It looks like The Royal Scottish National Orchestra will be giving a concert devoted to the music of John Williams in March 2014. Many of us will be familiar with the RSNO's fine renditions of Superman, Amazing Stories, Midway and others that included much Williams music until then unavailable elsewhere. The press release for the forthcoming season mentions the concert here: http://www.rsno.org.uk/press/?p_id=68&action=Read+More Although the RSNO website does not give a date, venue or conductor (as far as I can see), I note from his website that conductor Richard Kaufman is due to conduct the RSNO on 8th March 2014. Now I am no Sherlock Holmes, but I wonder if the two events could be related? The RSNO + Richard Kaufman + John Williams would be sure to be a winner. EDIT: The RSNO has just announced its 2013-14 season and this concert is indeed in their brochure. It will take place at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall on Saturday 8th March 2014 and will be conducted by Richard Kaufman. I will keep an eye out for a proper link.
Someone (it may have been Quint?) was lamenting the paucity of John Williams concerts in England's Northwest in John Williams's 80th birthday year. Well, I post because I care! http://www.liverpoolphil.com/?lid=8920 The dependable Richard Kaufman conducts the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra on 6th October 2012 at the Philharmonic Hall. There is also a shorter, family concert for the little'uns earlier the same afternoon.
