Star Wars - Score reduction and analysis

Hello,

Some time ago I made that score reductions and analysis of Yoda's Theme and The Throne Room like other scores are analyzed on FilmScoreAnalysis channel. I think that's very interesting to look and analyze some masterworks by John Williams and other composers.

 

 

 

I'm also working on analysis of Across The Stars and I will upload it at the end of the month. If you have any ideas what to do to make my analysis better, please, tell me. 🙂

 

 

Ps. And if you have any ideas what score should I analyze next also please, tell me.

 

Hi! It's a nice job, but I would suggest you to focus a bit more on the proof-reading stage: JW's music is very detailed and it's worth to get everything right.

 

For example, looking at your reduction of Yoda's Theme, I've noticed the following:

 

- bar 8, Celli: the third note is D, not D#;

- bar 13: the harmony is E minor, not Am7(9), check the high strings;

- bar 19, low strings: I think you mixed up alto clef (Viola) and bass clef (Celli) notation in the upper voice of that staff;

- bar 25, low strings: there should be F, not F#;

- bars 33-34: a prominent Horn line is missing from the reduction;

- bar 39: the highest note of the last chord in the fourth staff (bass clef) is D, not E;

- bars 51 and 53, high strings: the middle note of the 2nd, 4th, 6th, and 8th chords is G, not A (so the chord is C major, without 6th);

- bar 56, high strings: the middle note of the 3rd chord is C#, not D;

- bar 60, high strings: the 6th and 7th chords are incorrect.

 

This list is based on a first-reading impression, so there could be more things needing to be corrected. It's just to show that it is important to be very careful when typesetting scores!

Very nice analysis, @Score brought up some good things to consider for future analyses as well! 

 

I’m sure (considering your content) that you’ve heard of FilmScoreAnalysis on YouTube, but if not, you should totally check him out. He makes highly detailed reductions and very accurate analyses! 

 

I enjoyed your your video and enjoyed the little stories about Williams and his thoughts about the theme! 

 

I cant wait for more videos from you. You should do some Schindler’s List analyses.

Thank you, I was considering to do something from Shindler's List, but I decided to do Across The Stars. But I will do something from Shindler's List in the future also since there isn't any analyses from that movie on YouTube (or I can't find any)

Can’t wait to see the Across the Stars analysis!

Your channel and videos have a lot of potential, esp with SW9 coming out, I expect you’ll get more and more views!

And here's new video "Han Solo and The Princess":

Great choice! The originals are the best, esp ESB, just the score alone is beyond this world. 

 

Thank you! I’ve subscribed to your channel on multiple accounts!
