Summon the Heroes

Yes, the lot. I have made the percussion playable by three players and only four timps (!) and the CONTEST (your 'mad oboe and bassoon bit'!) is in there (on tuned perc) but I have put an optional cut to avoid embarrasment all round! (Me included!)

Do you mind if I ask (and I really don't want this to appear insolent or provocative in any way) how you were able to get permission for these arrangements, when every formal licence request that I have made to obtain permission to make an arrangent of William's music has been refused with the blanket assertion that "it is policy not to authorise third-party arrangements of John Williams' music"

Just wondering.

Regards,

Gareth

I've had this response to. I myself have tried to get permission for several JW arrangements, and always been turned down, as i know Wright & Round and Bernearts Music always struggle to get permission to (as they have tried on my behalf!) Something to do with JW having to personally approve any score of an arrangement! So i myself would be most grateful if any insight was offered?
