Filmtracks On Cue


On Cue for August, 2001:





8/16/01 - Feedback about the John Williams score for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is already filtering in, with not a single negative review so far. An opinion in the Boston Globe recently stated, "The music is destined to be one of Williams' greatest hits, an affectionately allusive tribute to great fantasy music of the past - but in his own unmistakable voice." Reactions to the performances of "Hedwig's Theme" in both concert and the trailers has been overwhelmingly positive, prompting Williams to increase its usage in the film itself. At the Tanglewood concert on July 31st, Williams conducted this theme for the first time in public. One Filmtracks visitor in attendance remarked, "It is the best of Hook and Home Alone put together, giving you the magical chills that only a handful of Williams' scores make you feel. Instead of the bombast, you get the feeling that you are part of the story itself. If Williams really did read the book himself, it can be heard in the music." A special 'preview' page has been established at Filmtracks for news about Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.

8/1/01 - The August, 2001, Theme of the Month is a Collector's Corner Frenzy! The oldest section at Filmtracks, its Collector's Corner, is brought into the 21st Century, offering continued commentary about the current state of soundtrack collectibles, as well as the traditional information about bootlegs, promotional albums, and unreleased music. An overview of the CD series published by Varèse Sarabande, Film Score Monthly, Intrada, Prometheus, and more, is provided for completists. The new highlight of the Collector's Corner is an audio archive of samples from collectible film music. Beginning in August, 2001, Filmtracks will add new audio samples from unreleased scores on a regular basis, allowing you to hear pieces of the music that record companies aren't interested in releasing. The first audio clips at the new section include Young Sherlock Holmes, Jade, The War of the Roses, Innerspace, and The Relic. Keep checking back for monthly surprises!
