Product Description

Amazon.ca

In October 2000, film composer Hans Zimmer gave a concert as part of the Flanders Film Festival. The Wings of A Film--music being that which makes celluloid take flight--combines orchestra, rock instrumentalists and Zimmer himself on keyboards, preserving almost 72 minutes from the event in Ghent's Kuipken Concert Hall. Lisa Gerrard, whose vocals contributed significantly to the atmosphere of Gladiator, is reunited with Zimmer for a subdued version of that film's end title music. "Thunderbird" from Thelma and Louise allows the composer to fulfil his Pink Floyd fantasies, while the formal tuned percussion describing True Romance gives no clue to the film's ultra-violent nature. Rain Man offers a soft-rock lyricism which prefigures the warmth of "Nyah and Ethan" from Mission: Impossible II, "Journey to the Line" being an almost 10-minute adventure in slow-burning atmospherics from The Thin Red Line. With a track from The Power of One and two from The Lion King, virtually every style in Zimmer's repertoire (except for pulsating action music) is covered. The sound is good if sometimes a little cavernous and by necessity lacks Zimmer's usual hi-tec studio polish. --Gary S Dalkin

3.0 out of 5 stars Not All You Could Hope For Feb. 28 2004
Format:Audio CD
If you're looking for a collection of Zimmer's work all in one place this is it. But that's all. These are not the best versions of his work you'll find and if you've grown to love some of his music from movie soundtrack CDs, you'll be disappointed. This is LIVE meaning each piece has several seconds of applause at the end. The arrangements are for orchestra so some of the studio techniques which give the music a kick are missing.
For some people, once they're used to one version of a song, variations will never do. If that's you don't waste time on this CD. I'm not such a person yet these live recordings left me cold.
The music for Rainman is a good case in point. I like that the arrangement, unlike the soundtrack CD, is a full 3 minutes of the piece (the soundtrack was split into two shorter pieces) but the music simply doesn't transport me the way the original did. There's less emotion.
If you're into Hans then this is still a must have but is not as satisfying as, say, a compilation of the original works.

What more can you want.
A compilation CD of Zimmer from his live concert. The music is brilliant and powerful with the emotion that comes from a live performance.
Unfortuanatley I cannot give this album five stars because the CD misses a number of tracks from the concert which would have made the CD so much better.
That said what is one the CD is great. A selection of some of Zimmer's best work. Nothing new. But it's great hearing the tracks live a good way of getting a sample of Zimmer's work. I didn't have the separate soundtracks for all the cues so for me the CD is excellent and refreshing.
Journey to the Line and Mother Africa are two of the most powerful tracks and my favourites but none of it is bad. Definatley recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bliss Sept. 24 2001
Format:Audio CD
I had been looking for the instrumental music from Thelma and Louise since I saw the film in 1991. Ten years later, on a whim, I found The Wings of a Film and as soon as track four began playing, tears streamed down my face for I had found it. Hans Zimmer is a musical and emotional genius and this is a must have for music lovers. When I saw the preview for Pear Harbor, it brought me to tears only because of the compelling score. I bought the soundtrack, and although it was good, it was not the emotion invoking music of the preview. However in The Wings of a Film, track five is from the Thin Red Line and it too was the song I had sought. I am thrilled with this purchase and suggest it to all with a soul for music.
