Night at the Symphony

with Lando Le' Pimp

On Saturday Stinkhead and I attended the Pittsburgh Symphony conducted by John Williams. What a truly delightful experience this was. After all we had to attend a Williams' concert before he dies. He is old!

Williams opened with the Liberty Fanfare written for the rededication of the Statue of Liberty. The concert continued with the suite from the film JFK featuring beautiful trumpet solos. Truly marvelous. Music from Harry Potter showcased Williams fantasy music.

Across the Stars, the theme from Star Wars Episode II, was superbly played with intense emotion and technical finesse. Williams continued the George Lucas epic with the Throne Room leading to the Finale from Star Wars: A New Hope.

The audience cheers of approval provided Williams to give three encore's consisting of the themes from Indiana Jones and E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. For missing the news that night, the grand finale was the NBC Nightly News Theme.

In the most recent AFI 100 Best Heroes and Villains, a large percentage of the top 50 are from movies scored by Williams. His music brings out the spirit of a character. Can you picture Luke Skywalker fighting Darth Vader without the rousing chorus of trumpets? Indiana Jones swinging his whip without his epic fanfare? Tom Brokaw giving the news unaccompanied by stately The Mission? This is why Williams is so successful. The music becomes part of the character.

After the concert, cocktails were consumed as we talked about what Sci-Fi characters we most would want to see naked. Truly a sophisticated night.
