‘The Lord Of The Rings’ Composer Howard Shore On The Score To Rule Them All

April 13, 2017 By Jamie Bologna and Meghna Chakrabarti

Listen here:

Howard Shore is a prolific, multiple Oscar-winning film composer. He’s written scores for more than 80 movies, everything from David Cronenberg’s “Crash,” and “Naked Lunch,” to Martin Scorsese’s “The Aviator” and “The Departed,” to Tom McCarthy’s “Spotlight.”

But there’s one score to rule them all: “The Lord of the Rings.” Shore wrote the music for Peter Jackson’s epic “Lord of the Rings” cycle. He also wrote the score for Jackson’s “The Hobbit” trilogy.

Listen here:

Shore is returning to Boston and Berklee College of Music, his alma mater, for a special performance of the “Lord of the Rings Symphony” — a special adaptation of his Oscar-winning film scores.
