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! — 3 days ago
Made from Albariño, Treixadura & Godello from high altitude cool areas. Aged for 10 months in used oak. Big fruit & floral nose with flinty notes. The palate reveals white flesh fruits, somewhat racy requiring some aeration to calm down. Full acidity on medium finish ending with mineral tones. Has elegance but a wine you could age a bit. — 21 days ago
A very good gravonia-acolyte. Oak dominant nose but with layers of acidity that tell an alluring story. — 3 days ago

A palatable and enjoyable pale ale. — 7 days ago
