Alfred Music Publishing, the official print music publisher of thousands of popular artists, songwriters, and composers, releases Sherlock Holmes: Sheet Music Selections from the Warner Bros. Pictures Soundtracks , the highly anticipated piano music folio featuring select pieces by the award-winning film composer Hans Zimmer, from Warner Bros. Entertainment's blockbuster film franchise.

The brilliant film scoring by the prolific and highly lauded composer is yet again showcased in the recent blockbuster Sherlock Holmes films. Sherlock Holmes: Sheet Music Selections from the Warner Bros. Pictures Soundtracks captures the sounds that moved the action/adventure crime saga in the carefully transcribed piano solo arrangements. Perfect for aspiring film composers and pianists who enjoy the films’ score, the folio provides a deep exploration of the music with solo piano reductions of three standout selections from each soundtrack including “Discombobulate,” “I Never Woke Up in Handcuffs Before,” “It's So Overt It's Covert,” and more.

Hans Zimmer is a multi-award winning composer and keyboard synthesizer player, and is recognized as one of the most successful film score composers of our time. His work on Sherlock Holmes garnered an Academy®-award nomination for “Best Original Score” in 2012, as well as a Grammy® nomination for “Best Score Soundtrack Album.” Another one of Zimmer's best known works is the score to Disney's Academy-award winning and most popular animated film The Lion King, whose original soundtrack recording sold nearly 12 million copies and is the best-selling record in the history of Walt Disney Records. Hans more recent compositions include the score to Inception – nominated for an Oscar in 2011 for “Best Original Score” as well as a Grammy for “Best Score Soundtrack Album" – and The Dark Night, which won the Grammy for “Best Score Soundtrack Album” in 2009.
