    Not orchestral, but if you love that you'll love the the jazz cover.


    Orchestral stuff everyone should love:

    [YOUTUBE="NrjbofNb-7c"]Music from The Right Stuff, by Bill Conti[/YOUTUBE]

    I bought The Right Stuff on DVD at a closeout sale for $4 a few days ago and watched it today. It has been a while since I've seen it. If you haven't seen it, what are you waiting for? It's probably the finest movie ever made about Chuck Yeager's supersonic flight in 1947 and the Mercury 7 astronauts.

    The first half of the video is from the scenes at the beginning of the movie where Yeager attempts to break the sound barrier, with some very deliberate cues from Gustav Holst's "The Planets" (it has been a while since I've listened to "The Planets", so I can't remember which one in particular; 'Jupiter'?). The second half is the main theme from the film with some cues from "The U.S. Air Force" song (a.k.a. "Into the Wild Blue Yonder"). The song was hummed in a memorable scene by astronaut Gordo Cooper (who was from the USAF), played by Dennis Quaid, to drown out the humming of the "Marines' Hymn" by John Glenn (a USMC pilot), played by Ed Harris.

    I put an awful lot of effort into not offending people, considering how bored I am.

    There was a Back to the Future marathon on TV yesterday. I only caught the tail end of Part II and the beginning of Part III before I went to bed, but I've seen them all a zillion times so I'm not particularly upset about it.

    This is the 'overture' from the first film, again composed by Alan Silvestri.



    0:00-1:12 occurs before Marty takes his mother to the Enchantment Under the Sea Dance, as he's writing a letter to Doc Brown about the events of the night he went back in time.

    1:12-6:00 is from after the dance as Doc and Marty prepare for the trip back to the future. Doc Brown's explanation of the plan starts at 2:00 as the music builds. At 2:53 Doc says "Well, I guess that's everything," and he and Marty share a hug, Doc not knowing that Marty may never see Doc alive again. At 3:33 Doc discovers the letter Marty wrote and they argue about it until 4:05, when lightning strikes a tree in the courtyard and causes the cable connection at the clock tower to come apart. At 4:24 Doc runs up the stairs inside the clock tower in order to throw a rope down to Marty and hoist the cable back up. At 5:12 Marty begins yelling up to Doc "I have to tell you about the future!" The clock strikes 10:00 and drowns out Marty...

    At 6:00 a cue from after Marty's trip back to the future begins. I won't totally spoil it for those who haven't seen it.

    Major classical music buff right here. Talkclassical forum is my home on the internet, I'm just a visitor for now, who knows, if I like it I may be here to stay.

    I'm big on the symphonies and right now am exploring symphonies that are either in single movements or have mostly a non stop continuation between movements. Exploring american symphonies as well, my favorites so far are William Schuman's 3rd, Roy Harris's 3rd and Copland's 1st without the organ.
    Roy Harris Symphony 3!

    As my user name suggests, I'm a big Medtner fan as well, though he didn't write much for orchestra, except his piano concertos. His 1st is my favorite

    Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach was a major influence on Mozart and Haydn.
    I'm so glad you mentioned CPE Bach, he's one of my favorites. I like many of his sonatas, symphonies and concertos.

    To what extent is your appreciation intellectual, and to what extent is it a purely emotional response to a piece? Or rather, how do these aspects colour your appreciation?
