Does anyone have a link to where this expanded version (all 39 tracks) can be downloaded?Yes yes yeeeees! Now this would be the climax of the concert!!! Thank you Hybrid for speaking for us, i reaaaally hope he puts in Last Samurai in the programm. Crossing the fingers....It took a couple of days inside France. Don't know about international. Shouldn't take too long I guess...Ordered my tickets for Paris, so excited! Got booking confirmation but was wondering does anyone know when I get the actual tickets? I'm in IrelandHahahaha Hybrid you just made my day!! I think Hans is a really nice guy, he'll figure it out! :-)
Well know that Hans is aware of the Last Samurai request... Doesn't mean it'll happen, but he knows ! lolThan it's okay :)Nope, I can't...@Hybrid: haha you know I can't wait to listen to Lorne's new :)<br><br>Hybrid can you add some Lorne Balfe Complete Scores??? Would like to see some complete list from himIt is my dream come true to hear you live, Hans. Unfortunately, I'm from Serbia, and you bypassed my country, but today I finally received a ticket for your show in Sofia, Bulgaria. My happiness can not be described. Right now I'm looking at your list for the show, and as much as I know I'll be mesmerized by hearing “160BPM” or Sherlock Holmes Theme “Discombobulate” right there, in front of me, I'm sorry to see that some of your most wondrous work have been bypassed as well. It seems to me that you're holding on to your theme pieces, while there are more emotional and stunning numbers, even in those movies from which you've already made your selection. If I must mention something, that will be “The Da Vinci Code”, “The Lion King” and “Pirates” from the works included, and what saddens me the most is that “The Prince of Egypt” and “The Last Samurai” are not in there in any way. I think, and I'll be bold enough to say that many will agree, that they deserve to be in your show, and will affect more people, rather than “Miss Daisy”, “The Thin Red Line”, or “True Romance”. Not to mention how they surpass some of the new ones with credit. I'm not by all means trying to degrade their value, I just think they're more deserving. I know that you can't please everyone, and I know that some of your work I will never hear in person, and as much as that saddens me, I must try and grasp for a straw that is the possibility that you'll hear me, and take what I have to say at least in consideration. That would be enough. I would be happy if my musical idol, which you really are, Hans, I admire you enormously, just saw what I've referred to him. To you. That would really be enough.<br><br>Now I'll state my mind, and mention what I will miss greatly in your show, even though my heart will be on the verge of collapsing from adrenalin when I see and hear you.<br><br>The Da Vinci Code; I adore “Chevalier De Sangreal”, but I would like to remind you of “The Citrine Cross”. Those flickering sonorous sounds are something most beautiful, and the Goddesses Choir (Isis, Asterteque, Venus, Sybillique; Deae Sanctissime perdite ubique) is something I never tire of listening. It's outstanding in every way. I especially liked that alternate version when Silas dies. And when I'm already mentioning Silas, “The Pascal Spiral”, when he's self injuring is something most dramatic and intense I've heard. Besides those two I will only mention “Maleus Maleficarum”. That female choir is breathtaking. So breathtaking. I hope you don't mind but I even managed to feature it in a production of “Animal Farm” by George Orwell, in my acting school, and that scene had everyone captivated, just because of the music. I cherish that memory greatly.<br><br>The Lion King; Here I'll be short. “Under the Stars” and “King of the Past”. Those tracks are stupendous! The end in King of the Past almost always leaves me in tears. And in almost every concert album of yours I was a bit disappointed because every time there was an arrangement of “This Land”, and never any of these.<br><br>As for the Pirates: “Mermaids”! The City of Prague Philharmonics did just in their album of your music! Those haunting voices and string instruments are impeccable. And I think it will be masterful for the audience to experience them, too. One more I have to mention here, but I suppose that organ pieces are out of the question, giving the fact that "No Time for Caution", or any of the “Interstellar” (I'm sorry about that, too), is not featured in the show's list of arrangements. That one is “The Organ of Davy Jones”. That track is a favorite of my father's, and of mine. Especially the organ part, and the music box. That theme is to me one of your greatest achievements. And I thank you for it.<br><br>I also forgot to say (or ask), why is the “Am I Not Merciful” track not included? Because that one was in almost all of your previous concerts. That track, too, was in my play. :)<br>And I always thought it was more suitable for an execution scene, or something, especially that part that plays somewhere around 2 minutes. But the whole scene in the film is absolutely phenomenal.<br><br>I know I'm long, if you're reading this you're probably getting tired, but, hey, it is a straw, remember. And it is a long shot. Literally.<br><br>For last I'm getting back to “The Last Samurai” and “The Prince of Egypt”. “A Way of Life”, or that Suite that The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra did are gorgeously powerful. As are “Deliver Us” and “The Burning Bush” from the Prince. I suppose that “Deliver Us” isn't used in regards to Ofra Haza's untimely death, but I think that it in fact could be a beautiful homage to her. Think about that.<br><br>At the end I would like to congratulate you for what you have done. You've brought me such joy, and I know you will still. Your music was there for me in some crucial points in my life, and I can't express how grateful and happy I am that you've decided to make a tour and grace us with hearing you in person. I don't know if you're reading this. Maybe you won't. Maybe all I’ve said is in vain. But the thought of you just seeing how much your music means to me, means the world to me. If you change your mind and take into consideration just one of these masterpieces of yours, I would be blessed beyond words, but even if you don't, I know that my dream of hearing you live will certainly come true on the 16. of May next year. And that is more than enough for me. I wish you all the best in life, and I'll be seeing you. Right there, in Sofia. :)<br><br>Igor<br>
suite is awesome <CRY>Put some IS tracks into the show.. a MUST HAVE ! ;)<br>How about INTERSTELLAR ??? Pleaaaasseee !!!Hybrid: How about a Poll for the Fans? Hans loved involving his fans, just like in TDKR, and here he can listen to the fans what should be played. As its hard to choose which cue it should be played, the option would be instead which movie should be played. Let's say the 10 movies with the most votings, should be played then live. <br><br>It would be seriously a shame, if Last Samurai and King Arthur would not have a chance to be presented. <br><br>And time should be enough to prepare something new...I'm still hoping that Hans will play the complete score of The Thin red Line (including bootlegs, especially bootlegs !). I know I'm dreaming... :D<br><br>Seriously, Hans, forget TASM2 or Driving Miss Daisy. Remember the violin in Daniel's 9th Cipher, the choral in On the Road !<br><br><br><br>
Any way to make some tour date in the United States? Preferably the Northern Virginia and Washington D. C. area.<br><br>I absolutely love your scores for movies. I could listen to your beautiful music over and over again. <br><br>Please consider coming to the United States!!!!<br><br>Sincerely, a big fan!Are you from a country that Hans Zimmer isn't coming to then?Also, along side Rush I think the King Arthur soundtrack is too good not to be played live! Anything from the score would be amazing.Also, along side Rush I think the King Arthur soundtrack is too good not to be played live! Anything from the score would be amazing.I so agree, Rush live would be amazing! "Lost But Won" and "1976"especially.

Mini biography from IMDB

German-born composer Hans Zimmer is recognized as one of Hollywood’s most innovative musical talents‚ having first enjoyed success in the world of pop music as a member of The Buggles. The group’s single Video Killed the Radio Star became a worldwide hit and helped usher in a new era of global entertainment as the first music video to be aired on MTV.

Zimmer entered the world of film music in London during a long collaboration with famed composer and mentor Stanley Myers‚ which included the film My Beautiful Laundrette. He soon began work on several successful solo projects‚ including the critically acclaimed A World Apart‚ and during these years Zimmer pioneered the use of combining old and new musical technologies. Today‚ this work has earned him the reputation of being the father of integrating the electronic musical world with traditional orchestral arrangements.

A turning point in Zimmer’s career came in 1988 when he was asked to score Rain Man for director Barry Levinson. The film went on to win the Oscar for Best Picture of the Year and earned Zimmer his first Academy Award Nomination for Best Original Score. The next year‚ Zimmer composed the score for another Best Picture Oscar recipient‚ Driving Miss Daisy‚ starring Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman.

Having already scored two Best Picture winners‚ in the early ’90s Zimmer cemented his position as a pre-eminent talent with the award-winning score for The Lion King. The soundtrack has sold over 15 million copies to date and earned him an Academy Award for Best Original Score‚ a Golden Globe‚ an American Music Award‚ a Tony and two Grammy Awards. In total‚ Zimmer’s work has been nominated for 7 Golden Globes‚ 7 Grammys and seven Oscars for “Rainman”‚ “Gladiator”‚ “The Lion King”‚ “As good As It Gets”‚ “The Preachers Wife”‚ “The Thin Red Line‚” “The Prince Of Egypt” and “The Last Samurai.”

With his career in full swing‚ Zimmer was anxious to replicate the mentoring experience he had benefited from under Stanley Myers’ guidance. With state-of-the-art technology and a supportive creative environment‚ Zimmer was able to offer film-scoring opportunities to young composers at his Santa Monica-based musical ’think tank.’ This approach helped launch the careers of such notable composers as Mark Mancina‚ John Powell‚ Harry Gregson-Williams‚ Nick Glennie-Smith and Klaus Badelt.

In 2000 Zimmer scored the music for Gladiator‚ for which he received an Oscar nomination‚ in addition to Golden Globe and Broadcast Film Critics Awards for his epic score. It sold more than three million copies worldwide and spawned a second album “Gladiator: More Music From The Motion Picture‚” released on the Universal Classics/Decca label. Zimmer’s other scores that year included Mission: Impossible 2‚ The Road To El Dorado and An Everlasting Piece‚ directed by Barry Levinson.

Some of his other impressive scores include Pearl Harbor‚ The Ring‚4 films directed by Ridley Scott; Matchstick Men‚ Hannibal‚ Black Hawk Down and Thelma & Louise‚ Penny Marshall’s Riding In Cars With Boys and A League Of Their Own‚ Quentin Tarantino’s True Romance‚ Tears Of The Sun‚ Ron Howard’s Backdraft‚ Days Of Thunder‚ Smilla’s Sense Of Snow and the animated Spirit: Stallion Of The Cimarron for which he also co-wrote four of the songs with Bryan Adams‚ including the Golden Globe nominated “Here I Am.”

At the 27th annual Flanders International Film Festival‚ Zimmer performed live for the first time in concert with a 100-piece orchestra and a 100-piece choir. Choosing selections from his impressive body of work‚ Zimmer performed newly orchestrated concert versions of Gladiator‚ Mission: Impossible 2‚ Rain Man‚ The Lion King‚ and The Thin Red Line. The concert was recorded by Decca and released as a concert album entitled "The Wings Of A Film: The Music Of Hans Zimmer."

In 2003‚ Zimmer completed his 100th film score for the film The Last Samurai‚ starring Tom Cruise‚ for which he received both a Golden Globe and a Broadcast Film Critics nomination. Over the past year‚ Zimmer has scored Nancy Meyers’ comedy Something’s Gotta Give‚ the animated Dreamworks film‚ A Shark’s Tale (featuring voices of Will Smith‚ Renee Zellweger‚ Robert De Niro‚ Jack Black and Martin Scorsese)‚ and most recently‚ Jim Brooks’ Spanglish starring Adam Sandler and Tea Leoni (for which he also received a Golden Globe nomination). His upcoming projects include Paramount’s Weatherman starring Nicolas Cage‚ Dreamworks’ Madagascar and highly anticipated Warner Bros. summer release‚ Batman Begins.

Zimmer’s additional honors and awards include the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award in Film Composition from the National Board of Review‚ and the Frederick Loewe Award in 2003 at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. He has also received ASCAP’s Henry Mancini Award for Lifetime Achievement. Hans and his wife live in Los Angeles and he is the father of 4.© 2001-2015 OST
