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 ! lol
Than 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.I would love to hear some of his compositions for big orchestra, e.g. Marry Me Suite, Prince of Egypt, King Arthur. Those would make great in a show like this. HZ Revealed was more of a Rock/Pop compilation.

The last part of "Charlie loses his head" seems to be the source of Dark Knight, it is very similar with the theme from TDKR

with all the respect in the world for mr zimmer and i think in modern times he is as GOOD as IT WAS the legendary ENNIO MORRICONE do have a question on the soundtrack on BLACK rain..i've searched all his soundtrack who are brilliant but i've missed one..when SUGAI enters the club and before that minute 54 and 15-20-30 seconds what's the name of the;s driving me mad searching for it..i have the original dvd and all sound track on my computer all except that!!

La La Land has announced that they'll release another Zimmer score next year! Really curious which one it'll be.

Days of Thunder would be very cool. And I'm still hoping for an expanded The Peacemaker.

T-Mann036 reply Replies: 9 || 2012-10-01 03:21:37
This is ultimately one of the best film scores Hans have ever composed in 1990. Even for an expanded score with additional music from the late Shirley Walker and recording artists from UB40, Iggy Pop, etc., this is truly a must have and a part of the RCP Collector's library.

Cloud2012-10-01 13:34:31
To me this is one of the best scores he has ever composed, period. It's easily among my top 3 favorites of his. Then again, when I listen to Hans, I listen almost always to his late 80s/90s/early 00s stuff.

Dawn2012-10-02 13:11:20
@Cloud I feel the same. Late 80's, all 90's and early 2000's... what a great era for film music lovers !

Aggelos2012-10-03 11:49:42
You're right folks. Late '80s and '90s contain the most fantastic stuff from the RCP team. From early 2000, it would seem that the decline-twilight of the memorable theme/cues begins....

Sanguinely, LLL and Intrada will bring to light more of them (remember Intrada's White Fang).

Cloud2012-10-03 13:41:15
I included the early 00s solely because of scores like Gladiator, Black Hawk Down, Hannibal, Spirit or The Last Samurai. These are all great. To me, the last big score of that era was King Arthur. After that, things started to change considerably.

That being said, I really hope LLL or someone decides to release Bird on a Wire and Days of Thunder.

Trent Easton Navarro2012-10-03 16:16:15
Yeah, King Arthur was probably Zimmer's last great score.

And I second Bird on Wire and Days of Thunder! But great scores that need to be released officially

Ds2012-10-03 22:52:58
I think you people are forgetting Pirates 2 & 3! Especially the 3rd!

Prott2012-10-03 23:15:57
... and The Da Vinci Code (at least).

Dawn2012-10-04 01:17:40
Yes, Da Vinci Code and Pirates 3, or even Inception were really good in their own right... but they were exceptions in this "new" era.

I don't know if it is film music that changed, or if it was just me, but from 1995 to 2003, I was excited every 3 months with something new. Then it started to decrease.
Yes I liked King Arthur, but it was not half as good as Gladiator or Black Hawk Down were.
Batman Begins, though it is now iconic and an important evolution in film music, still remains for me a little bit uninteresting and weak.

Maybe I started to get older and lost some natural childood enthusiasm ? Or was there a real decline in quality or inspiration ?... don't know.

some amazing unreleased part of Nick and Masa theme now released !!!!

Just wondering does this release contain more unreleased music than the complete score bootleg release?

It does. ;)

Ravi2012-07-01 06:27:49
Indeed, great news! So cool to see all these awesome HZ scores being released - Broken Arrow, White Fang and now this. Here's hoping that Lion King and Gladiator aren't too far. :-)

Cloud2012-07-01 17:02:01
Oh, boy. LLL saves the day once again. Black Rain has to be the quintessential Zimmer action score and my absolute alltime favorite of his. This is as good as ordered.

Mikel SiW (a fan from Spain)2012-07-02 13:31:32
Another miracle from La-La Land!!

Pawel Stroinski2012-07-30 01:15:23
The score will be probably released this August. Lala already "announced" that it will be their next release.

Aggelos2012-09-17 14:25:34
No August dudes. End of Sep or early October.
It's gonna be the wickedness!!! LLL needs to tackle more Media Ventures stuff! What on earth have they been doin'?.....

I'm losing my composure and patience!

Aggelos2012-09-18 09:16:17
The shit will be out September 25.
If not, then October 9.

Hybrid Soldier2012-09-18 16:44:12
Coming next week, the 25th !!!! :D

Aggelos2012-09-18 17:32:38
You don't say, bro! Count me in! It's about time to get another fine Zimmer release by triple L. Stop your grinning and drop your linen!

I was hoping some signed copies but the out hopes were trashed by "No signed Black Rain copies. Altough the project was produced with the blessing of Mr. Zimmer."

Trent Easton Navarro2012-09-18 20:00:03
Definitely looking forward to this one! One of Zimmer's finest action scores!

Aggelos2012-09-21 14:59:35
Guys, this score was conducted by Shirley. But what exactly did Shirley conduct in this one?
Was she conducting Hans' fingers whilst he performing and sequencing the music on his synthesizer?

Hybrid Soldier2012-09-21 19:23:42
There's an orchestra in that score.

Not a big one, but there is... ;)

Hybrid Soldier2012-09-25 22:23:36
And here we go ! :)
