  1. 1993 Schindler’s List 2001 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone Of course, Williams has scored many truly great and excellent scores in between and afterwards, but I think Williams has written 10 scores that can be regarded as genuine ‘masterpieces’ and of those, Schindler’s List and the first Harry Potter scores are the last two.
  2. You’re responding to a post from 2005 (!), and you claim to come from the future (!!), but hell yeah: *I’m* the knob. 😆
  3. Well, the two songs are very similar melodically speaking. Part of the reason I’ve always prefered How Can I Remember, one of the best songs Williams ever wrote.
  4. Arlington, Garrison Family Theme and the Prologue. Also, the suite conducted by Keith Lockhart at Tanglewood 2010 was great! I know; I was there! 😇 More or less this wonderful arrangement:
  5. Starting with Daddy O in 1958 to the fifth film of the Indiana Jones franchise in 2022 (hopefully), Williams will have scored films in 8 different decades. I wonder if Williams is the first composer in history that has written film music over such a long period of time (64 years with the release of Indiana Jones 5) and the first who has produced a soundtrack score in 8 consecutive decades. Whatever the case, it is a testament to an incredible and impressive career (and Williams’ great health).
  6. This might be a bit harder and perhaps only for the die-hard Williams fans. How would you rank the 5 best Williams scores when you can't include any Star Wars entry, nor Indiana Jones, Jaws, Jurassic Park, E.T., Schindler's List, Close Encounters Of The Third Kind, Home Alone, Hook, Superman, Harry Potter, etc.? Mine would be: 1. Born On The Fourth Of July 2. Memoirs Of A Geisha 3. Seven Years In Tibet 4. Far And Away 5. Jane Eyre
  7. I think it helps if you take those additions into context. The piece was a very ambitious and sadly forgotten project. From the description: 'This special celebratory piece was written in 1994 and debuted in January 1, 1995 during a special television broadcast by NHK in Tokyo, a 3-hour special celebrating 1995's New Year Day. Seiji Ozawa conducted the Saito Kinen Orchestra in location, while soloists were here in different locations around the world: cellist Yo-Yo Ma performed his part in Boston, violinist Isaac Stern in Connecticut, the African Folk orchestra in Dakar (Africa), a
  8. Yes! Crappy sound quality, but this is amazing:
  9. I wish he would he would record the original version, with choir. That piece is one of his greatest undiscovered gems.
  10. I listen to the score a lot and I find it to be one of the greatest film scores ever written, by any composer.
  11. Not to nitpick, but if you want to list these in release order, Star Wars should be first instead of CE3K and Empire (1980) before Raiders (1981). My personal top 10 hasn’t changed much over the years: 1. Star Wars (1977) 2. E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial (1982) 3. Schindler’s List (1993) 4. Raiders Of The Lost Ark (1981) 5. Superman The Movie (1978) 6. The Empire Strikes Back (1980) 7. Jaws (1975) 8. Close Encounters Of The Third Kind (1977) 9. Jurassic Park (1993) 10. Harry Potter And The Sorcerer’s Stone (2001)
  12. Well, let's be honest: Morricone was a genuine innovator. Film scores for 'western films' were turned upside down by Ennio and he was way ahead of his time, including his haunting themes with wordless voices. I don't think anyone did that before him for this particular genre, so I totally understand your point.
