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".
