An Unexpected Show! Howard Shore has taken us back to Middle Earth with his latest score to The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. These scores are truly based off of the Tolkien classics. When writing the music, Shore would sit with the book and sketch musical ideas that paralleled what he was reading. Shore is surround by what he calls "his own Shire", and he looks at each of these scores as his own "quest". Tune in this Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 5pm to hear how he takes what has already been established and creates a new but familiar score.
