I gotta say that short film was spectacular even with I Phone 11, the score by Lorne Balfe fitted very well with the scenes introduced.I'd say that this anthem was pretty great for Zimmer to score a soccer team that has been alive for 25 years.Cheers guys, much appreciated!<br>In my mind I had some video interview though, as I always like watching those as well. I do wonder if there was an extra section on the home release of the movie where ideally there might be.Hans Zimmer is one of the biggest film composers working in the industry today.  He won an Academy Award for his work on The Lion King, and has been nominated for six other films including Gladiator, The Thin Red Line, and As Good As It Gets. With The Last Samurai he celebrates his 100th film score, and SoundtrackNet had an opportunity to talk with Hans a few weeks ago during a rare break in his busy schedule working on Something's Gotta Give.<br><br>You've scored many projects during your career, and The Last Samurai is being touted as your 100th film score…<br><br>Well, I'm terrible with math, so I'm not doing the counting. It could be more, it could be less – but apparently it's the 100th.<br><br>So how did you get involved with the project?<br><br>If you're lucky enough to get nominated for an Oscar, you get invited to the Oscar nominee's luncheon where they hand out these little nomination certificates. There are usually 150 people standing there, and people are invited up in alphabetical order, starting with the As. By the time they get to the Cs, everybody's already back at their table chatting and eating, and while the first people called get thunderous applause, you can imagine what it's like when your name starts with Z!<br><br>So Ed Zwick and I were standing there, waiting at one of these luncheons about four years ago, and we started talking to each other. I asked him what he was working on and he told me about this movie called The Last Samurai, which I thought sounded interesting and I asked him to send me a script. After the script arrived, I didn't hear from him for a long time and I thought he'd forgotten about me, not thinking about how difficult it is to set up a samurai movie these days. The other thing I liked about the project was that Tom Cruise was involved, so it was like returning home, since I've scored a bunch of his movies – I knew we were going to have a good time.<br><br>Did it end up that way?<br><br>Ed and his editor Steve Rosenblum are such gentlemen, so together and professional, and they basically did one cut of the film, screened it, and everyone loved their work. So after this, they had plenty of time to come and hang with me, and while I usually love the re-cutting process because it's a diversionary tactic to keep the director and editor out of my life, these guys were great to have around. <br><br>Of course, my sense of paranoia made me think that something was going wrong all the time, waiting for the other shoe to drop, as it were, but it never happened. Ed phoned this morning and I thought, "Oh my god – rewrite!" It's just how my brain works. But I think he and I feel a bit odd now: we've been seeing each other every day for months, and suddenly we're done. I completely understand why people have a problem finishing a movie, because there's something really nice about the process – completion is far more boring.<br><br>For Samurai, you used Japanese percussions and ethnic woodwinds, without getting too 'Japanese'.<br><br>My problem is that I feel Japanese music is really inaccessible to Western ears, and I was really struggling with this film initially, trying to figure out what I was doing. This idea popped into my head for using Western-style themes, but applying a Japanese aesthetic to them, which sounds great of course, until I had to ask myself what I meant! Actually, I think it's just my way of not overloading certain things with too many colors, or being geometrically precise about my cues and not making them too flowery.<br><br>The Tom Cruise character is one of those nasty drunks at the beginning, who obviously has some serious problems he's trying to deal with, or not deal with. He's obnoxious and restless, suffering sleepless nights and is very un-Tom. For me, this character's journey was about his need to earn tranquility and peace, so within the score there's this very romantic, overblown and passionate theme. It's like a juvenile way of dealing with life and death – the pain and liebestod.<br><br>However, to contrast with these very relentless themes, there are a number of stark, formal and sober pieces, because I wanted to take Tom's character on a journey. He comes from America and ends up in this foreign place where he doesn't speak the language or understand the culture. But at the end of the movie, I want the audience to think that there isn't a more beautiful place for him to be, that he is at home in Japan and finally at peace.<br><br>There are many useless acts of bravery we do out of misguided romanticism, and this movie is full of courageous and dignified acts of bravery. So I wanted to play off these acts, since both the American and Japanese cultures have a concept of heroism, and I just wanted to see if I could play with the nature of the two different concepts.<br><br>So you didn't want to do the stereotypical Japanese thing...<br><br>Absolutely not! Take Akira Kurosawa's Ran, for example, which has this brilliant score where Takemitsu writes Western music, but with an Eastern accent. Somebody asked me a few days ago why As Good As It Gets was European – why did I write a European score for a quintessentially American story? For me, it's because Jack Nicholson was crazy in the movie, and I felt one of the great things about America is how they always think we Europeans are crazy. So by writing a European-styled score, it's my way of saying that Jack is crazy, but it's alright!<br><br>How do you feel about people who criticize your work for not fitting into the time period, like Gladiator?<br><br>The reason I take these jobs is because I'm interested in foreign cultures, and every time I get to work on a movie I'm thrown into the adventure of whatever that culture is, the time, and wherever the story's taking place. So one of the things I'm very careful about is not to be historically correct to the culture, but, on the other hand, not to insult the underlying aesthetics of that culture either. I remember watching Chariots of Fire and thinking how brilliantly the music worked, never missing that it wasn't period instruments! I grew up listening to Bach played by a symphony orchestra – it's the wrong sized orchestra with the wrong instruments, but I don't think that's the point.<br><br>With Gladiator, Pietro Scalia brought in a CD saying "this is Ancient Roman music," and I said, "Says who? You went to the Ancient Roman music store and bought an Ancient Roman music CD? Bullshit!" We're not anthropologists. Look at he costumes Ridley Scott had: they were more Napoleonic than Roman, which was perhaps fitting since Napoleon had stolen all of his good ideas from the Romans regarding how to make his generals look cool – and so did Hitler! So I got criticized for making the "Entry into Rome" cue too Leni Riefenstahl – but that was the joke! I am allowed to have a sense of humor in my music!<br><br>Earlier this summer your credit on Pirates of the Caribbean was "Score Overproduced by". What was the deal with that?<br><br>Well, I thought honesty was a virtue! But seriously, Jerry Bruckheimer quite rightly asked me not to give him "that old-fashioned Pirate music," and Gore Verbinski, who I adore and did The Ring with, said, "Well, it is a pirate movie, so we have to disguise it." In the end, I spent a day and a half writing tunes, Klaus Badelt wrote a lot of stuff, and we rolled up our sleeves, got drunk, behaved in a debauched way, and produced a score!<br><br>There was a lot of criticism regarding that score, but in the end it had to serve the film - which it did. You seem to get a lot of criticism on any project you do.<br><br>I had the misfortune of going onto the Film Score Monthly web site recently to look something up and vanity made me type in my own name. I suddenly realized that you can't ever get it right. Who do people want me to be? The guy that writes Matchstick Men? Or the guy that writes The Rock? Or the guy that writes Driving Miss Daisy? My need is ultimately to write for myself. I mock myself and I'm ironic about the way I speak about it because if I take it too seriously, it would be a pompous and boring thing to do. But at the same time I take each note I write very seriously – none of them are random.<br><br>The Internet Movie Database always lists you as being attached to multiple projects, so I was curious, what's Sharktail?<br><br>I complained to Jeffrey Katzenberg that I couldn't cross any more Red Seas, or deal with any more horses that can't speak – I wanted to do one of the fun animated movies instead. There's also a hip-hop element in Sharktail, and I haven't been there yet, so it's new territory! King Arthur is still in production, and I literally just got the first bits of footage just before you came here.<br><br>Are you working on all of these projects simultaneously?<br><br>I'm thinking about them! I'm also working with Jim Brooks on his new comedy, Spanglish.<br><br>And speaking of comedies, you recently did Matchstick Men for Ridley, which had a very Nino Rota vibe to it....<br><br>And I gave him credit! I thought, what if Nino had written the theme and I was just doing the variations? But I bet I'm going to get criticized for that because it's not like Gladiator.<br><br>So when did you last have a vacation?<br><br>Well, I went to Japan for a couple of days at the end of November for the Japanese premiere of Samurai, but look, I love what I do! In January I'll travel to Morocco because Ridley will be shooting his next movie, Kingdom of Heaven, so that's like a holiday!<br><br>My family and I are going away at Christmas, and what we used to do would be to rent a house in the mountains and go on these skiing holidays. It would be a crappy house, not as nice as the one we live in, my wife was still going to the market, and we're still washing our plates – so it wasn't a vacation, it was a lot of work! It's taken us a long time, but we just figured it out: we're not practical with vacations – we're staying at hotels! But while the Zimmer family isn't talented when it comes to vacations, we're talented when it comes to work!<br><br>I sat through Samurai the other day, and for the first time watched the whole movie from top to tail with everything finished and completed. It felt really good, better than a vacation. But luckily there were enough things wrong for me to think that I learned something from the experience, and now I can't wait for the next project to try these new ideas out.<br><br>The soundtrack to The Last Samurai is available from Elektra Records, and the film is currently in theaters. Matchstick Men is available on Varese Sarabande Records.<br><br>With thanks to Chet Mehta at Chasen & Co, Jason Cienkus at Warner Brothers, and Nina Lynch and Mark Wherry at Media Ventures for helping with this interview. And, of course, special thanks to Hans.Mulan get his release... through Disney+, 4th September.
Mulan is being released on sept 4th. Can't wait to hear Harry's score!!!!Here's an interview about Last Samurai from Soundtrack.net https: //www.soundtrack. net/content/article/?id=112You can find an interview with Hans on his process for TLS on soundtrack.net somewhere, back in 2003 or 2004The tracklist they posted has 58 tracks and yours contains only 54<br>interesting thing, He never really spoke about Last Samurai. but you have to realize, even when He speaks, its not always the truth. <br><br>The only thing I know, in 2013 doing press for Rush, He really said the hardest job was Last Samurai, well its not true according to himself, if you watch the behind the scenes stuff from Matchstick Men from 2003, right there He says that he was working on 3 huge films, (tears of the sun / Pirates / last samurai) and Mathstick men was the absolute hardest for him.<br><br>also Ed Zwick talks about working with Hans on the dvd commentary sometimes, but nothing really fancy.<br><br>Im sure there is an interview for this film with him, since he was at the premier
I am struggling to find an interview where Hans speaks about this soundtrack. Does it even exist? <br>I spent the last hours digging but nothing. I always desired to hear some comments about it, like he does for the other works he's done.<br>I know it's a far stretch for Hans To release docu scores, but am really curious as to what Brave Miss World, Believer and Jalous of the Birds sound like...<br><br><br>@Mephariel<br>You can find Great Bear Rainforest on bleedingfingersmusic.com under Anze RozmanMondo only offered to send me a return label and a refund. No info yet on if they plan to fix it. :-/Mine arrived today and is definitely sped up.LOL klaus badelt hardly composed pirates 1
You know what? I love the booklet credits! Klaus Badelt is the same guy who scored Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.Thanks Hybrid soldier for the good news<br>I can't wait to see the documental film and hear the score of lorne balfe & hans zimmer.A score will be released.<br><br>You can always count on Lorne for that. It's in the works.What was the last Zimmer documentary score that they released outside of BBC? <br><br>I am still waiting for The Great Bear Rainforest.I hope they can the soundtrack release for "Rebuilding Paradise" composed by Hans zimmer & Lorne balfe, including an original song for the film. I hope there is a possibility that they will release the score.

Hi,
I was at your final show in the city of Orange, in France.

I was there with my two little girls ( 4 and 5 years old ) and my girlfriend, and i just can tell to you and your team that this show was awesome.

The entire show frightened me, from the Thelma and Louise theme to The thin red line, Interstellar, Inception.

The whole work you and your team do is fantastic, and we (my little girls, girlfriend & me) were glad to be there.

All of these movies wouldn't have been so great without your songs.

Thanks a lot.

Jean-philippe

Dear, Hans!
I made a small amateur film about the rescue of orca and used your song entitled "Rise" from the movie about Batman. You can give permission for its use in non-commercial purposes to display a larger audience of people?

Is Hans Zimmern aware of the fact that his score from Gladiator has moments of very distinct similarly to works by Gustav Holst? Portions of the score sound almost exactly like "Mars".

Hi Mr Zimmer!

I'm a big fan of yours from Venezuela. I'm a filmmaking student and really interested in the film composing area. For college work, I'm doing a research about your music on these films: Interstellar, Inception, Gladiator and Thelma & Louise.

I would love to show you my work. My email is danielabarillasortega@gmail.com

Thank you for your wonderful work on cinema!

Hi Mr Zimmer, I am a big fan of your work. Recently a Colorbond Steel advertisement was posted on YouTube and the music played in it sounds all to similar to your 'Cornfield Chase' piece from Interstellar. I know i wouldn't want my music to be copied like that so i just thought I'd inform you.
Thanks

Dear Mr. Zimmer,

Two years my co-founder and myself decided to work together for the next ten years. The only thing we knew is that we wanted to use our full potential to make something important for our children.

It was your music for Interstellar that enabled us to dream, travel to the future and to look at the earth from a distant place.

Now two years later we are at the brink of entering in the light.

Our venture is about the power of teams. We believe that in our near future it is not the products that define success it is the team behind it.

Many teams these days live in the “dark” like we did. Still with nothing to show. They are not the ones in the news. They are building muscles, finding courage to do what we are doing. Which is the impossible.

We want to motivate those teams just like your music has motivated us.

We are now in the process of making a video in which we acknowledge the teams that operate in the dark still and give them the courage to step into the light together and shine.

In this video we would love to use the music from the track Mountains from the Interstellar soundtrack. It is the track that helped us in our darkest days to keep pushing and believing. It gave us the means to dig deep inside ourselves.

We would be honored to be able to use your music. Of course we would pay any needed royalties or license fees.

Please contact us on raimo@teamily.com or call us on +31641171116

Thank you for your wonderful music.

Raimo van der Klein

Greetings sir Zimmer. I'll try to keep my comment short. I've been in love with Your music since Crimson Tide and The Rock movie, where I first heard Your master pieces. I own most of Your discography on CDs. I've been to Your concert in Bratislava, and I'm sorry for my boldness, but it was sheer disaster. Nothing Your fan would want. You made the worst of the worst out of some nice songs of Yours, You driven a lot of fans out of the hall in second half, not sure if You noticed, plenty of ViP places were vacant after. With hard heart I write this, but Your so called "concert" was the biggest disaster of my life. It has almost nothing in common with Your divine works, it was just a pure plunder for cash and money. I strongly suggest You use something like Symphonic Orchestra next time. What You did in Bratislava will forever be engraved in the souls of Your true fans, as a day You sold Your soul to some drum'n'bass, grunge and whatever-c*ap music You turned Your master pieces into.


Ds2016-05-15 15:30:16
I really wonder what kind of fan would buy a VIP seat, then be put off by the 1st half of the concert (which includes very faithful interpretations of The Da Vinci Code, Pirates of the Caribbean or Gladiator, among many others), in such a way that they would LEAVE at the intermission, consequently missing other classics such as True Romance, Rain Man, The Thin Red Line or Inception.

And if you really think his music would sound better with a symphonic orchestra... then your so called collection of CDs must be pretty thin... From the start Zimmer's music has been more about rock and electronics than classical music. Try to play Crimson Tide or The Rock or Broken Arrow or Inception with only a symphonic orchestra, good luck with that! It would sound nothing like the original.


DavidS2016-05-15 16:18:34
You know nothing Bryan Fury ;) ...no seriously, the music in the concert was exactly like Hans' music is ment to be!


Bryan Fury2016-05-15 16:54:11
Ds: I actually sat in ViP lounge after first half, for a few minutes, since there were tons of free places, and the true ViP lounges [in the upper rim] were 60-80% empty. Sound in the upper ring was horrid, You couldn't hear a thing, just overwhelming and ultra low quality bass.

ViP places at the bottom were so so, but still, when the Batman theme started, I fleed, because it was nearly tearing my internal organs apart, how strong the bass were. His concert had absolutely nothing to do with his art. Crimson Tide had only a very part of the main theme composed within, there was his choir, which was very weak, all You could hear was always the drums and bass like hell. Lionking was some mix of Lionking 1 and 2 soundtrack, only one part, the first track and some pseudo theme from second. Pirates of Carribean were almost good, yes, they were enjoyable, but they still missed some crucial parts of the main theme. Afaik it was the dead mans chest intro theme, what was played on "concert". Davinci code was of no interest for me, indeed. I wasn't there for Inception, that part I miss [mombasa], it was an encore. I just left, alive, at the Batman theme. Also, back to Crimson Tide. That ending addition of drums was poor excuse for music. There was like few minutes of something that looked like Crimson Tide, and the rest of the track was just bashing into drums, without any notion or reminder of the original theme, nor soundtrack parts.

Whole concert wasn't concert at all, it was just a ruckuss, bashing into drums and totaly cra*tacular sounds stuck together.

Also, I was so dissapointed, there was no The Rock theme, it's one of his best opuses ever.

And I'm not sure if You're having some hearing issues, but Hans's soundtracks are mainly orchestral, vocal, and they have some rock parts in them, very neatly and softly incorporated. I'm listening to Zimmer's opus for almost two decades now, so I believe I still can differ among genres. And Hans's art has nothing to do with drum'n'bass nor grunge, afaik, with rock, yes, a lot, but very good incorporated rock, though mostly, it has to do with orchestral instruments [well, so speaking, he's doing or used to do most of his work on synths, in early 80/90s afaik.].


Hybrid Soldier2016-05-15 18:14:18
"And I'm not sure if You're having some hearing issues, but Hans's soundtracks are mainly orchestral, vocal"

Apparently I've been wrong for many many years... :O Thanks for pointing this out ! lol


Ds2016-05-15 18:54:00
Thanks for the lengthy answer Bryan, but your statement is full of mistakes. Apparently you think you know Hans' music, but it is pretty obvious you dont know it that good. Driving Miss Daisy and Sherlock Holmes were almost copy-pasted from the original tracks. Madagascar was a superior rearrangement and a great intro for the orchestra. Crimson Tide was like the original version, except they extended the climax (which is a spectacular idea). Then Angels and Demons sounded 100% like on album, with a drums intermede inserted in the middle (I net you thought that was still Crimson Tide, lol). Gladiator was a glorious 15min of all the very best pieces from that movie, faithfully arranged. Da Vinci Code was genuine beauty (but you had no interest in it, too bad for you). Then Pirates had the Jack theme, the love theme, an unreleased, fan-favourite cue (awesome gift to the fans, and proof that Hans knows very well how to please us), and then the famous theme everyone on this planet knows.

Dont tell me it is a cashgrab, it is an absolutely wonderful selection, with diverse styles and instrumentation.

Second part had very faithful arrangements of Man of Steel, The Amazing Spiderman 2, Inception, True Romance, Rain Man, Thin Red Line and Interstellar. Admittedly the Dark Knight was full of drums, distorsion, guitars in a very Dark, agressive mood, even more than in the official soundtrack, but those scores were pretty savage to begin with.

So dont blame Hans for being faithful to his music or his fans. Blame yourself for having such a poor knowledge of Hans Zimmer's music. My advise: re-listen to your collection, and purchase the dozens of albums you obviously never checked out :-)

I was at the Vienna concert this friday and it was breathtaking. 16000 people came and the crowd went absolutely crazy when the band started to play Dream Is Collapsing at the end. Nobody left before the end.
The sound was amazing, I can't even think of one thing to complain about.
If you're more into the likes of Hannibal, Last Samurai or Beyond Rangoon then this wasn't the concert for you but there were plenty of recordings from the two london concerts on youtube that would have warned you beforehand that it's going to be loud.

Dear mr Zimmer,

Two years ago I made some big changes in my life. I got divorced, moved into my own apartment and went back to the university to finally become a special education teacher. This has been a dream for me for a long time, but I have never found the time to do something just for myself. I have soon finished my second year and by the next summer I will be able to help my students more. I´m specializing in helping young people who have trouble with reading and writing.

Now to the reason why I´m writing to you. I just wanted to say thank you for your beautiful music! Every time I´m going to write a text or a paper to hand in to the university I listen to the soundtrack to "Inception". I don´t know why, but that music makes it so much easier to write! I get inspired and the fingers just dances like water on the keyboard! So, thank you for helping me while struggling with all my homework! (To be honest, I think the music helps me dream a little bit about Leo too, but that´s a whole different story... ;)

So, thank you!

Best regards,
a fan in Sweden

Dear Hans Zimmer and team!
My dream is for you to check my music, it would be such an honor.
I want to create soundtracks to movies! Maybe you'll have a few minutes to listen to it? I have a lot of original music which I don't share much online yet.
But I've got a few of my originals on YouTube! Maybe you will delete this message, but either way, would be an honor if you could at least listen to some of my music!!! Thank you for everything that you do! You're truly inspiring!!!!
All the best, Yana

Hello:

I'm a big fan of Zimmer's music, but I have encountered a problem that has puzzled me.
I have a mobile terminal with Windows 10, and z+ application does not exist for that operating system.

I think it would be interesting and good to create a version for that system, so we can use this feature.

Thank you.

Danke für das großartige Konzert in Berlin. Es war einfach sensationell !! Mehr als 2 Stunden Gänsehaut. Eine Live-DVD der 2016er Tour wäre mehr als wünschenswert. Alles Gute weiterhin für den "Maestro" und das gesamte Team auf und hinter der Bühne !

Ich habe Ihr Konzert in Köln sehr genossen. Das Beste, was ich bisher in meinem Leben gehört habe. Sehr ergreifend. Bitte produzieren Sie eine DVD von den Liveauftritten des Orchesters.

Hallo und danke für das tolle Konzert in Köln!
Der Sound war phantastisch und auch der LJ hat hat ganze Arbeit geleistet - einziger Wermutstropfen war, daß ich mich sehr über einen persönlichen Kontakt bei einer Signierstunde gefreut hätte, Ihre Signatur hätte sich sicher auf dem ein oder anderen Booklet sehr wohl gefühlt neben der von Lisa. Ich freue mich auf alles weitere aus Ihrer Feder und hoffe auf künftige Konzerte. MfG, Tobias

Hello!

My name is Dmitry Kovalev, we recently rescued orca sandwiched ice floes on the coast of the Sea of Okhotsk (Sakhalin Island, Russia). We have successfully rescued the animal and want to make a video as we struggled with ice, standing in cold water. I ask permission to use the song in the album Rise Hans Zimmer - The Dark Knight Rises - OST. This is a non-profit project aimed to show people that they can help animals in severe situation for them! I really hope for your positive response!
The short film will be used photos with this report and video made the night!

My small tip for the salvation of orca.

"The ice captivity":

His ears still stands weeping and killer whales. Crying literally tearing you apart, feeling that this is your baby cries and you are uncomfortable trying to help him, and you have bad it turns out.
Feeling limited time to give to know salvation. tide time within which it was necessary to help get through the pile of Orca ice and get into clean water.

Floe tossed all that can only be used - hooks, hands, feet, pulling the rope, pushing the boat. We provide an approach to the orca, who was sitting on the rocks.
"Wave," cried the elder. We have deployed a boat sideways to the orca, and the guys in the water, starting from the feet side pull it forward to salvation.
I flew by hour hour was not to sleep. Tired, chosen on the shore, quickly warming up again in cold water, again on ice barricades.
It was evident that the orca is exhausted to the limit, but even in this state has helped swimmers to move. They came to a standstill, stranding !!! blazed a new route. Cold and fatigue do their dirty work, but we are not retreating, we sought to bring the killer whale.
Waves of increased boat in a drunken waltz began to wobble. On the breast of a camera in his hand a pole, a sleeve dripping water, but it is a trifle, which stopped paying attention. The guys in the water was even worse, some experienced involuntary shivering, but you can not give up!
It remained the last ridge of ice, behind which there was clear water.
Swim, native! Oh please! With these thoughts, where aloud to myself, where we continued to remove the animal from the labyrinth.
Gritting his teeth, hits the ice floe, we take them on board the ship
and take off in hand! The path is open! But why did not the killer whale swims ?! It turns out that the engine is heated !!!))))))
I do not know what the sound was like when he gathered himself and swam !!! Our jubilation knew no bounds! We shouted, shouted, cried and smiled at the same time! Orca proudly raised fin and headed for the open sea!

We were overwhelmed with intoxicating happiness of knowing that we saved someone's life !!!
On the right side of the breakwater is slowly engaged colorful dawn! It was delightful!

Dear Mr. Zimmer,

the performance was wonderfull, but i must tell you that the volume was very loud, sometimes the music turned into a lot of combined noise instead of beautifull sound that i expected, some suites where just impressive, but sometimes you coult not here the chior because if the loud music, to bad because i came all the way from Rotterdam Holland.

mabe next time,

With regards,

Cor.

Dear Mr. Zimmer,

it was an awesome show in Oberhausen and i gladly enjoyed every track you played along with your fantastic band members and the awesome orchestra and choir. You give a lot of people a magnificent time with these concerts and that is something truly wonderful. I wouldn't know what to do better, except maybe showing some snippets (or images) from the respective movies. Otherwise i'd love to see that concert on DVD again :)

Greetings from Germany,
Matthias
