I was rather surprised to learn the other night that Mr. Williams has won 5 Oscars as I have never been a fan. Also, there seems to be much love for him within the small community here that accepts original scores for movies as classical.
My question is, why is he so widely acclaimed within film score? What is his best work in your opinion?
I am trying to find how this love is born.
I have a hunch that simply being associated with Star Wars has lead to an acceptance based more on familiarity than production. Thoughts?
