A Hong Kong Phiharmonic Orchestra plays Films Scores of Steven Spielberg's motion pictures.

Steven Spielberg, 28, young obscure TV director had just completed his first theatric feature Sugarland Express in 1974. knowing that the importance of theme music to the film, asked the studio to meet John Williams, who was only 40 years old, well established on his career, but nothing known to the film audience as a music composer. That was how they started their music creation for Steven‘s film. John is an American, a great Guitarist, pianist, conductor and Music Composer, has composed some of the most influential and recognizable film scores in the history of Motion pictures, since 70’s
Amongst them, which I like most in sequential order, Indianan Jones, Jaws, Superman…
Well, I had a great chance to listen to this concert as a tribute to John Williams, conducting the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra by Richard Kaufman.
More than that, I had an good friend that bought me the seat located about the centre of the Sweet spot of HK Culture Centre Music Hall.
We had many more great film scores beside those best three I like… what a wonderful evening!

The Man who was holding the Light sword in the middle is the Conductor, Richard Kaufman.
