    They'll be great for teaching students how to write the best bits of Bruckner and Holst.

    Maybe; I'm just glad Williams never wasted his time adding to the sum total of torture-by-opera. He gets a thumbs-up from me just for that...and the theme to Indiana Jones and Superman.

    This suggests that if Bruckner and Holst had studied John Williams, they would have had more good bits.

    No. He donated his collection of scores, not a collection of his John Williams scores.
