John Williams, composer
Catch Me If You Can is an exciting work for alto saxophone and
concert band based on the music from the Stephen Spielberg film
Catch Me If You Can.
The music was scored by the legendary film composer John Williams, who also
wrote the music for such great films as Star Wars, Jurassic Park,
Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Jaws.
Since Catch Me If You Can takes place in the 1960s, Williams felt that
a kind of jazz score representative of that decade featuring the alto
saxophone would be most appropriate for the movie’s soundtrack.
Williams scored Escapades for Alto Saxophone from the film for the
Boston Pops Orchestra.
This work has been adapted for band by Jay Bocook.
