9780739071571: The Music of The Lord of the Rings Films: A Comprehensive Account of Howard Shore's Scores (Book and Rarities CD)

Howard Shore's Academy Award-winning score for The Lord of the Rings has been hailed as some of 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 peoples. 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. Also included are a foreword by Howard Shore, an introduction by Fran Walsh, and sketches by John Howe and Alan Lee.

About the Author:

Doug Adams is a Chicago-based author and musicologist. In 2001, Adams was invited by Howard Shore to observe and document his work on Peter Jackson's motion picture trilogy of The Lord of the Rings. This book is the culmination of almost a decade of writing and research, during which time Adams attended recording sessions, examined the original scores, and was given total access to the composer's archives.

Review:

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. --Ain't It Cool News

An impressive literary debut that will thrill both Rings and soundtrack fans... as meticulous as it is entertaining. --Film Music Magazine
