The Hallé - John Williams at 90: A Life in Cinema

As the great John Williams, the most Oscar-nominated person in history prepares for his 90th birthday, Stephen Bell, the Hallé and Hallé Choir celebrate this incredible composer and his symphonic legacy. ‘John is much more of a chameleon as a composer,’ says Steven Spielberg, ‘he reinvents himself with every picture.’ No one can match Williams’ ability to evoke the essence of a movie; the pain of Schindler’s List, the poignancy of Saving Private Ryan, the sheer adventure of Indiana Jones or the innocent, unbelievable excitement of E.T.. Every score tonight is from a great movie, made even greater by extraordinary music.

Including music from the Star Wars films; Close Encounters of the Third Kind; Jaws; Catch Me If You Can; Saving Private Ryan; Memoirs of a Geisha; Hook; Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark; Schindler’s List; JFK; E.T. the Extra Terrestrial; Amistad; Superman; Harry Potter and Jurassic Park
