John Williams turns 86 today. Happy birthday, MAESTRO! For many more years to come, full of music!

He’s still active composing and conducting, and he has prepared and released recently a new concert arrangement of the theme ‘Han Solo and the Princess’ from Star Wars (yes, he has prepared that arrangement himself!).

With a duration of almost 6 minutes, it was premiered on January 31st during the concert he offered in San Diego (California). There’s no video of that performance, but the same arrangement was also played live last week in Scotland at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. Here you have a video of that moment.

Enjoy 6 minutes of pure magic!
