    Just came back from seeing Lord of The Rings 2 Towers - totally amazing orchestra, choir and conductor! The score is quite demanding (could see the double bassists and timpanists working especially hard) and I appreciate all the hard work that must have gone into the rehearsals. Ludwig Wicki did a fantastic job at keeping the live music totally synched with the big screen. Other ideas for future concerts: Harry Potter and Twilight (the later scores by Alexandre Desplat and more Howard Shore)? :)
