Editorial Reviews

A new collection honoring the 80th birthday of one of America's most distinctive and beloved musical voices with a selection of the composer's own personal favorites from film and television music to concert works to festive occasion pieces including performances by Itzhak Perlman, Yo-Yo Ma and the first commercial recording of Williams's joyous Happy Birthday Variations.

In a career spanning almost six decades, John Williams has composed some of the most popular film scores in the history of motion pictures; the Star Wars series, Jaws, the Indiana Jones films, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, Schindler's List, the first three Harry Potter films and many more. Winner of twenty-one Grammy® Awards, four Golden Globe awards and five Academy Awards®, Williams is easily the most successful composer working in film today. From his music from Jaws through his latest score for the critically acclaimed War Horse, A Tribute to John Williams An 80th Birthday Celebration is a collection of brilliant music from one of America's most brilliant composers.

"John has transformed and uplifted every movie that we ve made together." Steven Spielberg

"Every fan of Star Wars and of great music is in his debt." George Lucas

I've been a John Williams fan for years, and this collection is a nice mix of some old favorites, and some new gems from my favorite movie music master.

The title says it all, the man and his music are
simply the best. He is without a doubt one of the
finest American composers that ever lived!

An excellent and enjoyable performance. John Williams continues to excel in his eighties. What an incredible experience to see him conduct in person!

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.

In our home, any music Mr. Williams directs is a favorite. What a talent. This CD is a beautiful reminder of his vast work and influence. And...even the familiar tune, Happy Birthday To You, will never be heard quite the same again. :-) Delight-filled...to the max!

Outstanding collection of work by this master. I cannot compare this CD to his others, but this collection is an excellent gift for yourself. Note that the "Birthday" aspect of this collection actually is a birthday orchestral piece. I could live without it but will still give this work a 5 star rating.
