‘The Hobbit’ score preview and tracklisting

This holiday season Peter Jackson is venturing back to Middle Earth with The Hobbit, and also along for the journey is Howard Shore, who established the world’s musical parameters. Today The Film Stage posted a preview of one of the score’s complete tracks entitled “Radagast the Brown”.

This is a perfect track for Warner Brothers to release. Not only does it feature those lush string arrangements and that boys choir to harken back to the familiar sonic landscape of Middle Earth, it also pushes that sound in a new direction with uniquely rhythmic percussion and frenetic, almost jig-like violins. If this is an indication of what the rest of the score will be like then Howard Shore has definitely concocted something special.
