Vienna Philharmonic: Main Theme From Star Wars



The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra plays the main theme from Star Wars during the annual Vienna Philharmonic Summer Night Concert at Schönbrunn Palace Gardens, on June 8, 2010, before an estimated audience of 100,000 people. With Franz Welser-Möst conducting, this piece was part of a tribute to "Moon, Planets and Stars."

I am putting this on for my nine-year-old son, a big far of Star Wars and all things space and planetary, and for others who enjoy the film series. Admittedly, I number among the fans of the space opera film series that George Lucas created, numbering six episodes between 1977 and 2005. John Williams, the great American composer, wrote the score, the main theme music associated with Star Wars.
