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 early studio days.  Legend has it that Previn tried to get JW to ditch film music and become a "serious composer and concert conductor".  Previn himself wrote over 50 film scores and earned four oscars for these scores before becoming an acclaimed full time concert composer and conductor. 

These days, the 87 year old Previn is quite frail and mostly wheelchair bound so this might be one of our last opportunities to see him in concert and also features a west coast premiere of an overture of his.
