As I posted yesterday, the family and I went to Symphony Hall last night to see a performance by the London Concert Orchestra of various pieces of film music by John Williams. (The composer, not the guitarist).
The man’s an incredible talent – apparently he’s had 45 Oscar nominations for his music. According to his IMDB page he’s only won 5 times which I find difficult to believe!
The performance was great. They only did two pieces I didn’t know, Sayuri’s Theme from Memoirs of a Geisha and the theme from a film called Far And Away (I think!) that I’ve never heard of!
For a few of the films, such as Harry Potter, they played several pieces. They closed with 5 different pieces from Star Wars including the main theme and the Imperial March, before an encore of the Flying Theme from ET.
Jurassic Park gave me chills. LOVE IT.
