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! — 2 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.
Still in love with the beautiful golden color of this wine!
The nose has light petrol, baked green apple, honey and mashed, ripe apricot. The palate is mouth-filling, apricot jam with honey, baked green apple, slate drizzled with honey, and possibly a hint of white flowers. Finish is so long and awesome.
These bottles are still continuing to improve, could easily see 2027-32+ — 21 days ago
Vintage 2009 / would never have thought that this Riesling is 10 years old, only slightly developed colour and enormous refinement. I closed my eyes, sipped, tasted butter and butter and butter again, minerals and yes there was also a moment of total surrender, heavenly 🤫 (Paradies!) paired with anti pasta of bell pepper and capers, then carrots and green beans with sausage — 10 days ago
Superb nose. Caramel, brown butter, ripe apricots, pie crust, slate, citrus. Stunning aromas. Palate is dense with an icing on cake texture with terrific freshness and acidity. Opulent and energetic with lovely purity. Very complex. Really somewhat young on the palate but still divine. — 8 days ago
