Hans Zimmer to Receive Outstanding Contribution Award
Zimmer has previously won an Oscar for his score for Disney's Lion King and has two Golden Globes and three Grammys under his belt.
He also composed the main theme for Call of Duty: Modern Wafare 2, box office smashes The Pirates of the Caribbean and The Dark Night Rises and over 100 other films over his 30 years working as a composer.
Zimmer's work has been called 'a dominant force for classical music' by the Classic Brit awards committee, who are said to be 'absolutely delighted' to be honouring him with the award at the ceremony in October.
