Lee Ann writes: I’m listening to Howard Shore being interviewed on NPR’s Performance on NPR. He and interviewer Fred Child are discussing various themes in Return of the King, the various instruments and singers Shore used (he says singing in Elvish helped Renee Fleming with another recording she was making), and the Lord of the Rings Symphony. An extended version of the interview is available for listening at Performance Today’s website, along with links to other NPR interviews with Mr. Shore. [More]
