In the second half of the 20th century, no composer has had a more lasting influence on Hollywood than John Williams. This collection of his music includes the famous signature film themes, but goes beyond to feature incidental music and themes for individual characters as well.
Williams' potent use of a full orchestra creates themes that propel films. His best-known work is well represented: the themes from STAR WARS, JAWS and SUPERMAN are all here. However, lesser-known pieces, such as the "Scherzo for Motorcycle and Orchestra" from INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE are sure to thrill movie and music fans alike.
Some of these recordings are from the original films, but far more of them are later recordings. All the sessions were conducted by the composer himself. The Boston Pops, Tanglewood Festival, Boston Symphony, Pittsburgh and London Symphony, even the Skywalker Symphony Orchestras all lend their talents to this album. Such intergalactic talent makes for a thrilling ride through film music history.
