Sir Anthony Hopkins has unveiled his plans to embark on a major world tour - as a concert pianist.

Hopkins, who won an Oscar for his portrayal of Hannibal Lecter in 'The Silence of the Lambs,' would play mainly his own compositions, which are hailed as 'haunting and ethereal' in the style of modern film music.

Malcolm Luker, an Australian musician, proposed the concept to the veteran actor last year when the two worked on 'Slipstream.'

Hopkins, besides directing and acting in the film, wrote most of the score.

The film itself did not receive good reviews, but critics were bowled over by the music, with one saying it had 'a hypnotic quality'.

The music success of the film boosted Hopkins' confidence to agree to the world tour.

"He is a great pianist," Times Online quoted Luker, as saying.

The tour will involve Hopkins playing the piano and telling anecdotes about his career.

Luker is organising the tour, which is expected to begin in Australiaefore heading round the world. (ANI)
