When Steven Spielberg approached his longtime partner John Williams to compose Schindler's List for him, John Williams said he would need a better composer than him. "I know," said Spielberg, "but they're all dead."
For one, it's interesting to hear John Williams, composer of all composers, to say something so humble. I've put him up on a pedestal before, and I continue to do so, but then I'm reminded that there are things in life bigger than one person's greatness. For example, saving a person's life.
Perhaps someday I will find the words to explain what this movie means to me. Until then, I can only express myself with the music readily available. Perhaps that's all that needs to be said - nevertheless I would like to have the appropriate words to accompany it.
