Celebrating Star Wars Themes, Part 6 of 6: Battle of the Heroes — 6 Comments

  1. While I loved the standout themes from the first two prequels (“Duel of the Fates” and “Across the Stars”), for some reason I don’t find “Battle of the Heroes” to be as engaging. It reminds me of Sibelius’s “Finlandia”, which seems to be to feel like it’s not finished, like it’s missing it’s climax or something. I just can’t put my finger on why I feel this way. Thanks for the analysis, I need to think about this some more.

  2. Once again, thank you for your analysis. It is always exciting discovering something new about a work that I yet listened many times. I never noticed the Anakin’s grief and Anakin’s love for Shmi motifs. I really like how you bind the different motifs together, and link them to the story. It makes me want to see (and listen) once again (to) the movies.
    I am eager to read your analysis of the Force awakens.

  3. Long time, no see, I’m just checking if everything is ok? You’re analysis are missed, Oscars passed, couple of nice scores could be described… 🙂 Just checking! 🙂

    • Hi Mario. Thanks for your concern. This year it was sadly impossible for me to get the time to post about the Oscar race for Best Score. Everything is ok, just super-busy. Everything this year has been completely new for me in a new job and country, so it’s taken a whole lot of time to settle in and adjust to my new duties. I will return, though. My next goal is to write on The Force Awakens. I hope to get to it before summer.

  4. “In doing so, he [Obi Wan] gains the high ground, blocking Anakin from reaching land.”
    I automatically read “high ground” in Obi Wan’s voice, in the same intonation he had when he said it.
    (I’ve been to Star Wars Sithposting a lot lately, sorry…)
