John Williams - Live in Vienna: Live Edition (2CD)

The chart-topping album, John Williams in Vienna, captures a moment of musical history: his conducting debut with the internationally-renowned orchestra, just weeks before his 88th birthday. Taking to the podium in the stunning Golden Hall of the Vienna Musikverein, Williams conducted a variety of pieces from his remarkable 60-year career, including ‘Imperial March’ from Star Wars, ‘The Flight To Neverland’ from Hook, the suite from Jaws and excerpts from Close Encounters Of The Third Kind. The recording propelled John Williams into the Top 10 of the pop charts in Germany, Austria and Japan, and topped the classical charts in the US, the UK, Japan and Australia. It also gave the composer his highest ever chart entry in Germany and became his best-selling album of recent years.

Critics have been united in their acclaim for John Williams in Vienna. “The music swoons, marches and goes to war with Williams’s usual combination of sparkling swagger and lyrical finesse,” observed The Times (London) in its review. “Just close your eyes and dream.”
