Peter Bernstein (son of legendary film composer Elmer Bernstein) posted this on Facebook … thought I would share it here since not everyone here is probably on FB. Lillie Harris, the author of the terrific manual, is not only a terrific manual writer but also excellent when it comes to music prep.
“The Great Escape Live last night. Where do I even start? The amazing BBC Concert Orchestra which preformed heroically - a three hour rehearsal followed by a three hour performance of a very energetic score. Lillie Harris who prepared the scores in record time and especially Tommy Pearson, without whom none of this would have ever happened - and this just a few weeks after becoming the father of twin boys months earlier than planned. The crowd clapping along with the theme at the end and especially the score itself which is a masterpiece. An honor to conduct and the only off note being that my father was not there to see it, but I felt like he was around somewhere.”
And now of course I’m very curious whether Dorico was use to prepare the score and parts for this show!
