Concert Works

What have people heard about the concert works that John Williams is working on? What about any new news about JW's music in general? I don't mean Indy 4 or Catch Me If You Can, but other stuff that may not be known about by many yet. I'm just wondering if there is any news about Williams at all.

He's working on a horn concerto. I don't remember who it's for, but he's working. I'm not sure when it's supposed to be completed either. I guess I'm not much help. :devil:

The Opera House here in LA was talking to him about composing one. The horn concerto is for the Boston I believe, isn't it?

Yeah, didn't the old message board say in the complete works section "Horn Concerto, for Dave Clevenger (sp?)", and it said the estimated year that it would come out would be 2005 I think.

He will also be composing a fanfare for the Walt Disney Hall of the Perf. Arts in L.A. -- the future home of the L.A. Philharmonic.

The opera is still a rumour at this point. Johnny's concentrating on film work more these days (if you haven't noticed.)

I heard a rumour not too long ago (and then saw it surface on the web) that there is a possibility that a piano concerto might be coming within the next few years.

Director - looking forward to everything

In order to complete the discography section on my website, please, can somebody send me a complete list of John Williams concert works released on CD ?

Thank you :)

Now a Piano Concerto would be great! I've always wondered why he hasn't already done one, since he's a pianist himself.

-Chris, who's also written a short piano cocerto at the age of 14. Therefore, it isn't of very good quality.

Wow, Chris! That's really cool. At the age of 14, I always wondered how people could just sit down and write music. A few years later, I found myself doing the same thing here and there. It's pretty cool.

But it doesn't compare to making movies. :)

It is, however, a very close second. :)
