No other composer has influenced the film world in the past two decades as much as the Oscar-, Globe- and Emmy-winning composer Hans Zimmer with his staggering compositions for films such as “James Bond”, “The Lion King”, “Pirates of the Caribbean”, “Gladiator”, “The Dark Knight”, “Man of Steel”, “Inception”, and “Interstellar”.

German-born Hans Zimmer became famous with "Rain Main" and has since helped numerous Hollywood mega-hits to success and dramatic-emotional impact, including "Mission Impossible II", "Gladiator", "Pirates of the Caribbean" or even "Interstellar" and "Batman". Hans Zimmer received his eleventh Oscar nomination in 2018 for the film score for Christopher Nolan's "Dunkirk".

The audience will learn about interesting background stories, such as how Hans Zimmer smuggled a message against apartheid in a song text for “The Lion King” in the native language and told the Disney corporation that it was about butterflies. Hans Zimmer named Ennio Morricone as his idol and role-model, whose repertoire will be featured with excerpts from “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” and “Once Upon a Time in the West”. Zimmer followed Morricone’s example of composing the film music before – instead of after – filming and shaped the entire work. For example, he changed the beginning of Ridley Scott’s “Gladiator”, subsequently the world-famous director moved into the studio of Hans Zimmer. Jewish-born Zimmer is an artist with social conscience, he composed a song for the victims of the Batman cinema shooting in Aurora as well as music to oppose climate change – all of which will be heard in the program.

"The Music of Hans Zimmer & Others - A Celebration of Filmmusic" is an unforgettable audiovisual concert event.
