This release marked the first time that the complete contents of the original double-LP releases of the scores from the first two movies became available on CD. Disc one in the set was devoted to Star Wars , with further tracks on disc four. For this set, John Williams selected 84 minutes of the 88 minute score.
These two releases are essentially the same; one of the few differences is that the release included a booklet with detailed notes on the soundtrack, while the release did not. Digitally remastered and re-edited from the original master tapes, this set is meant to be the definitive collection of the original Star Wars score.
Listed below are as 61 recurring themes or leitmotifs, of which about 59 leitmotifs are clearly identified in Williams' scores; [c] as well as two leitmotifs written by Williams for John Powell's score to Solo see Themes in the Anthology films: Solo. Since neither Williams nor his office ever provided a full list of the leitmotifs used in every Star Wars film, there is some controversy around the exact number of themes, with some taking an inclusive approach that identifies various leitmotifs, even where the composer probably never intended for,  and others taking an exclusive approach.
One of the key differences between the two approaches in the way in which Williams' main, long themes are approached: some view them as composed of several leitmotives that can appear for the very least once in isolation i. Its also, largely, the approach taken by Matessino, Adams and Lehman. A particularly noteworthy but ultimately incidental instance is the ostinato accompaniment to the Rebel Fanfare: it is only used isolated from the fanfare in lifted material that appears in Return of the Jedi.
Otherwise, it always precedes and accompanies the Rebel Fanfare, but often again it extends to underpin large sections of on-screen action and the respective material in the original Star Wars. Certain analysts will also list a single melody multiple times under various guises.
For instance, the emperor's theme can also be labeled separately in the same glossary as the "dark side" theme, Darth Sidious' theme, etc The inclusive approach also tends to identify leitmotives even where they don't meet the criteria of recurrence.
These individual pieces of music — whether they consist of a full melody, ostinati, diegetic pieces or a certain timbre — have sometimes been described as having thematic significance,  occasionally in fleeting comments even by Williams himself,  but since they do not recur in a different part of the narrative, nor are transformed from or into another motif, they do not comply with the definition of a leitmotif, even if they form the highlights of their respective scores or even featured prominently in the "making of" material e.
Chase through Coruscant. For instance, his use of tritones often denotes mystery, a device he uses for the droids landing on Tatooine and again in the concert arrangement of "The Throne Room. However, similar devices are also used in Indiana Jones to represent the mysteries of the Ark  and the Crystal Skull.
Hence, it is more of a way for Williams to evoke mystery, than a motif conceived specifically for any one of these scores. Similarly, other gestures taken from pre-existing music such as Williams' use of the Dies Irae melody to denote impending doom have been falsely identified as leitmotifs, even though Williams clearly described sections of music that rely on this gesture, such as his original take of the binary sunset, as non-thematic. In fact, sometimes the supposedly recurring material is similar, but not in fact identical.
A good example would be the variety of gestures relating to the dark side, following a piece of music used in the opera-house scene. Lehamn however clarifies that those alleged following statements are "similar but inexact" to the earlier gesture. Similarly, the proposed motifs for Mustafar  or Anakin's Dark Deeds  are in fact variations on Grievous' material, redirected to the evil Anakin. Sometimes, the recurring material is question is not part of the original composition but is rather tracked after-the-fact, or at least lifted, from existing material into a different section of the film, or from material that is recapitulated in a concert piece or end-credits suite.
This includes the Podracing fanfare and the ostinato accompaniment of the Rebel Fanfare,   which otherwise does not appear isolated from the unabridged theme more than once; the mournful writing for French horn at Shmi's funeral, the Arena March from Attack of the Clones   etc.
Occasionally, track titles are mistaken for themes. Williams has created themes out of non-recurring material by quoting them again in a following score: e. This, however, does not extend to such gestures being quoted in spin-off scores e. It has its own catalog of themes, independent from Williams' material, including a new, third theme for the Empire, although Giacchino also quotes both the original Imperial Motif and The Imperial March. In the process of composing the theme, Williams ended up using two separate ideas, each conveying a different aspect of the character, and went as far as to spot the film for places to use each motif; all other leitmotifs and other material were written and adapted by John Powell , the main composer for the film.
Instead of offering a full recording release of a particular film, Williams typically releases a condensed score on album,  in which the music is arranged out of the film order and more within the veins of a concert program.
These album releases typically include several concert suites, written purely for the end credits or the album itself, where a specific theme is developed continuously throughout the piece. Williams also re-edited some of his existing cues after the fact in order to "concertize" theme on the behest of conductors such as Charles Gerhardt.
Diegetic music is music "that occurs as part of the action rather than as background , and can be heard by the film's characters". Some of this diegetic music was written by John Williams; some by his son, Joseph; and some by various other people. In , the soundtrack for Star Wars was voted as the "most memorable film score of all time" by the American Film Institute in the list AFI's Years of Film Scores , based on the assessment of a jury of over artists, composers, musicians, critics and historians from the film industry.

The main Star Wars theme, first "'hard'" theme . Second "'soft'" motive . Rebel Fanfare. Ben Kenobi's theme The Force Theme. Princess Leia's Theme. The orchestra was augmented with a second set of timpani as was the case with Shore's Lord of the Rings scores, and with taiko drums, which have been used extensively by Shore and Zimmer. In particular, Anakin's Dark Deeds with the humming boy choir opening leading into a Gothic piece for an adult choir, is evocative of "The Treason of Isengard".
Several tracks, including the music to the opening of the film, evoke the rhythmic music of the Orcs. On FilmScoreMonthly. Ancillary sources include Frank Lehman's "Complete Catalogue of the Musical Themes of Star Wars", which includes a lot of "incidental motifs" including stylistic gestures and tracked material.
It is also consistent with the figures arrived at by Lehman who puts the number of leitmotifs in the series at 57 and Adams which puts the number of the first four films at as many as Williams himself, as he was making Attack of the Clones , assessed the size of his glossary at "20 themes". It first re-appears and becomes a recurring theme in the end-credits to Empire Strikes Back. Nevertheless, According to Adams this is "certainly not a theme in the leitmotivic sense", hence its classification remains in doubt.
Matessino refers to it as a "playful wind rendition of Yoda's theme" which Adams further describes as a "simpler spry tune in the second half of the unabridged theme.
While it is different to the main Ewok material, it really only appears twice in the underscore, and only in one of these instances does it appear by itself: all other appearances are in the concert arrangement, and the concert version of the cue in which they originally appear. The latter have been confused for a separate, secondary motif, specifically for Darth Maul or even for his probe droids, but Adams refers to them as mere "drum patterns" that are simply part of the theme.
The whole section of the theme, which emerges separately to the main phrase, denotes the "angst-ridden side" to quote John Takis of the relationship between Anakin and Padme.
This theme, and especially the ending figure, transform into the lament theme in Revenge of the Sith. While Williams never spoke of this section as a theme, another telling sign of this theme's dramatic designation in his mind is the video which accompanies it on "Star Wars: A Musical Journey", where the B-phrase and its ending figure both score images that convey the gloomy aspect of the relationship.
It is probably the motif that Williams reportedly was intending to write for Jango when he was composing the piece.
When Jango fights Obi Wan, Williams' derives an ostinato from it which underscores the fight scene. This motif, like the ostinato for "Chase through Curoscant" has been described as a leitmotif, but Takis describes those figures just as ostinati and "rhythmic patterns" and not as outright themes.
Doug Adams later commented Archived October 22, , at the Wayback Machine that the various action ostinati of the scores are "shorter, clunkier motives seldom longer than a measure or two, and often more rhythmic than melodic" and calls those passages "episodic. July 6, Retrieved August 23, Several sections rely on repeated syllables in Sanskrit, as is the case of Duel of the Fates or Snoke's theme.
While the syllables are drawn from loosely translated texts such as Cad Goddeu or the writing of Kipling, Williams typically arranges them by ear and without heed to their meaning, so the choral text remains repetitive and meaningless.
In other instances, the choir repeats a short albeit coherent sentence, such as with the Funeral theme or Anakin's Dark Deeds. The New York Times. December 15, Film Music Reporter. November 4, Archived from the original on December 23, Retrieved December 23, April 21, The Film Music Society. After Williams convinced Lucas to have an original score which would excel a tracked score in that it will have set themes for characters, Williams argued , those musical pieces were used as a temp track and Williams followed them closely, turning portions of the score into an homage to earlier film score and to romantic music in general.
Retrieved January 1, A theme can be used symbolically, such as hinting at Darth Vader's theme when the decision to train Anakin is made in Episode I.
