The World of Hans Zimmer

Oscar, Golden Globe and Grammy winner Hans Zimmer is one of the true greats of Hollywood film music. He has composed for all genres of film: thriller (The Da Vinci Code), Science Fiction (Inception, most recently in 2017 Blade Runner 2049 together with Benjamin Wallfisch), Sword-and-sandal and pirate films (Gladiator, Pirates of the Caribbean), a historical epic about King Arthur, Animation (Kung Fu Panda, The Lion King), Romance to tragicomedy (The Holiday, As Good as It Gets, Driving Miss Daisy), Drama (Rain Man) and War film (Pearl Harbor).

Max Steiner Award for Hans Zimmer

While some describe him as "the rock star of film music", others believe he has been the dream factory's most innovative symphonist for the last 20 years or more. Zimmer was the first to incorporate the world of electronic music into traditional orchestral arrangements. Born in Germany, he now lives in Los Angeles. He will be presented with the 10th Max Steiner Film Music Achievement Award live at the Hollywood in Vienna gala on October 19, 2018.

His orchestral film compositions – some of them newly arranged by Zimmer himself – can be heard on this evening performed for the first time in a classical concert hall. The program consists of highlights of the production The World of Hans Zimmer - A Symphonic Celebration, which has been touring Europe since April 2018.

TV broadcast: The concert will be recorded for TV and radio, and broadcast internationally. This will enable hundreds of thousands of music fans around the world to also see the gala.
