     Harry Dempsey: John Williams and the Leitmotif

    In the 1970s, John Williams was the spearhead of a renaissance in the classical movie music compositional techniques which had been used in the1930s by Max Steiner and others of the era. Like Richard Wagner and Steiner, Williams utilized a full lyric symphonic orchestra, stirring emotional music that mirrored the ethos of the action on the screen and the return of and extended use of leitmotifs. In film music the most recognizable leitmotif is the John Williams two note representation of the shark in Jaws.
