Don't feel bad. You've just summed up why Hans and Lorne make a good team. Lorne is by all accounts a fantastic arranger and can bring out the best in others' ideas but I sometimes find his own compositions are a bit basic or leave me cold. Hans on the other hand always nails the theme and the concept but his scoring to picture to me feels clunky and a bit amateurish, especially when the music is dense. <br><br>Both super talented in their own ways. :-)Is there anyway o get sheet music for Into the pie machine for orchestra?Just saw Maleficent 2. There is a lot more Newton Howard in the movoe than there is on album.<br>I actually can't really understand why they didn't include the reprise of The Christening (the dinner scene) & the finale in the movie.<br><br>Zanelli's score is wonderful and I love it very much. But would have loved this on albumI can't imagine how someone likes Balfe's part over Richters. As you said Thomas, Richters work sounds more like suites, and Balfes work is written more to picture. BUT, it sounds to me also like a typical RCP-work with Hans. While Hans gives the direction with his suites and melodies, Balfe and co are adapting those suites to the specific scenes and writing some "new" stuff to fill any gap if there is any need of it, so they become additional composers in the credits.<br><br>And here, we have the same. Richter shows the direction and some cues are real intense and beautiful. Balfes parts sounding like a gap-filler. I don't want to talk bad about Balfe, he's a composing machine, but still i can't find anything remarkable on those parts and so i can't understand how Richters work hasn't been used but instead the more colorless cues from Balfes part :/<br><br>Again, don't feel insulted guys, it's just my sensationBalfe’s part is the best I think.<br>It also seems written to picture instead of just long suites.<br>My understanding is the Balfe wrote half of the score but the album doesn’t seem to represent that for some reason.
I really liked Richter’s score over balfesI listened Max Richter for years. He is the kind of select or minority composer who does his solo works and soundtrack for movies not so famous. <br>His solo works are really really good with quintet and piano and voice. "on the nature of daylight" is definitely the best. <br>His sountrack is not good as his solo, to be honest. I think "the Leftovers" (2014-2017, HBO series), "Miss Slaone" (2016) and "Mary Queen of Scots" (2019) are cool.<br>If you need some peaceful music for meditation or good sleep, listen to his work.Richter did his recording in january and june 2019. The Director himself is a fan of Richter, so the deadline and director are not the reason.<br>It seemed that producers were not satisfied with Richter's music and they wanted something new, that's why they got Lorne. It turned out Lorne brought a very limited new...@Cercei<br>Hybrid can definitely answer that best. Richter’s score is used (alongside Balfe’s material) as well as some source pieces. If I remember correctly it’s a mish-mash of the two.I do know that piece, it’s very pretty. I’ll check out his other works, thanks for the recommendation. In terms of minimalism I really am into Brian Eno at the moment. His “Music For Airports” and “The Lovely Bones” are excellent if you like more introspective music.
btw, you're saying Lorne recomposed and reworked the entire score. as i haven't seen the movie yet, did the producers end up with not using richters score for it at all and just used the score from Lorne?thanks for your information. but i actually don't understand why they have done that. i've heard now Lornes cues and Richters cues. all those cues from Lorne, they sound very similiar to that what Richter composed, but somehow with less melodies. And you really have to work hard to not use fewer melodies then Richter, as he's a minimalist at its best ^^ with that being said, i can't hear any groundbreaking differences from Lornes part, so what was their idea on hiring it and getting the same style of music, but in a more "light" version? :/i really admire Max Richters work, he isn't that new in this scene. his style is that repeating minimalism. maybe you've heard once the cue "on the nature of daylight" which was used a lot by many other movies. his last score which knocked me out was "Hostiles". such an emotional and intense score, you need to hear that, and probably see the movie as well (with Christian Bale). <br><br>Really surprised at this album, I’ve never really heard anything from Max Richter but I really like what he ended up writing for this score. It surprisingly flows well for a stand alone listen. It’s funny that the producers wanted a different approach, I think Richter nailed it.<br><br>Balfe’s contribution is excellent as well, I particularly like that repeating chord progression (which is starting to become one of his trademarks considering how many times he has used it). It’s disappointing that they didn’t include more of his contribution though, since he apparently rewrote the entire score.Lorne said in his Twitter, the first album for His Dark Materials come 3rd November, no date, for the moment, for the second album.
Was the producersi haven't understood the fact, that Lorne was involved in this. Can someone explain it for me? Was the director not satisfied with Richters music? Was the deadline too near? Or what was the reason why they have brought Lorne to this project?"The Wanderer", "Event Horizon", "You Have To Let Me Go" and "Tuesday (Voiceless)" = WOW WOW WOW!!!Zanelli is no James Newton Howard, but he did a fantastic job with writing a large scale fantasy score. I’ll even say that, while I think the first Maleficent is stronger overall, I personally like the action writing better here. Also 2 little things I’ve noticed;<br><br>1. The new theme here sounds fairly similar to the Father/Son tune from KFP3<br>2. 2:20-3:30 sounds like it may have been temped from the finale of Fantastic Beasts. (Or maybe I’m just crazy lol)Great work of Zanelli, if is not as good like JNH's Maleficent, is a tremendous work, with a terrific writing and orchestrations, even the most tender parts are terrific.

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.

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

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

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.

I just saw the show last night in London and loved the visual integration of the movies into the show .

Overall I reckon I preferred his show last time in London as he did not do interstellar which was really disappointing for me :( I also wish he did more tracks from the dark knight series as they were my faves at his last show.

So I am going to see the concert in Munich on the 11th of November. A friend was supposed to join but cannot make it due to work issues. Is anyone interested? The extra ticket I have is in section F1, row 19. Let me know if you are interested. That day is also my birthday, and I don't want to spend it alone, so maybe we can do something nice around that
