    Oh well. I guess we'll have to wait to see what kind of tone the film ends up having. I was quite disappointed in The Force Awakens to be honest and I rarely returned to the score after the initial couple of listens (as much as I worship Williams).

    Hopefully.
  1. Only in Austria I'm afraid.
    Bach's music is vibrant and inspired.

    Yes, Austria only. I didn't know sad
    My son spent 20 minutes fixing the TV so I could watch it on the TV, but then I couldn't watch it after all.

    You can watch Hollywood in Vienna with Alexandre Desplat now on YouTube!
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JeDJR_nVr-k

    The first part contains music of space movies (Gravity, Star Trek, Star Wars, ...). The second half is dedicated to Desplat.

    First Contact is horrible indeed. I laughed tears (first that violist and then her heee heee heeeee), but it's sad.

    I don't know why they want so many soloists in this concert. Are they afraid the orchestra can't fill the show with excellent music? That there isn't enough to see and hear?

    Desplats music was good thankfully. I'm on my second listen now with headphones.

    Looks like a good concert if you're a Desplat fan. They're repeating the first half about 'space' which they also did in the Horner concert, though. But I guess you can never have too much space.
    I am extremely serious.
  2. That concert really is lovely. Highlights what a major figure Desplat is in the history of the medium. And that's without anything like Birth, Ghostwriter or tree of life making an appearance.

    before I click on it, I'm going to guess you gave it 4.5 stars... will get back in a moment to see if i was right!
    Bach's music is heartless and robotic.
