Batman & Superman Triumphant At The Classic Brit Awards
Hans Zimmer wins a double at the Classic Brit Awards for his work on the scores of Man of Steel & The Dark Knight Rises.
The soundtracks won Zimmer the composer of the year prize at the ceremony at London’s Royal Albert Hall, fighting off competition from fellow nominees Ludovico Einaudi and Arvo Part.
He was also rewarded for his outstanding contribution to music, recognising a career which has also included the soundtracks to Christopher Nolan’s Inception and the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise.
The German-born composer – who accepted the latter award from Sir MIchael Caine, also performed at the event, accompanying the London Chamber Orchestra on the piano as they delivered a medley of his work.
The composer is currently working on The Amazing Spider-man 2 soundtrack.
