100 YEARS OF OLYMPIC MUSIC details the integral part music has played in each Summer & Winter Olympiad since 1896 (including Atlanta). After the first modern Olympic Games in 1896, founder, French-born Baron Pierre de Coubertin, stated that "fashions have undergone many changes over two thousand years, but music has remained the factor which best conveys the emotion within a crowd, & which best accompanies the amplitude of a great spectacle." 100 YEARS OF OLYMPIC MUSIC includes an interview with John Williams completed in December of 1995 following the world premiere of his new official Centennial Olympic Theme "Summon the Heroes." This book also lists extensive references to music used in ceremonies & commissioned for special events surrounding the Games, including the early "Arts Competitors" & as accompaniments for various competitors. In addition you will find a discography of recordings made of Olympic music. To order contact: Golden Clef Publishing, 4365 Dudley Rd., Mantua, OH 44255, FAX 330-274-2577.
