Howard Shore (b1946)

Howard Shore (born 1946) worked in pop music and television before making a name in film music in collaborations with director David Cronenberg, a fellow Canadian. Shore spent over three years working on Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings, discussing his long-hand sketches with the director for over a year before shooting began. Shore regards several of his film scores as operatic; he specifically cites Silence of the Lambs (1991) and Looking for Richard (1996), and his operatic version of Cronenberg’s 1986 film The Fly had its première in Paris in 2008. He regards The Lord of the Rings trilogy as a three-act opera, though he has adapted it into a six-movement symphony. The Symphonic Suite from the films’ middle panel, The Two Towers, incorporates seven of the trilogy’s fifty-plus motifs, including instrumental versions of some of the songs.
