    I recently and finally bought it, I'll repeat that I love this re-recording very much, much more than the original 2LP OST presentation of the score.

    GerateWohl got a reaction from Will in Which are the last 2 John Williams scores that you personally consider to be "masterpieces"?   
    Why not? If you consider all those people around us calling themselves artists claiming that all their creative output is some kind of art, how could you think, that any of the music written by John Williams is not art? What's art music then, contemporary art music, and why is Williams' music not art?

    HM. Maybe the term "masterpiece" is particularly overrated. I would say, John Williams is a master of his craft and hardly any other living and active fulfills such high standards with each of his recent scores. Therefore, I would subscribe that each of his works from the past 30 years is a masterpiece, which just means for me a work fulfilling highest standards of film music composition.

    Yes, it is like Anne Sophie Mutter said, there is brillant classical music and bad classical music, same applies to movie scores.

    JW has 11 scores on the AFI 250 best scores list.
     
    Star Wars
    Superman
    E.T.
    Jaws
    CE3K
    The Cowboys 
    Raiders of the lost ark
    Schindler's List
    Witches of Eastwick
    Harry Potter 1
    A.I.
     
    On their "25" best scores list, JW is the most represented composer, with these three:
     
    Star Wars (#1)
    Jaws (#6)
    E.T. (#14)
     
    As a proud X, my personal one is E.T. of course, followed by Star Wars.
     
    Now, the two latest masterpieces...
     
    The Force Awakens and The Phantom Menace.

    Isn't that more because he's still alive? I thought these cultured elite people always needed 150+ years to realise something is great.

    GerateWohl reacted to TownerFan in JW is writing a new violin concerto for Anne-Sophie Mutter - "Violin Concerto No. 2"   
    Williams' deep love of Claude Thornhill is well known, as he mentioned him as the source of inspiration also for Heartwood and one of the movements of the Conversations piano suite. I think it's almost moving to see JW keeping his passion for what he loved as a youngster so much alive even in this late phase of his artistic life. He's definitely an artist very much in tune with the deepest parts of his soul.

    Nice and to my mind very typical Herrmann score from 1967 with a beautiful song and a cute moog synthesizer teasing the orchestra from time to time. Like a lot of later Herrmann scores it contains a lot of harmonic traces of Marnie and Vertigo.

    This score is a wonderful gift to us Herrmann afficandos. The score is like a lost score and now discovered.

    Same here. I really liked Prisoners (except for the ending), but have not been impressed with Arrival or his Blade Runner sequel. Of course, I will definitely watch it (at home) but I expect a 'not bad but not good either' movie. I really hope I'm wrong.

    It's no secret, that generalizing is the shortcut to develop some kind of taste and opinions instead of laboriously gathering knowledge and experience.
