Also one time he was supposed to write a violin and piano duet, and he wrote the violin part, but he didn’t really feel like writing the piano part, or was too lazy etc. When the concert came up (he played the piano while a fiend played the violin) he set up a blank piece of paper (so people would think he was reading music) and improvised. After the concert he wrote it down so it could be published

okay i’ve reblogged this before but can we just give a shoutout to the orchestra that had to sightread the overture to an audience at the premiere of an opera

Hey! You really thought the 25AC was better than the movie? The 25AC, with its useless Valjean, its annoying Javert, its squeaky Marius, its horrendous Enjolras, its disgusting Thenardier, its unbearable Grantaire? TBH, the only nice things about this atrocity were Fantine and Cosette. But, to each their own, I suppose.

It’s definitely one of those to each their own things for sure, I love the movie I just like the concert better. I think they were stronger singers. With the exception of Nick Jonas. I adore Samantha Barks as Eponine. Alfie Bow as Valjean was great, in my opinion I think him or Ramin, who played Enjloras were the strongest singers in it also love aaron as enjolaras because he’s a really stong singer too). Although Norm Lewis as Javert was amazing too. I love Hadley Fraser though so him as Grataire was alright for me idk, and Thensardier is meant to be disgusting so that’s a good think I guess? Lea Salonga is a wonderful Fantine, she has a stong voice and channels so much emotion into her songs, and I really like Katie Hall as Cosette much more than Amanda Seyfreid, Katie is a much much stronger singer than Amanda. I just personally think that with it being a live showing it was more raw and real, like with the movie they sang it as recording it instead of a studio with I LOVE but if they mess up they can go back and re-record it, but a 25th Anniversary concert with people in the Audience you get one chance. They have more time to know their songs and put emotion behind them and that’s amazing. They didn’t have to focus on moving around and doing things so that added more focus to the songs and emotions behind the songs.
