When the first Star Wars film came out 40 years ago, film-maker George Lucas showed real nerve when he chose a strongly symphonic colour for the soundtrack, and picked out a composer who knew his classics (and his Wagner in particular). At the time, early electronic music was almost compulsory in science-fiction films. In 2017, the presence of John Williams in the opening credits of a Star Wars film doesn't have quite the same audacious feeling, and the thrill the audience feels when the prologue starts to roll derives mostly from the legendary status of both the music and its octogenarian writer. It has been asserted that in fact the real "last Jedi" in the film is John Williams! All the same, upon the release of this eighth episode, some voices have been raised (critic Michel Ciment's in particular) to insist that John Williams has served his time and that he should give way to a younger composer. But rather than getting bogged down in the question of "the age of the captain", we should look at the important thing: the score for this eighth work is very interesting. In particular, it shows up a fascinating dichotomy between the archetypal nature of the musical themes (very clearly illustrating a character or concept) and Williams's extremely subtle way of developing them, to say nothing of his indisputable skill with orchestration. Beyond the many epic pieces on this soundtrack, (The Battle of Crait, The Fathiers, etc.), special mention must go to the majestic Ahch-To Island, which sees a "retired" Luke Skywalker who wants to live out the rest of his days in peace and serenity. Moreover, listeners will be pleasantly surprised to find, nestled away within this remarkably written and well-controlled score, Canto Bight, a jazzy theme with a South American flavour (which at points pastiches Brazil), with a steel drum section! This is a piece which proves that John Williams is fully at ease with all musical genres and all orchestral colours. © NM / Qobuz

The stories of Father Williams

Director Steven Spielberg and composer John Williams just penned their new collaboration with The Post, the 29th out of the 31 full-length feature films made by the director of Jaws.

Bossa nova, the Eternal Wave

Since its creation in the late 1950s, Bossa-nova has become an indispensable part of Brazilian music. The style’s strong evocative power won over artists from all around the world and earned recognition for many first-rate musicians whose works are now seen as classics.

Queen: A Balanced Band

The film “Bohemian Rhapsody”, which was screening in cinemas in October 2018, is a reminder of what Freddie Mercury would always say: Queen isn’t just about him, it’s about a band of four exceptional individuals. This is exactly what Brian May and Roger Taylor (without John Deacon, who retired) have been trying to demonstrate since the death of their flamboyant singer on November 21, 1991.
