"My friend, Howard Shore, faxed me this Lord of the Rings suite..." Can't Post

Awesome Hawaii Symphony concert in Honolulu this afternoon, with Sir James Galway. Fantastic performance of Mozart's Flute Concerto No. 2 in D Major. But for me, the personal highlight was this moment, with Sir James introducing an encore: "Yesterday morning, my friend Howard Shore, faxed me this Lord of the Rings suite for flute and orchestra, which he arranged for me. Last night was its first ever performance; this is the second." It was basically all the flute-centric themes, from Hobbiton and the tin whistle to some of the sustained Mordor bits, ending with "sailing West" music. I cried.

The rest of the concert ("Scheherazade") was outstanding, but this LotR moment was priceless.
