For the score of Munich, which tells the true story of the Israeli athletes massacred at the 1972 Munich Olympics by Palestinian terrorists, Steven Spielberg tapped longtime collaborator John Williams. From the outset, Williams summons a forlorn mood, nesting the haunting, wordless vocals of Lisbeth Scott in a bed of moaning strings on the ominous opening

This is a fantastic piece of music! I really enjoy hearing Lisbeth Scott's vocals and the other soloists such as Steve Erdody on cello. And I look forward to hearing the Boston Pops String Sections play "Hatikvah" or "A Prayer for Peace" at Tanglewood this summer. This score is very emotional because of its intensity in the slow, somber pieces of music. The scherzo's in 7/8 time or the dissonant sounds also have intensity/build up, but really only fill in the mood of certain scenes in the film, as Williams does perfectly always! It must have been a great experience for the LA Recording Arts Orchestra to play this music for a great composer.

"Munich" features some of the best film music of the year.The score is powerful, intense,and quite haunting.It is brilliantly performed by the LA Recording Arts Orchestra under the master's superb baton.This is his best work since "Saving Private Ryan".

In a very storied career, 2005 may be his finest. Star wars, geisha, war of the worlds and munich. Anyone would be happy to have one on their resume. JW is in my humble opinion the greatest film composer ever!

John Williams has done it again. He combines Schindler's List, Amistad and Saving Private Ryan. It is also a wonderful movie, too. Please enjoy Lisabeth Scott for her wonderful vocals.
