The Polish Radio Orchestra and Academic Choir of Warsaw University of Technology with the conductor Maciej Sztor will perform a Film Music Concert dedicated to the work of Hans Zimmer.

During the concert, original orchestral suites will be presented, including from such blockbuster hits as: "Gladiator", "Inception", "Interstellar", "Batman Trilogy", "Fortress" and "Pirates of the Caribbean". Original songs from the films "Race", "King Arthur", " Dunkirk "and" The Little Prince ". A specially selected author's repertoire will allow you to appreciate the stylistic richness and talent of one of the greatest contemporary film music composers who inspires creators and audiences around the world.

Hans Zimmer has created soundtracks for over 150 images. He creates for all film genres, from animation to romantic comedies, action movies, thrillers to historical epics. In addition to prestigious awards such as the Oscar, Golden Globe or Grammy, he also received lifetime achievement awards: Lifetime Achievement Award, Frederick Loewe Award, Henry Mancini Award for Lifetime Achievement. His showcase is a characteristic style that is a combination of traditional music, modern instruments and electronics.

A breakthrough in Zimmer's career as a composer was the phenomenal musical setting for the iconic Disney animation "The Lion King". " This is the pearl of this concert, and rightly Zimmer got an Oscar for the music. It is also a song in which the orchestra has the opportunity to present themselves in the full palette of sound. This music is extremely poetic and honest, " notes conductor Maciej Szor.

After the success of "The Lion King", the orders boomed sharply, among others for the music for "Crimson Tide" or the thriller thriller "Fortress." Another significant moment in the composer's career was the soundtrack for "Gladiator", which was a great cinema hit, and the music from this film stormed the concert halls. The soundtrack album from "Gladiator" for many months remained on the list of world bestsellers. No less popular were the soundtracks to "Pirates of the Caribbean", "Pearl Harbor", the Da Vinci Code, "Inception" and the "Batman" trilogy.

The concert will be made more attractive by specially selected film fragments displayed on a cinema screen, and the light illumination will complete the visual perception of the event.
