Lord of the Rings – Fellowship of the Ring – PERFORMED LIVE TO THE FILM

February 12, 2008 at 10:58 am by xoanon  - 

Composer Howard Shore brought J.R.R. Tolkien’s literary imagination to vivid life with his Academy®- and Grammy® Award-winning score to Peter Jackson’s film adaptation of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. Shore crafted a fully-developed musical epic that related the classic tale with moving and intricately related themes for each of Middle-earth’s cultures and charted the One Ring’s journey with an exhilarating flourish.

Upon its 2001 arrival, Shore’s score, composed for large symphony orchestra, adult and boys choruses and instrumental and vocal soloists, was proclaimed an instant classic. Now the massive composition makes an unprecedented move to the concert hall. On March 26 and 27, the Munich Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Ludwig Wicki, and the voices of the Universitätschor München will present Shore’s entire 3-hour score to The Fellowship of the Ring live to the projected film.

“This is the first time that the complete score to The Fellowship of the Ring will be performed Live to Projection in Germany. I have long admired the Munich Symphony Orchestra and I am very happy that they will perform the piece with conductor Ludwig Wicki. My first score for The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, The Fellowship of the Ring, was the beginning of my journey into the world of Tolkien and I will always hold a special fondness for the music and the experience.”

Howard Shore

The music of The Lord of the Rings is counted among film music’s most complex and comprehensive works. Howard Shore’s score interconnects dozens of recurring themes to create a world as rich and thoroughly realized as the story that inspired it. This unique performance sets the score to the film, but allows the music to bear the narrative weight, creating a wholly new and dramatic live concert experience.
