NPR Interviews John Williams, Talks About His Approach to Making Movie Scores

Posted on Monday, December 10th, 2012 5:54 PM by Scott Jentsch

Album Cover ArtNPR featured an interview with famed composer John Williams, who was done more memorable movie scores (the music that plays during a movie) than most others combined. You may not know his name, but you know his work the moment you hear a few notes from movie franchises such as Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter, and Jurassic Park, just to name a few. A few iconic notes from Jaws, and you'll think twice about swimming in the ocean!
