Product Description

Amazon.com

Academy Award-winning composer Hans Zimmer has created a blood-pumping dramatic score for Hannibal that pulses with Wagnerian intensity. Sir Anthony Hopkins's monologue on three tracks adds a dimension of hair-raising eeriness to the already deeply affecting and suspenseful instrumental backing. (Just hearing him first enunciate on the opener "Dear Clarice" sets up the Pavlovian sense of dread.) Hopkins's Hannibal Lecter is still on the prowl 7 years after FBI agent Clarice Starling first interviewed the criminally insane doctor (and 10 years since The Silence of the Lambs hit the theaters). This sense of uneasiness is captured alternately by deep, sustained notes and the rapid attack of a full-throttle orchestra. Whether it's the dark, tonal clusters of "Firenze Di Notte"; the desperate, descending notes that punctuate "Virtue"; or the chorale solemnity of the 10-minute "Let My Home Be My Gallows," the intent to horrify never waivers. --Rob O'Connor

'Hannibal' can count on some pretty good names when it comes to actors, the director, producers special effects and make-up artists and certainly the composer. After 2000 smash-hit 'Gladiator' director Ridley Scott asked Hans Zimmer (born 1958, Germany) to reunite for 2001's 'Hannibal'. 'Gladiator' was the most successful and best-selling score of the millennium year.
Zimmer is known for his rather striking and effective composing. Not many people may be aware of the fact they must have seen quite some movies that were flavored by Zimmer's great sense of drama. The many titles he worked on include 'As Good As It Gets', 'Thelma And Louise' (yet another Ridley Scott collaboration), 'Twister', 'The House Of The Spirits', 'Scream 2', 'The Lion King', 'The Prince Of Egypt' (still one of my favorite scores) 'The Road To El Dorado' (his second collaboration with Elton John after 'The Lion King') and 'Mission Impossible 2'. He has a huge productivity and never seems to over rush while writing his music. He can easily measure up with some of today's most well-known score composers, including Howard Shore ('The Silence Of The Lambs', 'Se7en', 'Dogma' and the future 'The Lord Of The Rings' trilogy) and Jerry Goldsmith ('Alien' (yet another successful Ridley Scott film) 'Basic Instinct', 'Mulan', 'Hollow Man' and the re-make of 'The Planet Of The Apes').
Enough titles, let's talk about 'Hannibal' (haven't we all for months now?). What a lot of people don't realize is that a movie's score can actually have a huge influence on how a viewer experiences a movie. Most scores work with a certain theme that is being repeated throughout the movie.

I was looking to purchase this soundtrack for one reason only...the music from the opera scene blew me away! The problem was that I am not a big classical music fan & I was not familiar enough with this type of music to know if that music I was so enamored with was an original piece from a real opera or if it was written by Hans Zimmer specifically for this movie & if it was just for the movie, would they have enough foresight to include it into the CD!? I was very happy to have been given the opportunity to read other reviews and listen to clips of the music BEFORE I purchased it to only be disappointed later. I read a review by Eugene, that stated he enjoyed the last two songs the best, so I listened to which one's he was referring to when low & behold I found my beloved opera music on Track 12 "Vide Cor Meum". How incredible that song makes me feel. Thanks Eugene for mentioning it and thanks to Amazon for giving me a chance to listen to the clip!! I'm buying it immediately for sure!

Like many others, I was struck by the score from the moment I saw the movie. Unlike most movie scores, this served both to the move the plot of the movie forward, and is an integral component of the movie in its own right.
I am a huge Hopkins fan, so was not bothered by the idea of having his voiceovers. However, if you are concerned, they are very quiet and subtle, and easy to ignore.
The track "Let my home be my gallows" is a masterpiece, and the rendition of Aria da capo from Goldberg Variations is superb. This is music to shut your eyes and the world out, and just soak it all in.
Incidentally, you do not need to see the movie to enjoy this CD. Even with the voiceovers, as stated before, they are very subtle and minor. It's simply a beautiful soundtrack with much "mood music".
I intend to check out other Hans Zimmer scores. I have never encountered a composer who has moved me this much with the exception of Danny Elfman. They are a totally different style, but they both have the same effect... wonderful music that stands apart from the movie, as well as being an integral part of it.
Ta ta.

OK, this was a tough CD to rate. I enjoyed the movie more than the book (thanks to the change in the ending), and I remember noticing the score while watching it. So, I was really excited to pick it up (especially since I am a huge Hans Zimmer fan). Upon getting it home and listening to it, though, I began to think that maybe this was a rare case where the film enhanced the music (rather than the other way around).
Certainly, the score has its moments (I've never listened to a Zimmer composition that didn't have something good in it). The last track, "Vide Cor Meum", is gorgeous and a feast for the ears. But as beautiful as that piece is, it is quickly followed by absolute stupidity in the placement of Sir Anthony Hopkins' dialogue from the film and a loud boom / explosion (which I thought blew out my speakers for a moment). So, when I say it "ends with a bang", I mean that both figuratively and literally. It is things like that which make this soundtrack a mixed blessing.
Overall, a few nice tracks, but a disappointing effort from a great film composer. A "put-it-on-the-shelf-and-pull-it-out-occasionally-to-listen" type of CD.

Hans Zimmer seems to be the composer of the moment in Hollywood, and why not? His score for "Hannibal" further proves that when he's on, he's really on -- his score for "Hannibal" is more entertaining than the film it has been written for, not to mention more haunting, scary and beautiful. But along with being a popular film composer comes the wrongheaded ideas that often get forced upon film soundtracks. Why are there dialogue snippets here? Sure, Anthony Hopkins is a wonderful actor and I love to hear his voice, but not when the music he is speaking over is superior to the film! Most dialogue tracks on soundtracks are annoying, and these are no different. Two big releases raped Zimmer's music in this fashion in the same year (remember "More Music from Gladiator"?). That being said, this is top-notch work from Zimmer and collaborator Patrick Cassady. Especially wonderful is the final track, an original operatic piece with a libretto taken from the writings of Dante Aligheri. Absolutely astonishing music in that last cut.
