There's now less than a month left until The Music of the Lord of the Rings Films is available worldwide, so that means it's almost time for me to hit the road!
I will first appear with Howard Shore in Vienna, Austria next Tuesday, September 14 as part of Hollywood in Vienna's week-long festival of film music. Details are available here. While the book's official European launch won't yet have arrived, we do plan on having a copy or two on-hand for browsing following our symposium presentation ... but you have to promise you won't take advantage of my jet lag and abscond with the thing!
I'll also be present at Vienna Concert Hall on Friday, September 16 as Howard receives the Festival's coveted Max Steiner Award at a performance of music by Steiner, Korngold, Rózsa, Horner, Kolonovitz, Williams, Badelt, and of course, Shore.
Please come say "hello" if you're present!
