We all know married couples who have been together for decades that stand the test of time and remain the perfect match. Well, John Williams and Star Wars have been together for 42 years! Out of the twelve films of the series, only 2 were soundtracked by people other than Steven Spielberg’s favourite composer (he was replaced by Kevin Kiner for The Clone Wars in 2008 and by Michael Giacchino for 2016’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story). This rare sort of intimate relationship between a composer and their subject matter allows for a thorough use of leitmotif, a technique especially used in Star Wars. After so many years spent working with them, certain melodic phrases that characterise a particular person or decor eventually gain varying degrees of complexity and subtlety. This is the case with Rey’s Theme, which aficionados may or may not recognise in certain scenes of The Rise of Skywalker. For John Williams’ “ultimate contribution” to the Star Wars franchise, he has cleverly and covertly brought together all the themes associated with the main characters of the saga onto this soundtrack, from Leia to Yoda via Darth Vader. In some scenes, Williams’ attitude appears to be that of an old friend who is rejoicing at the prospect of going back to characters that you may have lost track of over the years. Case in point: Lando Calrissian (played by Billy Dee Williams and who appeared for the first time in Episode V in 1980) makes his return, to the sound of a particularly joyous melody. This kind of friendly nod to fans lends the film a certain kind of humanity, where many would have considered it the product of pure consumerism. Of course, the majestic (Destiny of a Jedi), epic (Battle of the Resistance) and lyrical (The Force is With You) atmosphere reigns supreme and defines the essential dynamic of this music so iconic in today’s pop culture. This ninth film of the saga is a finale of sorts for John Williams, but The Rise of Skywalker also presented him with an unexpected debut: at 87 years old, he appears for the first time in one of the films with a cameo as Oma Tres, the bartender on planet Kijimi! © Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz

It was in the depths of her native Black Forest that Anne-Sophie Mutter first encountered John Williams’ music. The violinist recalls that there was not much else to do in that magical setting apart from play the violin, go for a walk, play football or go to the cinema. So in 1978, when Star Wars was released, the young girl discovered the existence of the man who was already a film score legend in Hollywood, largely thanks to Steven Spielberg’s Jaws. In this album, which includes new arrangements of some of John Williams’ iconic film music, she reinterprets excerpts from Georges Lucas’ saga, such as the lyrical piece Rey’s Theme from Episode VII, the mystical Yoda’s Theme, as well as Across the Stars, a melancholic romantic song from Star Wars: Attack of The Clones. Some of John Williams’ other great classics also feature on the album, including Hedwig’s Theme (which Mutter describes as “Harry Potter meets Paganini”), and Schindler’s List (whose solo violin part was originally played by the great Itzhak Perlman). Alongside these legendary pieces, the album also includes more original choices, such as an excerpt from the soundtrack of Tintin and the Secret of the Unicorn (the tense piece The Duel), as well as a glamourous waltz from Sabrina (Sydney Pollack’s remake of Billy Wilder’s famous film). Across the Stars was recorded at the Sony Pictures Scoring Stage in Hollywood, where so many iconic scores were born, from The Wizard of Oz and Lawrence of Arabia to Singin’ in the Rain and E.T., the latter unfortunately missing from this nevertheless vibrant and invigorating record. © Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz
