John Williams & Steven Spielberg: The Ultimate Collection is a three-disc retrospective that will be out March 17 and includes new recording of Williams’ scores.

It’s an update of a previous collection, which over two disks included music for Spielberg films Williams recorded with the Boston Pops Orchestra for 1991’s Sony Classical: The Spielberg/Williams Collaboration and 1995’s Williams on Williams: The Classic Spielberg Scores. Those collections featured music spanning 1974’s Sugarland Express through Jurassic Park and Schindler’s List (1993).

The update was recorded in 2016 with Recording Arts Orchestra of Los Angeles and includes work from Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Amistad, The BFG, Lincoln, The Adventures of Tintin, Minority Report, Catch Me If You Can, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Saving Private Ryan, War Horse, The Terminal, Munich and the 1999 documentary The Unfinished Journey.

“I was very happy with the fact that when I was music director of Boston Pops, we were able to record a lot of the music that I’d written for Steven’s films,” Williams said in a statement. “So I said to him, ‘ Steven, wouldn’t it be great if we could complete the Sony collection and put in all the things that we didn’t have when the last disc was recorded this time with our great orchestra here in Los Angeles?’ To which Steven responded, ‘This is a great idea. Let’s do it!’ “

The new collection also features the documentary Steven Spielberg & John Williams: The Adventure Continues about their collaboration and friendship. Williams has scored all of Spielberg’s films, with the exception of two, and he’s earned three Oscars for his work on Spielberg’s films (and five Oscars in total).
