Ron Jones continues our long-form study of the score to John Williams’s Star Wars Suite. This episode begins in the fifth movement (“Throne Room”) and begins at measure 100.
Ron says: “We tear into the score, reverse engineer each part, learn how the various ensembles are functioning, and explore the practical and art and craft of it all. If there ever was a score worth tearing into, this baby is it. If you can’t learn things that really apply to your scoring and orchestration, check your pulse and see if you need to check into Forest Lawn. This is the stuff!”
