Is it just me or does the “Catwoman” riff (not the main theme) in “Bar Shootout” and “Nothing Out There” sound very much like the main Scarface theme?<br><br>I’ve also noticed that Hans sometimes will write a main tune and a series of riffs for a character, but will mainly incorporate the smaller motifs in the film (Angelica’s music from OST, Megamind’s main tune, Catwoman, etc.) Definitely not a problem though, I like the variety.<br><br>Look at the evolution of Batman’s theme from Begins, where he had the 2-note motif and the actual theme, to here where it’s just the 2 notes and the chord theme. I wonder if that was Chris Nolan’s decision.John Powell answered in Facebook there is still 45 minutes of music outside from the CD.Yep, he knows how to do BIG and small moments. He's so versatile. I'm praying rian johnson uses him for his new trilogyThank you! Glad you enjoyed it.If there is one who can replace John Williams on Star Wars than is it John Powell!!<br><br>Great Job!!
It sounds great ! I think I will listen to the CD after the hamburg concert, to keep the surprise, because they will play some cues there ! <br><br>Are some french JP fans going to Hamburg next week ? It would be great to have a beer and talk about film music !Dear Mr. Zimmer (or those interested), <br><br>  Over the years I have always enjoyed some of the higher-intensity compositions you have produced and made a point of putting my money where my mouth is and actually buying the soundtracks - money well spent. I've used specific songs of your's to get through moments of fatigue at work and also to prepare (silly as it may sound) for sporting events, even working out or running. I found them better than any rock or even electronic-type energetic music, until such a point, naturally, that I'd listened to them too many times and the magic wore off. Some of your songs rise to a crescendo that sometimes are powerful but perhaps lost on those who are unfamiliar with the corresponding movie scene ("Flight" from Man of Steel, it rises gradually but the concept you capture is magnificent, "Time" from Inception as well comes to mind). Some are obviously and undeniably potent like "A Dog Chasing Cars" or, going way back to when I learned of your work, "The Battle" from Gladiator which reminded me of "Mars, the Bringer of War", -- or even the latest "Sea Wall".<br><br>  Admittedly this is odd but I can't help but wonder if despite all the solicitations you must receive it seemed to me I might as well send the following two-fold feedback: in the same way I was pleased to learn that Daft Punk was handling the soundtrack for the modern remake of TRON (and what a fine job they did) I was also heartened to find that you were handling the soundtrack for Blade Runner 2049. It seemed a good sign to me at the time and I knew I would buy a ticket at that point. That was a movie (BR2049) I was worried they would BOTCH much in the same way they completely did whatever it was they did with remake of Total Recall (in which they completely stripped it of its cerebral essence and made it a very long chase-scene). <br><br>  All of this is to express some appreciation and also plug an obscure pianist from Montreal who has been on the CBC and all that, who, when I spoke to him after a show and compared some of his energetic imaginative work (Nostos comes to mind, and damn he hit 99% of those complex piano notes) to your's he admitted it was a dream of his to work with you under any capacity. Of course I suspect nothing will come of this but either way I think it harmless to tip my hat your way as a long-time fan who has utilized your music for motivation many, many, many times and also note that on my esoteric playlists five or six came from you and one or two came from him (Nostos, Il, Hypoctite)<br><br> Lastly, it should be noted for the historians that one time Jean-Michel Blais saved us Canadians (if you do the collective math based on viewership) a great deal of time and intellectual agony. Chevy was running commercials during the NHL playoffs (last year, not the the latest Washington Capitals win) in which an irritating scenario of "real people" were supposed to judge cars/trucks that popped out from behind sliding doors or lifted from basements (aircraft-carrier-style), and the poor fools/actors/allegedly "real people" had to say something nice about it all. It was such garbage. How splendid, how refreshing, then, that they ran a good commercial with someone just winding corners and enjoying driving the damn car to the music, which I recognized as JMB's "Hypocrite". He saved the society a good 10k hours of perniciousness.<br><br>Whew! That's all from me. Love the music, keep it up. Please give JMB a shot I think you'll find his attitude/ethic/skills refreshing. Regardless of that at least it was worthwhile of me to express my appreciation for ten years of masterful original music on your part anyway.Separate question:<br><br>Is Toby Chu part of RCP? I think he had some connections at least right?Why wouldn't Hans go all-out for something that's going to be viewed on this scale? I mean, how hard is it to compose 45 seconds of compelling, original music when you've worked on innumerable 2+ hour films?Woah, Hans actually did good work on this; it's admittedly a bit anonymous-sounding, but the combination of percussion, strings, and choir works in a way that's reminiscent of Angels & Demons (oh, those were the days...).
John just precised this point, i was just too impatient ;)Hubris: Choral Works by John Powell is now available to stream worldwide on all digital platforms! &#128526;<br><br>Also available to download in 192k/24bit high-resolution from johnpowellmusic .com<br>CDs on https ://bit.ly/2lcQ5Ig :) and coming soon to Amazon and other retailers!<br><br>Thank you, everyone, who was a part of this record!<br>Enjoy &#127926;&#127930;Mega cool :) Wann wird dieser Remix released? :)This would be really nice that as the release is only available for download, we had the choice to download it in a better quality than the CD itself. We have no material piece in the  hands, at least we would like to have such a contentment. I do have no action in Qobuz, but that should be a mandatory place for a download only music, for music lovers who like pure instrumental music. ;)<br>I'll be waiting for it !This album is absolutley wonderful!. I loved every second of it. I adore choirs in film music and an album like this is a very welcome treat!<br><br>Great job, Mr. Powell<br>10/10
Absolutely delightful score. Loved it.Where can we buy this "complete score"?What a wonderful soundtrack, I can not stop listening either. When I get home after work, Interstellar is the best soundtrack to listen to in the quiet of dawn. It's to get in touch with the Cosmos. Congratulations Hans Zimmer.from like.....4 years ago?I’m surprised nobody is talking about the expanded score that has leaked...!

THE WORLD OF HANS ZIMMER - A SYMPHONIC CELEBRATION






Tickets & Info at WorldofHansZimmer.com

THE SHOW


From April 2018 “The World of Hans Zimmer – A Symphonic Celebration“ goes on tour throughout Germany, accompanied by longstanding friends and colleagues of the rock star amongst film composers, with Hans Zimmer acting as curator and musical director, even though he himself will not perform at these concerts.

“The World of Hans Zimmer – A Symphonic Celebration” pulls out all the stops: In addition to visually striking projections of film sequences, a symphony orchestra under the direction of Hans Zimmer’s soundtrack conductor Gavin Greenaway creates an intense and unforgettable concert experience which – in contrast to “Hans Zimmer Live” – celebrates Zimmer’s compositions for large orchestra.

Together with a choir and top musicians from Hans Zimmer’s talent factory, such as Pedro Eustache, the flautist from the Pirates of the Caribbean series, and solo violinist Rusana Panfili, it creates a magical sound cosmos, with the hypnotic voice of Lisa Gerrard, whose hymn “Now We Are Free” from Gladiator remains unforgettable, floating above it all.

“The World of Hans Zimmer” – an unforgettable audio-visual concert experience.

Presented by Semmel Concerts, Tomek Productions & RCI Global, LLC.

Mike (OTM)2018-05-08 20:59:28
Hybrid, you said Hans dropped The Last Samurai for now... do you have any idea what tracks he used, though?


Mephariel2018-05-08 22:50:03
Thank you so much for the list. I could be wrong, but from what I seen on YouTube, I think:

The Lion King: This Land / Stampede / Mufasa Dies (could be Under the Stars) / end of The Rightful King

Also, Inception seems like a waste of a performance. The Time piece isn't even the one on the album.


Jonathan Rochat2018-05-11 09:54:43
Mephariel you’re right for the Lion King. in fact I was thinking of « Stampede » from the original album that includes Mufasa Death. Time and Dark Knight were maybe the less good track of the show. IMO, I was surprised by the amount and quality of the Da Vinci Code suite. More than 15 minutes of wonderful music, included the « Poisoned Chalice » track, one of my best Zimmer cue of the « 2000 » .


Mephariel2018-05-11 17:37:33
I still wish Zimmer would play the original version of Chevalier de Sangreal rather than the Inferno version. He played the Inferno version during his Hans Zimmer Live tour and because this tour is more symphonic, I am hoping for the complete original version instead.

Mephariel reply Replies: 21 || 2018-04-30 22:45:57
Based on YouTube videos, the program list confirmed so far:

Mission: Impossible 2
Gladiator
Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron
Pirates of the Caribbean
King Arthur
The Holiday
Rush
The Lion King
The Da Vinci Code
Inception
Kung Fu Panda
Madagascar
Pearl Harbor

From what I read:

Crysis
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

The program is nearly 3 hours long, so a lot must be missing.


Hybrid Soldier2018-04-30 23:19:57
The program is :

The Dark Knight
King Arthur
Mission: Impossible 2
Pearl Harbor
Rush
The Da Vinci Code

Madagascar
Spirit
Kung Fu Panda
The Holiday
Hannibal
The Lion King
Inception
POTC


Mephariel2018-04-30 23:31:02
Thanks Hybrid.

What is the opening introduction cue with all the animals? Did they just made that for the show or is it a Zimmer cue from a movie?


GR72018-05-01 02:05:09
Hybrid, it seems you forgot Gladiator in your program, as a youtube video shows a moment of the concert with The Battle.


Hybrid Soldier2018-05-01 10:02:51
In fact I did ! Gladiator indeed, beautiful suite !

The Wheat / Am I Not Merciful / Battle / Might Of Rome / Now We Are Free


Tim2018-05-01 12:01:42
where is Last Samurai? You've said so many times, that he wrote an epic suite for this event, and now they won't playing it again?


Mephariel2018-05-01 17:20:13
Yeah I was looking forward to The Last Samurai and I was disappointed that I it is not in the program.

But love everything that is on it. I enjoy this show much more than Hans Zimmer Live because with a real orchestra, Zimmer's music sounds so much better and more epic.


Olive2018-05-01 17:39:45
I do not know what the appeal of Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda, Prince of Egypt or Road to The El Dorado would be much better.


Mephariel2018-05-01 17:56:17
I would love Prince of Egypt as well or Beyond Rangoon. I think they didn't want to do two African animated score in a roll. But I really love Kung Fu Panda so I don't mind. The performance however was two short. It is basically just Oogway's Ascend.


Hybrid Soldier2018-05-01 18:05:07
Hans said he fucked The Last Samurai up ! :)

He made something too long and it didn't fit the show... My 2 cents is it'll show up in the next tour, instead ! ;)


Scorefan2018-05-01 21:48:19
@Hybrid, news about a DVD/Blu ray release?


Hybrid Soldier2018-05-01 21:55:22
I said it before, I don't know...


If I do, I'll let everyone know !


mpolonest123 2018-05-01 22:51:59
Hopefully we get a CD/MP3 release like the other tour. There are some pretty cool arrangements in here.


Mike (OTM)2018-05-02 01:52:52
Did Hans actually write new music and expand on the old ideas for these "suites" (almost like writing a sequel with the same themes) or was he mainly just doing transitions between cues?


Mephariel2018-05-02 06:34:39
From what I saw on YouTube, I think they are mostly just suites of the soundtracks. But I think Pearl Harbor had some new material, I could be wrong.


Frenchans2018-05-02 15:21:45
Hey Hybrid ! Do you know which tracks from King Arthur are played in the concert ? :)


Cyberpunk882018-05-02 21:56:13
Can't wait to hear M:I 2, Am I Not Merciful, the Might Of Rome and the track(s) from King Arthur live for the first time! Too bad I have to wait till November


Randy Watson2018-05-03 19:15:21
Watched some clips on Youtube and Pedro Eustache annoys the shit out of me. Would've been better if they ditched him.


Mephariel2018-05-03 20:46:00
Pedro Eustache annoyed the shit out of me when he was performing in Hans Zimmer Live, but I thought he was ok here. His Kung Fu Panda theme is beautiful. However, there are some parts of the Lion King performance where his contributions added an unwanted layer of music.


Dfault2018-05-03 21:01:04
Hi Hybrid, thanks again for the info, much appreciated.


fs2018-05-08 10:41:26
Have seen the concert and i can say it is amazing. Hans says that this time it is a more symphonic version of his pieces compare to last year. In Detail:

The Dark Knight: Short suite. In my opinion one of the few pieces which did work with symphonic only. Did not sound that well. But it was short anyway.
King Arthur: Surprised to hear that. Perfect for that orchestra. Wanted more (yes it was too short) :)
Mission: Impossible 2: Even more surprised to hear this one ! The "Injection" Part is amazing with Lisa's voice.
Pearl Harbor: I think this one was heavily modified. Basically a new version of the piano theme. Very nice.
Rush: The Main Theme. Perfect match with the movie clip in the background and played great.
The Da Vinci Code: That was a tough one. They played more than 15 minutes a sketchbook version from Hans. I liked it but i
guess for some people this might have been a challenge to listen. Not sure if this was on the album.

Madagascar: Not the Main Theme but the "Best Friends" theme which is nice too. Great start into the second half of the concert.
Spirit: A highlight. Orchestra played it epic.
Kung Fu Panda: Very short but beautiful.
The Holiday: I guess this one is unknown by the most but it is a upbeat and good feeling piece so i am sure for most a great surprise.
Hannibal: Love theme from Hannibal.
The Lion King: This time they played only the Hans pieces from it and i loved to hear the Stampede action music ! Lion King is always amazing.
Inception: Time. Played with Hans on piano on the video projection.
POTC: I thought i get tired of the pirates but this one has blown me away: "I dont think now is the best time" played in full epic scale.
Sound was perfect ! Drop Zone theme too ;)

So if you have seen the last years concert this one is different, with lots of new material and different style. Execution is perfect, the players are amazing.

Some minor possible improvements (basically same like last year): Strings and melody layers sometimes get swallowed by the percussion or by pedros flute (which was sometimes one layer too much).


fs2018-05-08 10:50:00
well.. forgot Gladiator lol but it should not be missed as it was with the first battle scenes on the screen. "Mighty rome" scenes were great to listen too.

@hyrid

Is there going to be a concert dvd/br + audio release like other concert?

If not, can you ask hans to please make it so, would love to buy it have it. thanks

Warfighter reply Replies: 0 || 2018-05-01 01:19:36
Are more concerts planned? I read one in Madrid is planned. Also concerts are popping up in Poland and Ukraine (same theme but not this official one it seems.

Mephariel reply Replies: 2 || 2018-04-21 20:23:51
Hybrid, Hollywood in Vienna just announced that Zimmer will be receiving the Max Steiner award. Do you know if the Hollywood in Vienna program the same as the The World of Hans Zimmer program? If it is, King Arthur is confirmed to be in the program as well.


Olive2018-04-23 02:28:01
Probably not. The two are indepedent events.


Mephariel2018-04-23 05:30:24
They are independent events, but I think they are working in conjunction with each other. I based this on the description on the Vienna website. Their program is called The World of Hans Zimmer and some of the arrangements will be written by Zimmer himself. That leads me to believe this year's gala is a bit different and is just a stop for Zimmer's tour.

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 8 || 2018-04-13 15:28:05
So, since people have asked questions about this.

Yes, it is different from the tour, no Hans & his band are not on stage (some of the musicians are back, though).

And YES it's a HZ show, Hans curated, rebuilt & selected the music for it. Hans was part of it from day 1, supervising it.


Scorefan2018-04-13 16:11:12
Thanks for the information Hybrid
Plans for a DVD/BLu Ray Release in the future?


Hybrid Soldier2018-04-13 16:23:14
Isn't that a bit... early ? lol


Mephariel2018-04-13 16:42:38
Hi Hybrid,

I asked this before, but is there a confirm list of soundtracks they will be playing? I read that The Last Samurai, The Da Vinci Code, Pearl Harbor, The Lion King, Gladiator, Inception, and Kung Fu Panda are part of the show.


Hybrid Soldier2018-04-13 16:53:26
No, there's not... And knowing how this works, they'd prefer to keep some of the program hidden as a surprise for the show itself.


Klaus2018-04-14 14:07:39
Hi! There is a confirmed a show in Madrid (Spain), 3 of July in Teatro Real (Royal Theater). See it in his official of the Teatro Real. :)


Dfault2018-04-14 17:12:25
Thanks Hybrid for the work. Keep us posted if any news!


pureocean2018-04-14 19:19:30
I hope, this time will be interpreted at least two track from Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron.


Cyberpunk882018-04-15 11:51:19
I did read in a description of a German trailer for this show that they are gonna play themes from MW2 and Crysis 2 live for the first time, so I think those are kinda confirmed
