john williams competition

Any John Williams fan will tell you that one of the hardest questions they can be asked is "which one piece from John Williams is your absolute favourite?"  It's such a difficult question to answer, mainly because of course the maestro has written so many wonderful and memorable masterpieces.

However if we tweak the question slightly and ask "name one of your favourite pieces from John Williams?" then that's not so bad as its not asking for your all time favourite and that's exactly what we're going to ask you here on The Bearded Trio.  We want to know some of your favourite John Williams tracks.

The best answer will win a copy of the two CD "John Williams Soundtracks" performed by the The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.  The two disc compilation features some of John Williams' classics such as E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, Raiders of the Lost Ark and Jurassic Park but it also features some not so well known pieces such as JFK, The Poseidon Adventure and Presumed Innocent.  Here's the track listings from the two discs:

  14. The Towering Inferno: Main Titles

Disc: 2
  1. JFK: Arlington / End Titles

  11. The Poseidon Adventure: Prelude
  12. Born On The Fourth Of July: End Credits
  13. Presumed Innocent: End Titles
  14. Dracula: Main Titles & Storm

So to be in with a chance of winning this awesome soundtrack collection just:

Tell us one of your favourite John Williams pieces and why.  

Post your answers either below, on our Facebook page or Twitter page.  You can enter as many times as you like but each entry has to be a different answer.

Closing date is Sunday 24th September, 4pm GMT.  The competition is open worldwide.  We will select the best answer and will contact the winner for a postal address so we can get the CD in the post within the week.  We cannot substitute the prize or be responsible for loss in the post.

  2. Such a hard choice, I've grown up listening to these scores! A personal fave of mine though is Bugs and Secret Tunnels from the Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom score. It's such a visual treat! How JW can convey billions of writhing bugs and caving ceilings using music is just magic. Never fails to get my heart racing and tongue quoting! We.are.going.to.DIE!

  3. Oh wow - so many good ones. I'll pick The City in the Clouds today. ESB is my favourite picture, and this track has it all. Pathos, wonder, excitement - starts with Luke and Yoda on Dagobah, then swells into Leia's theme. There's menace and danger and beauty - and Boba Fett.
