John Williams

John Towner Williams (born February 8, 1932) is an American composer, conductor, and pianist. Widely regarded as one of the greatest film composers of his time, he has composed some of the most popular, recognizable, and critically acclaimed film scores in cinematic history in a career spanning over six decades. Williams has won 24 Grammy Awards, seven British Academy Film Awards, five Academy Awards, and four Golden Globe Awards. With 52 Academy Award nominations, he is the second most-nominated individual, after Walt Disney. In 2005 the American Film Institute selected Williams's score to 1977's ''Star Wars'' as the greatest American film score of all time. The Library of Congress also entered the ''Star Wars'' soundtrack into the National Recording Registry for being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".

Williams has composed for many critically acclaimed and popular movies, including ''Star Wars'', ''Schindler's List'', ''Close Encounters of the Third Kind'', ''Superman'', ''E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial'', the ''Indiana Jones'' series, the first two ''Home Alone'' films, the first two ''Jaws films'', the first two ''Jurassic Park'' films, ''Hook'', and the first three ''Harry Potter'' films. Williams has also composed numerous classical concertos and other works for orchestral ensembles and solo instruments. He served as the Boston Pops's principal conductor from 1980 to 1993 and is its laureate conductor. He has been associated with director Steven Spielberg since 1974, composing music for all but five of his feature films. Other works by Williams include theme music for the 1984 Summer Olympic Games, ''NBC Sunday Night Football'', "The Mission" theme used by NBC News and Seven News in Australia, the television series ''Lost in Space'' and ''Land of the Giants'', and the incidental music for the first season of ''Gilligan's Island''. Williams was inducted into the Hollywood Bowl's Hall of Fame in 2000, and received a Kennedy Center Honor in 2004 and the AFI Life Achievement Award in 2016. He has composed the score for two of the top 20 highest-grossing films at the U.S. box office (adjusted for inflation). Provided by Wikipedia
