A spe­cial night for movie lovers at the Royal Al­bert Hall

TV Times - - Friday Highlights - John Wil­liams Film Prom

mu­sic / 8.00pm / BBC4

In any dis­cus­sion about the best film mu­sic of

all time – psy­cho to one side (which was Bernard Her­rmann) – John Wil­liams’s work is right up there. Those two omi­nous notes of jaws alone qual­ify him as one of the greats. But there’s also star Wars, ET, raiders of the Lost Ark, juras­sic park, su­per­man and the Harry Pot­ter films to add to the tally. It’s a body of work that has won Wil­liams five Os­cars, 23 Gram­mys and seven BAFTAS. In this Prom (recorded last night), the BBC Con­cert Or­ches­tra plays a wide se­lec­tion of the com­poser’s finest com­po­si­tions in his 85th year, and long-time col­league Keith Lock­hart con­ducts. With a ba­ton, we as­sume, not a lightsaber. HHHH sm
