The soundtrack for one of this season's most anticipated films, Columbia Pictures and Imagine Entertainment's The Da Vinci Code, features original music composed by Oscar®-winner Hans Zimmer (Rain Man, The Lion King, Black Hawk Down, Gladiator). From director Ron Howard, producer Brian Grazer and screenwriter Akiva Goldsman, the Oscar®-winning team of A Beautiful Mind, along with producer John Cally (the Oscar®-nominated The Remains of the Day), comes the film version Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code. One of the most popular and widely discussed novels of our time, this movie includes a superb cast headed by two-time Academy Award®-winner Tom Hanks with Audrey Tautou, Sir Ian McKellan, Alfred Molina, Paul Bettany and Jean Reno. The soundtrack will be released May 9th on Decca. The film opens May 19th worldwide.
Zimmer recorded the soundtrack at Air Studios which Da Vinci Code fans will be delighted to know is situated on "Rosslyn" Hill in London, and also at Abbey Road Studios. Director, Ron Howard commented that the music recorded at the sessions was "powerful, fresh and wonderfully effective... Like every other facet of this movie, the score for The Da Vinci Code demanded a range of textures that recognized and reinforced the layers of ideas and emotion, which unfold as the basic story does." Zimmer once again captures the essence of suspense and tension that builds throughout the film. "The inspired Hans Zimmer has given us extraordinarily memorable music to appreciate within the framework of a film or completely on its own, where you can let the sounds carry you on your own private journey," summarized Ron Howard. The two have previously collaborated on Backdraft in 1991.
