So does Williams have any more concert engagements between now and December?




The right column features an "upcoming concerts" box that is always up to date

He's even orchestrating more of his scores now than ever before, whereas previously he used orchestrators to copy out his sketches into full orchestral sheet music (with Eddie Karam & Conrad Pope on the prequels for example, while Williams orchestrated the entirety of TFA and TLJ himself). It's as if he's getting to the stage where he has such a specific vision of how he hears the music in his head, he needs to see it through from conception to recording.


I don't believe this is really the case - maybe you're interested in this interview: https://www.finalemusic.com/blog/may-the-fourth-spotlight-on-joann-kane-music/


So while it's true that there is no orchestrator anymore and the way of working for music preparation has changed, Williams still works the same way with his sketches. I believe he also conducts from them, but regardless he's always been 100% the author of his own music :)


Anyway, like you said, we're all so lucky with him having so much vitality for his age, and working so much and  delivering undiminished quality still  - what a man. And he looks great in these pictures here!

He seems to be aging in reverse, especially in that last picture! How lucky are we?


Hard to believe it was 5 years ago we had those 'scary' Book Thief interviews where he looked very tired. Maybe he just skipped his morning coffee that day.

The bassoonist is beautiful, I've got a whole new outlook on the instrument.


There can't be very many solo bassoonists in the world. She's full time with the Nashville Symphony.
