After a worrying few days of illness that led to the cancellation of his highly anticipated concert at the Royal Albert Hall it’s with great relief that we hear the maestro John Williams is fighting fit and ready to dive back into work with the score for his final Star Wars saga film, Episode IX.
The good news was reported on the Film Score Board where record producer and Williams friend Mike Matessino shared the great news.
John’s doing just fine. He went to Ginny Mancini’s Twelfth Night party last week. Just a few people there… Norman Lear, Quincy Jones, Leslie Bricusse… I don’t think he’s working on Ep. 9 until the summer; the schedule is still being worked out.
What magic will he weave in his final outing behind the baton? We can only dream, and wait for December 20th to arrive.
