Very nice. I have fond memories of seeing Williams conduct at the Hollywood Bowl as a kid, and it’s amazing that he’s still at the top of his game (one only needs to compare the scores of Force Awakens to Rogue One to see how true this is).

This concert is an interesting selection of his music, and I loved the presenter’s introduction to the piece from “Lincoln”. I was a bit weirded out hearing “Somewhere in my Memory” with an adult choir instead of a children’s choir though.
