Spielberg and John Williams = Blockbuster Hits

These two go together like two peas in a pod. Without these two and there creative minds we would not have the blockbusters that we would have today, like Jaws, Indiana Jones,Close Encounters, ET or many others that we all seen. We need to be grateful for there genius on these movies. I hope this team of the master film maker and master composer do more work together.

One Third of a Great John Williams Set

In the mid 1990s, Maestro John Williams conducted re-recordings of many of his classic film works for Sony Classical, and this was the first. These thirteen songs cover just what the title suggests: Williams's scores for the films of Steven Spielberg up to the point of this album's release. Taken as an album, and not an anthology of scores, it works surprisingly well. Perhaps this is because Williams's style has stayed fairly consistent over the years, and perhaps it's because his scores for Spielberg tend to operate in the same milieu. Be sure to check out the second volume of Spielberg re-recordings, "Williams on Williams" and "John Williams Conducts John Williams: Star Wars Trilogy," which revisits the original three films of George Lucas's space epic.

Movie music always a treasure

This album sparked off my interest in movie music. From the raiders march to exultate justi in empire of the sun which featured the young christian bale, this compilation is truly a treasured album that will take you through a cycle of movies that have graced the big screen. Any collaboration of the latter (Spielberg & Williams) have stood the test of time.I have heard different versions of these tracks by different orchestras and I have to say (IMHO) that I rate the Boston Pops with John Williams as the best. Happy listening!
