Well that's strange. 90% seems a lot.<br><br>What they'll get in Coachella will be, for sure:<br>Pirates of the Caribbean (maybe not the "Marry Me" segment)<br>Lion King<br>The Dark Knight<br>Inception<br><br>Probably Interstellar as well, judging by the interview.<br>They could possibly include Man Of Steel and/or Amazing Spider Man 2 (even though many people don't know it and hate the movie).<br>They should definitely include Crimson Tide.<br>And Angels & Demons because the arrangement is so spectacular, but I don't know, far from his most famous score.<br><br>Can't wait to see some videos on youtube!Wow this is an absolute magical peice! Just jaw dropping!Think that 2CD album was that Illuminated Star Projection Edition. Don't think this one is still available. Although, the vinyl release of this score was pretty good, it has Murph and Tick-Tock on it. You can find all these on youtube also.a.co/7LzvTpYWhere i can buy this 2 CD's album?? Or better on mp3?<br>In amazon i can buy only 1 CD/MP3 with only 16 tracks.
Hi. Can someone please tell me if this concert in Europe will be any different than the concert from last year or not? Does anybody have a tracklist for 2017?Chad smith played on the score -red hot chilli peppers - what a drummer!!Will his Coachella performance be different from his other US tour dates? In his interview with Billboard it says it will be 90% Christopher Nolan, but wasn't if this was a mistake or not? Do you know anything Hybrid? <br>Not just Powell but Zimmer too! The Prince of Egypt, Kung Fu Panda and The Lion King! Another great Powell animated score is Shrek, which he shares with Gregson-Williams :DGood for him! It's great that this score is getting such acclaim. It's a very fun and enjoyable one. But go out and ask those same people if they like this more or How to Train Your Dragon and then come back and tell me what they say.

There seems some negative comments about this score but I think it is great because it is fun but also with great serious overtones. For a change , the music was as important as ththe storyline for a change . I was actually shocked to see Lorne's name at the end because I had never heard his music this good. seems like he was allowed to go wild and enjoy writing . Enjoyed this soundtrack more than anything in a long time so well done@jrej3555<br><br>Where does Part 3 go?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_bmlThSrdiQ&index=3&list=PLf zW_wEeYxk49mJ4kq_YIeYYzybMGSHz0<br><br>And here's a little one behind-the-scenes!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4xEA6kwonEo<br><br>Here's a little behind-the-scenes!Really enjoying this score and the film was great .

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.
