Time for another visit to John Williams' extensive back catalogue and to the piece that was voted top of this years 'Classic FM Movie Music Hall of Fame'; The Theme from Schindler's List.

The recording I have chosen is one that was created by Williams' (and also conducts) virtuoso violinst Anne-Sophie Mutter.

Last week John Williams was awarded the Royal Philharmonic Society Gold Medal for introducing millions to orchestral music and for dedicating his life to ensuring orchestral music continues to speak to and captivate millions of people worldwide.

Previous winners of the award include Rachmaninoff, Strauss, Sibelius and Elgar.

with love,
