The World of Hans Zimmer
THE WORLD OF HANS ZIMMER – A Symphonic Celebration
Conducted by Gavin Greenaway
After completing the Musical Stage in March 2019 and when the Accorhotels Arena on November 24, 2019 is already complete, “The World of Hans Zimmer – A Symphonic Celebration” announces four exceptional concerts in France: the 4/11 in Nantes, the 5/11 in Bordeaux, 6/11 in Lyon and 7/11 in Toulouse!
This show presents a selection of the composer’s greatest works adapted for a symphony orchestra. Hans Zimmer himself spent several months transforming his soundtracks into classical concert pieces. Although he does not perform in person on this tour, he remains the musical director.
With Oscar, Grammy and Golden Globes, Hans Zimmer is arguably one of the most famous soundtrack composers of our time. His influence and his powerful creations shaped the current cinema like no other. His compositions accompany an almost endless list of blockbusters. The Lion King, Pirate of the Caribbean, The Da Vinci Code, The Dark Knight, Twelve Years A Slave or Man Of Steel are some of the most famous films he has worked on. In January 2018, Hans Zimmer received his 11th Oscar nomination with his breathtaking soundtrack for Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk.
It is besides Gavin Greenaway who directs the orchestra. A faithful collaborator of the composer for more than 25 years, he has directed many soundtracks created by Hans Zimmer such as The Prince of Egypt, Gladiator, Pearl Harbor, Inception and Interstellar. The English conductor has been involved in the writing, composition, production and orchestration of more than 90 film soundtracks, along with James Newton Howard, John Powell and many others.
