I have no idea if you ever read this, but i just want to thank you for all the amazing music you have create through the years.
You are truly a gifted man.
I hope you along your life had time to teach young talents so they will be able to create such amazing music as you in the future.
I dont know you, but i think you have a love for music and to experiment with music and be the best you can be.
I enjoy your music for movies and impressed how you created the music for "interstellar" with old fashion church ovel/pipes. I think this show you are great and special when you think out of the box and play and experiement with music due to creative talent.
( ps.. i cant even play an instrument my self, but i love your music ).

I wish you the very best, and peace and quiet during old age and hope you will continue to create music as long as you live. Please teach other talented young people to step in your place.

Same here. Considering how well the film has done I am surprised that Warner Bros. hasn’t rushed out a Deluxe Edition by now.

I’m personally dying to hear the full Sicily fight sequence, which includes that badass Mera action motif.

I'd love to see Hans do another historical epic, for the record. I'm sure he'd say he's moved on from that sound, but personally, I miss it. That being said, Harry Gregson-Williams did good work here. Even if he then copied and pasted whole sections for Narnia. lol.

My only real gripes left with the score is the somewhat uninspired choral writing (and the fact that the choir sounds like samples in a lot of moments) and the reused percussion samples from every JXL action score ever since Mad Max.
  Alita - Battle Angel2019-02-15 11:32:04
Knight
After repeated listens of the score and seeing the film 3 times, I'd say now that the score is MUCH better than I initially gave it credit for.
Alita's theme (the 4 notes first heard at 1:53 in A Discovery) is used many times throughout the score in many instrumental varieties and variations, and used to great effect in emotional scenes
(I Don't Even Know My Own Name, What's Your Dream?, In Time You'll Remember, With Me, I'd Give You My Heart, What Did You Do), In the Clouds especially)
And do yourself a favor and get I See Church from somewhere, it's the 2nd best action track of the score after Motorball.
--------------------
In short, I would now give it a 4.5 / 5 from my previous 3 / 5

Hybrid, what's the story with Finale vs. Safe Now? On this page Finale is listed as Jackman and Zimmer. On the OST page, it's Jackman, Zimmer, & Jasha Klebe. The two versions are different too. Finale has a longer intro and a big outro that makes the Time thing even more obvious. So are they two different tracks with different credits, or is Safe Now just Finale clipped short?
  Pirates Of The Caribbean - Dead Men Tell No Tales (Complete Score)2019-02-15 02:43:15

Oh man, that's a tough question...I haven't listened to Curse of the Black Pearl in a while.... He's credited on almost every track for themes used... "Fog Bound" is the big Klaus Badelt cue from that movie (the real, 5-minute one in the movie is pretty much all Klaus I believe).

But Hans appears almost everywhere in POTC 1. Sometimes it's arrangements of his themes by the other guys, sometimes it's parts of the tunes that he wrote put directly in like he wrote them... The following scenes are pretty much directly Hans, if I remember right (this is the list I'm referencing — but as you can see, Zimmer's name is almost everywhere hans-zimmer . com/index.php?rub=disco&id=1128):

3. Captain Jack Sparrow (Hans wrote the big theme here, as well as the Jack Sparrow stuff at the end)
8. Breaking the Chains (more Jack Sparrow theme...)
17. Boarding the Dauntless (Jack Sparrow theme...)
24. Moonlight Serenade (Zimmer said he wrote this scene like Cinderella walking into a Metallica concert)

Aaaaand a lot of the final fighting music is lifted directly out of the suite Zimmer wrote, so it's 90% him. But once again, his themes as arranged by other people appear everywhere. Hybrid can answer way more about all this than I can.

  Pirates Of The Caribbean - Dead Men Tell No Tales (Complete Score)2019-02-14 19:49:21

Hans was composing The Last Samurai while the first POTC was being made. He had promised Tom Cruise and Edward Zwick (might have even signed a contract) that he would only work on The Last Samurai and no other movies at that time. So while Hans agreed to write the POTC themes for Gore Verbinski, he wasn't allowed to be credited due to his obligations to the Last Samurai. So he wrote a few themes and then handed the score off to Klaus Badelt, who got the "name" credit on the score. But the whole score is really Klaus, Geoff Zanelli, Nick Glennie Smith, Ramin Djawadi, and a few others doing arrangements of the theme that Hans wrote (and Hans writing for a couple scenes incognito, like when Elizabeth first sees the skeleton pirates). Then Klaus did do the dark "Fog Bound/Underwater March" tune, as mentioned.

Can’t insult me! I am genuinely curious. What’s this about The Last Samurai???
  Pirates Of The Caribbean - Dead Men Tell No Tales (Complete Score)2019-02-14 18:23:46
Mike
I'm not saying this to insult David, but it's funny to me that even now, 16 years later, after so many clarifications from HZ and others, people still get confused because of the way POTC 1 got credited. All because Hans had to work on The Last Samurai (which is one of my favorite scores of his, so I guess it was worth the confusion).

My definition of a Complete score is somewhat different. My goal is to find and mix everything you hear in the movie. Some things you find, others you don't. That's always an adventure in itself.

The source cues are not hard to find, sometimes it can be tricky to find the right performance/conductor.

In the case of TTRL, it's mostly the Beam cues that are difficult to find. Francesco Lupica wrote several pieces of Beam cues specifically for the movie, 5 of them which were used. There's also the 'Concerto for Beam' written by Powell, and there's the 'Sit back & Relax' album that was used. So to me, that's a pretty substantial (and important!) amount of music that made it into the cut, which hardly anyone ever talks about.

Anyway, maybe a future project will tackle most of these issues.

Unless they're composed by Zimmer or someone else from RCP, I wouldn't expect source cues to appear here. And there's like two tracks with Beam in the title listed, so what else would have that name?

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.”

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.

@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.

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!
