5.0 out of 5 stars Now I know what maestro means Feb. 8 2013
By E. Buhser - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was thirteen when Star Wars hit the theaters and every part of it blew my mind away. I can't not cry when I hear the bicycle chase music from ET. Who among people my age doesn't do the hand motions along with the five notes from Close Encounters? The man has written the soundtrack to my youth, and listening to the delicate power of his music is a rejuvenating thalidomide to my soul. I think that the age of the symphony is long past. Can you name a current composer that has written a symphony comperable in popularity to Mozart, Bethoven, Janecek? I can list the music from at least 10 films that John Williams has written. Do not miss this album.
