Album Notes and Credits


Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote 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 "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, and Boston, Pittsburgh, London, and even the Skywalker Symphony Orchestras all lent their talents to this album. Such intergalactic talent makes for a thrilling ride through film music history.

Artist Overview

One of the world's most revered and prolific film composers, John Williams began his scoring career in the 1950s, but didn't hit his stride until the '70s, following his first Academy Award win (for FIDDLER ON THE ROOF) with his iconic music for JAWS and STAR WARS, which garnered him additional Oscars. Renowned for his sweeping Wagnerian orchestral pieces, Williams quickly became the go-to composer for blockbuster movies and network TV. He has tempered that penchant with more nuanced scores over the decades, including his work for long-time collaborator Steven Spielberg on the films SCHINDLER'S LIST and MUNICH, among others.
