The Baton: A John Williams Musical Journey

Episode 62 - The Witches of Eastwick

February 5, 2020

After missing out on the opportunity to have John Williams score "The Color Purple," Jon Peters and Peter Guber made sure to get the Maestro for "The Witches of Eastwick," which the two produced. Host Jeff Commings notes this as his fourth-favorite John Williams score because the fun can be heard in every note. Commings is joined by Gianmaria Caschetto, who returns as co-host to talk about the structure of the theme for the three titular witches. The two also talk about the brilliant music for the tennis game and the decision to leave out Williams' original music for the ballroom scene. Grab a bowl of cherries and settle in for this fun discussion of Williams' Oscar-nominated score!
