There is free registration to attend virtually for those interested. I signed up so as to be able to stream the musical pieces.

Wasn't it Conrad Pope who leaked about the ASM arrangements?

Yes he was. He said he arranged Leias Theme.

Perhaps a performance of this? 

 


One can only hope.

Yes, a proper recording of the "Young Person's" piece would be great, although it's pretty well covered in various videos (like the one posted above).

Interesting that ASM is performing as part of a quintet (as well as in the final piece) - but very nice she is playing with Harrell's widow for it.

 

And of course, no JW composed pieces but that does not really shock me. I suspect he would have thought it too egoistic to program his own music.

Gorgeous performance of Over the Rainbow. A great arrangement by Randy Kerber that I'd never heard before, performed beautifully by ASM and the orchestra under the direction of the maestro. 

 

Someone needs to remind JW how to properly wear his mask, though! :lol:

The whole concert was absolutely lovely, from start to finish. So glad I could tune in live.

Did anyone manage to make a recording of Over The Rainbow? I saw this to late, and joined just in time for the final applause.

 

Don't worry, the website itself said they're were gonna upload it in complete form.

That's probably a revision of his earlier arrangement for Harrel and Brewer that Williams conducted in 2012 for the Heartbeeps project.

 

Williams should have conducted "Crimebuster" for the project!! Missed opportunity!!

 

;)

It's already available on demand.

 

Seems to have a few hiccups during the Williams/ASM performance, unfortunately.

At 5 am I was lucky I was able to even write a similar word ROTFLMAO

 

I haven't checked the on-demand file, but the live broadcast did have a few hiccups :(

Just razzing you, @Miguel Andrade!!  Couldn't let that go by without comment.

There is one frozen moment for about 2 seconds at 1:50:31 of the on-demand version (Williams and ASM the shot), and later a sudden jump forward at 1:51:03 when the bass section is shown.

Yeah, it was something like that during the live stream. I imagine there must have been some connection issue while upstreaming to vimeo.

New on-demand video available, minus the hiccups ;)

 

It's also been edited down to remove portions in-between the performances, when the crew is setting up for the next ensemble and the camera pans around the venue. etc.
