Play your own Into Darkness soundtrack, and other nuTrek news

Good new trekkie pianists, due out in a couple of weeks from Hal Leonard, is the Star Trek Into Darkness score, for piano solo. The blurb below details the included tracks:
The piano-centric score to the 2013 film in the popular Star Trek series was penned by Michael Giacchino, and performed by the Hollywood Studio Symphony on the soundtrack. Our songbook features eight selections for piano solo: Brigadoom * Buying the Space Farm * Kirk Enterprises * London Calling * Meld-Merized * Star Trek Main Theme * Sub Prime Directive * Warp Core Values.

If you're prefer to leave playing the soundtrack to the professionals, and happen to be in the UK next May, then maybe you might also enjoy Star Trek Live in Concert, at the Royal Albert Hall. Since I last mentioned this, Star Trek Into Darkness Live in Concert  has also been added the day after, on the 30th of May, and with the both performances evidently being in demand, a third date was added, with both films playing back to back on the 31st!

In other Into Darkness news, Germany has become the fourth country where the Into Darkness bluray and phaser set is on offer. Like the French version, the German release comes with a steelbook version of the bluray:

Meanwhile in Japan, Alan Dean Foster's novelization has recently been released, in a Japanese translation.
