I ordered my copy directly from JCP in Germany, as the blu-ray is supposed to be region free. I received a shipping notice a few days ago. Now it's a waiting game to see how long it takes to get to me in Florida.

Same here. My copy arrived last week.

Agreed with John, that was a fantastic article Maurizio. Thank you for sharing it here. I would not have said it so well myself.

Thanks, gents. I wrongly named critic Eduard Hanslick as "Bernhard". It's corrected now.

I received mine on Monday. Great Blu-ray!

Because of his age, I will more than likely never get to see John Williams live / in-person so this is as close as I will get.

The orchestra gave a fantastic performance.

With all that's been going on, perhaps this was the last concert conducted by Williams himself frown (wishing of course this is not the case and that he conducts for many years to come)
And we were extremely lucky this happened, because covid-19 was already a thing in January.

Perfomance - almost like the original recording


the conducting: sorry to say but it is slow and not like he used to do - this must be a result of his age - and to be honest - i don't think he'll be here in two years time (we could be lucky though) - so enjoy and appreciate the time here is here with us now while we can

He is an 88 year old man with a pacemaker - god bless him! That he even conducted two concerts in less than 24 hours, each lasting 2.5 hours is a miracle on its own.

Received discs yesterday. Listened to most of it. The sound is amazing. The Dolby Atmos track fills the room. There is a conversation between Williams & Anne-Sophie Mutter where they discuss film music, working with the orchestra and the importance of Vienna as a center of music.

If for only the funkiness of Shark Cage Fugue you should get this. But the concert is so great and I am only half way the viewing.

Listen, for someone at 9 years old who loved both the movie and the "Soundtrack" of Day the Earth Stood Still (Bernard Herrmann) this is a revelation for all those who love film music no matter the composer and who may as I do think that this music is classical in every way, will love to at least see this DVD once.

Sorry I am overcome that in this blasted 2020 this has come out.

Have my eye on this. Loved going to his Hollywood Bowl concerts when I lived in Los Angeles, and I miss not being able to attend anymore after relocating. (My final concert had Spielberg as a special guest though, so went out with a bang at least.) I'm not sure if this would be an adequate substitute or just make me miss the real thing, though.

The new "Live Edition" of "John Williams in Vienna" with the complete concert experience including the composer's concert announcements and 6 bonus tracks on CD for the first time.


FROM THE MASTER OF CINEMA MAGIC

The legendary American film composer John Williams conducts the Vienna Philharmonic for the first time - “A visit from God” was the headline of the standard, “Standing cheering choirs from the very first appearance: as if God is received by earthly disciples.”

John Williams documented in Vienna the historical appearance - "a very special honor" in the life of the composer.

Symphonic Hollywood sounds on the stage of the Wiener Musikverein - the world-famous orchestra plays cult themes from Star Wars, Harry Potter, Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park and other milestones in film history.

As the star guest Anne-Sophie Mutter with adaptations for violin specially arranged for her by Williams.

Star Wars, Harry Potter, Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park - the soundtracks of the master of cinema magic John Williams are among the most popular in film history and have received numerous prestigious awards, including five Academy Awards, five Emmys, four Golden Globes and twenty-five Grammys. Now the legendary American film composer has recorded the most famous, beautiful and touching cult themes for the first time with the Vienna Philharmonic. "Great moments in film music" was the headline of the Wiener Zeitung, "Hollywood's grandmaster delighted with excerpts from his life's work at the podium of the Vienna Philharmonic."

Williams' two concerts at the Wiener Musikverein on January 18 and 19, 2020 were the first performances the composer has ever conducted in continental Europe. Working with the Vienna Philharmonic is "a very special honor" in his life. In addition to Williams and the orchestra, another exceptional artist was on stage in the first half of the concert: Anne-Sophie Mutter. The conductor and the violinist continued their artistic partnership after their joint album Across the Stars.

The new album "John Williams in Vienna" combines cult themes from ET, The White Shark, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Jurassic Park, Indiana Jones and other milestones in film history as well as two previously unreleased adaptations for violin des "Devil's Dance" from The Witches of Eastwick and the "Raider's March" from Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark. Of course, the world-famous "; Imperial March" from Star Wars should not be missing. "One of the best performances of this march I've ever heard," said Williams.

Was feeling kind of low, but after receiving this as a gift from a kind and thoughtful friend (thank you, Judy) I had a huge grin and tears in my eyes while watching this cranked up on my big screen with surround sound. Wonderful recording of a magnificent production.

That’s what you do when you have a hit recording. I bet they wish they’d recorded 10 more cds worth.

When John Williams was Rehearsing with the Vienna Philharmonic...The Musicians asked John Williams if they could play apart of the Concert, The Imperial March from The Empire Strikes Back, which John Williams has not included apart of the program.

John Williams agreed, and The Vienna Philharmonic rehearse Twice The Imperial March. And The Rest is History. The Look of John Williams face says it All. “WOW” Williams says at the End with the Roar of the Enthusiastic Vienna Crowd(Never Got that Emotions from those Cold Boston Members and Audiences)..It is Amazing to Hear and Watch. This is like John Williams has said before, maybe one of The Best Rendition of The Imperial March.
