Schindlers List Theme for Strings and Solo Violin

keyboard shortcuts

About this sheet music

Probably one of the most beautiful and emotional pieces ever composed, from Steven Spielberg's motion picture Schindlers List.
I absolutely love the emotion and feel of this piece, and in my opinion it is one of John Williams' finest pieces.

Thanx so much! I will use it for the piano, but I was looking for the string score, after hearing Itzhak Perlman, cause it's so moving, a bit longer then piano score and I'm curious how Itzhak's solo will feel and sound on the piano. This help me out a lot!

Beautiful arrangement. I have a concert in Feb and would like players to play this.
Do you happen to have in Violin/Viola/Piano format?
If not, would it be possible to receive the parts in the quartet setup you have?
Many thanks

I'm managing a string orchestra this year and would love to play this piece. Would it be possible to get the parts separately? Thanks in advance.

I love this piece, John Williams is a genius, and the interpretation of Perlman is the best. And the movie is one of the best of the history too, altough is really sad, shows us a story of a man who gave up everything to help others, although his position was very difficult, save the lifes of very many people . Really great arrangement , thanks for sharing!

amazing song! I love this movie so much :) I was almost bawling at how much of a good guy Schindler was for saving all the Jews :'). Great arrangement of a great song! ~RU

I was bawling at the end when the actors paid respect to Schindler's grave, with the characters they played. A few of them had passed away, and it said '... is no longer alive, so here to represent him/her is...'. Then Liam Neeson stands alone at the grave, after he lays a rose on it. Oh my god, I've never cried so much in a film before. Anyways, thanks for the comment RU :D

Well done! An almighty achievement--I've been on here nearly a year, and have only had my second 500-view piece. Charming arrangement.

Absolutely brilliant!!!!!! I'd have to agree, definitely one of his best pieces. I actually had no idea John Williams wrote this.... that's so cool! Really great arrangement =D

Thank you very much!! One of his best pieces and a great film, but a very depressing one at that. :D
