The World of Hans Zimmer – A Symphonic Celebration in Birmingham
Legendary composer Hans Zimmer has announced a spectacular new tour, ‘The World of Hans Zimmer’, which reaches Birmingham next Thursday 21st March.
Under the direction of Gavin Greenaway, Hans Zimmer’s soundtrack conductor — whom, he says, he trusts more than he trusts himself — a large symphony orchestra will deliver an intense and unforgettable concert experience in arenas around the country, including London’s iconic Wembley Arena.
In contrast to the renowned “Hans Zimmer Live” tour, where the sound focuses on Zimmer’s band and the electronic sounds of the music, “The World of Hans Zimmer — A Symphonic Celebration” will present the composer’s works arranged for a live symphony orchestra for the very first time. Zimmer spent months working on transforming his soundtracks into opulent concert suites, curating a stunning, genre-defying stage show but leaving the actual live performance to Greenaway.
The concerts themselves will see Zimmer’s hugely influential soundtracks presented it in a less elite world, offering fans young and old the chance to experience the legendary composer’s work in an exciting new way, in what promises to be a spectacular series of shows.
