Tone Poem Tuesday

 I’ll have more to say about Raiders of the Lost Ark later this week (the movie came out 40 years ago this week!), but for now, here is John Williams conducting the Vienna Philharmonic in one of the most iconic of his many iconic themes, the Raiders March. I especially love Marion’s Theme, which forms the mid-section of this march; her theme has a lot more of a yearning sensuality to it than any of Williams’s lyrical themes from the Star Wars movies to that point.
