Leona Lewis's "Now We Are Free" is probably the best one. It provides a softer version of the theme.
Besides that, Vengerov's "Light" is my second favorite.
2 Cellos' "Mombasa" and Stirling's The Dark Knight are interesting to listen to.
I think that is about it.
Seriously, Leona Lewis' interpretation was the worst i have heard. I always thought she can sing as hell, but when i've heard "Now we are free" from her, my ears have bleeded. It was really bad, many notes were wrong and unenjoyable. She tried it so hard, that it sounded like an amateur singer. For me that song is the worst song in this "collection". A complete fair :(
I have to agree with Leona: Leona Lewis' "Now we are free" is like the rock band Queen after Freddie Mercury has died: It's so unique, not a single singer will be able to match it. The closest was the singer in the initial Hans Zimmer Revealed Concerts in London.
Hey, I don't know why it's not listed here, but on January 13 an album with songs of Hans Zimmer will be released, performed by his friends Tina Guo, Roger Sayer (Interstellar organist), Lang Lang, Lindsey Stirling, Leona Lewis and more. Here the track listing:
1. Main Theme (From "The Dark Knight Rises") - Lindsey Stirling 2. Themes (From "Pirates of the Caribbean") - The Piano Guys 3. Gladiator Rhapsody (From "Gladiator") - Lang Lang 4. Main Theme (From "Crimson Tide") - Till Brönner 5. Time (From "Inception") - Tina Guo 6. This Land (From "The Lion King") - Amy Dickson 7. Now We Are Free (From "Gladiator") - Leona Lewis 8. Flight (From "Man of Steel") - Lang Lang and Maxim Vengerov 9. Light (From "The Thin Red Line") - Maxim Vengerov 10. The Battle Scene (From "Gladiator") - Khatia Buniatishvili 11. Mombasa (From "Inception") - 2 Cellos 12. The Docking Scene (From "Interstellar") - Roger Sayer
Nope nope nope.
I'm interested in HZ's career, not what others make up of his music !
Whoa, if Roger Sayer is doing the Docking scene, might it be closer to the film version (full organ)?!
Come on! Even Tina Guo's solo album is listed here :P
Yeah, but the problem with your logic is that this is the official HZ website, not the "what does Hybrid Soldier feel interested in" website.
Are french people really this dumb?
Nope, I made it become official over the years, and one of my missions has always been to clean things up among the shitload of CDs using the name "Hans Zimmer" on them.
Ultimately, yes, it is what I am interested in... If I ever add that "Classics" CD there, it sure will never end up in Hans' discography !
Hybrid, do you know if HZ had anything to do with this release at all? It seems like such a bad idea, and I'm not really fond of the few tracks that have been released so far, it just doesn't sound as good as the originals.
I just wonder why was this album promoted in the concert programme I bought during the show then, if Hans really has nothing to do with it...
The Dark Knight Rises thing was hideous honestly. :
Just sounds like a cello poorly dubbed over the original.
This is really, really an unimportant release. Mombasa, played by 2Cellos, is the only one, which sounds kind of interesting, the rest is absolutely boring and doesn't add any value to Hans Zimmers work.
I like the new interpretations of Hans Zimmer's music. But they also could have been uploaded here like the fans arrangements.
whose idea was this release.
Some of the tracks are actually abysmal. I thought hans hated his name being slapped on shit exploitative releases like this.
Well, I for one like this release! I don't think it is exploitative; I rather enjoy the specific musical ideas and new orchestrations/instruments present in the tracks. It is far better than just another Prague re-recording of Hans' music.
The sticker on the album says: "The best of Hans Zimmer + selected by him* + new arranged + new recorded with top stars"
*Hans Zimmer made a song selection of this album and was involved in this project.
It's pretty cool that he'll play in front of such a broad audience. At the same time it's horribly painful to see his name written in such small letters while Beyonce takes half the page :-p Let's hope he won't have to play early in the afternoon, because this concert is at its most spectacular when it's completely dark. I can't imagine The Dark Knight played in daylight!
Dear Mr Zimmer, I am a huge fan and i am pleased to assist to your concert in France (Antic Theater of Vienne in June 2017). My question : Could you please satisfy my request and present the Rock Music during this concert ? Thank you so much and see you in June 2017
yes ..the Rock,Pearl Habor,King Arthur(bad movie,fantastic soundtrack) This songs i missed last year in Berlin..i hope soo
Would you please consider adding a concert on the east coast of the US? We live in Atlanta and I have a teenager who has been dying to go to one of your concerts. We would love to take the whole family but can't get out west with school schedules.
The promo announced that the tour will start on the West coast, then Australia/New Zealand, then Europe... then a full North American tour! Pretty sure he'll visit a city near you, don't worry :-)
Ds, where did you see this promo that says a full North American tour?
In the description given by most of the European ticket sellers.
Here for instance (in french): sportpaleis.be/fr/calendrier/2016-2017/hans-zimmer
It's great that Hans is back with live shows - can't wait for UK dates, maybe he'll come to Scotland. But what about blu-ray/dvd/audio from 2016 tour? Everyone has been asking about it, but no one is able to give a definitive answer..! Is REALLY gonna happen..? I'm starting to doubt...
Saw him last year and will see him againg next year. Next Step should be playing with him on Stage. Just give me an Instrument. I don`t care which one it is. That would be fucking great :D
Is it the same as the 2016 tour? or new/different music?
Hans ist der Beste! Nach der grandiosen Tour 2016 gleich neue Live-Termine für 2017! Danke!
i hope he changed some music.i was in Berlin and it was fantastic,but i missed some Music,like Pearl Habor or the Rock(nicki glenny smith was also in Berlin),Last Samurai,and also he can play the new BBC Planet earth score. Man of Steel,spiderman2 in my opinion can be removed :)
i hope too... spiderman 2 out please :)
last samurai,black hawk down,pearl harbor,sherlock holmes but not arranged.....
I love Spidey 2, but I agree that if one track should be removed, it's definitely that one. It's not an iconic score in HZ's career, it really seems out of place when you think about the set list and the amount of scores that didn't make it... But I still love it! :-)
Sam, auch in Frnakfurt? :)
It's the same tour, the posters are clear on this point.
Damage if it is the same list 2016... 2/3 new tracks would be cool :)
Are the only announcing UK dates today? One of the FB posts said "UK Fans...Hold tight" When do we get US dates?
Guys, while checking the Antwerp Sportpaleis site for the June 20th 2017 concert, the french speaking page mentions this :
"Les concerts live d’Hans Zimmer en 2017 commenceront sur la côte ouest des États-Unis et parcourront l’Australie et la Nouvelle-Zélande avant de venir en Europe, d’où Hans et ses musiciens repartiront aux États-Unis pour leur première grande tournée américaine."
Which can be translated by :
"Hans Zimmer 2017 live concerts will start on the West Coast of the US and will travel all around Australia and New-Zealand before heading back to Europe, from where Hans and his musicians will go back to the US for their first huge American tour.
Has anyone heard of this ?
Yes it is World Tour. Dates will be announced within the next few weeks.
Budapest, Hungary - 1th of June, just received the email today.
