As the award-winning writer of such scores as THE LAST EMPEROR, DRIVING MISS DAISY, and THE LION KING, Hans Zimmer is one of the most successful and sought-after composers in the film industry. Zimmer won a Grammy for his score for the 1995 film CRIMSON TIDE, and the soundtrack bears many of the hallmarks of Zimmer's finest work. The composer builds dramatic passages using electronics, a men's choir, and traditional orchestral instrumentation, masterfully and elegantly integrating the three. As a film accompaniment and as a stand-alone recording, CRIMSON TIDE is among Zimmer's best work.
