Revision as of 10:02, 9 June 2009

Following the theatrical release of Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings, Howard Shore reworked the film scores of the trilogy into a more structured six-movement work for orchestra and choir, loosely titled The Lord of the Rings Symphony.

It has been performed in various concert halls around the world, accompanied by a light and visual art show by Alan Lee and John Howe. Recordings of the symphony have yet to be released.
