Can’t Wait For “The Hobbit” Soundtrack?

January 9, 2012 at 10:27 am by Earl  - 

The Hobbit trailer hit last month (as most of you know!), and besides the stunning visuals and memorable character introductions, the two and a half minute video also featured some glorious bits of music – some familiar, some new.

If, like us, you too can’t wait until the official soundtrack for The Hobbit releases, here’s something to tide you over.

Dan from Germany alerted us to a YouTube video that he created. He writes:

It’s a little orchestral suite using the new musical themes from Howard Shore that were introduced in the trailer for the hobbit.

    The musical themes are just stunning, even though some of it is familiar but it really sets the mood for the visual images and I think it works brilliantly.

    I really hope that the new music will have something new for us, and I mean more than just a new theme melody. I want the style to change a bit. Maybe a bit more dwarvish (like the trailer song which would hit the nail on the head) but just as beautiful and epic.

    More variety than LOTR would be good.

    I cant wait for this movie or the soundtrack! my fiance love LOTR and the hobbit so he will be so happy when i get him the music for it 🙂

  17. Keith says:

    Howard Shore is a genius, and may be the greatest composer of all time. The music is a large part of the emotional experience of LOTR. I would easily put him against Mozart, Beethoven, and Holst. Seriously, look at the arrangement, breadth, and emotional impact of these compositions.

    Additionally, he has captured dwarven/elven music from an author description of culture and lyrics on the page. Representation of a foreign culture is infinitely more challenging than, say, Holst’s emotional representation.

    I have purchased all of the LOTR albums, and cannot wait for the next one. Howard Shore does not disappoint.
