Orchestrator Discusses “Duel of the Fates”

Naboo News found Le Monde’s video interview with Conrad Pope, the orchestrator who worked on TPM.  Here he discusses the “secrets” of “Duel of the Fates.”

(What does an orchestrator do, as opposed to the composer?  An orchestrator prepares music for performance by a full orchestra.  In this case he would’ve worked closely with John Williams to figure out how the London Symphony Orchestra was going to perform the music during recording sessions.)

The video is here.  Even though the site is in French the video itself is in English with French subtitles.
