Howard Shore’s, Academy Award–winning score for the first film in director Sir Peter Jackson’s three-picture adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s fantasy classic will be performed in Eldborg August 25 and 26. Symphony orchestra a large chorus, and a cast of soloists perform it live to the epic motion picture. Around 230 people will participate in the production.
Composer Howard Shore brings J.R.R. Tolkien’s literary imagination to vivid life with his Academy- and Grammy Award-winning score to The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. Shore’s music expresses Peter Jackson’s film as an immense symphonic work—a uniquely developed vision drawn from centuries of stylistic tendencies.
The music of The Lord of the Rings is counted among film music’s most complex and comprehensive works. This unique performance sets the score to the film, but allows the music to bear the narrative weight, creating a wholly new and dramatic live concert experience.
