Song of the Day #2088

Song of the Day: Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny (“Helena’s Theme”) [YouTube link], composed and conducted here by the great John Williams, is from one of two of Williams’s film scores nominated tonight at the 66th Annual Grammy Awards for “Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media” (the other being his score from “The Fabelmans“). This lovely cue, featuring German violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter, is original to this installment of the Indiana Jones franchise and is Grammy-nominated for “Best Instrumental Composition” (and it won!). The film’s original score earned John Williams his 54th Oscar nomination. Today begins a five-day tribute to John Williams’s iconic musical canon.
