It's an intriguing festival with great potential. However, they haven't yet had any REALLY attractive guests. And I'm not too keen on the Goldsmith concert they're having (I've attended an almost similar one here in Norway). Plus -- it's being held in September, thus competing with other functions like Krakow and Ghent.

But I'll follow the development. I'd definitely like a return to Prague; haven't been there since 2000.

I wouldn't probably call Rachel Portman and Jan A.P. Kaczmarek unattractive.
We'll see about this year's guests, one of them is hopefully very close to final confirmation (fingers crossed).

I am pretty sure this year it WILL be interesting for you ;-)

The only thing I'm worried about is that it -- right now -- seems to crash entirely with Krakow (exact same dates), and I'm associated with that festival this year.

"We invited several composers of film music as a special gusest of the FILM MUSIC PRAGUE festival. Participation of guests is their good will. We can not guarantee it."

so, basically, they can put whatever composer name they want?!

Yeah, the same way Krakow put names of James Newton Howard and Craig Armstrong last year.
The same way Peter deliberately put Henry Jackman on his guest list for last year's Fans of Film Music
etc.

Glad to hear and I hope to see you there and that you'll enjoy it.
Programme of Jerry Goldsmith tribute concert is still being finalised and except for usual "crowd pleasers" it will also include several pieces making its concert debuts.

Wow, again?

Elliot's become somewhat of a "Europe lover" over the last few years (what with Ghent and Krakow and now this).

It's certainly an intriguing guest, him being one of my favourite composers and all, although I've seen him on both previous occasions (and interviewed him twice). I wish there was some way to combine Prague and Krakow this year, but there you go. frown

Well, the scheduling really sucks this year with all Vienna, Krakow and Prague overlaping exactly on the same dates... no idea why Vienna is this early this year, while it was in early October last year, Ghent is usually around the end of October and doesn't overlap with anything... Also no idea why is Krakow this year suddenly over the week, while it usually started on Thursday or Friday and main event was on Sunday... at least this is how it was last year...

but nothing we could do about it now... perhaps when Krakow announces its schedule it will be possible to for example visit Prague on 24th for our Goldenthal and Goldsmith concert, then Vienna on 25th for Randy Newman and then move to Krakow and still attend a few events there (since their main event is usually closing the festival rather than opening it). At least all of these three cities are only a few hours by train from each other and everything is manageable. Personally I'll definitely check the Krakow dates and programme as soon there is anything announced and will try my best to attend if funds would allow it.

We are currently still in negotiations with a few more possible and very interesting, busy and popular guests and if they will be available, we might have to add another concert probably on 26th so perhaps it might be possible to stop by in Prague on the way from Vienna to Krakow to attend our second concert here, but it is way too early to tell now and I'll definitely post and update as soon as anything else is also confirmed.

Tickets for our Goldsmith and Goldenthal concert should be on sale probably in the 2nd half of this month or in early May.

Well, I'm skipping Vienna this year (Randy Newman is not really for me), so I could combine Krakow and Prague -- unless Krakow wants me there for the whole duration. They are really taking their time getting the dates and program out there -- it seems to have been particularly difficult this year.

Goldenthal in concert and attending such a thing is a front page type of news...
anyone considers going?

So is this one concert featuring music from both composers? I was hoping Goldsmith would get his own concert.

1/2 Goldsmith
2/2 Goldenthal
