Composer Hans Zimmer has crafted one helluva discography and it is faithfully and beautifully presented in his concert Hans Zimmer: Live In Prague, streaming now on Netflix.
Of course, he doesn’t play every piece he’s ever written but he does hit the highlights and he presents them in a fresh and thrilling way.
I got goosebumps many times while watching this one, as each familiar melody began and then built in musical layers into a crescendo of sound.
Inception. Gladiator. The Lion King. Crimson Tide. Interstellar. Pirates of the Caribbean. Special attention is paid to Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy.
So many timeless scores and nearly each one is prefaced with an anecdote from Zimmer himself before he begins to jam with his musicians.
I was also very impressed by Zimmer’s ability to play multiple musical instruments. He looks like a rock star, though aged, on stage.
Lastly, these two heavenly creatures are front and center for the entire show, Crom be praised!
Both are dressed like extras from a nightclub scene in The Matrix, and, well…
If you’re a fan of Zimmer’s work, you will absolutely love this presentation, and as a fan, I give it my highest recommendation.
Thanks for reading. Adiós amigos y amiguitas!
