Product Description


Because he's long been stereotyped by the rousing neo-romantic adventure scores for the Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Jurassic Park franchises, it's easy to forget that composer John Williams is hardly idiomatically challenged. When Steven Spielberg gratifyingly used the clout of his enormous commercial success to produce and direct this brave Holocaust drama, his long-time musical collaborator used the opportunity to display both the depth and maturity of his musical gifts and training, producing a score with sad, evocative melodies frequently carried by the violin of the great Itzhak Perlman. Rich with ethnic nuance and showcasing the composer's masterful orchestral/choral subtlety, Williams's emotionally compelling score for Schindler's List also won the Academy Award for Best Dramatic Score. --Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars Devastating March 14 2014

I remember how silently the audience filed out of the movie theatre that night. As a thoughtful Christian it has haunted me ever since.

when it is raining, forgive me, not raining, but pouring outside, it's cold, you are all alone at home, just thinking about your past and or present lover, your job troubles or whatever ails you in your life, for 1 hour, 4 minutes and 31 seconds, you can forget all about that temporarily and then when you return to the real world, you'll be ready for it

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply magnificent. Best soundtrack so far. Jan. 15 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I myself am a violinist. I remembered in eighth grade, my school orchestra chose Schindler's List as one of our pieces for a big performance. When I read and played the notes on my violin, I was shocked at how magnificent this piece was. It was so touching that I nearly cried in front of the entire orchestra!
When I went home and told my parents about this, my mother gave me our Schindler's List Soundtrack (I never knew we had one) and I listened to it. It was marvelous. It was so incredibly beautiful but so depressing, depressing to the point where the melancholy just melts your heart. When I heard the famous Itzhak Perlman's violin solos, I wish so badly that I am just as skilled and talented as he is (Unfortunately, I'm not. I've only been promoted to 1st violin just recently).
I loved all the songs in there, but when I heard Remembrances with Itzhak Perlman (track 13), I couldn't help it. I had to cry. And I actually thought that it was not just any sad feeling, but it really feels like as though I'm trying to remember something very personal that I had forgotten for a long time.
Do yourself a favor and at least listen to this track.

5.0 out of 5 stars a low-key gem May 2 2004
Format:Audio CD
I give this soundtrack 4 1/2 stars. Occasionally a few of the tracks that worked excellently with the movie and weaved the right atmsophere, are somewhat bland when listened to apart from the film, for example the long piece "Schindler's Workforce". But this is only a minor criticism that should not be emphasized. As a whole, this is a super piece of work from the greatest living composer today, John Williams, who gave us the musical themes of ET, Superman, Star Wars, and countless other tunes that we've all heard and loved. My favorite piece on this "Schildler's List" soundtrack is the memorable and sad opening theme. It's a little classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Score From an Equally Amazing Movie Nov. 8 2003
Format:Audio CD
John William's efforts to the "Shindler's List" score are wonderful. Though known for scoring movies like "Jaws" and "Star Wars", he proves he can also score powerdramas. His music follows the movie's theme and its scenes exactly. On the album alone, the listener can feel the characters' trauma in the movie. Some may cry as a result. Williams every note is amazing. His mixture of instruments, mostly orchestral, gives every piece his originality. Though most tracks follow "Theme From Schindler's List", they still offer their own theme. Violin soloist Itzhak Perlman offers his own emotional setting with his amazing talents. Such genius efforts earned John Williams the Oscar for Best Original Score. "Shindler's List Soundtrack" is great for those who like orchestral and/or emotional music. This album will give the added movie experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Schindler's List Nov. 3 2003
Format:Audio CD
John Williams completed this wonderful score with compassion and with all of his heart. The music is so moving and embracing. The themes take the listener back to WWII to feel the pain and anguish that the people in the concentration camps went through. John Williams did a excellent job on this composition.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Schindler" score's simplicity will make you weep Sept. 14 2003
Format:Audio CD
One of the most powerful movies made in the last 15 years, Steven Spielberg's Schindler's List gave John Williams a chance to eschew his normally operatic style in film scoring and to prove that simplicity and restraint can add more power to a film than a huge symphonic score. Instead of choosing heavy brooding Nazi-style marches or heroic Indiana Jones-like themes for the various characters, Williams chose instead to go for a subdued style, using solo piano, children's choirs, and poignant violin solos by the great Itzhak Perlman to underscore the horrors of the Holocaust and the eventual humanization of Oskar Schindler.
Williams' "Theme from Schindler's List" is a poignant composition that has its roots in the musical style favored by Eastern European Jews. That Williams can write scores using forms and instrumentation used by other cultures is not surprising. Williams, after all, won his first Academy Award for adapting the music from Broadway's "Fiddler on the Roof" for the movie version, and his score for Ron Howard's "Far and Away" employs Irish melodic forms quite effectively. The "Theme" is hauntingly beautiful, and it matters not whether it's performed by the entire Boston Symphony, a solo pianist, or Perlman on violin.
Another lovely yet melancholic piece is "Remembrances," which appears twice on this CD.
"Immolation (With Our Lives, We Give Life)" is a moving, keening choral piece, while "Oyf'n Pripetshok and Nacht Aktion" mingles a traditional Jewish song and original Williams material to underscore the Germans' "cleansing" of the Krakow Ghetto.
