I got the Phantom Menace study score last week, which includes The Flag Parade, Anakin\'s Theme, The Adventures of Jar-jar, and Duel of the Fates.
Well, unless I\'m terribly mistaken there are a number of discrepancies (dare I breathe the word \"mistakes\"?!) in the dots on the page. One example (there are more!) is that the very first chord of anakin\'s theme: it\'s supported by a low E in the basses (possibly celli there too) on the CD. But the sheet music has them silent.
Also, I would swear its a glock outlining some of the appogiaturas in the woodwind in \"the flag parade\", not a celeste as appears in the published version.
Worst still is that the website (http://www.soniccontrol.com/books/) would have you believe the score includes \"Jar-jar\'s introduction\". (part of the reason I bought the score) It doesn\'t. Instead you get a kind of medley of the various Jar-jar themes called \"The adventures of Jar-jar\", which is ***not*** on the CD. So far, I have found that the first 40-or-so bars of the score correspond to the opening of track seven on the CD, and there are parts of \"Jar-jar\'s introduction\" (the end, I think) which are in the medley ***somewhere***, although the log-drum parts are missing.
Sorry, but it bothers me there be discrepancies like this. Peter Alexander, do you publish these scores? Could you shed some light? Why include \"The adventures of Jar-jar\" and not \"Jar-jar\'s introduction\"?
PS: I would give my left arm for the score to chase through coruscant. Anybody need a left arm? Oh. Ok, well 75 dollars.
