World blockbusters such as Star Wars, Jaws, E.T. – the Extra-Terrestrial, and the series of Indiana Jones movies, certainly would not be the same without the spectacular musical accompaniment written by the American composer John Williams. Arch-shaped melodies, captivating rhythms and rich, colourful instrumentation are typical features of his music. His emotive approach undoubtedly serves as a major inspiration for other great composers such as Hans Zimmer, Danny Elfman and others. The Czech National Symphony Orchestra can proudly call itself a “specialist” in Williams’ music. Proof of this can be seen in the dozens of film concerts featuring live symphony music as part of the Symphonic Cinema project held throughout Europe, culminating in a twice-sold-out screening of Jurassic Park at London’s Royal Albert Hall, as well as repeated requests on behalf of our audiences for Williams’ music to be performed at Hollywood Night concerts.
