'Fellowship of the Ring' score to be performed
Two performances at Radio City Music HallLudwig Wiki will conduct Switzerland's 21st Century Symphony, the Collegiate Chorale, the Brooklyn Youth Chorus and soprano Kaitlyn Lusk in two performances of Howard Shore's Oscar-winning score of "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring," performed along with a screening of the film, at New York City's Radio City Music Hall on Oct. 9 and 10.
"This new presentation of cinematic image and music came about as the process of releasing 'The Complete LOTR Recordings' was coming to an end," Shore said. "After three years of working with the wonderful recordings I had a real interest in having he complete score performed live. From the very first time I sat in the audience watching and listening, I felt that I was seeing the music with more clarity and hearing the image in an entirely new way. It became a completely new experience. Maestro Ludwig Wicki is the foremost conductor of this score-to-film concert. His precision, detail and supreme musicianship will be on display at Radio City."
