Sherlock Holmes: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Sherlock Holmes premiered in the United States on Christmas Day in 2009, with Sherlock Holmes: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack released by Watertower Music a couple of weeks later on the 12th of January 2010. Hans Zimmer was invited to compose the score after Guy Richie had used his Dark Knight soundtrack temporarily during editing.

The album is 52 minutes consisting of original works composed by Zimmer. Zimmer created the distinctive sound using a banjo, cimbalom, squeaky violins, and even a broken pub piano played in an underground car park at 20th Century Fox.

The score from Sherlock Holmes was nominated for an Academy Award for best score, but lost to Up by Michael Giacchino.

Sherlock Holmes was inspired by the 1901 novel The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows was released on the 16th of December 2011, the original motion picture soundtrack having been released three days earlier on the 13th. As with the 2009 film, the score was composed and produced by Hans Zimmer.

However, Renato Girolami’s "To the Opera!”, Julius Drake’s "Die Forelle” and Ennio Morricone’s "Two Mules for Sister Sara" are also included. The Morricone piece is from the 1970 movie of the same name, directed by Don Siegel and starring Clint Eastwood.

The story of Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows Original Motion Picture Soundtrack was inspired by 'The Final Problem', from the 'The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes', which was published as a series in The Strand Magazine in 1892/1893 following the success of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes earlier that year.
