Oh, okay then. It still seems strange to me though - why release ''The Classics'' album at all, when there will be a live concert CD? By the way, I just checked on IMDb that the realease for the blu-ray (if I understand correctly) is 14th of February, 2017. So maybe the audio will come together, or a bit sooner. I still hope for the autumn of this year.Aaaaah, this is a totally different album! This is just a compilation of HZ greatest hits performed by different artists. Nothing to do with the concert recording itself.Yes, the source is the booklet I bought in Zimmer's concert. It says "Coming this autumn - the recording event of the year! / The Landmark new album with stunning new arrangements". I'm not a 100% sure this is THE Wembley record, but I don't think they would release two albums that would be basically identical - the best of (live)... This one's also available for the pre-order now. The album is titled ''Hans Zimmer - The Classics" however, but the artwork is to be changed (it's what was written on the booklet I have) so maybe the title will be changed as well... Oh, there you go, just checked the date on Amazon - 14th of October.<br><br>https://www.amazon.co.uk/Hans-Zimmer-Classics/dp/B01DP426UE/ ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1466851410&sr=8-4&keywords=hans+zimme r<br><br>Oh, and the source for the video (blu-ray) release is basically IMDb.JR: about choir... Eric Whitacre is listed as "additional music composer" here, so I guess there will be quite a lot of choir, even with the electronics!That's the first time in weeks I see a somewhat specific release date of the Wembly audio... Do you have a source by any chance?
Okay thanks. And what about choir ?I don't hear any Lorne in this score.Too bad, it's a great track.This fall - audio. Sometime in 2017 - video.Strange. All traces of the album have been removed from the label's portals and Amazon.
Does anybody know something about the Live-CD? I mean the tour is over now it's time to publish the Wembley record. :)Thanks! That's quite a bit of Jason Soudah.That's true with Lorne. It wasn't until I heard The Sweeney (among other things) that I realized just how much he brought to Inception. Ditto with those Skylander scores and Megamind. We haven't heard enough solo work from Maz and Kaw to be able to tell (I don't think Kaw has a solo score yet, and Maz' Bullet to the Head was too stylistically disparate to be able to draw any conclusions from it).<br><br>I also wonder what will happen with Jasha Klebe. That Ukraine documentary score he did last year was pretty nice.The film, which of course had an impact on the score process...<br><br><br>Actually they recorded an orchestra a few months back in Vienna for a bunch of cues. The rest will all be electronics.It is, indeed, unreleased.
I can't find A40 Overhead Section anywhere. I doubt it was ever released for sale, but Bernard Rose probably has it stored somewhere or something. I agree, beautiful track, and Hans Zimmer's tracks really gave the film a nostalgic, otherworldly atmosphere.What was a mess, Hybrid, the film or the music process?Maybe the best soundtrack of the serie (with season 2) "The red Woman" and "my watch has ended" are my favorite! But shame we don't have a new Dothraki theme and where is the beautiful theme that we can hear on the credit of the episode 7 (Riverrun/Kingsleyer theme)? I was hoping for this two themes, so sad :(Way more excited to listen to this than to see the movie......it doesn't look very good. That new trailer was REALLY bad. lolMe too!

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 Channelís upcoming mini-series The Bible. Zimmer has previously written music for Burnettís 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.
