Lorne Balfe score for Fallout was perfection so would be perfect for a Chris Nolan film. He also has worked with him on Dunkirk and Inception.But I expect and hope Hans is doing the score .If Hans is notworking with Nolan then Lorne Balfe should do it .So... Can it be considered as the second CD? Or something like that?<br>If Nolan is not working with Zimmer, Ludwig Göransson would be a dream choice for me. I really think he is an up and coming composer capable of great things. <br><br>But of course, I rather Nolan stick with Zimmer.Ludwig Göransson
Nolan's movie IT IS CONFIRMED ;)As much as I liked Julyan's work - especially his score for Insomnia, don't think it would work. I mention Lorne because he has worked with Nolan as part of Zimmer's team and his sound is very familiar to Zimmer's. <br><br>Of course, everything is kept under wraps. I personally think Zimmer doesn't want to confirm his involvement so that he doesn't get asked about it. I mean the film starts filming in three months and we only have a date. Hans usually starts very early on Nolan's films that's what surprises me the most, if he really is in the dark with this one.I really can't see Nolan going back to Julyan. The guy's a TV composer at heart. He's not suited for these big epics Nolan keeps making. The last "major" movie he scored was The Cabin the Woods in 2012.Trust me, I hope so !Stay calm folks, the name of the film has not yet been disclosed. When it announced, you see there ''Music by HANS ZIMMER''
To be honest, Dunkirk kind of sounded like Nolan asking Hans to take inspiration from David Julyan anyway. In some ways.If Hans wouldn't score a Nolan project, just expect David Julyan, they are close friends you know...I certainly expect that Hans will score the Nolan movie, but we'll see. It's certainly possible that, like other directors Hans has worked with off and on, Nolan won't choose Zimmer for every project moving forward, but will still collaborate with him again on the right project. We'll see, I guess.To me, Nolan and Zimmer have become inseparable so I'd be really surprised if he doesn't score the film. But if not Zimmer than who? Balfe? :D - Hope I didn't open the floodgates of hell... <br><br>Anyway, super excited and happy that Zimmer is scoring Dune. It was an obvious choice just glad it was confirmed - Would've also liked a collab with Wallfisch since BR2049 is one of my favorite scores.I hope Nolan and Hans haven't had a falling out.... I may not like every single choice they've made, but I always enjoy their collaborations and look forward to them.
Apparently Zimmer didn't have a good time on Dunkirk (according to Nolan himself) but I never got the feeling that they weren't happy in the end about the score.WHAAAAAATTTTTT? Nolan's movie is not confirmed??? But Nolan-Zimmer is the rule, no? But why wouldn't Hans score Nolan's movie? Did something happen between them?Wait wait wait Nolan's movie for Hans is not confirmed... Far from it...This is also releasing in 2020. How many movies are up for release now from 2019-2020, Lion King, Dark Phoenix, Wonder Woman 2, Top Gun - Maverick, SpongeBob, Nolan's movie, this, and that BBC show. We are gonna get so much stuff. I am very excited.YES!!!!!<br><br>So happy that Villeneuve is directing and Zimmer is attached to score. While I know it’s unlikely I hope this score is more than just sound design, there is so much opportunity here to write some kickass music.

That mission impossible 2 suite part 1 is so amazing


Mephariel2019-03-15 15:51:06
Yes it is. I am very surprised that I like Gladiator the least. I think there is something a bit off about that program, especially how loud the background music is during Lisa Gerrard's performance. But man...Pirates, The Lion King, Inception, Spirit, The Holiday, MI2 are orgasmic good.

Really hope he does a World of Hans Zimmer 2 with music from The Last Samurai, Beyond Rangoon, The Prince of Egypt, etc.


...2019-03-15 17:36:31
This CD is so much better than HZ Live in Prague.


Mephariel2019-03-15 17:43:38
No kidding. Hans Zimmer Live was made for the fans.

This was made for music lovers.


Mike2019-03-15 20:29:47
The presentation as a whole here is way better than I expected, and IMO, puts Hans Zimmer Live to shame. I think this does more justice to the music.


Ds2019-03-16 17:19:21
TWOHZ doesn't put anything to shame. If it exists, it's basically because 'Hans Zimmer Live' came before, and it got massively successful, so they created this alternate program. Now we're maybe feeling this whole program is better, but isn't it perhaps because by now we're so used to the HZL program? I've known it since 2014, I've seen it 3 times live, a couple of times on blu-ray and Netflix, and listened to the album many, many times. So of course now TWOHZ has a "fresher" feeling. I think if TWOHZ came before, first of all it probably wouldn't have been that successful... and people would be complaining about the lack of Driving Miss Daisy, True Romance, Man Of Steel, The Thin Red Line, Interstellar...

There isn't room for everything in one concert, so it's great to have 2 different programs without too much overlap. That's it :)


...2019-03-16 17:33:19
The program has nothing to do with it... This is much closer to the music that Zimmer actually wrote for the movies. HZ live is some rock show that doesn't have much to do with the original scores and I just think this is way better! I am a big zimmer fan, but I didn't go to HZ live because I just couldn't stand the arrangements and performances of that tour.


mpolonest123 2019-03-16 19:45:30
I really don’t get the comparisons, they are both two completely different things. I love HZ Live simply because it’s a cool, rock spin on Zimmer’s music. This, on the other hand, is a more traditional approach that sounds amazing and closer to the music as heard in film. For me personally neither are better or worse, I actually think they both work extremely well.

My only complaint: still no live performance of “Too Many Notes, Not Enough Rests” ;)


Mephariel2019-03-16 19:47:48
To be fair, Hans Zimmer Live has its charms. Some of the soloist performances are truly spectacular, like Guo's Pirate sequence. Also, HZL presented Zimmer's music in ways we haven't seen or heard before. It is also a celebration of electronic music, something TWOHZ isn't. So DS is right that both programs compliment each other.


rockhound2019-03-17 07:53:58
in my opionion, alot of tracks in Hans Zimmer Live In Prague are just weak arrangements. some of them turn actually just into noise. Crimson Tide/160BPM; The Thin Red Line; Inception and Interstellar. also the soloists were often just a waste. they were playing, the camera was on them, but you couldnt hear them. but i have to say, Gladiator with Czarina Russell was amazing, much better than with Lisa Gerrard. in the end, i also prefer TWOHZ, because it represents his music much better. also the program is more varied.


Ds2019-03-17 17:44:44
I'm not sure, did you call the Thin Red Line live arrangement "noise"?? That's probably my favourite thing from this whole concert, such a massive improvement on the original version, it's incredibly immersive and it reaches levels of power and intensity words couldn't describe.

As Mephariel says, TWOHZ is a straightforward rendition of pieces we know, with little modification, while HZL is a reworking of the music as Hans himself thinks is best. Both have their charm and their use.

And after all that's why we like Hans in the first place: he doesn't do anything like anyone. He proved it with his music throughout his career, and he proved it again with his shows :-)


Mike2019-03-18 16:50:44
The stuff that didn't really do it in HZ Live for me were the "rockified" versions of No time For Caution and the Moody Bruce TDKR suite. Making those pieces sound like they did weakened their power, IMO. They were too guitar-and-drums heavy and I just preferred the originals. Otherwise, HZ Live was pretty good. There was some hyperbole in my comment about putting it to shame. But overall I definitely would rather have The World of Hans Zimmer approach.

The Gladiator stuff got misnamed on this release, lol... Part 1 is The Wheat + Am I Not Merciful, and Part 2 is a short version of The Battle.


Mephariel2019-03-15 21:54:15
Yeah totally.

I am not sure where they got "Elysium" from. Part 2 is The Battle + The Might of Rome.

Interesting news. Hans Zimmer is scoring a Cirque du Soleil show:

The acclaimed Hollywood composer Hans Zimmer is performing three original pieces in the show. Zimmer has won an Oscar for Best Original Score for “The Lion King,” and also created the music for the “Pirates of the Caribbean” series, “Interstellar,” “Gladiator,” “Inception,” “Dunkirk,” and “The Dark Knight Trilogy.”

André Kasten and Leah Moyer, the show’s co-writers and directors, have been using Zimmer’s compositions as inspiration in developing music for their own scenes. Thus, they were thrilled to have him in the pool.

“‘Now We Are Free’ from ‘Gladiator’ is one of my all-time favorite songs,” Kasten said during a break in Monday’s rehearsal. “This whole show is original music, and it’s a dream to have him be a part of it.”

Moyer added, “He creates worlds with his music so it’s such a perfect blend, with what we like to do visually with his music.”

Hybrid,
Do you know if the missing pieces from the Hollywood in vienna show are included in the official CD release??


Kalman2019-02-13 16:09:02
I don't know what was missing in Vienna (unfortunately I didn't manage to get a ticket :( ), but according to amazon.de the tracklist is the same as that of the usual show (I suppose the last four nameless tracks of Disc 1 are from The da Vinci Code):

Paul2019-02-13 17:15:10
As far as i know, its missing pearl harbor, and king Arthur


...2019-02-13 17:15:26
Everything seems to be there (including best friends which wasn’t performed in Vienna). The only thing missing seems to be the Sherlock Holmes suite (which was performed in Vienna but not in any other WOHZ concert.

It’s great that they choose the Vienna performance for the Cd because the orchestra performing in Vienna is much better than the one that plays the regular WOHZ concerts!


...2019-02-13 17:38:04
@Paul The Vienna concert only missed Best Friends. King Arthur, Pearl Harbor and the full Gladiator suite were just missing from the Austrian TV broadcast.

The Vienna concert also had a Sherlock Holmes performance which seems to be missing from this CD.


Mephariel2019-02-13 20:17:56
I think the CD will contain music from The World of Hans Zimmer not Hollywood in Vienna, even though they are almost the same show. There are some clear differences though.

And Hollywood in Vienna contains Pearl Harbor and King Arthur, it is just that they didn't broadcast those programs due to time constraint.

So, if I remember well, this should be released this Friday, but I don’t see any news or announcement about that. Is it normal or should we expect a delay regardless the release date ?


Johnny2019-02-04 18:54:43
Release is on March 15!

Well, just as long as der Balfmeister has no say in this. Not that it's going to be bad, but that it will just sound average, this is the Balfe method. Nothing to challenge nothing to gain. Total vapid everyone-is-okay nonsense, that is our Balfe, no creativity.

Well color me excited! Hope they make a film out of one of the shows like they did with the Prague one.

Awesome!!

Great News. I thought we will have to wait until end of 2019 at the earliest.


Evenstar2018-10-17 20:12:41
Especially can't wait for the Mission Impossible 2 mix.


snsguy2018-12-10 18:41:08
Will there be a Blu-ray release for this as well. I had heard that the Hollywood in Vienna award show that is essentially the same set would get a Blu-ray release.


Quinn2019-01-02 22:38:46
I certainly hope they will make a movie out of this fantastic show. The artists participating in this show are absolute talents too. Pedro Eustache, Amir John Haddad, name them! I really don't want to miss this show. There's many with us who don't have the luck or money to go to the show so I hope they will bring this out on DVD. The Hollywood in Vienna show in 2018 was wonderful as well with the same bunch of artists!


Quinn2019-01-02 22:39:32
Great! A dvd as well?
