Again, until rights to all these audio clips from lots of great scores is straightened out this will be a rare opportunity to see this free. It wont be on youtube or anywhere else. Easy parking and a reception in the restaurant behind the building. Colburn school 220 S. Grand across from Disney Hall. The last screening was filled with musicians. I talked to two who played on the last INDIANA JONES film and CAPTAIN AMERICA. Who knows who will be there this time.
Annie and her husband Dylan Hart came to our university last spring for a weekend that included a screening of the film as well as workshops and class sessions, and ended with a concert in which Annie and Dylan performed with student and faculty horn players. I got to have lunch with Annie and attend most of the events. The concert ended with a beautifully arranged medley of western themes (amazing how well Blazing Saddles fits in between How the West Was Won and The Magnificent Seven!). The documentary has interviews with some of the major horn players (many of whom have passed on since the interviews were done, making Annie's work even more valuable), and one of the most fascinating aspects to me was the section dealing with the union in-fighting among Hollywood musicians. This is definitely worth seeking out if you get a chance to see it. By the way, Annie was a student of Jon Burlingame and got him to do the narration, but told me he hadn't seen the film yet. Jon, if you read this forum you need to check out the film if you haven't already. I should also mention that the weekend occurred because of the dedication and effort of Randall Faust, who is one of the great champions of horn music, for film and otherwise.
And you could probably get similar numbers with some of the trumpeters, violinists and basically any other instrument group (though I doubt many would challenge DeRosa's number). It just shows that some of these musicians are extremely skilled, and composers wanted (and want) to use them all the time!
