Star Wars Medley

John Williams/arr. James H. Burden

 

The brilliant musical score for Star Wars, composed by John Williams, is full of high adventure and soaring spirits in keeping with the character of the film itself. Themes for each of the characters appear in a variety of permutations determined by the dramatic action as it unfolds on the screen. For Star Wars Medley, arranger James H. Burden has chosen representative portions of both the main and end titles, using their major themes to fashion what might be more suitably titled an overture. This faithful transcription to the medium of concert band retains all the fire and excitement, rension and exuberance of the original score.
