Shore on the Score: The Music of The Lord of the Rings

Denethor: Can you sing, master hobbit?
Pippin: Well... yes. At least well enough for my own people. But we have no songs for great halls and ...evil times.

 
The Lord of the Rings Academy Award-winning composer Howard Shore had no trouble conjuring up music for great halls, evil times, or any of the scenes depicted in Peter Jackson’s epic adaptations of J.R.R. Tolkien’s three novels about the great war for the “one ring to rule them all.” In anticipation of his much ballyhooed October 9 and 10 live performances of the full score of The Fellowship of the Ring as the film is screened at Radio City Music Hall, Shore visits the Paley Center to share his insights into his craft, and the many creative challenges posed by scoring The Lord of the Rings films.

This event is in conjunction with The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring: Howard Shore's Score Performed by 300 Musicians Live to Film, Friday and Saturday, October 9 and 10, 7:30 pm, Radio City Music Hall.

In Association with

Doug Adams, Author, The Music of The Lord of the Rings Films
Billy Boyd, "Peregrin 'Pippin' Took"
Howard Shore, Composer/Conductor, The Lord of the Rings films
Moderator: MTV's Kurt Loder
