Hear Howard Shore's An Unexpected Journey soundtrack on Classic-FM today! Can't Post

This Sunday, November 18th, Classic FM has the world exclusive first play of Howard Shore's soundtrack for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

The soundtrack to the Peter Jackson-directed film was recorded at London's Abbey Road studios by the London Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of composer.

This year Howard Shore's score for the Lord Of Rings trilogy topped the Classic FM Movie Chart, so there's certain to be much interest in the sound of the composer's new score. Tune in to the Classic FM Chart with Margherita Taylor from 5pm GMT to be part of this event.

Come on daniel... [In reply to] Can't Post

You watched all the tv-spots... hearing the music before the movie will enhance your experience when you see the actual movie...not the other way around, I promise! Smile

It's not about being spoiled, it's about the emotional connection I have to the music [In reply to] Can't Post

The first time I hear the Hobbiton theme is when I have Bag End in front of me. I wan to experience the music and the film together.

If that makes any sense?Wink

I understand your opinion, as I think the same [In reply to] Can't Post

I've just listened to the beginning of the soundtrack, and I must agree to what others have said, that there MUST be a prologue, as the music have this "heavy" orchestra with dwarven chanting like in Moria.

Already have an attachment [In reply to] Can't Post

I get what you're saying but don't we already have an attachment? Between reading the book, trailers, tv spots, etc its already there. I can only speak for myself in that listening to it now and again before the movie just deepens that.

Ok I'm tuning in now.. and no Shore as of yet.. just John Rutter (still very good ;) ) [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't want to spoil myself either, but I've already listened to bits and bobs.. not much, but a tincy bit.
I'm with Daniel on this to be honest.

But I really can't resist .. :s

Now they're playing Dark Knight Rises.

The site says the score will start just before 7:00 p.m. GMT [In reply to] Can't Post

I checked it out (am listening now, as a matter of fact), and the show is a top 30 countdown. The site says #1 for the week will play just before 7:00 p.m. That's in one hour (noon MST here in Colorado, 2:00 p.m. EST, etc.).

Enjoy! Smile

Was worth the wait, though! [In reply to] Can't Post

I guessed it would only one or two tracks at most, since the album is not released yet for a few weeks. With LotR, the week before the release date they made it "album of the week" and played a different track each day. Hopefully they'll do the same for AUJ...
