The German composer is primarily responsible and best known for bringing memorable scores to some of the most iconic films ever created, such as The Dark Knight, Gladiator, The Lion King, Pirates Of The Caribbean and the recently released Dune II. Zimmer himself did not conduct the orchestra, or show up in person at the show, instead appearing via a video feed in the background after every score, his fellow conductor and good friend Gavin Greenway filled the conducting role.

The first set began with music from the movies Man Of Steel, Driving (Miss Daisy), Pearl Harbour, The Rock, James Bond and of course the Gladiator, each score coming with immersive visuals and narration, enabling the audience to relive the magic of their favourite films in a entirely new way. It was in these moments that Zimmers true mastery shone through, reminding us of the power of music to touch the soul and stir the emotions.

After a short break, the 2nd set began, starting off with the scores from Wonder Woman, Kung Fu Panda, Sherlock Holmes and Dune II, the collaborations in the majority of the scores added an extra layer of depth and complexity, showcasing the breadth of Zimmers musical influences and talents. The set continued with The Lion King, the highest grossing animated film ever made as well as Monbasa, Inception as well as the all time classic film Pirates Of The Caribbean, as a memorable night drew to a close.
