The Lord of the Rings Symphony

(Redirected from Lord of the Rings Symphony)

Following the theatrical release of The Lord of the Rings (film series), 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.
