With SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, John Williams has written a memorial for all the soldiers who sacrificed themselves on the altar of freedom in the Normandy invasion of June 6, 1944. Pay particular attention to the cue entitled "Hymn to the Fallen", which never appears anywhere in the main text of the film, only at the end credit roll. It's a piece of music and a testament to John Williams' sensitivity and brilliance that, in my opinion, will stand the test of time and honor forever the fallen of this war and possibly all wars.
In all of our 16 collaborations, SAVING PRIVATE RYAN probably contains the least amount of score. Restraint was John Williams' primary objective. He did not want to sentimentalize or create emotion from what already existed in raw form. SAVING PRIVATE RYAN is furious and relentless, as are all wars, but where there is music, it is exactly where John Williams intends for us the chance to breathe and remember.
As with SCHINDLER'S LIST, John Williams chose the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the deeply resonant qualities of Symphony Hall to record the score for SAVING PRIVATE RYAN. I would like to give special mention to Tim Morrison, Thomas Rolfs (trumpets) and Gus Sebring (French horn) for their heartfelt solos, and to Kenny Wannberg, who has been a close collaborator of John Williams and mine from almost the very beginning of my career.
Boston Symphony Orchestra includes: Tim Morrison, Thomas Rolfs (trumpet); Gus Sebring (horns). Additional personnel: Tanglewood Festival Chorus. Recorded at Symphony Hall, Boston, Massachusetts. Original score composed and conducted by John Williams. SAVING PRIVATE RYAN won the 1999 Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Composition Written For A Motion Picture Or For Television. How do you spell blockbuster? Try the following names; Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, while you're at it, how about John Williams, the soundtrack king who composed and conducted the original score for this heavy duty film. PRIVATE RYAN deals, somewhat graphically, with the horror that was WWII, and Williams naturally evokes this in his music. Through the use of ominous, minor key themes, moody orchestral textures, and some military percussion touches, William's score puts the listener in mind of the battlefield and the soldiers who fought and died there.
