Conductor John Williams has composed a musical tribute in honor of Fenway Park’s 100th anniversary. The piece, entitled “Fanfare for Fenway” is slightly more than three minutes long, and it was played and recorded Saturday at Symphony Hall in Boston by musicians from the Boston Pops Orchestra.

Williams, the highly accomplished maestro whose work is featured in movies such as Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Jurassic Park, is a Red Sox fan whose work has been included in several Fenway Park celebrations.
