While I agree that the rhythmic string writing of the Escape From Cloud City is indeed fantastic and overlooked by most people, I can't believe you didn't at least make mention of one of the greatest secondary themes in the entire Star Wars trilogy: the Asteroid Field. Frantic strings, busy woodwinds, soaring brass...never before has a theme so bold been used so effectively. The slightly different and very interesting concertized version contained on the Charles Gerhardt recording. If only more orchestras played this amazing piece in concert!
Anyway, the saga of the many albums of the Star Wars trilogy is fun to read so it's good to have the extensive write-up of it here. We should be thankful that we're lucky enough to have a full, complete, and readily available release of this, the most perfect of all film scores.
