Because he's long been stereotyped by the rousing neo-romantic adventure scores for the Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Jurassic Park franchises, it's easy to forget that composer John Williams is hardly idiomatically challenged. When Steven Spielberg gratifyingly used the clout of his enormous commercial success to produce and direct this brave Holocaust drama, his longtime musical collaborator used the opportunity to display both the depth and maturity of his musical gifts and training, producing a score with sad, evocative melodies frequently carried by the violin of the great Itzhak Perlman. Rich with ethnic nuance and showcasing the composer's masterful orchestral/choral subtlety, Williams's emotionally compelling score for Schindler's List also won the Academy Award for Best Dramatic Score. --Jerry McCulley

"The soundtrack is a tender and heart-wrentching integral part of the movie. Listening to it is evocative of images and feelings. Perlman's technical vertiosity is not tested by the simple lines, but his level of genius is necessary to make the lines weep. Astoundingly powerful."

"How can anyone not love Itzhak Perlman?? He plays the violin solo for this beautiful, heart-felt music.
Recently saw him in concert - he is a genius!!"
