AllMusic Review by

One of the greatest film composers of all time, John Williams has crafted some of the most recognizable scores in cinema history. Paying tribute to the master, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra takes listeners on a tour of the composer's iconic work on Movie Legends: The Music of John Williams. Featuring the themes to classic films like Jaws, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Jurassic Park, and Close Encounters of the Third Kind, the album provides listeners with just a taste of Williams' stellar body of work, hitting some of the high points with some themes that should be easily identifiable by even the most casual movie fan. With 49 Academy Award nominations to his name, it's hard to fully capture Williams' greatness in just 14 tracks, but with a solid performance and track selection, Movie Legends: The Music of John Williams makes a commendable attempt.
