In the next lesson, we’ll spend a significant amount of time looking at the works and career of John Williams; however, in his score for Jaws you can already hear a good representation of his preferred style—the large, operatic orchestra with a motivic/thematic approach. This music sounds much more like the classic work of Korngold, Steiner, and Newman than it does the newer composers like Bernstein, Morricone, or Goldsmith.

For this lesson’s final discussion, compare the scene from Jaws you just watched with the clip from Korngold’s classic 1940 swashbuckler The Sea Hawk from lesson 3. In your post, list three aspects of the Jaws cue that you feel is a return to Korngold’s approach (could be related to orchestration, composition, spotting or dramatic function) and one aspect that you feel is different.

Do you feel that Williams’s choice of stylistic approach was suitable for this type of action-adventure film? Why or why not?
