MUSIC LIGHTS LASERS FIREWORKS!
First of all, the lighting during this concert was absolutely AMAZING!
I'm a tough cookie but put me in front of an orchestra and I am like jelly! Within 5 minutes of the first piece by Williams, I was almost in tears! Tears of pure joy and love of that magical sound. The sound of an orchestra! No one composes for an orchestra quite like John Williams! There's something very powerful, playful, almost child-like about his music. None of his scores sound the same. You can feel his excitement and energy through his music and it pulls at your heart in a particular way, words can not even describe!
WOW!!! What an emotional, pulsing, deeply powerful piece of music and yes... now I can hear his unique style! This piece completely won me over and was the most intense moment of the concert. I took a video but I can't seem to upload it which is a shame!
I must mention how awesome Anthony Inglis, the conductor was! Not only doing a terrific job conducting but also very entertaining and had the audience laughing on more than one occasion! Half way through the concert, there was an announcement! He was taken ill and Johnny Depp was now going to conduct! He came on dressed as Jack Sparrow! It was brilliant.
He did it again during Star Wars... This is what it would look like if Darth Vader were to conduct an orchestra with a lightsaber lol!
Music isn't a competition, we all have our own tastes and preferences and the world is big enough for every musician and composer out there. For me, John Williams is a musical genius... I would highly recommend this concert to everyone! It makes for an interesting study and amazing experience transporting you into another world with its incredible, atmospheric lighting/laser display and fireworks!
