A majestic and memorable score from John Williams gives this classic film a bigger-than-life aura that brings all the drama, emotion and imagination to the forefront. Paul Lavender's adaptation for band includes many of the score's themes.

- Program Note by publisher


Jurassic Park is a 1993 American science fiction adventure film directed by Steven Spielberg. The first installment of the Jurassic Park franchise, it is based on the 1990 novel of the same name by Michael Crichton, with a screenplay written by Crichton and David Koepp.

The film is set on the fictional Isla Nublar, an islet located off Central America's Pacific Coast, near Costa Rica, where a billionaire philanthropist and a small team of genetic scientists have created a wildlife park of cloned dinosaurs.
