There is little doubt to any one who appreciates film music that John Williams is the consummate master in his field. Williams is one of the greatest living composers today and has set the standard for those who have tried to follow in his footsteps over the last 50 years. With over 125 films to his credit and at the age of 81, Williams continues working today, and has formed many collaborative bonds with notable directors over the decades. His most celebrated bond, of course, would be his work with director Steven Spielberg. 26 films later and the two friends are still making beautiful music today, with Williams recently collaborating on last year’s Oscar winning Lincoln.

With 48 Oscar nominations (and 5 wins) Williams is the most nominated person alive today in Oscar history and 2nd all-time behind Walt Disney. With his career not stopping anytime soon, Williams will ensure that mark will never be matched. »
