STAR WARS AND OTHER SCI-FI CLASSICS

This collection of popular excerpts from award-winning science fiction film scores brings together the spectacular compositions of some of the greatest American film composers of our time. John Williams’s eighty-odd scores have earned him more than 35 Academy Award nominations, five Oscars and six British Film Awards. The unparalleled box office success, Star Wars, has not only kept its place as the outstanding film of its genre but has inspired Williams’s near contemporaries to write ‘space music’. They include Laurence Rosenthal, Jerry Goldsmith and writer-producer Glen A. Larson, whose Battlestar Galactica and its TV sequels have proved enduringly popular.
