He was the conducter when it premiered at Tanglewood this summer. There's always a difference between hearing it from "within" the orchestra (or on the podium) and from the audience. Reverb and instrumental balance can vary a lot. A conductor will often have an assistant check the acoustics from further back during an on-location rehearsal, or let the musicians perform on their own at key points to check for him-/herself if no assistant is available. I would make sense for Williams to check how the audience hears his orchestrations and perhaps make some tweaks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
