An Amazing video on Hollywood Scores


This is one of the most unforgettble videos I have ever seen on Youtube. I watch it atleast once in a month. John williams compiled the best background scores in the history of Cinema into a single concert piece and performed it live in academy awards. The genius of John Williams is evident in the way he has connected all those brilliant pieces togather. I get goosepumps especially when John Williams makes his own Jaws theme as counter point to the Bernard Hermann's Psycho theme. Is anything of this sort possible for Indian Cinema? May be a Illayaraja can make a compilation from his own scores.

Can you let me know at what time the jaws+psycho theme comes?

Ramesh - It starts around 3:00 (as the time descends down from 5:18)
