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 here 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! — 4 days ago
Since 1880, Maison Joseph Drouhin has built a reputation for wines that primarily reflect their individual terroir and vintage. Medium Ruby with pure red fruit on the youthful nose,100% Pinot Noir. On the palate, this dry red has flavors of cherry and strawberry with a bit of licorice. Medium+ acidity with fine soft tannins on medium finish. Good now and over the short term. Nice value. — 10 days ago
This is so delicious. Serious, muscular with loads of elegance and length for its youth. So textural and rich without any heaviness, beautifully balanced acidity and oak treatment. Ripe apricot, peach, green pineapple, vanilla, cinnamon, cream, anise, river stones, green almond, yellow flowers, honey. Very expressive nose and palate. Can sense the elevation of St Epine in its freshness and concentration. I could see this going the long haul no problem. — 11 days ago
