The excellent John Williams website JWFAN.com has had a forum member post an interesting post about what John Williams said while conducting at the Young Musician’s Foundation Debut Orchestra
“We’re about to play Star Wars [audience interrupts with cheers] and each time we play it, I’m reminded of the first time we played it decades ago. Neither I, nor George, nor anyone else involved thought this would go far or in a few years there would be a sequel and I’d have to revisit the themes…and years later another trilogy. Now we’re hearing of a new set of movies coming in 2015, 2016…so I need to make sure I’m still ready to go in a few years for what I hope would be continued work with George…[more cheers].”
Well to me that shows that the master is not thinking of hanging up the Star Wars baton just yet. YEEEESSSSS!!!
