    Hans Zimmer Appreciation Thread

    If I'm generally a fan of very romantic scores and want to get into Zimmer, what's a good score to listen to first? Romantic as in time period, not emotion.

    John Powell's SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY (2018)

    Is this from the Mr. Sunday Movies Scenes In 8-Bit video?

    John Powell's SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY (2018)

    Update on the Solo piano solo book; for the most part, it's great! They actually tried their best to transcribe the complexity of Powell's action into a piano solo part . . . which is why there isn't a whole bunch of action in this book. But the action they do have is great. Adventures of Han is a great transcription, better than the Samuel Fu one in many ways, I think. Same for Meet Han. They didn't transcribe all of Corellia Chase, but probably two or three minutes worth of it. Not sure why they even bothered with Train Heist; they only arranged the quiet part at the beginning and just ended it there without getting to the six further minutes of action music. Also unsure of why they even tried to arrange Chicken In The Pot for piano; there's no way to accurately transcribe it and have it sound remotely accurate. Lando's Closet is arranged well, although it skips the first ten or so seconds and includes needless triplet arpeggios in the second statement of the love theme. The Mine Mission arrangement is, by far, the highlight of the book. It's a complete transcription in all its fugal glory, and it sounds fantastic. I'm trying to learn that one first since it was already my favorite track from the soundtrack. From there we go to The Good Guy, which is also not a complete arrangement. It stops short of the grand statement of the Marauders theme. The last solo featured in the book is Savareen Standoff, which is fine, but not a whole lot happens. To sum up: Most of the arrangements are fantastic; they manage to capture all of the insanely complicated chords that Powell throws at us. All of the arrangements are very advanced, which I also love. However, some of the arrangements cut the best part of the track out and others are just uninteresting choices. I would've loved to get a Flying With Chewie, Break Out, or Testing Allegiances. Recommendation also: Samuel Fu did great transcriptions of L3 & Millenum Falcon and Reminiscence Therapy if you want to supplement the book with those. All in all, though, I'm very pleased with the book.
  5. Ha. I was just listening to The Rocketeer, and a motif that sounds just like the Death Star/Imperial fanfare just turned up at 1:21.

    What Is The Last Score You Listened To?

    I'm listening to The Rocketeer right now. What an amazing theme Horner wrote for it. Heroic, yet also old-fashioned at the same time. I love the time period and the intentional cheesiness of the movie. Main Title and Takeoff was just a joy to listen to.
  7. Ah, ok, I also think of it as Imperial Fanfare, but you're probably right.
  8. Nah, the Imperial fanfare only appears in A New Hope (and Rogue One). You can hear it almost every time that it cuts back to the Death Star in A New Hope. See 1:49 of "Burning Homestead or 6:18 of "Imperial Attack." In Rogue One, it shows up at 1:49 of "When Has Become Now."
