STAR WARS Main Titles (Orchestral Reduction by tomekkobialka - Film Score Special)

Description

pf: London Symphony Orchestra cond/ John Williams Track begins at 0:22. Music composed by John Williams for the 1977 movie "Star Wars". I made this reduction for fun a few months ago, just because I was interested in seeing how this piece of music was orchestrated. Eventually I thought I would share it for everybody else's enjoyment, especially in advance of "The Force Awakens", the 7th film installment in the Star Wars franchise. As with Grieg's Peer Gynt suite, I decided to voice some tutti chords separately, which would be too complex to properly label on the reduction (these are labelled and referenced with encircled numbers). The voicings can be downloaded here as a pdf file: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/18637418/star%20wars%20voicings.pdf This piece is very complex (almost as complex as the Poem of Ecstasy!) so I am sure there are a few mistakes to be found. This is only meant to be as a guide, not as a definite reference. If you want to make sure that everything's correct, get the full score! ERRATA: Bar 3 - Harp glissando should have Db Bar 8 to 9 - Ignore Bb tremolo on third staff
