This year’s 10th edition of Hollywood in Vienna will be dedicated to “The World of Hans Zimmer”. Academy Award winner and film-composing legend Hans Zimmer is often described as the "rock star of film music” and has been regarded as one of the most innovative symphonists of the dream factory for more than 20 years.
On the occasion of the presentation of the 10th Max Steiner Film Music Achievement Award to this exceptional artist by the City of Vienna, his orchestral film compositions - partly newly arranged by him - will be heard for the first time in a classical concert hall. The ORF Radio Symphony Orchestra Vienna and special guests will perform the biggest hits from extraordinary films, ranging from thrillers like “The Da Vinci Code”, science fiction (“Inception”), sandal and pirate movies from “Gladiator” to “Pirates of the Carribean”, epic stories about “King Arthur”, animations à la “Kung Fu Panda”, romantic comedies (“The Holiday”) or war movies (“Pearl Harbour”).
The Max Steiner Film Music Achievement Award commemorates the Viennese film music pioneer Max Steiner, who went to Hollywood in the 1920s and is regarded as the “inventor” of film score music. Previous winners were among others John Barry, James Horner, Randy Newman and Danny Elfman.
