He has composed music for more than 50 films, including “Aviator,” “Silence of the Lambs,” “Seven” and “Philadelphia.” But perhaps American composer Howard Shore’s most recognized achievement is creating the music for Peter Jackson’s “Lord of the Rings” trilogy. For these films he has won three Academy Awards, two Golden Globes and five Grammy Awards. In 2003, Shore compressed the music from the trilogy into a two-hour symphony titled “The Lord of the Rings Symphony.” The six-movement work premiered in November 2003 in Wellington, New Zealand, and has since been performed more than 40 times.
