Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard’s ingenious dark soundworld for Director Christopher Nolan’s Batman Trilogy.
Masterfully performed by the London Music Works and City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra this unique compilation brings together the best score cues from Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises.
According to AllMusic.com, for Batman Begins, the Oscar-winning composers have “crafted an atmosphere that relies less on the dynamics of Danny Elfman and more on the rain-soaked soundscapes of Brian Eno and Blade Runner-era Vangelis.”
In the music for The Dark Knight, Zimmer and Newton Howard individual styles are distinct - Zimmer merges percussion and electronics whilst Newton Howard combines lush orchestral passages with solo piano sections.
The soundtrack for The Dark Knight Rises, the final film of the trilogy, was written by Zimmer alone and merges operatic, militaristic and mystical to provide a powerful climax to the trilogy.
Hans Zimmer’s illustrious career encompasses some of the biggest films of the last two decades including The Lion King, Gladiator, Pirates Of The Caribbean, The Da Vinci Code, Inception and Sherlock
James Newton Howard’s scores include Pretty Woman, The Prince Of Tides, The Sixth Sense and The Hunger Games.
