Howard Shore is among today’s most respected and honored composers. Shore’s musical interpretation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s imaginative world of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, as portrayed in the films directed by Peter Jackson, have enthralled people of all generations for years. This work stands as his most acclaimed composition to date earning him with three Academy Awards, four Grammy Awards, and two Golden Globes. Since 2003 Shore’s music from the beloved trilogy has been constantly performed in concert halls around the world.

Shore has collaborated with David Cronenberg on 15 of the director’s films, including Maps to the Stars, The Fly, Crash, Dead Ringers and Naked Lunch. Shore continues to distinguish himself with a wide range of projects, from Martin Scorsese’s Hugo, The Departed, The Aviator (for which he won his third Golden Globe Award) and Gangs of New York to Ed Wood, Se7en, The Silence of the Lambs, Philadelphia, and Mrs. Doubtfire.

Most recently, the Chicago International Film Festival awarded Shore with a Gold Hugo Career Achievement Award.

Howe Records has released a live recording of The Lord of the Rings Symphony: Six Movements for Orchestra and Chorus, Shore’s magnificent score for Martin Scorsese’s Hugo, the soundtrack for John Stewart’s Rosewater, and many more.
