Presenting my next film score essay–Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. There are fewer film music composers finer than John Williams.
This material was originally researched with the idea of creating a book but ultimately I decided individual essays were a better format. Also, gradually the essays became more focused on storytelling and emotion in music, rather than technical aspects. They’re informal works of music appreciation. This essay is number 5. Next is James Horner’s Glory.
