Lincoln is the latest product of John Williams’ historic, 40-year collaboration with Steven Spielberg, during which he’s composed the music for all but one of the director's feature films. A legend among movie composers, Williams has written some of the best-known scores in film history in a career that began more than five decades ago. His work includes the music for all of the Star Wars and Indiana Jones films, the first three Harry Potter films, Jaws, Superman, E.T. The Extra-terrestrial, Schindler’s List, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Memoirs of a Geisha, and Jurassic Park. Williams has won five Academy Awards, four Golden Globe Awards, seven BAFTA Awards and no fewer than 21 Grammy Awards – a breathtaking lifetime’s achievement. His total of 47 Academy Award nominations makes him the Academy’s most-nominated living person and has been exceeded only by Walt Disney. Williams also has written numerous acclaimed works for the concert hall, and serves as Conductor Laureate of the Boston Pops Orchestra and Artist in Residence at Tanglewood.

5/5 Master at Work, John Williams... that is all you need to know!
