The Horner piece is "Flight": https://www.pacificsymphony.org/tickets/ACF/the_music/flight

EDIT: Whoops, I was looking at a different festival.

Horner, absent from the screen for nearly two years, is now busy with concert commissions. Due in November is Horner’s double concerto for violin and cello, to be debuted by the Liverpool Philharmonic with up-and-coming Norwegian sibling soloists Mari and Hakon Samuelsen. March 2015 will see the debut of a piece for four French horns and orchestra played by the London Philharmonic.

That's actually very good.

He can write his own stuff with no-one breathing down his neck and forcing him into temp-track.

This'll be a phase where the real JH can shine through.

I hope he does SPECTRAL SHIMMERS for an encore! wink

I've lived in Liverpool for about 100 years now and during that time, the closest we ever came to anything film-musicy was when Carl Davis owned the Liverpool Phil.
Now, in a matter of months, we will have Stewart Copeland unveiling his new percussion and orchestra piece, plus Nico Muhly and Tan Dun at one of our cathedrals (yes, we have two) and old Jimbo premiering a new classical work 'n'all.
I can only assume they are huge Beatles fans and want an excuse to tour this fine city.
Or maybe they love Luis Suarez smile
Either way, it's pretty cool. Maybe John Williams will come over for dinner next year.

'Always meant to ask you: are you related to Paul McGann, he of 'Withnail and I' and one of the Dr. Whos et al.?

He's from Liverpool, no?

To William.
No, no relation to the acting McGann's that I know of.

To Mark.
I don't know what that means!

And I also forgot to add a new work by Michael Nyman (Hillsborough Memorial) that I couldn't make if I wanted to, as I will be in London at the time seeing David Arnold in concert that same weekend.

Rex was born in Huyton!

Where will the Nyman work be performed? I'm guessing Anfield, or the Anglican. (Not that I can go either, as I'm also going to see David Arnold.)

And thanks for the explain wink

Makes sense. Better acoustics.

What I am most excited to hear from the new Horner piece is which style of classical will it be?
Having heard the way John Williams and Ennio Morricone go at it, i.e. nothing like their film music at all, I will be hoping it's more akin to compositions by Lee Holdridge, Michael Kamen and Elmer Bernstein that I have enjoyed and thrilled to over the years.
I guess we will find out in November.

Holy Danger Motif Batman, an extra date has now been added for the new Horner concerto in Liverpool, on the following night.
So, if anyone can't make the Wed 12th date, Thur 13th is up for grabs!
Can I get a REWIND!!! wink

The Thursday night is actually a second concerto that happens to sound exactly the same as the first one. Bloody Horner, plagirising himself! big grin

The new Horner classical work will also be recorded in Liverpool and released on CD by Mercury Records during Spring 2015*.
It would be great if they add (to the CD release) the Horn(er) Concerto planned to premiere around that time in London too.

*Credit to Mark L who keeps supplying me with the info/updates smile
