Try Amazon.Hello score fans,<br>can someone help me, i am looking for this score but it is not available on itunes outside the USA, who do I contact to make it available for purchase, because this leaves a very big hole in my collection<br><br>max@Hybrid: Do you have the Main Titles Cue from Law & Order: Los Angeles in HQ??There's this problem with this site where if someone tries to name the forum that stuff can be found on, it gets censored, deleted or blocked from being posted at all.Igor,<br>You really, really, really do want him to play Journey to the line, trust me. I went to the London concert lat year and  Journey to the line was one of the most incredibly experiences of my life. It was beautiful. Absolutely perfect. <br><br>Driving Miss Daisy worked so well with his concert. I know we all have our favourites and ones we would like to see. You have to trust Hans though. If next year's concerts are like last year's,  no one will be disappointed. He really knows how to create an amazing experience.
I will be on 6 in London, a long way from Moldova. Please, it will be great to hear Interstellar. I dreamed so much for thisSo, is there finally a way we can listen to this soundtrack in good quality? The samples sounded so awesome but I only seem to find shitty TV-Rips with voice-over online.Biography of Hans Zimmer<br><br>He should write a biography book!Thanks Hybrid, you're the man! Very curious if it works out :)We could tell you, but then Nicolas would have to kill you (and us).
Does anyone have a link to where this expanded version (all 39 tracks) can be downloaded?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 ! lolThan 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>

Is this the only work that actually conducted by Zimmer?

al bundy2013-10-29 14:15:02
I doubt he actually conducted it

tristan2014-08-19 23:46:25

Does anyone know where you can get the sad piano music they played in the contender. If you watch the first episode of the contender series 1 on youtube you can hear it. (Its played right at the start where stallone says "life is a fight"?

Hans Zimmer is scoring the History Channel’s upcoming mini-series The Bible. Zimmer has previously written music for Burnett’s reality show The Contender.

Ds2012-12-31 17:24:56
Woooow 2013 will definitely be a great year for us! There's an extract of this series at /watch?feature=player_embedded&v=S42szZFGmZw#! , the music is pretty beautiful - don't know if it's from Zimmer or not...

Jimmer2012-12-31 17:55:02
Wow, that's awesome. Any new music from Zimmer is exciting and now getting a plethora of new music from the composer next year is really exciting.

@Hybrid: Do you know if the music from said documentary, The Bible, will be released officially on CD or something?

Macejko2012-12-31 18:27:23
The series itself looks shitty though. Cheap and poorly directed.

Jack2012-12-31 19:15:00
A preview of the score is available on Youtube, on the official channel of the series (The Nativity scene).

The Main Theme is not by Hans Zimmer.
Is been composed by Steve Jablonsky, Zimmer is just the score producer.
