Reviews

De naam Howard Shore zal niet bij iedereen een associatie opwekken, maar iets van zijn muziek zal iedereen wel herkennen. Shore (1946) schreef de soundtracks bij talloze films waaronder The departed - The silence of the lambs - Mrs. Doubtfire - The Client en niet in de laatste plaats The Lord of the Rings. In dit album de belangrijkst thema's uit deze en nog een aantal andere films in een arrangement voor piano. Overigens zal de muziek voor de toekomstige verfilming van The hobbit ook van de hand van Shore zijn. Graad 3. 89 blz. Alfred 33893.

Howard Leslie Shore (born October 18, 1946) is a Canadian composer and conductor noted for his film scores. He has composed the scores for over 80 films, most notably the scores for The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit film trilogies. He won three Academy Awards for his work on The Lord of the Rings, with one being for the song "Into the West", an award he shared with Eurythmics lead vocalist Annie Lennox and writer/producer Fran Walsh, who wrote the lyrics. He is also a consistent collaborator with director David Cronenberg, having scored all but one of his films since 1979.
