John Williams: The Great Movie Soundtracks - Star Wars; Harry Potter; Indiana Jones; E.T.; Schindler's List; Jurassic Park & more / John Williams

Notes & Reviews:

A 4 CD extravaganza of John Williams' soundtrack and film score music joins the 12th batch of box sets released as a part of the Sony Classical Masters Series and provides a colossal reminder of Williams' prodigious breadth and ubiquity of his works in some of the most culture defining films of the recent Hollywood era. With a disc devoted to his Star War scores, and another to his orchestral works and Olympics inspired works; the collection also features popular orchestras and soloists including Yo-Yo Ma, Itzhak Perlman, the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic and more.

Notes & Reviews:

On this four-disc behemoth, some of the greatest hits of John Williams' career are presented in four themed sections. On the first and second discs, Williams' iconic collaborations with Steven Spielberg are highlighted, including the themes to Harry Potter, Indiana Jones, Jaws, E.T., Schindler's List, Jurassic Park, Empire of the Sun, and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. The third disc serves as a Star Wars best-of, covering dramatic scenes from the first six episodes of the series. The fourth disc is a collection of work Williams has done for public events, such as the 2009 U.S. Presidential Inauguration, the 1988 and 1996 Summer Olympics, and television news broadcasts. ~ Neil Z.
