Simone Pedroni John Williams: Themes And Transcriptions For Piano
Release Date: July 7, 2017
Label: Varese Sarabande
Simone Pedroni is a brilliant classical pianist and Van Cliburn Award-Gold Medal winner. John Williams is of course the best-selling composer of our time. Both Williams and Pedroni each arranged about half of material on this album, which premieres Williams' own piano suites from Lincoln, and The Book Thief, plus Pedroni’s own special transcriptions of music from Harry Potter, Star Wars, Schindler’s List and more. The album is a stunning and unique presentation of John Williams’ film music, without the usual symphony orchestra.
