The World of Hans Zimmer – A Symphonic Celebration

24 September @ 19:30 - 22:00

Orchestra conducted by Gavin Greenaway

Program Info:
After a triumphant tour in 2021 which drew more than 41,000 spectators, “The World of Hans Zimmer – A Symphonic Celebration” will be back in Switzerland in 2022!

Collecting Oscars, Grammys and Golden Globes, Hans Zimmer is arguably one of the most famous soundtrack composers of our time. His influence and powerful creations have shaped today’s cinema like no other. His compositions accompany an almost endless list of blockbusters. The Lion King, Pirate of the Caribbean, The Da Vinci Code, The Dark Knight, Twelve Years A Slave and Man Of Steel are among the most famous films on which he has worked. In January 2018, Hans Zimmer received his 11th Oscar nomination with his breathtaking soundtrack for Dunkirk, by Christopher Nolan.

Hans Zimmer himself spent several months transforming his soundtracks into classical concert pieces. Although he does not perform in person on this tour, he remains the musical director.

Gavin Greenaway conducts the orchestra. Faithful collaborator of the composer for more than 25 years, he has directed many soundtracks created by Hans Zimmer such as The Prince of Egypt, Gladiator, Pearl Harbor, Inception and Interstellar. The English conductor has been involved in the writing, composition, production and orchestration of over 90 film soundtracks, along with James Newton Howard, John Powell and many others.
