Recorded with composer and conductor John Williams and The Recording Arts Orchestra of Los Angeles, the deluxe edition disc features iconic themes from the luminary composer and conductor’s film scores – including works from Star Wars, Harry Potter, Schindler’s List and more …
“I have been inspired by John Williams, one of the world’s greatest composers, since I was a teenager …” Anne-Sophie has this week told The Violin Channel.
“His iconic themes are real Leitmotivs and are masterpieces … I feel a deep emotional and intellectual connection to his music – and having this opportunity to record them is a lifelong dream come true … ” she has said.
”I want the listener to travel with me to new galaxies and immerse themselves in a repertoire that has excited and moved audiences around the world for generations … may the force of music always be us and elevate and unify us!”
