“…the sound is an absolute treat.”
Here is a short promotional video made by Alexander Barnes, featuring his arrangement of Pharrell Williams’ song Happy, for our friends at Blue Topaz
Herbert Howells – Requiem aeternam (1)
Here is a film I shot on the evening of 8 January 2015. More than 150 string players gathered in London’s Trafalgar Square last night to give a performance of Barber’s Adagio for Strings in tribute to the victims of the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris. The performance was led by violinist Thomas Gould and organised by Vanessa Lucas-Smith, cellist of the Allegri String Quartet.
It was also broadcast in the US on the Rachel Maddow show on MSNBC on 9 January 2015
Here are a couple of videos we made at the inaugural Southwell Music Festival this summer!
“The ensemble dispatches these piece with aplomb, engaging the listener with carefully crafted interplay and beautifully translucent textures, yet able to engage the full magnificence of their instruments at a moment’s notice!”
“It showcases both the ensemble’s virtuosity and lyrical playing in equal measure, proving a fitting conclusion to this exceptional release. Thoroughly recommended!”
Huw Morgan, Brass Herald
“Superb playing from living legends of the London orchestral brass scene. In these fantastic arrangements it’s sometimes hard to believe these pieces weren’t originally scored for brass. The musicianship throughout is second to none & the sound is an absolute treat.”
Composer (Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, The Winter’s Tale, Theatre of Blood)
We had the pleasure of supervising all the sound for the creation of this video, and the sound an app for mobile devices that is being developed for Aldeburgh Music
This encompassed recordings of over 1000 performers over the entire length of Aldeburgh during a two hour performance!
