If John Williams lived in the 1800's would we know him as a classical composer.

I would give this a 100% yes.

tintin - Snowy's Theme, a near perfect emulation of the Shostakovitch Piano Concerto in F and Prokofiev concerto in C. Compare it and see for yourself.

the opera feature track - a near perfect emulation of early Bizet The track before that has an incredible mancini sound.

how fortunate we were to have this album.

Hmmm, I've never heard the Shostakovich or the Prokofiev (looking them up now), but the opera feature was not written by John Williams. It was written by Charles Gnoud and Rossini.

EDIT: If you're speaking about the opening bars of the Shostakovich, I wouldn't call it a "near perfect emulation." There are some similarities, but it also sounds very much like it was written in John Williams' style.

I will say that this piano concerto is gorgeous...thanks for bringing it to my attention!
