The name of composer John Williams has become virtually synonymous with motion picture music. His film career began in 1961 with the music for “The Secret Ways.” A master of every genre and emotional nuance, Williams has composed many of the most familiar themes in movie history, including “Jaws” and “Star Wars,” both of which earned him Academy Awards for Best Original Score.
