@Bob<br><br>Thank you for the enlightment, I will consider opening my wrists for misconduct in the next few days, thank you very much... :o<br><br><br><br>Ok seriously though, you guys should know that if there's one guy that could not care less about awards... it's Hans... :)I am really enjoying his season of the Crown.a big balfe influence in this season with hints of Churchil and Genius I think. Really excellent music/ it's me@ds "Ramin is also doing a lot of projects but is far, far behind in terms of styles and creativity."<br> <br>I think the same for Jablonsky, Zanelli, XL, Jackman and Mancina.@macejko<br><br>"All the time he acts like the hottest shit in town, refusing to score basically everything they offer him"<br><br>You said in another comment that you never read an interview with Powell, so not reason you take that kind of conclusion of your character.<br><br>"The man hides in a cave, doesn't evolve at all and for some mysterious reason he is still revered like a second coming of Jesus Christ."<br>Powell is a clearly talented composer. He suffered criticism at the beginning of his career by sounding like Zimmer, but soon showed substance. And much more than that created an identifiable style, which today is reference to other scores of modern animations (which may be good or bad to depend on of the point of view).<br>Today he is an established composer and it is common for these composers to move away for a few years or even close their careers without many explanations for the public. In recent years we watched the estrangement of Silvestri, Horner, Williams and in the past we saw Faltemeyer, Bill Conti and Brad Fiedel drop their careers when they were at the top of the game.<br><br>" Say anything you will about Lorne Balfe, but at least he is working his ass off and slowly getting better and better"<br><br>As they said in another comment, you're compared to newbies and veterans. Balfe's having the opportunity of his life now. Take it or leave it. There's no choice. Powell, as well as Zimmer others, on the other hand, is a "senior member" of the club. He can afford to go away for a few years to resolve comprehensible personal problems without affecting the hard work he has developed in the last 20 years. Will Balfe continue to be so creative in 10 or 15 years?<br><br>@ds<br><br>"<br>Powell has nothing to prove, he has already mastered all genres"<br><br>That's funny, but it's fair. Powell Is a good composer. Not the best, far from it. Your style really narrows your work down, but we can say that from all the composers out there. So it's not a problem.The problem is he wants to limit his work to animations and fantasy.because he abhors gratuitous violence.<br><br>@george<br><br>". Although, I hate to say it, we could say the same for Zimmer in my opinion"<br><br>Zimmer's at the end of his career. All the other composers when they arrived at 60 years (with the exception of JNH, Goldsmith and Morricone) reduced the amount of projects per year and went on to choose their work best. It's a natural way.Over the years, it tends to get worse with one exception here and there. Don't keep expectations like he's in his prime<br><br>"he has "nothing more to prove", he is creatively dead."<br><br><br>Powell will work with a little more frequently in the coming years (or not) that only depends on his ambitions. However, frankly, he's never going to do three again. 4.5. 6 projects in a year. It takes a lot of motivation for that.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
Just listened to the whole thing, kind of a let down. Nothing interessting except for some action moments. Don’t even recall hearing some sort of theme. Overall it was like listening to Cars 4: Spanish World Cup.I have already listened to The Jumanji Overture and I must say it sounds really great. Let's see how the rest of the score sounds.Tracklist with track duration:<br>01. The Jumanji Overture (03:20)<br>02. Digging Up The Past (01:43)<br>03. Brantfort High (01:09)<br>04. Into The Jungle (01:23)<br>05. Out of Character (02:31)<br>06. The Legend of the Jewel (02:23)<br>07. The Adventure Begins (01:40)<br>08. Special Abilities (01:16)<br>09. The Bikers (03:44)<br>10. Van Pelt (01:00)<br>11. A Test Of Friendship (01:22)<br>12. The Bazaar (01:16)<br>13. Snake Charmer (03:41)<br>14. The Power of Bravestone (01:04)<br>15. Seaplane McDonough (02:17)<br>16. The Missing Piece (01:46)<br>17. Lost In Time (01:18)<br>18. Flirting With Danger (01:36)<br>19. Albino Rhinos (03:44)<br>20. Retrieving the Emerald (01:54)<br>21. Out of Lives (01:49)<br>22. First Kiss (01:22)<br>23. The Jaguars (03:03)<br>24. Ring of Fire (02:07)<br>25. Begin The Climb (01:56)<br>26. Call Out Its Name (02:23)<br>27. leaving Jumanji (03:03)<br>28. An Older Friend (02:40)<br>29. Back To School (01:53)@ds the same for desplat's victory with Budapest Hotel.Maybe. I'd sure be happy for you lot ;) And I'd definitely rather see Powell attached to a project than, say, RGW, Junkie or Desplat. <br><br>That Solo movie is going to be a disaster, though.
One more thing: if indeed the reason for Powell's semi-hiatus was to be with his family as much as possible, we may well see his activity increase again in coming years now that his wife has passed away and his son is close to graduating high school (I couldn't find an exact date of birth for him but I think he's 16 or 17). Him taking on a project as big and ambitious as Star Wars isn't exactly the sign of someone who wants to take it easy. It's too early to say yet though.hans should win the oscar for best sound effects and not for the best music/score. just as a statement.And it's also unfair to use Balfe to criticize Powell. He started working on American projects in 2005 with Batman Begins, and only after 2010 did he receive individual projects. Is it accurate to compare someone who entered the party at the last minute with two others who are in it for 20 (Powell) and 30 (Zimmer)?<br><br>I'm in a hurry and I put everything into a translator. Forgive the many mistakes.<br> <br><br><br>Composers do not need to worry about the attention, acceptance of the public of the same or the same intensity as pop music artists do. There's no need to do that. Occasionally some name draws attention to the public and causes many people to be in the genre, Williams and Zimmer are the main examples that I can bring the table. However it is not because Williams or Zimmer are extremely popular and perhaps worry about the material they are offering to the public who adores them that all the composers of the world need to do equal. Most of these men and women even enxeega as "celebrity". They are more like artisans or the rest of the crew of a film that occupies with the lights, effects and costumes and that will never have the same response from the public as the main actor. And they don't even expect it. So I think it's foolish to wait for Powell to occupy himself in 2,3 movies a year to please a fanbase.<br><br>I'll agree with you when it says it's deplorable to see CPR composers who talk so much about building a single voice and giving emerging talent the opportunity to use so many additional composers (many of them with a possible promise that in the future they will work with Zimmer and thus have the opportunity to show his face in Hollywood.The sense is almost always these.You start with a secondary composer, he arrives at Zimmer and gains some kind of notoriety). But Powell is not the only one who does this. So he should not be the only one's a film score. It has no obligation to provide a pleasant or enjoyable listening experience, and for an award like this that doesn't really come into consideration. So if it works in the film, it did its job and that's all that matters.<br><br>For me personally, as someone who cares about music first and films second, a score like Dunkirk has little value. A few years ago I probably would have been pretty mad about this score winning awards and acclaim (you should have seen how salty I got when The Social Network beat out HTTYD), but these days... *shrug*. I know what I like, Dunkirk isn't it, and that's fine. It wasn't written for me. Do I wish Hans still wrote the kind of music I like? Of course. But he gets to make his own choices as an artist, just as I get to choose what to listen to as a fan.
The score is already on itunes.This score... so many mixed emotions. Does it work for the film? Heck yeah. Does it improve the film? So much so. Did Hans do what he set out to do? Totally. Is it an award winning masterpiece? Um, not so fast.<br><br>Dunkirk, while super effective within the context of the film (I wouldn’t change a thing about it), I must admit, it doesn’t have nearly the same effect as a stand-alone listen. It’s literally the same textures and notes over and over again, just slightly rising and falling in pitch and tempo. Does that make it “award” worthy? I’m not sure. If based solely on the film, you betcha. If based purely on the music itself, I don’t think so. That’s where Interstellar succeeds so far and away over Dunkirk. As a pure listening experience, Interstellar is interesting, multi-layered and emotional. Whereas Dunkirk is just flat, void of any sort of feeling or “actual” music (again, works IN the film). It’s glorified sound FX (save for the end, which, no doubt, is in large part to Ben).<br><br>Hmm... I’ve never had a score tear me apart more than this one. I both love it and hate it. Maybe it did it’s job... lol.<br><br>Excuse me while I go listen to No Time for Caution yet again.I think most of us agree that he should've won for Interstellar but I think Dunkirk deserves it too. The work Hans and the music department did on this movie is just incredible. Must've been a lot of hard work. <br>An award is an award, Hans' 2nd Oscar is long overdue so I'd be glad to see him win. But it would be weird to see him win for THAT score, after all the greatnesses of the past 20 years. Same thing with Morricone who won his only Oscar for his very light and insignificant work on Hateful Eight. Good for the man, good for the fans, but doesn't really make sense. But have Oscars ever made sense? :-phaha hybrid :D made my day

Hans Zimmer’s interest in music began early when he moved to the UK and met established film composer Stanley Myers where they collaborated on films such as My Beautiful Laundrette. In 1988, Hans’ solo work for Rain Man earned him his first Academy Award Nomination for Best Original Score.

From this point Hans has scored more than 120 films which have, combined, grossed over 24 billion dollars at the worldwide box office. He has been honored with an Academy Award®, two Golden Globes®, three Grammys®, an American Music Award and a Tony® Award. His most recent Academy Award nomination for Interstellar marks his 10th career Oscar nomination. In 2003, ASCAP presented him with the prestigious Henry Mancini Award for Lifetime Achievement for his impressive and influential body of work. He also received his Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2010. In 2014, Hans was honored with the Zurich Film Festival Lifetime Achievement Award.


The 2017 tour comes back by popular demand from the 2016 shows across Europe. The sell out shows were rapturously received by critics and the public alike. Incredibly in a Hollywood career that has spanned decades, these were Hans’s first full shows and were made even more special by the appearance of two of Zimmer’s collaborators guitarist Johnny Marr and Pharrell Williams.

Like the Hammersmith shows, ‘Hans Zimmer Live On Tour’ will be a visual spectacular designed and lit by the world-renowned lighting designer Marc Brickman. Marc has worked with everyone from Pink Floyd to Nine Inch Nails to Barbra Streisand and is responsible for the lighting of the Empire State Building in New York. The Hans Zimmer show will not only sound unlike any other it will also look unlike any other

I just came home from watching this concert on the one day theatrical release (Dolby Atmos of course) in Sweden, and was quite disappointed the Wonder Woman theme wasn't included. First I thought it had been edited out, but then found out that this was filmed spring 2016 and the song "Is she with you" from BvsDoJ wasn't included in the setlist back then.

On the 2017 setlists the song is following the Man of Steel suite.

I could have sworn they also did Thunderbird from Thelma & Louise when I watched this concert live in Stockholm in May, but it's not noted in the Swedish setlist so maybe I'm dreaming.

Anyway it's still a great concert and I enjoyed it a lot!

Ds2017-10-23 23:21:23
They played Thelma & Louise in the 2017 tour (and the very last date of the 2016 tour). So you were not dreaming :-p

Geoffrey2017-10-24 20:46:10
In Belgium, 2016, they did play Thunderbird.

Ds2017-10-24 20:53:28
@Geoffrey: in 2016 in Brussels Palais 12 they didnt play it. In 2017 in Antwerp Sportpaleis, they did.

DFault2017-10-26 13:26:40
@DS, confirmed, it was a 2016 coverage, so wonderwoman wasn't included back then. I went to both 2016 and 2017 concerts. In Oberhause they didnt play Rain Man in 2016 also (replaced by Purple Rain), I guess they just make minor changes to whatever feels right. This makes it I think even more unique then a standard mass production straight forward cocnert. I think you see that also postively in the joy the musicans are having :).

Meze2017-11-02 00:16:41
Thats why we have to keep pushing (i do wherever i can) that they release the Frankfurt ‘17 version, they have it recorded not by a film company just normal close-ups. That would be Nice Because Lisa gerrard was there. If we keep wining about it eventually they have too give it free, Because there are so many dvd’s etc from other concerts over and over again. I think hzl. Management for multimedia is a quite worse. They have to look like someone like Joe bonamassa multimedia crew, like every event has a release. And on time!! Hz. Dvd/blu-ray Release was Ofc already finished last year. Has taken too long for release. And only 1release from 2 years is a bit. Poor imho! False info was geven that there was a deluxe version, they have too step up there game. Because ppl want it!

Wow, in this interview (in french) french director Bertrand Tavernier is very violent about Zimmer's music and even the fact he makes concerts !

Ds2017-10-24 21:13:20
He sounds like a very frustrated person, and also inconsistent. How can one say that all Zimmer scores are shit, except Thin Red Line and DUNKIRK? And how can the same person praise Marco Beltrami as an example of talented composer? Sounds like the typical clueless person who knows HZ mostly through Nolan movies and is willing to bash him only because Hans is the biggest name in Hollywood (and I guess that is frustrating when you spend your life making french movies no one will see).

Mephariel2017-10-25 01:53:59
LOL. Marco Beltrami is the worst composer to consistently get big projects. He isn't even Harry Gregson-Williams level, let alone Zimmer level.

Kusi2017-10-25 16:37:18
Marco Beltrami is a good composer and doesn't deserve this meaning I think. I really love his horror scores also I, Robot is great. No composer should have to be compared to other composers I think - they have their own styles and of course their favorite playground

Edmund Meinerts2017-10-25 17:29:32
Yeah, not sure where all this Beltrami hate is coming from. He's not a very consistent composer but when he's good, he's really good.

Waymann2017-10-26 08:45:55
I also liked Beltrali his work for The Snowman. Great score.

There has been lots of talk about the band, but who are the amazing guys, who played in the orchestra? I couldn't even count them, because they were barely visible. Unfortunately the horns were also barely audible, but I guess this was due to Hans being more interested in writing for strings than for horns.

How many orchestra players were there in total? What instruments did they play exactly? And were they a steady crew or were they hired locally?

Meze2017-10-05 21:10:19
You could read All of your questions If you bought a program at the concert > all the information is in it! It’s mostly local orchestra’s and choirs. 14 different orchestra’s + choirs in Total in the whole world! Buy a program. Lol

Yes, but its only the show from 2016.... they have more recorded material from 2017, they should release that as well. Just Like andr&#279; riool has hundreds of outdated dvd's. Lot of ppl like that.....

Mephariel2017-08-04 02:47:35
Is this confirmed to be the 2016 show and not the 2017 show?

I prefer the 2016 show more, but... just a little complaint... why not the very first Hans Zimmer Revealed Show in London with Pharrell Williams etc? However, glad it will finally be released and Tina Guo is part of it!! :-)

UHD Blu-Ray seems to be possible:

The spectacle was captured using the highest quality Dolby technology and is available in 4K with Dolby Atmos sound mix (2K and 5.1 surrounds sound formats also available).

As an added bonus for cinemas, a 10min interview was shot with Hans giving the viewer an insight into the man behind the score of many of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters.

Mephariel2017-08-05 01:02:44

That is the 2016 tour since there is no Wonder Women also no Thelma and Louise.

Hi there!
I would like Hans Zimmer come to Mexico, specially to Guadalajara maybe at the "Telmex Auditorium" or "Diana Theather" it would be so great and special enjoy his live music.
Thank you so much for reading and considering my petition :)

Ich habe die show gestern abends mit meinem sohn im Radio City Music Hall gesehen. Was kann man da sagen - die show war FANTASTISCH. Die band, das Orchester, und die Saenger waren nicht zu fassen. Die show war 3 stunden lang - genau richtig in laenge. Und als ein Muenchner Yid, der schon 50 jahre in NY wohnt, muss ich sagen das es wirklich klasse ist das ein andere Deutscher Yid so ein konzert, das die ganze welt liebt, in New York macht und uns d

Happy and a bit upset by the Arena in Nimes (France).
Good sound, but i expected a special energy in this mystic place, surly i expected too much!!
I thought also that maybe Hans was bored to play and play again the same tracks?! Big challenge to be involved every night for someone creative!!
However...Huge Satnam (my master!!), specials emotions with Czarina, Pedro, Guthrie, Mary, and all the percussionists, the choir,... Tina...Nile...
NB : I miss Ann Marie!
Bye Bye

Was at the Frankfurt show and don't know if there are words to say how awesome it was.

First, what's better than having a concert featuring an extended band, an orchestra and a choir? Only if it's Hans Zimmer leading the concert playing his music. So could it get any better than this? Yes, it actually could, namely this taking place in Hans' homestate Hessen (in Germany), which happens to be my homestate, too. It was so much fun listening to him talking to us "friends" in German and seeing him wearing an Eintracht Frankfurt shirt troughout the first set. But it still got even one more step better with having so many special guests performing this night: Romani Band Kokavakere Lavutára - Sendreiovci (who worked with Hans on "A Game of Shadows") doing the opening, Lisa Gerrard performing "Gladiator" and the premiere of Trevor Horn performing "Video killed the radio star" with Hans live, on which Trevor did a special rap part in German! I hope some of these things end up on the official DVD release. Also Hans' daugher Zoe happened to be in the audience that night.

I personally wish to thank all the amazing musicians, who all played so beautifully and the crew, who made this happen.

Now I'm listening to the pieces they played on and on, liking them more each time.

Of course, my personal highlight was listening to the great Lebo M doing the "Lion King" music.
QUESTION: The "Lea Halalela" part which was sung by his daughter Refi, wasn't this just an instrumental piece in the original film? I could only find renditions from the musical, where it has vocals on it, but on all releases of the film's soundtrack it hasn't. Or did I miss something? Hope you can help me out.

Thanks again,

PS: @Satnam Rangotra "Haben Sie einen Termin?" ;-)

Du hast absolut recht ! Aber sind dir Kameras aufgefallen ? Mir nicht obwohl ich natürlich auch hoffe dass das ganze einen Teil der DVD/Blu ray einnehmen wird.

@Alexander: Naja gefilmt wurde auf jeden Fall, sonst hätten wir ja nichts auf den Bildschirmen links und rechts gesehen. Übrigens war das der einzige Kritikpunkt des abends: Die Bildregie war grottenschlecht. Viel zu oft kam das wichtigste Bühnengeschehen zu spät auf die Bildschirme und die Übergänge waren mies. Wahrscheinlich war das örtliche Kamerateam nicht gut auf die Show vorbereitet gewesen.

Auch klebten an den Tribüneneingängen Hinweiszettel, auf denen stand, das aufgenommen wurde.

@Pit: Thanks! So maybe lyrics were intended but never used in the final film.

Alexander2017-06-30 00:51:11
Naja das stimmt natürlich. Sehe ich genau so wie Du der einzig gute Effekt meiner Meinung nach war das die Rote Linie in journey to the line durch die Seitenbildschirme vergrößert wurde. Hoffen wir mal dass falls etwas auf der DVD/Blu-ray landen sollte das ganze etwas besser aussieht.

Short bits from the zurich concert:

--> the e-guitar mixed with percussion is too loud. During the Dark Knight and Crimson Tide you could barely hear the melody lines played by the strings which is my biggest complain (the only one actually)
--> choir is amazing and can luckily beat the loud drums.
--> music selection is good and most of the time nice medleys
--> live singer are a lot better (on the stage !) than i expected. Especially the lion king and gladiator pieces are well done with the voices.
--> surprisingly long concert with over 3 hours (including 20 minutes break)
--> First half of the concert is perfect ! Good mix of classic and modern pieces/styles. Second half is a bit too much with spiderman, inception, interstellar, man of steel as they are all very percussion heavy. At that point you may get tired of it. Still i was impressed until the last minute and most people in the crowd too i guess.
--> hans said zurich is his 38th show on the tour and he showed no lack of energy. He was quite entertaining during his talk bits.

I hope in some years he will do another tour with some new pieces :)

Thank god they did an additional intro in the Interstellar section with heavy organ, just like in the movie. I kind of missed this the previous year, and brought me right back to when I saw Interstellar Live in London.. And with the addition of the Wonder Woman theme, this was the best show ever. Hope he does another tour somewhere in the near future!

I was at the concert in Frankfurt and you really felt that this was THE BIGGEST Film-music concert ever !!! The scale was amazing ! The crew was very open to the audience and you felt that they had fun too. I had a chat with Satnam (The drummer) during the break and got a nice photo with nile marr, son of johnny marr, and you really felt that they have as much fun as the audience. I hope that a DVD/Blu-ray will come soon ! But everyone here should go to one of hans's concerts. I was on three now and it feels like chilling with friends because the entire band is so open and it doesn't feel like they are untouchable gods of music ! Best experience you can get as a fan !!!

Daniel2017-06-12 07:51:27
How did you manage to have a chat with Satnam?

He definately is one of the best drummers out there, never seen such a talented live playing drummer before.

All of his crew were amazing.

Alexander2017-06-12 19:21:09
It was kinda funny. In the Break some Crew guy was checking somethin on the drums and a few minutes later ( I guess there was a Little problem ) satnam came out and checked something by hisself. To my big surprise Nobody Said something. I wrote with him once After a concert and I sended him a Message "up tomorrow" but it was Short before the concert so he didn't wrote back. I just told him that I am still waiting for a reply. But also Nile marr was very opened. Yea they are all very talented and i Hope there will be backstage Passes one day for Hans Zimmer :)

Jasmine2017-06-22 18:57:36
How long is the concert?

Alexander2017-06-23 00:33:48
It's quite Long ! :) he started at 20:15/08:15pm and they finished Inception at 23:30/11:30pm so You get a 3 Hours Event but I have to say that there is a 20mimutes Long Break but it's still a very Great Time compared to other concerts and it feels very Short !

I was at the show in Frankfurt and it was A+mazing! It really makes all the difference to hear Lisa Gerrard sing Gladiator live - her voice is even more amazing live. She also joined the others for Aurora, which was short yet incredible.
I also loved that Hans was talking so much and all in German haha. Good to know he remembers.

But can I just say: Some people are such idiots. I was seated next to the most stupid couple ever. First of all, they went to the loo in the middle of Journey to the Line. I'd rather wet myself than miss that one, hellooooo??!!!

Even worse - they left the show when Stay way playing.... why would you get up during Stay, and miss the whole Inception suite on top of it??!! My only guess is that they believed the programme in which the setlist ends after Interstellar, and I guess they wanted to be the first in the car park and avoid traffic. Imagine missing Stay Inception because of traffic considerations.

Back to the positive things: They also did Video Killed the Radio Star with the old band, which is not my kind of music, but was really fun. And I loved that Hans' daughter Zoe was there, too! :)

I was at the concert in Forum in Copenhagen, it was a spectacular experience. Normally the sound is therrible there, last experienced with Ennio Morricone, that concert was destroyed by bad sound, but with your concert it worked out to perfection as the sound was turned up loud and took the roof of LOL... my question is, is there a DVD or CD with the set, some of the tunes were fantastic with the small and big modifications, and cant be found in superb quality anywhere...

Bill Koufo2017-05-26 19:50:12
A CD/DVD release was planned for earlier this year, but it was cancelled possibly because of the new tour. I suppose that when this tour is over we 're gonna have news on the release. In the meantime you can check the video recordings from Coachella, the quality is quite good.

F1-TARS2017-06-03 01:02:19
would be good if any information could be given on this, anytime recently have asked the social channels, get no answer what so ever, just ignored.

i was told in an email a year ago regarding the audio recording
'We're currently waiting to the final release date from our team in the US, which we're hoping will be soon. They're working really hard to get it finished for everyone as soon as they can, as we can't wait to share it with all the fans across the globe. As soon as we have further information or a release date we'll be posting about it on our social channels'

Obliviously not working that hard and they can wait to share it with fans lol

I work in a cinema and one of the distributors who deals with theatre and concert films sent us a plan of their 2017 premieres. One of them is "Hans Zimmer Live in Prague"

Probably this is the concert they will also release on DVD/BRD?
I wonder if this was recorded this year or last year.

Do not be late, make sure u come early... concert starts precisely!
Many people was still in line to get inside the arena, when music kicked off!
As a longtime fan since the early nineties with DOT, BOAW, BR, RM I wouldn't miss HZ visiting Copenhagen.

This concert is a in your face tour de force of the best known themes that have made Hans world famous. Since Ridley Scott's Gladiator.
But if you're looking for orchestral work with somber melodic themes, I recommend you stay away. Since this is very HEAVY on the loud side with multiple guitars making your eardrums bleed... I loved every minute of it, in my opinion they could easily have turned the volume up another notch.
I only wished Zimmer could have played more of his older stuff, especially since(mentioned earlier) it was very heavy on guitars. He could easily have put in the likes of: Days of Thunder, K2, MI3, Drop Zone, The Rock, Broken Arrow or Bird on a Wire... scores that are heavy on guitar as well.
Witnessed in forum Copenhagen. Unfortunately not the right venue, this concert demands great acoustics. And I hope he will fixed the issue with the awesome instrument "the Duduk" you could barely hear it playin..

Hedon reply Replies: 2 || 2017-05-10 11:18:31
What is the set list this time?

Any changes from last year's concerts?

Hedon2017-05-21 02:07:23
Ok, since no one bothered to answer I'll do it myself after I have now watched the show in Europe:

Driving Miss Daisy - Sherlock Holmes - Madagascar
Crisom Tide - Angels & Demons
The Da Vinci Code (More like Inferno actually)
The Lion King
Pirates of the caribbean

- Intermission -

True Romance
Rain Man
Thelma & Louise
Man of Steel - Batman vs Superman (Is She With You)
The Thin Red Line
The Amazing Spiderman 2 (Electro suite)
The Dark Knight
Inception (Bonus)

Compared to last year's concert there are minor changes in the arrangements. Flutes and percussion are more present, in particular. We love hi-hats and bass drums, don't we?

My personal highlight was the Electro suite from TASM2. Real badass! Heavy on bass, drums and choirs, perhaps the loudest track of the show. It sounds like Satan himself is making his entrance and tearing the walls apart, which is pretty cool. This track should appeal to any rocker or heavy metal fan.

Hedon2017-05-21 02:21:59
Oh, I forgot to add. As a long time follower/fan of Hans' music, I have to say this: Every lurker on this page, the real fans, should go and see the show. Even if you have to travel abroad. Even if you are afraid of getting out of the house. It's worth it. Watching video clips online is one thing, being there is an experience on a completely different level, you'll have to go experience it for yourself. Or you may very well regret it for the rest of your life.

So, what it looks like there's No Rain Man in the set, please bring Richard harvey back and rain man, please... so this new eustache Guy, known for Yanni performances and annoying waving in the air alot, i hope it's a temporary thing, why does he want to participate in every part. I got nervous.... If you seen the new opening: driving miss daisy, with a modified saxophone or something, you get something like: englishman in new york jazzy notes,..... i dont like iT, U see from everybody's body language That he is not accepted yet, Thx ...

Hi Mk... I truly have no idea what you are talking about... Sorry you don't like me, but I am the winds soloist for the 2017 world tour. It is amazing that you do not find ANYTHING good in what I do [?]... just makes me wonder. And concerning "the band has not accepted him yet" you could not be more wrong [please ask the band members... they will tell you how they feel about me]. I see you have your preferences & I respect that, yet many others differ from your opinion. Anyhow, sorry, but I'm not "temporary thing" & I'm in for the whole tour... God bless you!

Michael Poleschuck2017-04-23 15:49:02
Mr. Eustache, it's really you? It's your first grand concert tour? What the difference between studio work and live shows?

Pedro EUSTACHE2017-04-23 20:34:36

Hi Michael,, this is not my first "grand tour"... I did 11 years with Yanni [1995->2006], & beg. 2017 --before coming with Hans-- I did all six weeks of international tour with Ramin Djawadi's "Game of Thrones-Live"... I have toured with other artists from the international community [diva Persian super-star Googoosh, Alex Acu&#241;a, and others...] & as a guest to many other artists [Riadh Fehri-Tunisia; Ara Gevorgyan-Armenia; Michel Fadel-Lebanon, etc.]. In live performance we have a direct connection with the audience... recording in the studio is a completely different dynamic... yet my reality is the same in both: I play with all my heart for the Creator of the universe--live or in the studio--that remains the same!

Mk2017-04-23 23:27:41
Well, you always get a second chance of course. Good luck!

Kristo762017-04-23 23:28:07
No in my opinion it's not the true pedro eustache just a person behind his screen :) but I like the style of pedro and I hate to hear it live in Paris because I like what it does :)

Mk2017-04-24 03:23:58
Less = more, Hans doesn't need improvised jazz notes added in driving miss daisy and so on.. they we're never there in the first place, this player feels most of the time as a fall by the wayside......

Pirates. Has gone Well in las Vegas, Ok it Will go better and better in time...

i do like the Dudok, Thats not what i Sa&#239;d ... the point is always trying to find More notes in the theme/ part he must play, You can't. Push iT to much...... Thats not Hans zimmer's philosophy, A. Fifth wheel on. A car. We shall see it's not easy to do a new tour........ "creator of the universe. God". There's No such thing. As god, Or. Actually H&#232; is standing on the podium. Called. Hans!

Pedro EUSTACHE2017-04-27 12:02:59
Well here is my last response... this is beyond absurd... & I feel Mr MK is somebody with a weird agenda posing as a fan. Yes, I AM THE REAL PEDRO EUSTACHE [not somebody "posing" for me] & I truly think this is useless... specially with people impossible to exchange honest, constructive opinions with... Please, whoever MK is, please, before you "tear me down" do your homework, & check out what God has blessed me with [yes, even if you don't believe in him, he is real tome... WHEN I ALMOST COMMITTED SUICIDED AFTER MY DAUGHTER—THREE-YEARS OF AGE— DIED OF BRAIN CANCER, JESUS SAVED MY LIVE, SIR!! YES, HE IS THAT REAL TO ME... IN SPITE OF YOUR MOCKERY & DISRESPECTFUL SARCASM... you might be surprised… I have composed & performed a 47 minute long, 12 movement concerto for 21 solo wind instruments of the world with Mtro. Gustavo Dudamel & his extraordinary orchestra, for example, in which I perform Raga Todi in a unique 15-hole bansuri built by myself, or when I mix a fugue Bach-style with Spanish “Bulería” Flamenca, or use a “mirror-form” in the Armenian piece in which the actual musical orchestral score—literally!—‘draws’ the silhouette of mount Ararat, the symbol of Armenia, or a 21/8 piece for the Easter-European section that starts with 12 upright basses slapping & doing ‘pizzicato Bartok’, or etc… you get the picture!!…] or recording three times with Mtro John Williams [missed the fourth time just now: “Star Wars VIII” due to being in world tour w Hans,,, (recordings where in May 2 & 4)—besides MANY other movie scores with Hans, John Powell, John Debney, James-Newton Howard, etc... or building more than 100 instruments, including unique instruments that nobody else in the world has, after doing research in acoustics with highly specialized Ph, D’s in flute & wind acoustics like Dr. John Coltman & Dr. Peter Hoekje, for example… & etc, ETC… My point: this is ridiculous!! I do not have to defend myself from such absurdity... Ah, forgot to mention: I just finished a 242 pages long book on "How to Write our Own Cadenzas in Mozart Style", or my studies of “Musical Phenomenology” with Mtro Markand Thakar--disciple of the genius Sergiu Celibidache--or that I have more than 7 years of Symphonic experience, studied Indian classical music with luminaries like Pnd Ravi Shankar—yes, THE legendary, iconic, irreplaceable & historic Ravi Shankar!— & Pndt. Hariprasad Chaurasia... but wait... I'm wasting my time!!… Mr MK might not even know who these geniuses are!… He just thinks I am a "jazz player”… such rubbish!! …And concerning your mockery of the Creator, please do not make public your ignorance in such an obvious way... THE GREATEST MUSICIAN IN ALL HISTORY: J.S. BACH SAID THAT MUSIC EXISTS TO "GLORIFY GOD & TO SUBLIMATE THE HUMAN SOUL'... but of course, you might not even know who J. S. Bach is… So, I will refrain from honoring your absurdly useless, empty, & strangely biased criticism... And no, sorry, I love Hans, BUT HE IS NOT GOD... He is a wonderful human being with great talent & wonderful heart... Only God is GOD--whether you believe on Him or not--May GOD BLESS YOU sir!! I will not waist more of my time in this... Blessings to all!!

Stephen Hawking2017-04-29 05:19:51
God did not create the universe, Stephen Hawking revealed yesterday. In the flurry of publicity preceding his new book, The Grand Design, to be published next week, he does some serious dissing of the Almighty, declaring him/her/it irrelevant. The point is, he says, that our universe followed inevitably from the laws of nature. But, we might ask, where did they come from?

It is perhaps a bit rich for Hawking to make God redundant after granting him/her/it a celebrity cameo at the end of his multi-million selling A Brief History of Time. In his famous conclusion to the book, Hawking wrote that if scientists could find the most fundamental laws of nature “then we should know the mind of God”. To be fair, he was writing metaphorically – we all know what he meant.

He now suggests that the search for this particular Holy Grail is over, now that scientists have come up with a type of theory, known as M-theory, that may describe the behaviour of all the fundamental particles and force, and even account for the very birth of the universe. If this theory is backed up by experiment, it might perhaps replace all religious accounts of creation – in Hawking’s capacious mind, it already has.
