John Williams

Recommended Posts

I have recently been studying up on this great composer’s work lately, quite frankly it is his great work that has me so deeply endeared to the films he has scored such as Jaws, Star Wars, Indian Jones, and Jurassic Park to name just a few big ones. You might be surprised to know that he is the second most nominated person in Academy Awards history with 49 behind Walt Disney's 59. Forty-four of Williams' Oscar nominations are for Best Original Score and five are for Best Original Song. He won four Oscars for Best Original Score and one for Best Scoring: Adaptation and Original Song Score (Fiddler on the Roof).

So you may or may not know of him, you can enter his name in a youtube search and spend hours upon hours immersed in his splendorous arrangements.

John just celebrated his 83rd birthday last month.
