Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
Howard Shore's Academy Award-winning score for The Lord of the Rings has been hailed as among the greatest film music ever written. Sweeping in scope, it is an interpretation of J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth as music --- an operatic tapestry of cultures, histories, languages, and principles. The Music of the Lord of the Rings Films takes the reader on an unprecedented journey into the heart of this history-making opus with extensive music examples, original manuscript scores, a rarities CD, and fascinating glimpses into the creative process from the composer himself. Includes Exclusive Rarities CD of unreleased LOTR music Color stills from the films. Like the Lord of the Rings story itself, this book is a journey. Adams makes us hear the music, feel the tension or hope or despair through impassioned narrative and a rich musical vocabulary. -Blogcritics ...Could easily be one of the most significant and important books ever written on the analysis of a film score.... a masterwork. -Aint It Cool News An impressive literary debut that will thrill both Rings and soundtrack fans... as meticulous as it is entertaining. -FIlm Music Magazine Compellingly readable... nothing short of masterful. -DauntlessMedia A monumental feat, a superb resource, and above all, a very enjoyable read. -TrackSounds
