2 Hour Joe Hisaishi Concert

Today, I found myself listening to a 2 hour concert of Joe Hisaishi's Miyazaki film scores. It's great! He's great! I'll embed it below, so you can watch or listen to it as well! (I've written about Joe Hisaishi and his Miyazaki film scores before, here in this post.)

I listened without watching most of it since I'm at work, but I did watch the end, when Hayao Miyazaki presented Joe Hisaishi with a bouquet. Ah, such emotion! I did also watch the part when John Lasseter and Miyazaki were singing Totoro. Haha. If you don't want to listen or watch the whole thing, I'll recommend watching at 1hr 26mins  until the end of the Totoro section. My favorite pieces, the Spirited Away Reprise and Totoro theme, are in that section. But really the whole thing is great! Sometimes, I just love to listen to grand, sweeping, orchestral pieces, don't you? I listened to a bit of John Williams today as well, you know Star Wars, ET, Harry Potter. Now, I want to go the orchestra. Too bad nothing is on at the Boston Symphony Hall, they're all at Tanglewood.

I've been really bad with posting lately. Sigh!
