Film composer John Williams celebrated his 90th birthday in February 2022. With five Oscars and a stunning 52 Oscar nominations, he is an iconic figure who has written numerous scores for adventure films that have become classics in their genre. This programme features some of Williams’s greatest hits, such as the plaintive violin melody from Schindler’s List, the upbeat main title from E.T., wizarding music from Harry Potter and, of course, from a galaxy far, far away, the music of Star Wars.
The length of the concert is about 2 h. Intermission.
