Understanding the Musical Origins of the Star Trek Theme
This is a marvellous piece done by CBC music that really puts the Original Star Trek theme into musical perspective.
It’s well known that Jerry Goldsmith, who composed the theme to the Motion Picture, which would later become the theme to the Next Generation, borrowed motifs from Holst and rightfully so. But this video traces the opening chords through Mahler, Brahms and Beethoven. A really wonderful piece. Have a watch.
