Williams "Two note" theme   Wednesday, November 12, 2003 (6:50 a.m.) 

Before you all get over excited about the orginality of William's two note theme listen agin the Franz Waxman's "Dr.Jeckle and Mr. Hyde" score and you will find exactly the same gesture and interval, used for a very similar purpose.

Cordially,

Mark

Call me nuts, but I've always thought the two-note motif is slightly reminiscent of Dvorak's Ninth Symphony. What's funny, I knew the score's theme before I heard Dvorak. When I heard the Dvorak my initial reaction was that HE ripped it off from WILLIAMS?

Funny, I don't recall two notes with a semitone interval as being copyright material. It's not exactly plagarism when it's two notes.

Actually, Dvorak's Symphony No. 8, beginning of Allegro con Fuoco starts with the exact two-note theme. This dates back to 1889.

Actually, it's Symphony No. 9, "From the New World" and yes, it's Allegro con fuoco.
