The beginning of April saw me in the newly renovated Pannonia Studios in Budapest with the Hungarian Studio Orchestra. Recording Hollywood infused arrangements of classic Christmas carols, songs and hymns with other arrangements by Martin Batchelar & Thomas Hewitt Jones. Brilliantly produced by Arun Sethi for Cavendish Music I look forward to sharing the results later this year, once we've recorded choir to go on top!
In December I was thrilled to orchestrate and conduct this album of lovely music by composer Laurent Dury. It was a pleasure to work with Laurent and record the music with some of the best musicians in the world at Abbey Road Studio 2. A huge thanks to Cavendish Music and Laurent for having me involved.
Tracks that I recorded with Cavendish Music at Air Lyndhurst Studios are now available for licence and listening.
There were two albums that I contributed to. One was Vintage Latin Brass with a big band and the other was Cinephonic Brass with a symphonic brass ensemble. We later recorded strings for this album in Budapest via satellite. It was a terrific day of recording with the wonderful Jake Jackson on the desk and you can hear some of the results below, mixed by the talented Taz Mattar at Cavendish music.
