It won't be the same without the William Tell Overture which ended the TV show every time. I always loved when I was a child.

Now I do not expect them to use this. Would be a nice touch


Hear the Finale sample......

I mentioned that the last really engaging effort by Zimmer for me was Sherlock Holmes, and lo and behold one of the samples from The Lone Ranger uses the same instrumentation. My all time favorite Zimmer effort is King Arthur, and I heard shades of that in one of the tracks. "Ride" if I remember correctly. I like Zimmer some (just not most) of the time. The samples sound like I may enjoy The Lone Ranger. For me the movie trailer says "rent it on Blu Ray". I will be curious to hear word of mouth what people who go see it think. John Barry's LEGEND OF THE LONE RANGER on CD please !

For me, his last REALLY engaging effort was for RANGO. His love for Morricone really came out in that and it was TONS of fun (the movie as well -- loved it!) So I'm looking forward to this collaboration, also a western with the same director/composer collaboration. I'm expecting more Morricone homage, though probably a *little* less quirky.

Some people might find this exchange from his recent reddit conversation interesting:

"tomsayer89:
Dear Hans,
First time on Reddit after a friend told me about it and couldn't have picked a better time to join. I'm a film composer in the UK and a big fan of a lot of your soundtracks. I actually wrote my Master's dissertation on the use of music in Christopher Nolan's films back in 2012, including at the time Inception, Dark Knight, The Prestige and Batman Begins. I am currently working on a score for a parody western film for my final project and am finding it difficult to avoid cliched writing whilst still responding in an appropriate way to suit the film. With the Lone Ranger, how did you respond to writing a western in a contemporary style whilst still keeping some of the key elements associated with the genre, or were you asked to write something new and inventive?

All the best and thank you for your time.

realhanszimmer:
Rango was the parody of the western, which we did before we did the serious one, which is The Lone Ranger - so in a funny way, we got our parody out of the way first. But ultimately, Lone Ranger gave me the opportunity to go and write a wonderful, old-fashioned western score. I'd love to see your dissertation, because I always find that I can't be objective about my music and I'm always interested to see what other people read into it. And just so you know, there is a plan when I start writing - there is structure, and there is some intellectual framework."

This actually has me pretty excited now, even though I could sometimes be called a "hater" in regards to Zimmer (and especially what he's done to film music as a whole with MV/Remote Control). I wonder how much of a "wonderful, old-fashioned western score" he can write, but the trailers and such for the film make it seem like it'll be full of as much comedy as Rango was.

I'm definitely holding out for the Intrada version. Having All Access to Google Play Music certainly has its benefits.

Curious if any of you know if the William Tell Overture is used in the score at all?

Peter, just listen to the "Finale" sample on any of the links I provided.

Been listening to this on Spotify today. I'm liking a lot of tracks. IMHO this score is so much better than Man of Steel. The quieter, more reflective moments on this are great and the orchestra doesn't sound so synthesized. I think this is going to have some replay value. Wish we didn't have to wait another 3 weeks to get the Intrada version...

Hmmm. I'm itching to pick this up, but I'd like to know if its the same as the Intrada version so I don't have to double-dip.

Now WHY couldn't Zimmer use a THEME and an ORCHESTRA on Man Of Steel???? Sigh

And it was a theme that even general audiences were humming afterwards, when we were all filing out of the theater.

...and you can clearly see (and hear) the orchestra in the above making of videos.

Pad is not a theme. Chord changes are not a theme. The William Tell Overture - there is the definition of a theme. Always best to learn the difference smile
