Family Plot OST Soundtrack John Williams Importación
Descripción del producto
In 1976, director ALFRED HITCHCOCK capped a stunning half-century career as the master of suspense with his final motion picture, Universal's comedy-thriller FAMILY PLOT. JOHN WILLIAMS was selected from a host of composers (since HITCHCOCK's collaboration with BERNARD HERRMANN had ended a decade earlier) due to his growing reputation and the enormous commercial and critical success of his soundtrack for JAWS. It was assumed that WILLIAMS's soundtracks following JAWS would be put on general release, but this score didn't have it's deserved commercial exposure until this Limited Edition in 2010

All this being said, as it turns out, this isn't essential John Williams. As is often the case, much of it is the same couple of themes recycled over and over, differently orchestrated upon each reappearance. The score does incorporate the use of what sounds like an electronic organ for many of the themes, which gets very old very fast.
To sum up, it is great to have one of the missing links in the Williams soundtrack discography. Too bad about the steep price, though. All in all, not quite worth it.
Fans of Williams will recognize techniques/melodies that the composer utilized in the "Lost in Space" episode "Mr. Nobody" and will get a future "peek" at what will be heard in "Close Encounters of the Third Kind," "The Witches of Eastwick," A.I., Artificial Intelligence," and, to some degree, the "Harry Potter" films, among others.
The piece de resistance, no doubt, is, appropriately, the first cut: "The First Seance," a haunting number that sets up the character of the medium Blanche, played in the film by Barbara Harris. Using a female voice effectively as an "instrument," the tune captivates and transports the listener to a heavenly place.
The song is a true gem in Williams' line of successful melodies.
