I just hope all these singles don't mean they're releasing *only* the new stuff and not doing an album.

If they are only releasing three digital singles I don't think DG's subby Emil Berliner Studios will be pleased.


But perhaps they are prepairing for some limited direct-to-disc release with these digi-singles acting as bait.

..."Bereits am 11. November wurde die Single “Fawkes the Phoenix” mit Ausschnitten der Filmmusik aus dem zweiten Harry Potter-Film “Harry Potter und die Kammer des Schreckens” veröffentlicht. Am 2. Dezember erscheint die Single “Sound the bells!”, eine festliche Fanfare, für die sich Williams von traditionellen japanischen Tempelglocken inspirieren ließ. Am 3. Februar 2023 folgt schließlich die dritte Single mit Williams' “March of the Resistance” aus dem Film “Star Wars: Das Erwachen der Macht”.

unofficial translation:

The single “Fawkes the Phoenix” with excerpts of the film music from the second Harry Potter film “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” was released on November 11th. December 2 will see the release of the single "Sound the bells!", a celebratory fanfare inspired by traditional Japanese temple bells. Finally, on February 3, 2023, the third single will follow with Williams' “March of the Resistance” from the film “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”."


SWEET! The performance of Sound the Bells will be released on my birthday, too! AWESOME!

Very nice! I wish that they would just release the whole album instead of doing these singles... The same thing is happening with the Zimmer Live album lol. By the time the full albums are released there will be nothing new to release as all will be out as singles already!

2CD. 2CD+BR. BR. Vinyl+BR. Vinyl single. Double pack with Vienna 1 but without ASM's pieces. Double pack with Vienna 1 but with ASM pieces. Double pack with Berlin with speeches. Double pack with Berlin without speeches. All in aforementioned formats.

Unfortunately, minus BR for Vienna II, which was not filmed.


BUT a Super-Deluxe Edition containing UHQCD of Berlin, Vienna I & II, Milano, a strictly limited direct-to-disc pressing of Vienna II, plus three BR with Berlin, Vienna I, Milano, including previously unreleased footage of the rehearsals, plus the same on DVD.

Shortly after the trumpet tremoli around 2:04, I can hear a strange downward gliding noise. Does anyone else detect that and know what that is?

So what’s exactly going on here? Are we getting a full release or is it just the two digital singles?


Why? Did someone at DG take the decision to cherry pick these two to “complete” the Vienna #1 and the Berlin concerts without any overlap?

It would be weird to release singles without an album. Good to hear they’re continuing with another single release, drumming up some “hype” for the full album.


We’ll probably get a digital release further down the line, but no physical album, which I am OK with.

At this point, I highly doubt there's going to be an album. I think it's pretty clear that DG is just releasing the tracks that they did not yet have recordings of JW conducting.

Is it possible to have some details please? The picture isn't clear and the video is unavailable where I am.


"March of the Resistance" performed March 2022 by VPO conducted by JW.


Announced to be released 3rd Feb 2023 by DG as a digital single.


It will probably show up on YouTube and many other platforms worldwide.
