What concert suites do you wish existed from the Star Wars series?

Recommended Posts

Obviously, besides the ones that do already exist.

 

For me, I'd love to see a "Follow Me" arrangement for concert.  I was bummed that motif never made an appearance in TLJ and TROS.  Also, maybe something for Kylo Ren/Ben Solo.

The Droids from TESB

 

Bring on the Scherzo for Droids and Orchestra!

 

Bomp BAAAAAAAH bah doddle omp, doddle omp, BAAAAAAH!

 

If I were ever to change my JWFan handle, it would be to Droid Motif Acolyte.  But aside from that, I think "Into the Trap" would make an awesome concert suite with the addition of a nice B section.

No love for Holdo’s theme?

 

That would be my pick too. 

Though maybe Follow Me could make for a nice concert piece à la Snowy's Theme.

I can't be doing with the Force theme anymore (one of Williams' greatest themes ever), it just gets on my nerves at this point. So no, not that.

 

I've given up on a Resistance March alternate with full snares and boom-tish, it's never gonna happen now. But that would have been my choice.

The Force Theme and The Emperor's Theme.

 

Several years ago I have made my own "concert suites" of them by editing some parts of the original trilogy scores where these themes are used.

Duration of my "The Force Theme (concert suite)" is 4:27 and "The Emperor's Theme (concert suite)" is 3:46 long.

 

From the sequels it is Poe's Theme which I would like to have the most.

I would like an entire 5 minute epic concert suite ONLY and ONLY containing the Rebel Fanfare and developing that. It would be EPIC!!!1

 

I know you're being facetious but that's basically what Here They Come is

Fun thread!

 

Definitely Poe's Theme... It just cries out for more development.  But it is so sweeping and harmonically heroic.

 

I would like to see something of a Luke's Theme/ Rey's Theme/ Force Theme concert arrangement... done gently with a lot of melodic interplay.

 

It's Saga, all connected, so I'd love to see a Military Piece arranged from The Droid March, the Rebel Fanfare, the Hoth Rebel motif (from Leia's Rogue Squadron briefing), and the Resistance March.

 

I tend to look for things that could play well when paired together.

A New Hope

The Little People

Binary Sunset

Ben’s Death

 

Empire

Battle In The Snow

Hyperspace

 

ROTJ

Into The Trap

Light Of The Force

 

Binary Sunset is just The Force theme. 

 

Ben's Death:  Actually the 1997 SE discs could be used as a concert arrangement.

Oh, I can't believe I forgot one.  I always wanted more development from General Grievous' Theme from ROTS.   It is all too short and tantalizing.  Crazy death waltz for mutant robot leader, with choir.  Could've been a great one.
