Settling the Scores


@cal body 2 no indent:Everyone knows that John Williams wrote the music to Star Wars. But very few are aware that Conrad Pope also had a hand in that classic soundtrack. Pope was the one who translated Williams’ ideas into a language that the orchestra could understand. Dozens of other movies (including the Harry Potter films and King Kong) also bear Pope’s imprint. “I try to help composers be the best they can be,” he says. “I make no pretensions; this isn’t art music. But it can be mighty exciting. And it can contribute to a great experience in the theater.”
