- Program Note from publisher

The music of John Williams has been closely connected to outer space for generations of science fiction fans. Especially noteworthy has been his close association with the Star Wars franchise of movies in the space opera world created by George Lucas. Williams' work on the series includes scores for nine feature films. These count among the most widely known contributions to modern film music, featuring an assortment of 50 recurring musical themes to represent characters and other plot elements: one of the largest caches of themes in the history of film music. Williams composed the score for the children’s adventure film SpaceCamp in 1986. Many consider the score an underrated Williams gem: elegant, exciting, and containing that sense of child-like wonder that only he could bring to a project like this. Composed and conducted by John Williams in 1982, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial won the Academy Award for Best Original Score and a Grammy Award for Best Score Soundtrack.
