John Williams - Imperial March sheet music

When you think of the greatest pieces of art from the film or music industry, you have to ask yourself who is behind those amazing things.

Whose mind was able of such complex ideas? After Walt Disney, we have John Williams – the American composer and pianist, who is regarded by many as one of the greatest film composers of all time.

His cinematic compositions are among the most popular and recognizable ones.

John Williams has won 25 Grammy Awards, 7 British Academy Film Awards, 5 Academy Awards, and 4 Golden Globe Awards.

Today we are talking about the Imperial March, a musical theme, which we can find in the Star Wars movie.

Williams composed it for the movie The Empire Strikes Back. The theme was put along with Yoda’s Theme and it was premiered in April 1980.

The song is considered to be a film soundtrack music and film score genre, and it was released under the RSO Records Label.

The Imperial March was heard for the first time in The Empire Strikes Back, when the Galactic Empire sends probe droids in search of the character Luke Skywalker.

The theme song appears on a few occasions in the prequel trilogy also.
