Last night, the Royal Albert Hall hosted a celebration of John Williams. The great man himself was scheduled to appear and conduct his legendary compositions but sadly had to cancel a few days before due to illness. John’s good friend Dirk Brossé took over conducting duties and lead an incredible journey through cinematic musical history backed by the phenomenal London Symphony Orchestra.
The concert was broadcast live on Classic FM and can listen to the broadcast of the concert at the here: John Williams Celebratory Concert
Below is John’s letter to London Symphony Orchestra, expressing his sadness and disappointment at not being able to appear with them.
