Scores by the Budapest Symphony Orchestra for an Indian musical inspired by “The Sound of Music”

The orchestration and recording of the long-awaited musical “Music School” is being finished in Budapest, Hungary. Written and directed by Papa Rao Biyyala, the film has compositions by music maestro Ilaiyaraaja.

The film, featuring 3 songs from the Oscar-winning and much-loved classic “The Sound of Music”, planned to record background music in Budapest to match the sound quality of The Sound of Music.

Featuring 11 songs, the film is produced by Hyderabad-based company Yamini Films. Previously, three songs from The Sound of Music were orchestrated by the London Philharmonic Orchestra ahead of filming. So the music composer and director thought it would be wise to have an orchestra of equal stature for the rest of the film’s music.

The recording was made at Tom-Tom Studio in Budapest and Laszlo Kovacs conducted the Budapest Symphony Orchestra.

“Dr. Ilaiyaraaja wrote many parts of the film’s background music for a symphony orchestra,” said director Biyyala. “So we contacted the Budapest Symphony Orchestra, one of the greatest orchestras in the world. “

“I am very happy that Raaja Sir has given so much time and dedication to his film,” added director Biyyala.

The film “Music School” tells how school systems and parents pressure children to pursue endless hours of study, hoping to produce doctors and engineers, leaving no time for activities. arts and recreation.

The cast of the film is led by Shriya Saran, Sharman Joshi, Shaan, Prakash Raj, Suhasini Mulay, Benjamin Gilani, Gracy Goswami and Ozu Barua. One of India’s finest filmmakers, Kiran Deohans, filmed Music School.

Music School will be screened September 12 and 18 in the industry/market section of the Toronto International Film Festival.
