On the Lawn at Tanglewood this evening with the Boston Pops Orchestra. Our Pops conductor Keith Lockhart is leading a live-to-picture performance of Star Wars: A New Hope, a showing of the classic 1977 film, with the Orchestra performing Mr. Williams’ iconic score.
For live-to-picture productions, the orchestra performs the entire movie score in real time as the film unspools. (Vocals, dialogue and effects are isolated from the original music track.)
Generally we get to hear Star Wars scores a couple times per season here at Tanglewood, but tonight we get a chance to hear them with the backdrop of the movie (Episode IV) that launched a franchise, to say the least!
I celebrated another full trip around the sun, since my coming into this world, earlier this week. Tonight my wife, some dear friends and me will be enjoying some enticing wines along with our movie night. So notes...maybe, but I'll try! — 7 days ago
Nice Gruner Veltliner from Sud Tyrol. Paired it nicely with speck, pancetta coppata e soma d’aij. — 17 hours ago
Nice balanced Gruner for the frequent seafood dishes in Nuuanu. 11.5 ABV organic. Good texture and a sense of lift even if not the most complex. — 6 days ago
On the Lawn at Tanglewood this afternoon with the Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra, the youths (mostly college)! Our conductor Andris Nelsons is leading one operatic work from WAGNER (Die Walküre, Act II & III). This is our WAGNER weekend with the BSO, Act I was performed last night.
Citrus pith both dry and fresh, cold yellow apple, light green herbs, dry granite and light tangelo on the medium finish. (Note to self, buy this again!) — a month ago
Fet och koncentrerad. Mogen frukt där skal och stjälk fått åka med. Kanderad citron, vitpeppar och mineral. Känns som flaskan är inne i ett dumt mellanläge nu, skulle nog tjäna på några till års lagring. — 7 days ago
First impression is this is like Riesling. Sweet and sour, but fruity is more than Riesling. It would match with a bit spicy cuisine. Slightly bitter. @, Vinsenble, 190815 — 8 days ago
