One of the greatest aspects of the original STAR WARS trilogy is John Williams's score. "Main Title/Rebel Blockade Runner" is the opening theme to EPISODE 4: A NEW HOPE, and it begins with an unmistakable, powerful brass fanfare. As the piece develops, Williams introduces many of the leitmotifs that he will use later in the picture. This exciting overture foreshadows the galactic struggle that will take place and anticipates the triumph of the tale's heroes (Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and their comrades).
"The Imperial Attack" focuses on the power of the "Dark Side." Wagnerian brass figures bring both fervor and weight to this track. This music is truly menacing, and it effectively portends the wrath of Darth Vader. As the piece intensifies, the timpanist plays a steady series of blows, suggesting the Imperial pounding of rebel forces. "Cantina Band" is a much lighter piece, and this jovial Dixieland-in-space tune adds comic relief to the otherwise dense score. "Tales of a Jedi Knight/Learn About the Force" is a mysterious work that features Ravel-like swirling violins, distant harp glissandos, and the delicate wash of a celeste. The London Symphony Orchestra performs all of this music exquisitely, and, led by composer and conductor Williams, they give this cinematic classic a resoundingly memorable musical personality.
