Song of the Day #2017

Song of the Day:  Schindler’s List (“Soundtrack Suite”) [YouTube link], composed by John Williams, offers some of the most heart-wrenching themes ever written by the maestro. The score for the 1993 Steven Spielberg-directed film, starring Liam Neeson, features the great Itzhak Perlman on violin. It was reported that when Williams first saw a rough cut of the film, he was so choked up that he told the director,”I really think you need a better composer than I am for this film.” Spielberg replied: “I know, but they’re all dead.” Given that tonight is the 65th Annual Grammy Awards, it should be noted that this Williams score won the Grammy Award for “Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media“. Williams has received 73 Grammy nominations over his illustrious career, winning 25.
