1. Oscar Music Iv Liane speaks once again with NPR's Andy Trudeau about this year's nominees for best dramatic film score. Today's focus is on John Williams, perhaps best known for his music to "Star Wars" (Fox 07822-11012-2). This year he is nominated for his score to "Sleepers" (Philips 454-88-2). Andy finds part of the score evocative of Aaron Copland's "Quiet City" (DG 419-170-2). They also recap the previously-discussed nominees, including Patrick Doyle's music for "Hamlet" (Sony SK 62857), Elliot Goldenthal's score for "Michael Collins" (Atlantic Classics 82960-2), David Hirschfelder's score to "Shine" (Philips 454-710-2), and Gabriel Yared's score to "The English Patient" (Fantasy FCD-16001-2). Finally, Andy gives his pick for the best score.
