Hans Zimmer is a German film music composer who gained popularity after the release of the cult film Rain Man. “When composing the music for Rain Man, I kept thinking: don’t try to drown out the characters, don’t push yourself into the foreground. The main character Raymond doesn’t really understand where he is. He sees the world differently than we do… What about creating music for a world that only exists in his head?” Hans Zimmer recalls.
This work marked a real breakthrough in his career – Zimmer was nominated for an Oscar. The best directors in Hollywood lined up to work with him. And Hans gave himself completely to the work. He often composed music for two or three films at the same time. The Disney studio was so impressed by his music that they approached him to compose the soundtrack for the animated film The Lion King.
The soundtrack of the film brought the composer three very prestigious awards – an Oscar, a Golden Globe and a Grammy. And Zimmer went on to win many awards later on, becoming truly the best of the best in Hollywood. Rarely is an Oscars ceremony without a Hans Zimmer nomination.
The previous successes of the LORDS OF THE SOUND Orchestra concerts combined with Hans Zimmer’s best compositions, the vivid visual effects, the expressive vocal parts of the soloists and chorus, the unbridled positivity and unbridled energy of the entire team will draw you into the unforgettable feelings of a warm summer evening, into the atmosphere of a beautiful fairy tale filled with the splendour of the symphonic sound of your favourite songs mixed with the sound of a rock band!
The length of the concert is 2 hours and 20 minutes including the intermission.
