This is a little suite I wrote based on Howard Shores new music for the Hobbit. It uses the new themes that can be heard in the trailer along with some well known themes from the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. There are also a few variations on some of them.

I tried to catch some of the distinct Middle Earth sound as far as that is possible with samples. The music was created using East West Symphonic Orchestra, Vienna Symphonic Library Special Edition and Quantum Leap Goliath. I used Logic Pro as a sequencer.

There are a few more themes from the Trilogy that will most likely be heard again in the Hobbit but I had not enough time to include in the suite, such as:

- the Rivendell theme
- the prominent "Rescue" (or "Nature") theme that appears in the Trilogy when the moth appears on weathertop, at the Last March of the Ents and before the attack of the Rohirrim at the Siege of Gondor, only to name a few scenes.
- I could imagine that the "Bad Gollum" theme will be heard when Bilbo steals the Ring from Gollum. The theme can be heard being played by the zither when Gollum sneaks up to Frodo and Sam as they sleep in "The Two Towers".
- also, the appearance of Galadriel promises some Lorien material.

But what is even better than the prospect of hearing all those wonderful themes again is the prospect of hearing some new ones. I think the themes that are introduced in the trailer (and one of them ["Misty Mountains"] seems to be a major theme for the movie) are really wonderful and I can't wait to hear more of Howard Shores new music for all the great characters, places and dangers of Bilbo's long journey.
