Summary
John Williams is the most successful composer in Hollywood history--he has received fifty Academy Award nominations, and the hundred-odd movies on which he has worked have grossed in excess of twenty billion dollars--not because he peddles the simplest possible material but because he presents easily grasped ideas with sophistication, skill, and unflagging invention. Orchestras like the Boston Pops, which Williams led from 1980 to 1993, find this music a pleasure to play, although it is not unchallenging. Musicians feel affection for Williams for another, more personal reason: his series of scores for Steven Spielberg and George Lucas in the 1970s and 1980s--including the ''Star Wars'' and ''Indiana Jones'' movies, ''Superman, '' ''Close Encounters, '' and ''E.T.''--are widely credited with helping to rescue the business of orchestral film music, which, circa 1975, was losing ground to pop-song soundtracks
