I would dearly love to see the entire score of Batman Begins performed live! I bought the CD after watching the movie several times. I can see the orchestra in my head..every violin..horn..drums..it is the Rachmananoff of movie sound tracks! I love it! Any chance of a live concert of this anywhere, anytime? I live in Asheville, North Carolina..USA so going to Belgium is not an option. It is on my 'bucket list'..many thanks for a reply.
Mr Zimmer. my name is Samuel Leys, i live in belgium and i'm 18 years of age. I have made 2 movie soundtracks for Amateur films. I wil never become such a big composer as you are, Yet it is my dream to visit you'r studio one day... and perhaps make you listen to one of the theme's i wrote. firstname.lastname@example.org is my e-mail adres. I know you'r very busy with you'r work. and i know that sending an e-mail or making it possible for me to visit you'r studio is impossible. yet it is my dream so i dream on... thanks for reading this. hope all is good.
My name is Jacob Crabtree and I am a musician in western North Carolina. I will be graduating high school this year and have to conduct a graduation project and for my project I am composing, mixing, and editing a CD that has has five different movie scores on it. Another aspect of the project is to interview a person in the business. I am a huge fan of your work and would love to get in touch with you about the interview. If you feel led to do so please e-mail me at email@example.com. Look forward to hearing from you soon!
Please release the extended version of the road to el dorado with all 39 songs!!! I can distinctly hear a lot missing in the ost that is in the movie.. I love ur music so much congrata on Sherlock homes I was actually able to figure out discombobulate on piano nice job!!!!!
I loved the soundtrack to "It's Complicated." It was a painting in the background. I need to see the movie again just to hear the music only. A movie has so many facets to bring out all the colors of the rainbow. Your music is the rainbow of our lives
Your music is probably as beautiful as singing on angels in the Heaven... i would like to create like You, Sir. You are my favorite composer. my dream is to meet you and to learn something. i am 17 years old and i am starting with my own improvisations, example http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBhhsIKmjBU greetings, respect.

Hans, I have been following your music since Gladiator and I even have "for Nancy" as a ringtone on my Iphone. What can I say, since I have that ringtone I smile inside everytime I get a call. Call me crazy but are the little things in life that makes it worthwhile... I have been finding myself looking, when a new movie trailer appear, the Music Composer credit to see if it is you: Now: It's complicated! Thank you for your music... makes people like me very happy.
Fellow composer here. You're pretty much the grandfather of the "BIG" hollywood sound. Much respect to you... I'm curious, did someone clone Steve Jablonsky after you,,, every theme I've ever heard of his mimics one of your themes... either from gladiator (the island) transformers (pearl harbor/the island) and those are the only two OST's i can think of coming from him. however... is this a bastard son we never knew about??? You're a good man
Dear Mr Zimmer: My name is Marcela, I´m writting to you from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I have fallen in love with the melodies you composed for “The Holiday” Soundtrack. I hear them in my head all day long. They are just beautiful and I believe they are similar to what heaven might sound like. Your music is special, it is diferent, it really touches your heart. Thanks for lighting up our lives with your music!! I hope you continue to write great music. I dream of metting you someday, Lot´s of love!
these days I am fully in Hans Zimmer mode. Wherever I go, I have your music on my ears. Gladiator. Fantastic. Your incredible ability to put the exact emotions into vibrations is simply...... well, I am speechless. You have produced authentic feelings in me while listening to battle pieces. Like I am there in this very moment. It is even more interesting to me, since I research the expansion of consciousness, through integration of polarities, and this experience produced deep and genuine feelings - a pure jewel in my work.
I am completely overwhelmed with inspiration, joy and strong feelings. I and my every cell that has been enjoying these days - deeply bow to you!!
And looking to your site, I realize that I have just started to discover your work :-))
Dear M.Zimmer, iam a shame to say that i only recently discoverd you and your music and i wish i could say that i folow your work for years but it is not the case.
However in the short time that it took me to folow your work and realy listen to it, i have to say that its nothing more than a divine privilege and only now i know that music can reach inside your soul and spark something deep that hide behind so much physical and emotional walls.In relevance to the movies aspect it work wonderful in a way that the music just somehow take you and pot you inside the drama and just make you feel apart of the movie.
The strongst feeling i ever got from any movie soundtrack was in " Chevaliers de Sangreal " ,that music that scene just changed something in me and i felt love and a very strong feel of sacrifice, long after iv seen the movie still every time that i hear that beautiful pice.... can make an adult man to almost cry from feelings that just awake in a spark.
thank you for the opportunity to enjoy such brilliant and deep emotions.
Dear Mr.Zimmer, My name is Lea de Melo. I am a student in Year 11 at the International School of Geneva and taking the International Baccalaureate. In Year 11, every student has to do a Personal Project which consists of taking responsibility for our own learning by researching and investigating a topic that interest us. My Personal Project will attempt to answer the following question: “How does the soundtrack of a film enhance or manipulate the emotional response of the viewer?” Mr Hand , my project supervisor and the Campus Principal, suggested I contact you because of your significant contribution to film soundtracks. I play the piano and love film scores. For the practical / creative side of my project, I will be composing the soundtrack for a scene in a film being made by the Head of Performing Arts and some students. I thought it could be interesting to combine the two and learn about how composers go about their work and inform my own composition at the same time. I have already started conducting research by seeing how music enhances the emotion in a movie scene. I have also researched film composers and I am hoping to get some of their professional advice. I was wondering if you would be willing to answer the few questions below so that I can try to understand and compare the different approaches to process and techniques composers use to create a film score. 1) What process(es) do you use in writing music for a film? Do you discuss the film first with the director? Do you read the script? Do you choose the scenes to be scored or does (s)he or is it a collaboration? Do you view the relevant scenes for your inspiration? 3) How do you choose the style of music you will adopt? Do you work thematically in terms of the whole film? 4) How do you choose the key, rhythm, tempo and dynamics? 5) How do you decide on the instrumentation? Do you believe that certain instruments stimulate or enhance certain emotions? Is the oboe, for example, a ‘plaintive’ instrument? 6) Do you think music can “cover up” a weak scene? 6) Has there been any time during which you were not inspired? How did you find inspiration? 7) What other advice can you give me? If you would prefer to do this over skype we could conduct the interview verbally but that might be more time consuming for you. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you very much for your time. Lea de Melo
