branagh's movies.

  15. I'm looking forward to a John Williams concert in here in Sydney, Australia, this Saturday (01/03/2014): Robertson conducts John Williams Music from the Movies http://www.sydneysymphony.com/production-pages/2014/concert-season/robertson-conducts-john-williams.aspx The Sydney Symphony orchestra (SSO) will play an evening of JW pieces under their new Chief Conductor, David Robertson. I'll eagerly write a review of the concert in the days to follow. It's the third SSO all-JW concert I have attended so far. Cynically, they tend to be a quick cash-grab for the orchestra by appealing to kids and oth
  16. Hello all! I'm selling one ticket for the concert on September 28th at the Phoenix Symphony Hall. This is a chance to see John Williams AND Steven Spielberg together on stage. It is also a charity event, so you'll enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime evening AND do good! I am stuck in Europe for work so cannot make it. If you are interested, please contact me at francis.barel@gmail.com. Thank you. http://www.jwfan.com/?p=5833
  17. What would you think if at John Williams' next concert in December, he did a performace of Aaron Copland's Lincoln Portrait with Daniel Day-Lewis as narrator??
  18. Just this month, Hal Leonard Publishing has begun releasing installments in the new Henry Mancini Concert Library Series, analogous to the John Williams Signature Edition Series. Already available are the orchestral scores (and parts, if needed) of the Peter Gunn Theme, The Pink Panther Theme, and March with Mancini. Should prove useful for music directors and score collectors alike.
