Johan de Meij

 

The Lord of the Rings is a symphony based on the the epic high fantasy by English writer J.R.R. Tolkien. Each of the five movements illustrates a personage or important episode from the trilogy. This piece, the composer’s first, received the prestigious Sudler Composition Award in Chicago in 1989.

Johan de Meij (b. 1953) studied trombone and conducting at the Royal Conservatory of Music at The Hague, Netherlands. Besides composing and arranging, he is very active as a trombonist with various orchestras and is in much demand as a guest conductor.
