I was interested in the comments regarding the orchestrations that Goldsmith uses in this score. I am curious - does Goldsmith orchestrate his scores himself, with the credited orchestrator playing a merely supervisory role, or does the credited orchestrator actually take Goldsmith's compositions, and do the final orchestration?
