After his breakthrough with ‘Rain Man’ in 1988, he has composed for over 200 films and TV series. Despite minimal formal music education, he has established himself as one of the significant figures in the history of film.

In the 80s, he founded a studio with a vision to combine traditional orchestral sounds with electronic instruments, an approach that still characterizes much of his music.

After the success of ‘Rain Man,’ Hans Zimmer’s name became associated with several major films, including ‘Driving Miss Daisy.’ Although both films won the Oscar for Best Picture, it was with the animated film ‘The Lion King’ in 1994 that Zimmer won his first Oscar for Best Original Score, along with a Golden Globe and two Grammy Awards.

Zimmer has continued to be a central figure in Hollywood, contributing to iconic films such as ‘Gladiator,’ ‘Black Hawk Down,’ ‘The Da Vinci Code,’ ‘Pirates of the Caribbean,’ ‘Inception,’ and ‘The Dark Knight’ trilogy. In 2021, his music for the blockbuster ‘Dune’ earned him his second Oscar and third Golden Globe.

With credits in over 200 films according to IMDb, twelve Oscar nominations, three Golden Globe victories, and four Grammy Awards, Hans Zimmer has solidified his position as one of the foremost film composers, standing alongside legends like John Williams and Ennio Morricone. At the age of 66, he shows no signs of slowing down.

On this evening, the music takes full attention, and the concert will be performed without a film on screen.
