Howard Shore The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers - The Complete Recordings Limited Blue Vinyl 5LP Box Set

Overview:
The Lord of the Rings is one of most successful trilogies in film history. Directed by Peter Jackson and based on the popular J.R.R. Tolkien novel of the same name, The Lord of the Rings earned a total of 17 Academy Awards. Three of those awards were for the music that was featured in the films, which enjoyed wide commercial success and collectively has sold seven million copies.

On top of the limited edition 5LP blue vinyl box, the soundtrack will also be available as a 3CD disc set, plus 1 Blu-ray audio disc containing high-resolution 5.1 and stereo mixes of the entire score, a reactivation of the 2006 box set featuring the entire score from the extended versions of the film. Both versions come with extensive liner notes from author Doug Adams, who analyzes many of the themes and motifs used throughout the score.

The music for all three films was composed, orchestrated and conducted by Howard Shore. The music he wrote for ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers’ was performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra with contributions from the choirs: the London Voices and the London Oratory School Schola Boy’s Choir. The album was certified gold in the U.K. and won the Grammy Award for Best Score Soundtrack Album
