Mari 279 Posted November 15, 2013 Share Posted November 15, 2013 Nice interview here When we asked him for at least three film scores that he’d like to be remembered for, one of John’s picks was a surprise. “I always remember certain passages in ‘Close Encounters…’ that I particularly enjoy playing with orchestras, away from film, so that may be indicative of something.” He added, “And several movements of ‘Star Wars’ I also continue to have interest in as a performer. I did a television version of ‘Jane Eyre’ years ago (1970), directed by Delbert Mann. I wrote that new score in London many years ago. I have continued to enjoy revisiting that. So, in my case, that’s been a good measure of what I like that I have done in the past. If I don’t pick it out of the library and don’t want to perform it, it means that I don’t particularly want to return to it.” One of the thrills of my life is that he revisited Jane Eyre when I saw him in Chicago in 2005.
