The Two Olympic Themes
Composed by John Williams

October 19, 2022 --

The 1984 theme is played by Bands of HM Royal Marines. LPR rediscovered the themes via You Tube when its Mac was unable to send and receive emails. This is an impressive rendition of the 1984 theme.

LPR was also impressed by the rendition of the 1988 Olympic theme under the direction of Maestro Gustavo Dudamel. LPR visitors will see that Maestro Williams was in the audience and clearly enjoyed this performance.

LPR, btw, has become entranced by the two Olympic themes by Maestro Williams, listen and understand.

Having presented in this LPR post the links to the Olympics themes composed by John Williams, here is a link to the 2016 AFI tribute to Maestro Williams. You will hear Steven Spielberg point out that during the span of 43 years he and Williams collaborated on 27 movies. btw -- this remarkable composer celebrated his 90th birthday this year.
