'STAR WARS' AT 40: MUSICAL EXCELLENCE!


At the famous EMI recording studios of Anvil Studios, Denham, John Williams conducted score for the epic Death Star battle, brought to vivid, dizzying and exciting life by the renowned London Symphony Orchestra, is mixed and recorded, part of ninety minutes of music score recorded across fourteen intense and wonderful sessions in March 1977, that would surprise, thrill and delight George Lucas, now truly seeing his artistic entertainment vision come to life via Williams' superb themes and sweeping romanticism, watching and hearing alongside Gary Kurtz and Carrie Fisher (who attended at least one day of the recording and was notably played back the Princess Leia theme by a very happy Lucas).

Mark Hamill recalls the original score: http://variety.com/2018/film/news/mark-hamill-on-star-wars-music-composer-john-williams-1202659494/
