Prepare for the Battle of Helm’s Deep: The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers is being presented live to film at Radio City Music Hall (1260 Sixth Ave. at 50th St.) for two performances only on Friday, October 8th and Saturday, October 9th, 2010 at 7:30pm.

Following the success of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring concert last October, the Academy Award-nominated film sequel gets the same treatment at the world-famous Radio City Music Hall. Beneath an immense 60-foot screen, Howard Shore’s Grammy-winning complete original score will be performed live to Peter Jackson’s award-winning epic.

The music of Middle-earth will be brought to life by more than 300 musicians Switzerland’s 21st Century Symphony Orchestra, the Grammy Award-winning Brooklyn Youth Chorus, the award-winning Dessoff Symphonic Choir and renowned soprano Kaitlyn Lusk, all under the direction of celebrated Maestro Ludwig Wicki.

Last fall, over 10,000 people filled Radio City for The Fellowship of the Ring shows. The New York Times said, “The music of Middle-earth soared at Radio City Music Hall,” while Entertainment Weekly said, “It was a terrific night at the theater…Too bad we’ve got to wait until Oct. 9, 2010 to see The Two Towers in the same fashion.”

“This new presentation of cinematic image and music came about as the process of releasing The Complete LOTR Recordings was coming to an end,” says Howard Shore. “After three years of working with all of the original recordings I had a real interest in hearing the complete score performed live. From the very first time I sat in the audience watching and listening, I felt that I was seeing the music with more clarity and hearing the image in an entirely new way. It became a completely new experience. Maestro Ludwig Wicki is the foremost conductor of this score-to-film concert. His precision, detail and supreme musicianship will be on display at Radio City. I look forward to seeing you there.”

Doug Adams, musicologist and author of the book The Music of the Lord of the Rings Films, says, “Howard Shore’s music for The Lord of the Rings stands proudly as one of the most intricate and moving efforts in the history of the medium. The score-to-film performances create a fully immersive experience -- a night of dramatic theater, cinematic spectacle and symphonic grandeur that honors the incomparable imagination of J.R.R. Tolkien. Radio City Music Hall, with its opulence and history, was the perfect venue for The Fellowship of the Ring and we are thrilled about The Two Towers. This will be a weekend like none other.”

Carpentier and Alfred Music Publishing will release of The Music of the Lord of the Rings Films, a comprehensive account of Howard Shore’s score for the trilogy, on October 5th, which coincides with The Radio City event. The culmination of almost a decade of writing and research, The Music of the Lord of the Rings Films is an unprecedented look at Howard Shore’s Academy Award-winning score, with extensive music examples, original manuscript scores, a rarities CD, and glimpses into the creative process from the composer, himself.
