    I’m loving these podcasts. The four of you are so knowledgeable and have a great dynamic. I especially like how you play the music AS you’re talking about it (rather than before or after), so that we non-experts know what to listen for. More please!

      So glad you´re enjoying our podcast Grant! Yes, we feel it´s important to provide context for our listeners, especially those unfamiliar with the score in question. Thanks for listening and commenting!

    Loving these podcasts! Thank you so much!
    I’ve always loved The Battle of Hoth. I remember listening to it over and over and over on vinyl. Every single note and dissonance is impeccable! Especially from 4:00 and on…

      Thank you for listening and taking the time to comment. Us too! The shift in tone at the timestamp you mentioned and the musical passage that follows is excellent for sure and a great lesson in orchestration, as are all John Williams´ contributions to this franchise!
