Without being really there, John Williams - or rather the music he wrote - will be given pride of place twice at Paris Grand Rex. After "The Very Best-Of John Williams" this upcoming November, the Parisian venue also houses the "Les musiques de John Williams et Hans Zimmer en concert symphonique" live shows on Monday March 21, and Tuesday 22, 2022.
This event rings a bell? This is normal, it is not the first time this program is performed in Paris. In December 2019, it was already played at the Salle Pleyel as “John Williams VS Hans Zimmer”.
Although the name changed a bit, the symphony concert program remains the same: the greatest movie soundtracks live with a symphony orchestra. Star Wars, Gladiator, Harry Potter, Batman, Pirates of the Caribbean, Jurassic Park, Interstellar and even Indiana Jones… All the music of these all-time famous movies will be performed in symphonic version.
For over two hours, the Yellow Socks Orchestra conducted by conductor Nicolas Simon will perform for the Parisian audience the most famous movie soundtracks composed by two genius, I name American John Williams and German Hans Zimmer.
The both of them have created a very large number of musical masterpieces: E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, The Schindler’s list, Jaws, Inception…
Note Hans Zimmer will perform live at the Accor Arena in April 2022.
To experience live, and with a symphony orchestra, these famous movie soundtracks, head to Paris Grand Rex on March 21 and 22, 2022.
