There's really no similarity there - or just about the same as in countless other 20th century works. Personally I've never heard that J.G. referred to ST:TMP as his "Vaughan Williams score", and it seems utterly ludicrous to me. I've been a admirer of both composers for more than 20 years, and it never ever occurred to me that there's a connection (nor did I come across any prior film music scholarly writing indicating that much) - not even in the Main Title of "The Illustrated Man".

Now, John Williams's WAR HORSE and Vaughan Williams - THERE's a connection. wink

I've heard that Goldsmith called it his "Vaughan Williams" score, it's been quoted around this board oft times. Whether the quote is true or where it originally comes from I do not know.


Perhaps someone who knows more can enlighten on this?

There's quite a few RVW nuts around here ( including myself ), if you want any recommendations.....

Great piece of Vaughan Williams that! Big influence on a lot of Goldsmith scores (POLTERGEIST, FIRST KNIGHT...). We all know the Debussy and Ravel stories, but I think Ralph should be claiming for a bit more recognition among score fans in mid-to-late-career Goldsmith appreciation.

Didn't Goldsmith himself stated then during writing Star Trek he was 'going through a Vaughan Williams-period' (or words to that effect)?

Edit: found this thread too. Funny. http://www.filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=47039&forumID=1&archive=0
