Exploring the lighter side of The Force on his second Star Wars soundtrack, John Williams shapes memorable character themes from sweetly flowing violins, flute and harp for “Yoda’s Theme” and “Han Solo and the Princess”. But it’s hard to not love the bad guys. Channelling Holst, the militaristic throb of "The Imperial March (Darth Vader's Theme)", with its authoritative minor-key brass moments, still makes the hair on the back of our necks stand on end.
