Haha!  Wear the mask. how fitting.yap. and all of the alternates :PI want that "Final Confrontation" cue so much!Most of them are done actually and should have been released a while ago !Hybrid why is HZ scoring so many films lately, has he placed a bet with himself or something? lol<br><br>Looking forward to it. Boss Baby was a really fun score.
I'm confident he would care. Not saying he has any control over it. <br>I don't think Mondo should be making any money from this release. It ought to be canceled and removed from their website. <br><br>It's more than just a tempo issue. The tone is entirely off, and parts that were once pleasing to hear, now sound awful to my ears.<br><br>Seems Mondo is lacking the proper quality control. Hopefully this is a wake up call for them. If enough people avoid buying this album or return it, they'll get the message. I like to see capitalism work properly. <br>Maybe Pope is involved.Great news! The first one is fun, not Zimmer’s best animated score imo but it’s still pretty enjoyable. I almost wish they got Conrad Pope involved again, “Love” is one of the most beautiful cues of the past few years.The first one was quite pretty good.We knew Steve would return for quite some time, but I was surprised Hans would actually return too. But he's very involved with that one.
Who is Hans Zimmerman?i want it so much <3I guess it's only fair that they do shoulder the blame, considering again that releases like these aren't really the norm for them. I still wouldn't expect a recall and replacement, since it'd be a lot of money down the drain there. Their loss ultimately at the end of the day.<br><br>A bit disappointed about the content being the exact same as the leak, as I would've liked some of the film edits or at least the alt mixes I've seen pop up. I guess I'll just have to hope Disney does end up cooperating with LLL sooner than later.You gotta realize one thing, most of the time, Hans doesn't even know about these releases (and honestly I think he doesn't care). Only a few labels like LLL play ball and have him involved (but as Hans doesn't own most of his music, they have no other reason than courtesy to do so).<br><br>As for MI2, people who complained about the "content" instead of the tech aspect of it were goddamn wrong. Yes, the film mixes / OST mixes are pretty different. Because you have suites & sometimes material specifically arranged for the album or alternate cues.<br><br>Mondo having released the final mixes (and I know what Paramount provided them, it's just exactly the same 2 CD set copy that leaked years ago), I have no problem if the content is different.<br><br>And that's the topic on which they answered, James. Technically, they're not wrong, but they are ditching the REAL problem, for which they are responsible for ! The speed issue is on them, not on what they got.Considering the recent issues with the isolated score on Days of Thunder's 4K release sounding very inconsistent, I do wonder if Paramount has simply been poor in preserving stuff. Especially when they mention the studio and not the record label, which might've had a better copy on hand (they did finally put the OST on digital recently, after all).<br><br>I am not going to hold Mondo responsible for this, especially considering they normally do just press the regular OSTs onto LPs. I don't expect them to be fully privy to if a score sounds fine or not, since they're often just given the stuff prepared for them. Besides, repressing records would be a super expensive ordeal, especially with how limited they're often designed to be now.<br><br>And honestly: since no one has made the comparison to Sherlock 2 yet, how bad sounding is it really? I'd much rather it be slightly off than it being complete trash like the Perseverance release of Rain Man was. If HZ was able to let that slide once, then he won't be so worked up over a small tempo issue.
So this is what Mondo had to say about their massive screw up. I've never heard something so stupid in my life. If I had a direct line to Hans Zimmerman himself I'd call him about this. I'm sure he would be interested to know they butchered his album. <br><br>"Hi James,<br><br>I talked with the soundtracks department and here's what they had to say:<br><br>We’ve been made aware of a discrepancy between how the audio sounds on our album versus how it was previously released in original releases.<br><br>Our masters came directly from the studio and from original recording sessions, and we did not do any adjustments to the masters in post other than standard vinyl mastering process. But it seems any previous post production on those original releases, and cues used in the film itself, are absent from our release and may account for the differences you notice.<br><br>We currently do not have any plans on remastering the score."<br>Great. Thx.<br><br>Score has much similarities with Sherlock, so there is many of Lorne's cues...Known credits are Runaway Train for Mazzaro (was on his website), for Andrew K : The Rangers, Cannibal, Dead Rangers & Finish Him (on his Soundcloud). Geoff is the only guy with Ann Marie Simpson that got the privilege of cuesheet credit.
<br>
<br>Battle of Aughrim arrangement (so everything lifted from "Silver") is Hans & Ann Marie.
<br>
<br>Geoff did a good part of the score, every other classical pieces arrangements are his (so, everywhere the William Tell Overture appears). Train Chase, the End Credits, This Is A Robbery.
<br>
<br>The stuff that sounds more or less like Sherlock have definitely Lorne. And I suspect a bit more epic drama have RGW.Hello there!<br>Hybrid, do we have some composer's credits on this score?<br>Or this is situation like on Transformers score?<br><br>Somewhere I read that Geoff Zanelli helped Hans on Train Chase (pts 1&2), Mazzaro did Runaway Train and Kawczynski did like 2 or 3 tracks (the rangers, finish him). Is that correct?<br><br>btw good score, not genius, but pretty good action score.<br><br>Made in Italy<br><br>Beautiful new score by Alex Belcher, check it out!

A masterpiece!!!!Much better from Live in Prague. Sherlock Holmes fantasy and Mission Impossible 2 is truly Fantastic!!! There is any chance for Blue-ray???

That mission impossible 2 suite part 1 is so amazing


Mephariel2019-03-15 15:51:06
Yes it is. I am very surprised that I like Gladiator the least. I think there is something a bit off about that program, especially how loud the background music is during Lisa Gerrard's performance. But man...Pirates, The Lion King, Inception, Spirit, The Holiday, MI2 are orgasmic good.

Really hope he does a World of Hans Zimmer 2 with music from The Last Samurai, Beyond Rangoon, The Prince of Egypt, etc.


...2019-03-15 17:36:31
This CD is so much better than HZ Live in Prague.


Mephariel2019-03-15 17:43:38
No kidding. Hans Zimmer Live was made for the fans.

This was made for music lovers.


Mike2019-03-15 20:29:47
The presentation as a whole here is way better than I expected, and IMO, puts Hans Zimmer Live to shame. I think this does more justice to the music.


Ds2019-03-16 17:19:21
TWOHZ doesn't put anything to shame. If it exists, it's basically because 'Hans Zimmer Live' came before, and it got massively successful, so they created this alternate program. Now we're maybe feeling this whole program is better, but isn't it perhaps because by now we're so used to the HZL program? I've known it since 2014, I've seen it 3 times live, a couple of times on blu-ray and Netflix, and listened to the album many, many times. So of course now TWOHZ has a "fresher" feeling. I think if TWOHZ came before, first of all it probably wouldn't have been that successful... and people would be complaining about the lack of Driving Miss Daisy, True Romance, Man Of Steel, The Thin Red Line, Interstellar...

There isn't room for everything in one concert, so it's great to have 2 different programs without too much overlap. That's it :)


...2019-03-16 17:33:19
The program has nothing to do with it... This is much closer to the music that Zimmer actually wrote for the movies. HZ live is some rock show that doesn't have much to do with the original scores and I just think this is way better! I am a big zimmer fan, but I didn't go to HZ live because I just couldn't stand the arrangements and performances of that tour.


mpolonest123 2019-03-16 19:45:30
I really don’t get the comparisons, they are both two completely different things. I love HZ Live simply because it’s a cool, rock spin on Zimmer’s music. This, on the other hand, is a more traditional approach that sounds amazing and closer to the music as heard in film. For me personally neither are better or worse, I actually think they both work extremely well.

My only complaint: still no live performance of “Too Many Notes, Not Enough Rests” ;)


Mephariel2019-03-16 19:47:48
To be fair, Hans Zimmer Live has its charms. Some of the soloist performances are truly spectacular, like Guo's Pirate sequence. Also, HZL presented Zimmer's music in ways we haven't seen or heard before. It is also a celebration of electronic music, something TWOHZ isn't. So DS is right that both programs compliment each other.


rockhound2019-03-17 07:53:58
in my opionion, alot of tracks in Hans Zimmer Live In Prague are just weak arrangements. some of them turn actually just into noise. Crimson Tide/160BPM; The Thin Red Line; Inception and Interstellar. also the soloists were often just a waste. they were playing, the camera was on them, but you couldnt hear them. but i have to say, Gladiator with Czarina Russell was amazing, much better than with Lisa Gerrard. in the end, i also prefer TWOHZ, because it represents his music much better. also the program is more varied.


Ds2019-03-17 17:44:44
I'm not sure, did you call the Thin Red Line live arrangement "noise"?? That's probably my favourite thing from this whole concert, such a massive improvement on the original version, it's incredibly immersive and it reaches levels of power and intensity words couldn't describe.

As Mephariel says, TWOHZ is a straightforward rendition of pieces we know, with little modification, while HZL is a reworking of the music as Hans himself thinks is best. Both have their charm and their use.

And after all that's why we like Hans in the first place: he doesn't do anything like anyone. He proved it with his music throughout his career, and he proved it again with his shows :-)


Mike2019-03-18 16:50:44
The stuff that didn't really do it in HZ Live for me were the "rockified" versions of No time For Caution and the Moody Bruce TDKR suite. Making those pieces sound like they did weakened their power, IMO. They were too guitar-and-drums heavy and I just preferred the originals. Otherwise, HZ Live was pretty good. There was some hyperbole in my comment about putting it to shame. But overall I definitely would rather have The World of Hans Zimmer approach.

Mike reply Replies: 1 || 2019-03-15 20:45:17
The Gladiator stuff got misnamed on this release, lol... Part 1 is The Wheat + Am I Not Merciful, and Part 2 is a short version of The Battle.


Mephariel2019-03-15 21:54:15
Yeah totally.

I am not sure where they got "Elysium" from. Part 2 is The Battle + The Might of Rome.

Interesting news. Hans Zimmer is scoring a Cirque du Soleil show:

The acclaimed Hollywood composer Hans Zimmer is performing three original pieces in the show. Zimmer has won an Oscar for Best Original Score for “The Lion King,” and also created the music for the “Pirates of the Caribbean” series, “Interstellar,” “Gladiator,” “Inception,” “Dunkirk,” and “The Dark Knight Trilogy.”

André Kasten and Leah Moyer, the show’s co-writers and directors, have been using Zimmer’s compositions as inspiration in developing music for their own scenes. Thus, they were thrilled to have him in the pool.

“‘Now We Are Free’ from ‘Gladiator’ is one of my all-time favorite songs,” Kasten said during a break in Monday’s rehearsal. “This whole show is original music, and it’s a dream to have him be a part of it.”

Moyer added, “He creates worlds with his music so it’s such a perfect blend, with what we like to do visually with his music.”

Hybrid,
Do you know if the missing pieces from the Hollywood in vienna show are included in the official CD release??


Kalman2019-02-13 16:09:02
I don't know what was missing in Vienna (unfortunately I didn't manage to get a ticket :( ), but according to amazon.de the tracklist is the same as that of the usual show (I suppose the last four nameless tracks of Disc 1 are from The da Vinci Code):

Paul2019-02-13 17:15:10
As far as i know, its missing pearl harbor, and king Arthur


...2019-02-13 17:15:26
Everything seems to be there (including best friends which wasn’t performed in Vienna). The only thing missing seems to be the Sherlock Holmes suite (which was performed in Vienna but not in any other WOHZ concert.

It’s great that they choose the Vienna performance for the Cd because the orchestra performing in Vienna is much better than the one that plays the regular WOHZ concerts!


...2019-02-13 17:38:04
@Paul The Vienna concert only missed Best Friends. King Arthur, Pearl Harbor and the full Gladiator suite were just missing from the Austrian TV broadcast.

The Vienna concert also had a Sherlock Holmes performance which seems to be missing from this CD.


Mephariel2019-02-13 20:17:56
I think the CD will contain music from The World of Hans Zimmer not Hollywood in Vienna, even though they are almost the same show. There are some clear differences though.

And Hollywood in Vienna contains Pearl Harbor and King Arthur, it is just that they didn't broadcast those programs due to time constraint.

So, if I remember well, this should be released this Friday, but I don’t see any news or announcement about that. Is it normal or should we expect a delay regardless the release date ?

Well, just as long as der Balfmeister has no say in this. Not that it's going to be bad, but that it will just sound average, this is the Balfe method. Nothing to challenge nothing to gain. Total vapid everyone-is-okay nonsense, that is our Balfe, no creativity.

Well color me excited! Hope they make a film out of one of the shows like they did with the Prague one.


Evenstar2018-10-15 12:36:22
Awesome!!


Mephariel2018-10-15 16:52:32
Great News. I thought we will have to wait until end of 2019 at the earliest.


Evenstar2018-10-17 20:12:41
Especially can't wait for the Mission Impossible 2 mix.


snsguy2018-12-10 18:41:08
Will there be a Blu-ray release for this as well. I had heard that the Hollywood in Vienna award show that is essentially the same set would get a Blu-ray release.


Quinn2019-01-02 22:38:46
I certainly hope they will make a movie out of this fantastic show. The artists participating in this show are absolute talents too. Pedro Eustache, Amir John Haddad, name them! I really don't want to miss this show. There's many with us who don't have the luck or money to go to the show so I hope they will bring this out on DVD. The Hollywood in Vienna show in 2018 was wonderful as well with the same bunch of artists!


Quinn2019-01-02 22:39:32
Great! A dvd as well?
