“Lone Ranger Finale” – A Hans Zimmer/Rossini Mash-Up Score

All film score composers are inspired by classical artists. Especially for the traditionally orchestral film composers, of course it’s going to sound classical, they use the orchestra after all. For example, John Williams’s style is more classical than contemporary and a lot of his scores are in the classical style; he even writes sonatas and symphonies! But other times it’s so obvious you can even hear a distinct tune that you know came from a classical piece. This is what Hans Zimmer does. Not only does he take just mere elements from classical music, but the tune, the song itself, and makes it his style. One of the songs he does this with is “To the Opera” from Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows to accompany an action scene involving an opera and the score fits in perfectly with the movie. You can read about that in the post “To the Opera!” – A Hans Zimmer/Mozart Mash-up Score. Another example I’m focusing on in this post is “Lone Ranger Finale” or “The Lone Ranger Theme.”
