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! — a day ago
Black cherry, black tea aromas are the first impression, then a spice aspect... Asian, Vosne-spice, as many often refer. What was so compelling was the incredibly smooth, satiny tannins making this a joy to drink. Acid was present yet not dominating or negatively affecting the tannin taste. Not an extracted wine; nor concentrated. Understated perhaps but regal nonetheless. — 19 days ago
Première expérience avec Cathiard... c’est bon mais je m’attendais à un peu plus. Peut-être que de passer après Raveneau ne l’aide pas. Un vin d’une belle structure, des fraises et framboises au nez. Des épices viennent s’entremêler au fruit en bouche. Longueur appréciable pour un village. — 17 days ago
No greenies or acidic expression for this ‘11. Red fruits, some loamy aspects with soft mouthfeel and moderate length. Was a pleasant surprise owing to the vintage. Kudos to A Gros! — 14 hours ago
Meo-Camuzet Aux Brulees, VOSNE-ROMANEE PREMIER CRU, 1995
このAux Brulees,は比較的パワフルだが、このヴィンテージまで熟成させると絶妙なバランスで見事！ — a day ago
gorgeously perfumed, vosne spice, absolutely sexy knockout nose; color is lighter than CLB’s vosne, but impossibly deeper flavors. Never shut down after opening, slight reduction quickly blew off and kept getting more and more complex. Delicious!! — 10 days ago
