@Edmund <br>I still stand by my opinion that Holkenborg scoring Avatar 2 could be pretty interesting. Pairing him up with a director who is known to be strict with his musical choices and continuing on from James Horner’s classic might produce something really good. And seeing his gradual progress as a composer with Mortal Engines and Alita have personally given me some hope (2 years ago I would have said hell no).<br><br>And I’m not surprised by the choice for T6. Not looking forward to this project at all but we did get a cool score from Balfe for the last one so maybe there is some hope for the music at least.I think Terminator is a decent match for JXL's talents (listen to "The March" from Divergent), but this feels like further evidence that James Cameron is grooming him for Avatar 2, which I really hope ends up not being the case.Yes, Tom will be scoring the new Terminator movieChill out Bayhem, if you read my first sentence you can see I dismisded this rumor as crap.<br>But seeing people from his team ivolved and considering the fast and furious situation, I can’t help but wondering if there’s some truth to that rumor.<br>Now for a guy talking about haters, saying that Lorne scores 36million projects and B movies (forgetting mission impossible) I think you’re pushing it a bit.<br>Anyway no hate I don’t care who wrote it I’m just curious about the behind the scenes stuff.You're reaching there a bit Bayhem, I see no one in this thread trying to undermine Steve's work or the score. Hell the first poster was just asking if Lorne worked on it and if so, to what extent. And the "rumor comment" is a logical extension of Lorne's whole regular team being credited on the score, therefore it is possible that he did additional work on it.
Again a "rumor" comment that's trying to undermine Steve's work. And in this case, an entire score. Lorne fans, please stop trying to constantly undermine other composers in favor of your guy. It's childish and extremely disrespectful. You've done it multiple times on these boards. What's next? You gonna claim that Lorne secretly scored the entire Transformers franchise? And Lord of the Rings. And Harry Potter. <br><br>Seriously, it's getting really old, really fast. <br><br>Not to mention the fact that Steve, as a composer, is much, much more experienced and established than Lorne. He's got nothing to prove. Steve takes his time when it comes to scoring. He's choosing carefully. He's got more than enough time to focus on his projects. While Lorne's name is attached to 30 million different projects, some of them cheap B-movies like Hurricane Heist. And you think he's scoring them all by himself? The irony of it all is that if anyone is using ghostwriters most of the time, it's Lorne. Not Steve. And I'm saying that as a Lorne fan as well. I'm not just a Jablonsky fan. I appreciate Lorne's work as well. But I'm not undermining other composers in favor of him.Bay has Lorne scoring his films now cause they established a relationship on 13 Hours, and Bay didn't even want Lorne for that; he wanted Hans but he didn't want to go through the exhausting process of another Bay blockbuster so he brought in Lorne instead.<br>And even then, Hans still worked together with Lorne very closely on the project (Hybrid said he was there for all the meetings, helped with synth programming, etc)Of cause Balfe worked on it .That is why Bay now uses Balfeyou can absolutely hear the 13 hours temp track in Battlefield and We Have to GoNot to mention that Steve and Lorne structure their power anthems differently.<br>To me this score sounds like 100% Steve
I wouldn't say so, Lorne stacks his ostinatos and rhythms on top of each other (see Blackwood, Last Man on the Moon) and shotguns piano writing all over his scores in addition to using it for almost any kind of emotional scene (see Manny, Duck Shoot, Brothers Theme from Hurricane Heist)Well, if all we're using to distinguish Lorne is ostinatos and piano writing, then in that case, he's all over this film!The interesting thing is, that if Lorne did work on it, his work is indistinguishable from Steve's cause I hear none of his ostinatos or extensive piano writing.@Hybrid, a while ago I saw a rumor stating that Lorne Balfe ghostwrote this score and dismissed it as crap.<br>But looking at the credits I see some people from his team have been involved( his assistant Queenie Li as music coordinator, and Max Aruj and Steffen Thum did arrangements..)<br>Do you know why and to which extent he was involved or why his team worked on the score?This little gem of a score is one of my favourites of Lorne's smaller projects.<br>Got a great main theme and varying instrumentations of it throughout, plus he's using a real orchestra which is always good. (Check out The Heist, very upbeat jazzy piece)
Balfe - for anything than bad TV? How much did you smoke tonight? The Mission score must have been a studio decision but Balfe should not be allowed anywhere near a (any) franchise - the dude is a headcase and a total copycat. Tell me one piece that Balfe did that is original?Balfe - for anything than bad TV? How much did you smoke tonight? The Mission score must have been a studio decision but Balfe should not be allowed anywhere near a (any) franchise - the dude is a headcase and a total copycat. Tell me one piece that Balfe did that is original?Looking forward to what Ben's going to do with that movie.Hellboy coming by Sony Classical at 4/5/19Kung Fu Fighting (Celebration Time) on KFP3 also has a HZ credit despite again the booklet not crediting him for anything on it.

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.

Hey guys,

So I am going to see the concert in Munich on the 11th of November. A friend was supposed to join but cannot make it due to work issues. Is anyone interested? The extra ticket I have is in section F1, row 19. Let me know if you are interested. That day is also my birthday, and I don't want to spend it alone, so maybe we can do something nice around that

Hollywood in Vienna: Hans Zimmer was amazing! One of the best concerts I’ve ever been to! I ended up meeting the man himself after the concert! Amazing programme!

Btw Tom cruise said (in a recorded message that was shown at the concert) that he’d be working on Top Gun 2 with Hans! Pretty cool news!

Is Hans no longer married to Suzanne Zimmer? I saw articles from Hollywood in Vienna that he’s now married to Dina De Luca.

That's sad if it is true. I remember her from videos back in the 90's and in many photos with Zimmer himself.

A 5 stars show!



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

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.
