Product Description

 

Over the 90-year history of sound film, there have been a handful of instances where a director and a composer have formed a longtime partnership that resulted in a series of classical scores, creating music that stands the test of time. None, however, have been as long or as fruitful as the 43-year collaboration of Steven Spielberg and John Williams. None have encompassed such a wide range of subject matter or, more significantly, have had such an enormous impact on worldwide popular culture. From the ominous shark signature of Jaws to the five-note alien greeting of Close Encounters of the Third Kind; from the heroic march of Raiders of the Lost Ark to the moving themes for Schindler’s List – the music Williams has written for more than two dozen Spielberg projects has not only served them brilliantly but entered the wider public consciousness.

Twenty-five years ago, Sony Classical began charting the Spielberg-Williams collaboration, recording two discs of their greatest hits. For this new release, John Williams & Steven Spielberg: The Ultimate Collection, these two CDs, The Spielberg/Williams Collaboration and Williams on Williams: The Classic Spielberg Scores, are included along with newly arranged and recorded material from the past two decades of their additional movie scores, The Spielberg/Williams Collaboration Part III, and a newly filmed bonus DVD documentary film, Steven Spielberg & John Williams: The Adventure Continues.

With a record fifty Academy Award® nominations (more than any other composer) Williams has demonstrated, again and again, his ability to connect with audiences, both in the movie theater and in the concert hall. Seventeen of those nominations, and three of Williams’ five Oscar® wins (Jaws, E.T. and Schindler’s List) have been for Spielberg films. The sheer variety of music, the depth of compositional skill on display, the powerful emotions that it evokes, makes John Williams & Steven Spielberg: The Ultimate Collection an extraordinary accomplishment. This is the work of one of America’s greatest composers, inspired by the work of one of America’s greatest filmmakers.
