     Howard Shore hires external orchestrators for DOS instead of doing it himself  

According to an article from German site Herr-der-ringe-film.de, Howard Shore will not continue doing both composing and orchestrating / conducting the score for "The Desolation of Smaug". To do that, he is looking for external specialists, so called "orchestrators" who adapt written music to the actual film edit. Clifford J. Tasner (orchestrator on Life of Pi, Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows et al) has already been hired; there is also talk about hiring Conrad Pope as well who orchestrated many film scores, among others by John Williams, Danny Elfman et al.

What do you think about this? I somehow don't like the idea. Howard Shore is one of the few composers who wrote the score as well as orchestrated and conducted it. I would love to see him sticking to the high standards he had set for the LOTR trilogy. Using third-party orchestrators looks like cutting corners to me.
