I was just thinking about new trailer music to Superman, and could just imagine a temp track with Track #1 from this score. From the beginning, scenes of a baby Superman, Kal-El, traveling to Earth, his arrival, discovering abilities, scenes of destruction, him arriving in Metropolis and, towards the end of the track, when the heroic theme kicks in, Superman ripping open his shirt to show the symbol. Great stuff, I think.
I'd really like to know if any of this was actually composed or at least co-composed by Zimmer, 'cause the detailed track info inside the booklet lists all tracks under Henry Jackman. I bet Hans is on this in name only, as he was with HGW's The Whole Wide World and who knows what else...
I'm a little interested who wrote what but what's more interesting is that Henri 4 takes us to the past not only because of the subject matter! The film was shown on European Film Market on February 7th 2009 which means that the music was composed as early as in 2008 while Zimmer experiments with more soloists, less orchestra started with Angels and Demons in 2009. In that way it IS music from the past;)
the absence of thematic material is a shame, but it is great listening. There's not one bad track and some really beautiful moments. the medieval additional music is a real treat as well. Well done Hans and Henry.
