The story of film music would be different without him: John Williams. Cinema classics like Star Wars , Indiana Jones and Harry Potter are inextricably linked to his soundtracks. There are unforgettable, radiant themes, an impressive variety of moods and sounds and at the same time the composer’s unmistakable handwriting. John Williams is now making his debut as a conductor with the Berliner Philharmoniker. The program includes some of the most famous scores of his work – and thus the film music in general.
