Where can I find the complete cue list for Home Alone?

 

This is from the live-to-projection version, but should be pretty close (especially since it uses mostly the original handwritten full scores, unlike most other LTPs), apart from missing the cues that weren’t used in the film (I think there’s two of those):

I think it's better and more film score cue-like.

Nope.  It's a unique composition titled "Revenge of the Sith (DVD Version)" in the sheet music.  It is, of course, based on the film cues for their fight, like how Battle in the Forest or Scherzo for

I know it's not on the OST, so not directly relevant to this thread, but can anyone confirm how many recordings there are out there of the extended Throne Room and End Credits from ANH?

 

I know the Skywalker Symphony 1990 recording has it, plus I think the Gerhardt recording in the late 70s has it, but are there any others?

Off the top of my head, there’s Zubin Mehta with the LA Phil, Erich Kunzel with the Cincinnati Pops (Time Warp), Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Phil, and there’s a City of Prague recording as well (not sure who conducted it, possibly Paul Bateman).  The Throne Room extension is also in the Episode III end credits, but it’s obviously not a standalone piece.

That arrangement has a studio recording released digitally and on physical CD

Thank you for the hint. One arrangement here, one arrangement there. I hope that one day they will be all available in one release.

Interesting that you don't choose anything from the Skywalker Symphony recording or the 80s Boston Pops recordings, @GerateWohl, and they don't seem to get much coverage from others here either. I think I'm right in saying that, between them, they have the only recordings of The Man Himself conducting several, if not all of the SW concert arrangements - doesn't this give them some extra value over, say, Gerhardt or Prague?

Hi Mark,

that is an easy one. I simply don't know these recordings.
