City Light Symphony Orchestra / Kevin Griffiths – Spotlight on John Williams 2CD
SPOTLIGHT ON JOHN WILLIAMS – a double album that shows the many facets of probably the most successful film music composer of all time with stirring recordings and well-known soloists. CD 1 features the well-known themes from “Jurassic Park”, “Harry Potter”, “Star Wars”, etc., played by a 90-piece orchestra specialising in film music and superbly captured in sound by the crew of Bauer Studio in Ludwigsburg. CD 2 presents solo works by the composer, interpreted by renowned classical artists such as Paul Meyer, Reinhold Friedrich, Valentine Michaud, etc. The programme is conducted by Kevin Griffiths, one of the most promising conductors of the young generation, for whom the outdated division into “serious” and “light” music simply does not exist.
