Look at the endcredits!   Monday, April 1, 2002 (5:48 a.m.) 

Look at the endcredits of the films were John Williams did the music for. I was a little bit schocked because I thought John Williams did all the orchestrations. But I looked also at Home Alone, Jurassic Parc, The Patriot etc.I saw all the orchestrations were done by other people. John Neufeld is the orchestrator who worked many times for John Williams. At the extensive credits in the soundtrack albums by John Williams, they do not call the names of the orchestrators (which I don't like.)> Don't be sad about this, John Williams is still a very good composer who creates great scores (also the scores he don't orchestrates,):D

If you would, take out a Williams cd and look for the orchestrators' names on it. You won't find them. Why? Because they don't do much. When Williams hands his music over to the orchestrators, the music is pretty much already orchestrated to the way he wants it, so the orchestrators don't really have to, nor do they, do much. He basically orchestrates most of it, then has others do the rest. That's why they don't get credited on any albums.
