Film music makes a vivid impression on me. Just about my favourite film is Gladiator and I find the music very emotional and uplifting... particularly 'earth' and the first battle/final amphitheatre fight scene at the end. Could I raise a possible plagarism issue here ? While on a clipper ship cruise, the ships sails were raised to music that I assumed was part of Gladiator - but which I subsequently found was Vangelis soundtrack to a film Conquest of Paradise 1492. Listening to both in paralle, it is apparent as a keen musician, that both sound very similar - only difference is that Vangelis theme starts in minor key and moves to major while Gladiator starts in the major key - but the main tune sounds so similar...... but Gladiator came first. Anyone else notice this ? If so should the Vangelis version be considered as plagarism ??
I think Vangelis' theme came fisrt, in 1992, while Gladiator was in 2000. They look similar indeed, but only in the beginning. In my opinion it's not a plagiarism, as the two melodies evolve differently, I would call it just an "inspiration" for Glaiator's theme,something that happens quite often, especially in film composing. Notice, also, that Vangelis has inspired Zimmer a lot ;-)
I think that bastard Holst stole something from Gladiator too. And don't get me started on that hack Richard Wagner. Man, Gladiator sure is a popular source of inspiration!
Yes, I'm a troll.
Zimmers music is full of plagiarisms. Listen to Crimson Tide soundtrack and then to the Sigfried theme in Wagners ring... Come on! Really?
OK "Plagiarism" is too strong a word - let's call it "inspiration". Zimmers music is great but it would be even greater to acknowledge the inspirations. Howard Shore admitted to the Rheingold Leitmotifs being a great inspiration for his amazing LOTR soundtrack...
Hello, Hans! My name is Victor and I am from Ukraine. I have great friend and he is your biggest fan, seriously! It so happened that soon his birthday. It would be great if you could send some kind of your item with your autograph for him. It is nothing for you but means a lot to him. If you agree, i can send you my address.
Ich hab tausende Lieder, ohne die ich nicht leben könnte. Die Spitze führt schon seit über 20 Jahren Russ Ballard mit "on the rebound" an. Wobei ich das auch nicht als absolutes Lieblingslied titulieren könnte, da mir eben soooooo viele Andere auch gefallen. Wenn ich aber Hans Zimmer`s "Chevalier des Sangreal" höre, laufen mir jedes mal die Tränen. Einfach vor Freude und Ehrfurcht, dass Jemand so ein perfektes Lied komponiert hat. Gänsehaut von den Haarspitzen bis zum kleinen Zeh. Selbst wenn ich es 10mal hintereinander anhöre. Wer so einen Effekt bei einem anderen Menschen mit nur einem Lied erzeugen kann, ist für mich der Grösste. Danke Hans, wenn ich an einen guten Gott glauben würde, dann wüsste ich, dass Du es bist.
Sie und ich teilen uns nicht nur das gleiche Geburtsjahr und -land, sondern auch die Liebe zur Musik, im Besonderen den Soundtrack.
Da ich im nördlichsten Mittelgebirge Deutschlands, dem Harz, einige Ferienwohnungen betreibe, stelle ich auch eine Reihe von informativen Dokumentarfilmen her. Die letzte Produktion ist ein Portraits der UNESCO-Welterbestadt Quedlinburg mit dem Titel "Quedlinburg - Wiege Deutschlands". Quedlinburgs Bürgermeister Eberhard Brecht begründete die Entscheidung für den Slogan "Wiege Deutschlands" mit der Rolle der Stadt zur Ottonenzeit im 10. und 11. Jahrhundert, als viele Reichstage hier stattfanden und damit der Ort der Mittelpunkt des Deutschen Reiches war. Für diese, wie ich denke, beeindruckende Doku dieser beeindruckenden Stadt habe ich keine bessere und passendere Begleitmusik gefunden als die genialen Melodien aus Madagascar 2 und 3. Es würde wirklich ein Unterschied zwischen Tag und Nacht ergeben, wenn ich freundlicher Weise diese legal erworbenen Kunstwerke in meinem Dokumentarfilm "Quedlinburg - Wiege Deutschlands" verwenden dürfte, um auf unserer Website www.feriendomizil-badharzburg.de interessierten Urlaubern zur Verfügung zu stellen.
Mit der herzlichen Bitte um Verwendung o.g. Melodien unter ausdrücklicher Namensnennung des genialen Composers verbleibe ich mit
Harzlichen Grüßen Horst Eidel
Hans Zimmer bekommt deinen Post nicht mit. Es handelt sich hier um eine Seite die in Frankreich betrieben wird und nur so ausschauen soll als ob. Ich bin selber am Anfang auf diese Seite reingefallen. Gruß Mike
I just want to say 'thank you' for the incredible soundtrack to "Interstellar", especially "Dust", which lets me feel the deep space and make me thoughtful about everything. It is also a very good music for programming. I know you hear this very often and from everyone. But there is no reason why I shouldn't tell you also that you are awesome! Thanks for so many years of great music!
Dear Mr. Zimmer, My little sister is watching a TV series Called "The Hamama" which is using your pieces (Dark knight, Intersteller..), No credit is given to your name which makes me believe it is stolen.
It is hosted in Israel, The creator of the series Is Giora Hamizer, And the so called "music composer" is Tal Yardeni.
Sorry for the bad English, just wanted to let you know about the situation. It is a very popular Teen's show here.
Dear Mr. Zimmer. I recently discovered that a few songs on the magnificent Interstellar: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Album on Spotify has been removed or dissapeared for some reason. The tracks included are "First Step", "No Time For Caution", "Flying Drone" and a few others. What is going on and will they be put back in the album soon? I'm a huge fan of you Hans so it's really killing me to not be able to enjoy your amazing music! I would be very thankful for your answer. Please contact me on my email email@example.com or just respond here. Best regards, Marcus.
Hello, dear Hans Zimmer! My name is Vyacheslav! I am the CEO of small and young theater company «Art-Lab». Our projects are focused on socially vulnerable segments of Russian population - children, seniors and war veterans. Our company starts a new ballet statement for children, in which they can get knowledge of good and evil, lies and honesty, about how beauty and love will save our lives. For a full and strong sense reflection on the ballet stage, we want to use your music: 1. Cornfield Chase (OST Interstellar), 2. 160 BPM (OST Angels and Demons), 3. "Daniel's 9th Cipher" (OST - The Da Vinci Code) We hope you will help us. firstname.lastname@example.org
I am writing this to you because a friend of ours who lives with my wife and I is a huge fan of yours. Because of you he is trying to get into the Carnegie School of Music in Pittsburgh, Pa. If there is any way you can send him not only some advice but words of encouragement. It would be much appreciated. He has a couple of disabilities he works with to include Turrets and aspergers syndrome. But he is determined to not only graduate school but to be able to create works as well as you do. He has written some works and he has had very little formal training but your words would help to inspire him.
I have directed a short film I want to put on youtube, but it would make the world of difference and make my video amazing if I could possibly speak to somebody about obtaining the rights to the song Waiting For A Train from the Inception soundtrack.
Please excuse me if this is not the correct place to ask as I am not sure the exact procedure. It would be much appreciated that if this is not the correct address to ask this, could you point me in the right direction. I can be contacted at email@example.com. Thanks in advance.
Hi, I think that the music is awesome ! I make my personal diving movies ( not for sale and just for me and my friends ) and I think that the music of Zimmer fit 100% the scenes but I don't want to break the copyrights...so how can I do it ?
Though I would much prefer to ask the composer himself, that option seems to be unavailable, so I shall ask the community of fans instead. In the song "Deliver Us" from The Prince of Egypt, around 5 minutes in, is a solo. The instrument that plays that solo sounds like a flute crossed with a recorder, and I would like to know what that instrument is. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.
Hello Mr. Zimmer, I am a very big fan of you . I am just curious to know if you are aware of music maestro Mr. Ilayaraja , the master composer from India. Have you heard his compositions (both songs and BGMs) ? . I am really curious to know if you have heard about him and that's because I consider him as my GOD of music. I'll be really shocked if the answer is NO. Thanks .
I enjoy listening to music and instrumentals. My comment to Hans Zimmer and his team is that I really enjoyed listening your music, especially from the soundtrack of Regarding Henry and Green Card. I really enjoy it. Thank you.
Hello Mr.Zimmer, I really love your music. I know you hear it all the time,it is so difficult to describe in words. Power, tears and all the time goose bumps. How music can wake up so many feelings is your magic. Thanks first for this. I'd like to hear you live in concert. I see there is a concert in Poland, are you personally there? I'll be the happiest man on earth to see you playing TIME on the piano. I'm from Germany, are there plans to give concerts in Germany with you?
Hi Mr Zimmer and team, I'm a big fan of your music, you bring an extra dimension to each film you work with. One of the best works I' ve seen (or listened to, actually) is "Inception", the 2010 Chris Nolan's motion picture. An outstanding job you did here, really. Along with the film there was an iphone app released. Something awesome. I use it a lot. Whenever I travel, or try to sleep, or having a "siesta", or when I need to be focused at work, or when I ride my bike, or walking home.... However, since I upgraded to iphone 6, the app doesn't work as it should. I was shocked there is no way to contact support to report the problem, other than the app store where no problem is ever solved. I was wondering if you could assist on this. Maybe you can get me in touch with the developers team to report the bug, or escalate the issue. It would be great and I'll be more than grateful. Thanks in any case.

Dear Mr. Zimmer, There is a bollywood movie that is about to be released named 'Bajirao Mastani'and they have copied your music from the movie,Man of Steel(Arcade soundtrack). I am a big Man of Steel fan and and this is just ridiculous as firstly they copied your music and have the audacity to modify and use it in the mainstream. Here is the link to the trailer https://youtu.be/NDEExEhvk1Y
