In Destruction of Alderaan, Williams refrains from any recurring themes, but instead delivers a brilliant ninety-second musical capsule embodying the tyranny of the Galactic Empire. At first, winds take on a threatening quality, then the brass and strings do the same as Princess Leia is pressured into divulging the location of the secret Rebel base. Finally all sections join in for a rhythmic expression of out-of-control technology, building to a crescendo as the Death Star wipes Alderaan out of existence with one blast of its prime weapon. The action for the second half of the film deals entirely with the infiltration of this ultimate weapon.
