This without a doubt one of my favorite scores ever. I noticed that Schindler's List was performed by the Boston Symphony. Does anyone know what orchestra performed Jurassic Park? Was i the Boston Symphony? Thanks.

I'm pretty sure JP was performed by the London Symphony Orchestra, arguably one of the best orchestras in existence. Please correct me if I'm wrong though (about who performed it, not who's better!). :P

I'm very certain it wasn't the LSO. They don't list the sountrack on their website, nor is the LSO listed on the credits of the album. Every soundtrack they've done has listed them either on the cover or in the insert.

Don't know who it is, though. I'm interested to find out...

Since there is no specific orchestra listed on the album or film credits, I would assume that it was simply a contract orchestra made up of freelance Hollywood musicians that got together just to record this score. Since the score was recorded in California, it couldn't have been the LSO or the BSO or the Boston Pops. The fact that Sandy DeCrescent is listed as music contractor also seems to indicate that it was a freelance orchestra.

Yes, this orchestra was a contracted bunch. Gene Pokorney of the Chicago Symphony was on sebatical performing with the LA Phil when this was recorded and he was hired to play for the film.
