Jarre, London Philharmonic
"Lawrence of Arabia Soundtrack"

In the spirit of the great film soundtracks, this score is both sweeping, dramatic and colorful.
We have John Williams to thank for saving the symphony orchestra's role as the primary tool of choice for films. When 'Lawrence' came out it was still in its heyday, and this soundtrack is probably as remembered a part of the film as Mr. O'Toole's eyes or the 65 mm super panorama filming.
