HANS ZIMMER JOINS THE VARESE SARABANDE 35TH ANNIVERSARY GALA!
Varese Sarabande announcement :
"Another of our oldest friends joins the big party! We are thrilled to announce that Hans Zimmer will perform at the Varese Sarabande 35th Anniversary All-Star Concert Gala with the Golden State Pops Orchestra. We've been working with Hans since Driving Miss Daisy and have been honored to be part of so many of our favorite Zimmer scores from Green Card and Pacific Heights to Drop Zone and Tears of the Sun. From The Holiday and Frost/Nixon to Kung Fu Panda 2! This is a film music concert for the history books! One night only! Don't miss Hans Zimmer performing as part of Varese Sarabande's historic 35th Anniversary Gala with the GSPO May 11, 2013 ! What a night this is going to be!"
"Today felt like a good day to share an edit I made of some of the music I'd written for Tony Scott films that I had hoped to have played at his Memorial Celebration held in LA earlier this year.
Although I did indeed have the honor of speaking at that event, there was no chance for this to be heard. So rather than have it fade away on the cutting room floor, here it is.
I hope it evokes dome decent memories from his wonderfully diverse films for one or two of you, and it makes you smile just a bit.
