At 1:14 there's a theme that sound sort of similar to William's love theme from Far and Away. The theme and the piece in general are different enough that I don't think it comes close to being a rip-off, but I also wouldn't be surprised if the composer was subconsciously channeling some JW. It's a nice piece of music, btw.

Sounds like a regular irish-tingled theme. It's not that JW invented those in 1992.
You wouldn't see a subtle plan if it painted itself purple and danced naked on top of a harpsichord, singing "Subtle Plans Are Here Again."

It's not the Irish-tinge that sounds similar, it's the structure. The rhythm and shape of the line starts off almost exactly the same.

I wonder if Williams listened to The Hobbit...

I've met this composer before and he conducted a piece we played of his a long time ago. I like his music very much, and I definitely hear the similarities you're talking about. Who knows? John Williams is everywhere, whether you know it or not ;)

Is there any truth to the rumours that you were physically ejected from Wellington Town Hall and had your baton torn from your grasp by Sir Conrad of Pope when you refused to do reprise the Revelation of the Ringwraiths for Thorin vs Azog II in BOTFA?

No truth to it. Hahah!
