John Williams is one of the most gifted people that music has allowed us to be affected by. The process he takes to make his music is far from random. It is all carefully planed, and all built masterly to fit the mood of the film he's composing for. While nearly all of his music is masterfully beautiful and touching, Schindler crosses the line. How Williams knows so much about Jewish music is beyond me, but the way he incorporates it into the score is amazingly touching. While I don't want to go too far, it could be said that the theme from Schindler's List covers all the hardships the country of Israel has had to go through until today. For a while just hearing the soundtrack was enough for me. But soon, I came to the conclusion that I had to learn how to play it, how to make it happen under my own power. And that's when I found this book. For anyone who wants to feel emotions that they haven't felt since they were in 4th grade learning about the Shoah, here it is. Sieze it.
