    Top 5 favorite JW tracks

    5) Hymn for the Fallen -- This is just so haunting and beautiful. A true Hymn to those who have the ultimate sacrifice. 4) Raider's March -- Fun, fast paced 3) Summon the Heroes --The track that got me into JW music 2) Jurassic Park theme - Pure majesty 1) Duel of the Fates -- I personally think this is one of JWs finest works
  4. I read somewhere that: Tim always looked up to his next door neighbor when he was younger. But, he could never see over the fence and see his whole face. So, Wilson is just a visual gag on that.

    What is the last piece of classical music you listened to?

    I was watching a video on YouTube about making decorative candles. (It's what one does at 4:30 AM). ANYWAY, The had the 1812 Overture playing as the artist worked on the candle. Now, The 1812 is one of the pieces that got me (then a young kid) into classical music. I mean... CANNONS. So I'm listening to it, just about ready to geek out to the finale, and it stops dead. So, here's what I listened to last, with a link to one of my favorite recordings of it. Conducted by the late, great, Erich Kunzel.
  6. Last year at the Hollywood Bowl concert, Spielberg came out for the second half as JW's guest. He went on to tell stories about working with JW. One of the things he talked about is what scenes were like without music. His example was the first five minutes of The Last Crusade. The music really does make a difference.

    BSO360 ep 3: Boston Pops retrospective

    It started out pretty rocky according to Wikipedia: Williams almost ended his tenure with the Pops in 1984.[67] Considered a customary practice of opinion, some players hissed while sight-reading a new Williams composition in rehearsal; Williams abruptly left the session and turned in his resignation. He initially cited mounting conflicts with his film composing schedule, but later admitted a perceived lack of discipline in, and respect from, the Pops' ranks, culminating in this latest instance. After entreaties by the management and personal apologies from the musicians, Williams withdrew his resignation and continued as principal conductor for nine more years.
  9. Better than Ghostbusters 2? Careful! I think Vigo heard you! You are like the buzzing of flies to him! 😋😄
  10. I listened to the first episode tonight. As someone who would love to hear/see a bio on JW, I can't wait to listen to all of these. Thank you @Trumpeteer

    Contacting John Williams?

    I've never seen this before. It's 4:40 AM, and I'm cracking up. I'm also impressed it worked!

    Best Christmas Music

    If you want a really good version of Joy to the World that doesn't do that, may I suggest Percy Faith? I find his orchestral Christmas songs to be respectful to the season, but also very powerful. If any of you have Sirius XM radio, there is a channel called Holiday Pops. This channel (it might only be available online at the moment) has classical Christmas music 24/7 now until Christmas Day. I hope I'm not beaking any forum rules by "plugging" this, I just think the channel is amazing.
  13. I'm not sure if this is the place to ask this, but I can't find any other topic that may fit this. Does anyone else hear any of The Firebird Suite by Stravinsky when JW is portraying Fawkes?

    New Here

    Hello all! I'm new here, and I love the Music of John Williams. Oddly enough for me, it wasn't his film work that got me hooked on him, but his work on the music for the 96 Olympics. Which, of course were composed for the 84 Los Angeles games. Anyway, thanks for creating an awesome page!
