Oh shut up, Putin is a nice guy if you believe his acolytes Like Trumepstania. The Solomon Lane theme is bastardized in The Storm Is Here but in a just really terrible 90s TV synth version. The Kramer theme was of course, actual music, this is Balfe passing out on a synth and pressing a key. <br><br>What is wrong with you if you want to defend this? Surely even the youngest here can see the lack of talent and the piss-taking of Balfe to be critical of what he does. The guy flaunts the fact that he does not know how to compose in front of you.....I could have sworn I had heard the Solomon theme and some of the same<br>Chords that Kraemer had used...<br>My mistake lol<br><br>And Balfe does seem like a genuinely nice person. Hell he even takes the time to put out unreleased music, not something most composers do. <br>That is exactly why I hate when people take personal jabs at composers (usually at Junkie XL for some reason). It’s fine to not like the music, everyone has different tastes, but don’t criticize a composer for writing what he was asked to write.I agree! He actually invited me to come to a recording session in London for this film, man it killed me that I couldn’t afford to go. But I was so thankful he even thought to ask! Top notch guy.Say what you want about Balfe but he's a really nice guy, and always answers my questions on FB and others on twitter.I believe him as I didn't hear anything from Kraemer.
I asked Balfe on Facebook if he used any of Kraemers theme and he said noI Know, Hybrid, just sayin' that i a fan of Benjamin Wallfisch's music Scores since lights Out to Blade Runner 2049 and i say this is another excelent Work from WallfischOne-worded track titles! Reminds me of early days of Media Ventures!<br><br>They sure tried real hard to keep spoilers out of these, didn't they? I suppose I'd take this approach over Latin or irrelevant names, though a little bit of pun and flavor wouldn't have hurt.So you can't wait to hear the score but you already say it's a great score ?<br><br><br>#inceptionAnother great score from Benjamin Wallfisch can't wait to hear the score & see the movie <br><br>Music By Benjamin Wallfisch<br>Additional Music By John Paesano & Adam Hochstatter<br>Orchestra Conducted By Tim Williams<br>Orchestrations By Peter Bateman & David J. Krystal
Why is people saying that Balfe kept some original music from Kraemer? I have listened to the whole score and I didn't found any quotes. Maybe in The Syndicate there is some kind of reference to Kraemer's theme but I don't really know.<br><br>And I have to say that I was expecting Balfe to shine on this one, but I ended up disappointed. There are some great action cues, and I like some things he does with the main theme like the use of choir, but the score as a whole feels like a reuse of many things I have already heard and ends up feeling repetitive and a bit boring. <br>And note that this is my opinion so don't jump into my neck saying this is the best score in the saga, because I think Rogue Nation is a really big step above this. I hope that at least it works in the context of the movie, which I suppose it does really well...Re-listening the score again...….Have to say, Lisbeth Scott's beautiful vocals are definitely one of the highlights. She's amazing. On par with Lisa Gerrard.<br><br>Speaking of, what the hell happened to MV/RC guys incorporating female vocalists in their scores? I've always loved that approach. But it seems that it kinda went away......replaced by more and more sound design! So except for this score (and Steve's Your Highness) is there a recent big MV/RC score that actually features female vocals? Maybe I'm missing some...…..I was wondering that is there a Hans Zimmer library you need to license from Remote Control.<br><br>I kinda saw a composer's Cubase setup and he labeled one of his folders, HZ STR, HZ BRS, and HZ Choir.<br><br>Does Zimmer have a brass and choir sample library you need to have a license for?Easy now Mr. Anonymous, no need to be so superior. <br>I looked up that tracklist, and couldn't find 'Tai Lung Escapes' specifficaly listed, hence asking. Closest there is 'Shogun Mongol Prison', but it's too short to be the whole scene.   <br><br>But I'll try to get a hold of that complete version somehow, looks super interesting.Its just three short bursts of sound, really.
Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention there's also a short track that plays when K walks through Las Vegas past the statues and beehives, but is not listed on the cuesheetIt should be noted that I think a few tracks like 'new model' are put together with the track that came before it on the CD.<br><br>Ossuary<br>Return to Sappers<br>Must Protect the Child<br>Bomb<br>Like a Real Girl<br>Luv in Apartment<br>Mesa Hijack<br><br>I think are the only real missing tracks, and some of them are pretty short anyway.I keep listening to "The Syndicat", which is what I assume to be the theme for The Syndicate. Honestly one of the better villain themes i've heard in a whileFlight has a new Andrew Kawczynski credit...We're getting there!Yeah, you're probably right. <br><br>I guess I thought of it as a Powell cue mostly because between the two main composers, it matched more with his style than Hans', but yeah it's probably Jackman's stuff. <br><br>Either way, I love that track.

THE WORLD OF HANS ZIMMER - A SYMPHONIC CELEBRATION






Tickets & Info at WorldofHansZimmer.com

THE SHOW


From April 2018 “The World of Hans Zimmer – A Symphonic Celebration“ goes on tour throughout Germany, accompanied by longstanding friends and colleagues of the rock star amongst film composers, with Hans Zimmer acting as curator and musical director, even though he himself will not perform at these concerts.

“The World of Hans Zimmer – A Symphonic Celebration” pulls out all the stops: In addition to visually striking projections of film sequences, a symphony orchestra under the direction of Hans Zimmer’s soundtrack conductor Gavin Greenaway creates an intense and unforgettable concert experience which – in contrast to “Hans Zimmer Live” – celebrates Zimmer’s compositions for large orchestra.

Together with a choir and top musicians from Hans Zimmer’s talent factory, such as Pedro Eustache, the flautist from the Pirates of the Caribbean series, and solo violinist Rusana Panfili, it creates a magical sound cosmos, with the hypnotic voice of Lisa Gerrard, whose hymn “Now We Are Free” from Gladiator remains unforgettable, floating above it all.

“The World of Hans Zimmer” – an unforgettable audio-visual concert experience.

Presented by Semmel Concerts, Tomek Productions & RCI Global, LLC.

Mike (OTM)2018-05-08 20:59:28
Hybrid, you said Hans dropped The Last Samurai for now... do you have any idea what tracks he used, though?


Mephariel2018-05-08 22:50:03
Thank you so much for the list. I could be wrong, but from what I seen on YouTube, I think:

The Lion King: This Land / Stampede / Mufasa Dies (could be Under the Stars) / end of The Rightful King

Also, Inception seems like a waste of a performance. The Time piece isn't even the one on the album.


Jonathan Rochat2018-05-11 09:54:43
Mephariel you’re right for the Lion King. in fact I was thinking of « Stampede » from the original album that includes Mufasa Death. Time and Dark Knight were maybe the less good track of the show. IMO, I was surprised by the amount and quality of the Da Vinci Code suite. More than 15 minutes of wonderful music, included the « Poisoned Chalice » track, one of my best Zimmer cue of the « 2000 » .


Mephariel2018-05-11 17:37:33
I still wish Zimmer would play the original version of Chevalier de Sangreal rather than the Inferno version. He played the Inferno version during his Hans Zimmer Live tour and because this tour is more symphonic, I am hoping for the complete original version instead.

Mephariel reply Replies: 21 || 2018-04-30 22:45:57
Based on YouTube videos, the program list confirmed so far:

Mission: Impossible 2
Gladiator
Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron
Pirates of the Caribbean
King Arthur
The Holiday
Rush
The Lion King
The Da Vinci Code
Inception
Kung Fu Panda
Madagascar
Pearl Harbor

From what I read:

Crysis
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

The program is nearly 3 hours long, so a lot must be missing.


Hybrid Soldier2018-04-30 23:19:57
The program is :

The Dark Knight
King Arthur
Mission: Impossible 2
Pearl Harbor
Rush
The Da Vinci Code

Madagascar
Spirit
Kung Fu Panda
The Holiday
Hannibal
The Lion King
Inception
POTC


Mephariel2018-04-30 23:31:02
Thanks Hybrid.

What is the opening introduction cue with all the animals? Did they just made that for the show or is it a Zimmer cue from a movie?


GR72018-05-01 02:05:09
Hybrid, it seems you forgot Gladiator in your program, as a youtube video shows a moment of the concert with The Battle.


Hybrid Soldier2018-05-01 10:02:51
In fact I did ! Gladiator indeed, beautiful suite !

The Wheat / Am I Not Merciful / Battle / Might Of Rome / Now We Are Free


Tim2018-05-01 12:01:42
where is Last Samurai? You've said so many times, that he wrote an epic suite for this event, and now they won't playing it again?


Mephariel2018-05-01 17:20:13
Yeah I was looking forward to The Last Samurai and I was disappointed that I it is not in the program.

But love everything that is on it. I enjoy this show much more than Hans Zimmer Live because with a real orchestra, Zimmer's music sounds so much better and more epic.


Olive2018-05-01 17:39:45
I do not know what the appeal of Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda, Prince of Egypt or Road to The El Dorado would be much better.


Mephariel2018-05-01 17:56:17
I would love Prince of Egypt as well or Beyond Rangoon. I think they didn't want to do two African animated score in a roll. But I really love Kung Fu Panda so I don't mind. The performance however was two short. It is basically just Oogway's Ascend.


Hybrid Soldier2018-05-01 18:05:07
Hans said he fucked The Last Samurai up ! :)

He made something too long and it didn't fit the show... My 2 cents is it'll show up in the next tour, instead ! ;)


Scorefan2018-05-01 21:48:19
@Hybrid, news about a DVD/Blu ray release?


Hybrid Soldier2018-05-01 21:55:22
I said it before, I don't know...


If I do, I'll let everyone know !


mpolonest123 2018-05-01 22:51:59
Hopefully we get a CD/MP3 release like the other tour. There are some pretty cool arrangements in here.


Mike (OTM)2018-05-02 01:52:52
Did Hans actually write new music and expand on the old ideas for these "suites" (almost like writing a sequel with the same themes) or was he mainly just doing transitions between cues?


Mephariel2018-05-02 06:34:39
From what I saw on YouTube, I think they are mostly just suites of the soundtracks. But I think Pearl Harbor had some new material, I could be wrong.


Frenchans2018-05-02 15:21:45
Hey Hybrid ! Do you know which tracks from King Arthur are played in the concert ? :)


Cyberpunk882018-05-02 21:56:13
Can't wait to hear M:I 2, Am I Not Merciful, the Might Of Rome and the track(s) from King Arthur live for the first time! Too bad I have to wait till November


Randy Watson2018-05-03 19:15:21
Watched some clips on Youtube and Pedro Eustache annoys the shit out of me. Would've been better if they ditched him.


Mephariel2018-05-03 20:46:00
Pedro Eustache annoyed the shit out of me when he was performing in Hans Zimmer Live, but I thought he was ok here. His Kung Fu Panda theme is beautiful. However, there are some parts of the Lion King performance where his contributions added an unwanted layer of music.


Dfault2018-05-03 21:01:04
Hi Hybrid, thanks again for the info, much appreciated.


fs2018-05-08 10:41:26
Have seen the concert and i can say it is amazing. Hans says that this time it is a more symphonic version of his pieces compare to last year. In Detail:

The Dark Knight: Short suite. In my opinion one of the few pieces which did work with symphonic only. Did not sound that well. But it was short anyway.
King Arthur: Surprised to hear that. Perfect for that orchestra. Wanted more (yes it was too short) :)
Mission: Impossible 2: Even more surprised to hear this one ! The "Injection" Part is amazing with Lisa's voice.
Pearl Harbor: I think this one was heavily modified. Basically a new version of the piano theme. Very nice.
Rush: The Main Theme. Perfect match with the movie clip in the background and played great.
The Da Vinci Code: That was a tough one. They played more than 15 minutes a sketchbook version from Hans. I liked it but i
guess for some people this might have been a challenge to listen. Not sure if this was on the album.

Madagascar: Not the Main Theme but the "Best Friends" theme which is nice too. Great start into the second half of the concert.
Spirit: A highlight. Orchestra played it epic.
Kung Fu Panda: Very short but beautiful.
The Holiday: I guess this one is unknown by the most but it is a upbeat and good feeling piece so i am sure for most a great surprise.
Hannibal: Love theme from Hannibal.
The Lion King: This time they played only the Hans pieces from it and i loved to hear the Stampede action music ! Lion King is always amazing.
Inception: Time. Played with Hans on piano on the video projection.
POTC: I thought i get tired of the pirates but this one has blown me away: "I dont think now is the best time" played in full epic scale.
Sound was perfect ! Drop Zone theme too ;)

So if you have seen the last years concert this one is different, with lots of new material and different style. Execution is perfect, the players are amazing.

Some minor possible improvements (basically same like last year): Strings and melody layers sometimes get swallowed by the percussion or by pedros flute (which was sometimes one layer too much).


fs2018-05-08 10:50:00
well.. forgot Gladiator lol but it should not be missed as it was with the first battle scenes on the screen. "Mighty rome" scenes were great to listen too.

@hyrid

Is there going to be a concert dvd/br + audio release like other concert?

If not, can you ask hans to please make it so, would love to buy it have it. thanks

Warfighter reply Replies: 0 || 2018-05-01 01:19:36
Are more concerts planned? I read one in Madrid is planned. Also concerts are popping up in Poland and Ukraine (same theme but not this official one it seems.

Mephariel reply Replies: 2 || 2018-04-21 20:23:51
Hybrid, Hollywood in Vienna just announced that Zimmer will be receiving the Max Steiner award. Do you know if the Hollywood in Vienna program the same as the The World of Hans Zimmer program? If it is, King Arthur is confirmed to be in the program as well.


Olive2018-04-23 02:28:01
Probably not. The two are indepedent events.


Mephariel2018-04-23 05:30:24
They are independent events, but I think they are working in conjunction with each other. I based this on the description on the Vienna website. Their program is called The World of Hans Zimmer and some of the arrangements will be written by Zimmer himself. That leads me to believe this year's gala is a bit different and is just a stop for Zimmer's tour.

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 8 || 2018-04-13 15:28:05
So, since people have asked questions about this.

Yes, it is different from the tour, no Hans & his band are not on stage (some of the musicians are back, though).

And YES it's a HZ show, Hans curated, rebuilt & selected the music for it. Hans was part of it from day 1, supervising it.


Scorefan2018-04-13 16:11:12
Thanks for the information Hybrid
Plans for a DVD/BLu Ray Release in the future?


Hybrid Soldier2018-04-13 16:23:14
Isn't that a bit... early ? lol


Mephariel2018-04-13 16:42:38
Hi Hybrid,

I asked this before, but is there a confirm list of soundtracks they will be playing? I read that The Last Samurai, The Da Vinci Code, Pearl Harbor, The Lion King, Gladiator, Inception, and Kung Fu Panda are part of the show.


Hybrid Soldier2018-04-13 16:53:26
No, there's not... And knowing how this works, they'd prefer to keep some of the program hidden as a surprise for the show itself.


Klaus2018-04-14 14:07:39
Hi! There is a confirmed a show in Madrid (Spain), 3 of July in Teatro Real (Royal Theater). See it in his official of the Teatro Real. :)


Dfault2018-04-14 17:12:25
Thanks Hybrid for the work. Keep us posted if any news!


pureocean2018-04-14 19:19:30
I hope, this time will be interpreted at least two track from Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron.


Cyberpunk882018-04-15 11:51:19
I did read in a description of a German trailer for this show that they are gonna play themes from MW2 and Crysis 2 live for the first time, so I think those are kinda confirmed
