From Gazeta LOTR Article
Wit Dominik was kind enough to send us this excerpt from the
recent Gazeta Wyborcza article regarding Wojciech Kilar composing the LOTR soundtrack.
Peter Jackson said: "I wanted to have
European music, symphonical, not American. I've always imaginated Tolkien's Middle-Earth
as old Europe."
Polish composer is excited about this
proposition. But he will start working in about 6 months - as soon as there will be the
first fragments of movie, which let him imaginate it.
Kilar, who made the music for Polish
superproduction "Pan Tadeusz" (on Polish screens from last Friday, www.pan-tadeusz.pl), is also the composer of
some foreign movies, for example: "Dracula","Truman Show".
The article was translated from Polish, so forgive the
grammatical errors. Many thanks to Wit for translating this and sending it to us.
