Event description

Zimmer vs. Williams will see the London Concert Orchestra performing some of the most famous scores from two of the greatest film composers of all time at venues around the UK. John Williams' career has spanned over six decades, and the 85 year-old New Yorker has written scores for more than 100 films and won 23 Grammy Awards, seven BAFTAs, five Academy Awards and four Golden Globe Awards. His 50 Oscar nominations make him the second most-nominated individual after Walt Disney. Some of his most recognisable scores come from films as diverse as Jaws, Superman, Schindler's List and Home Alone, as well as themes for the 1984 Olympics, the NFL and NBC news.

Hans Zimmer might be a quarter of a century younger than Williams, but is no less influential. The German composer shot to fame with the score for The Lion King in 1995, for which he won an Oscar for Best Original Score, and he has since written scores for the Pirates of the Caribbean series and Gladiator. In much the same way as John Williams is a longtime collaborator with Stephen Spielberg, Zimmer has worked extensively with Christopher Nolan, scoring his Dark Knight trilogy, Inception, Interstellar and most recently, Dunkirk. He has received four Grammy Awards, three Classical BRIT Awards, two Golden Globes and an Academy Award.
