The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
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.
Howard Shore's music for The Lord of the Rings is counted among film music’s most complex and comprehensive works. Tonight's 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.
The Royal Concertgebouw's Robeco SummerNights presents two months of wonderful concerts, from classical to jazz and from cabaret to film scores.
