I would get the musical scores from the Star Wars movies performed by
the Los Angeles Philharmonic. In so far as classical music can be
considered a genre instead of a musical period ending in the 1800s,
then John Williams is one of the best modern classical music
composers. He is why the Star Wars movies are "space opera" instead of
"space theater" or "space story".
