Overview

The Wings of A Film: The Music of Hans Zimmer

"Hans understands the impact of music on moving images as well as any composer past or present" -- mighty big words coming from noted director Barry Levinson (Diner, Good Morning Vietnam), who worked with the innovative composer on Rain Man. Recorded live at the Flanders International Film Festival 2000 -- with Zimmer's Gladiator collaborator Lisa Gerrard among the featured soloists -- The Wings of a Film: The Music of Hans Zimmer features a dozen tantalizing selections spanning Zimmer's career. Removed from the context of the Oscar-winning film, the opening passages from Gladiator sound even grander, emphasizing their larger-than-life sonics. In marked contrast, "Driving," from Driving Miss Daisy, blends a poignantly nostalgic intimacy with down-home, thumping piano. Other standout selections include the Spanish guitar-accented "Nyah and Ethan" from Mission Impossible 2 (Score), the bluegrass guitar-laced "Thunderbird" from Thelma & Louise, and the African rhythms of "Busa" and "Lea Halalela" from the Oscar-winning The Lion King. Maestro Zimmer also shines as a conductor; leading an orchestra through his work, he eloquently affirms the power of his music both in its own terms and as an enhancement to film.
