Program Notes

Williams has written the music to some of the most popular films of all time and dozens of his memorable themes have reached iconic status worldwide. Williams’ collaboration with Steven Spielberg continues, and the two collaborated once again in 2012 for the director’s highly anticipated biopic of Abraham Lincoln starring Daniel Day Lewis in the title role. For his original score to Lincoln, Williams drew on American musical influences from the Civil War era, combining them with his own inimitable sound to bring to life the atmosphere of the both the turbulent times surrounding the war and the warmth and humanity of the sixteenth president.

The present collection of music from the film includes several of the main themes, including an extended solo for the trumpet entitled With Malice Toward None after the immortal words from Lincoln’s second inaugural address. This particular collection of music from the film, arranged for band by Paul Lavender, was specially prepared for the Marine Band by Williams for their 2014 national concert tour.
