Anakin's Theme?   Sunday, June 5, 2005 (12:37 p.m.) 

I read this on theforce.net http://www.theforce.net/episode3/story/John_Williams_Talks_Episode_III_92471.asp

"AP: "Revenge of the Sith" tells how Anakin Skywalker turns evil and becomes Darth Vader. How do you illustrate this musically?

John Williams: I've had a little musical fun with Anakin's theme, which appeared in one of the earlier films. ... I've had to work (the music) to accompany the scenes of where he's turning (from) the honorable ways of the Jedi and is becoming lost in this imperial dark side of things. So it's been a nice musical exercise. As with most of the "Star Wars" material, it's more like an operatic musical function than perhaps most film scores."

Where is this musical fun he had with Anakin's Theme? Is Battle of Heroes in any way tied to Anakin's Theme? Is it perhaps not on the CD? I read this an got excited, then remembered I've listened to the whole CD and I heard only one strain of what MIGHT be Anakin's Theme on "Enter Lord Vader" at about 0:29. Let me know your insights...

I don't exactly remember it in the soundtrack, but it was defenitely in the film. When Anakin and Padme talk after he had his first nightmare, we can clearly hear Anakin's theme. Also, Battle of the Heroes sounds a little bit like a very modified Anakin's Theme, maybe...

Anakin's Theme comes in particular near the end of the Immolation Scene

I don't hear anything that remotely emulates Anakin's Theme in "The Immolation Scene"...
