The Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra Records Music for a Film about Nureyev
The Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra has been honoured with the task to record music for a film by famous British actor and director Ralph Fiennes about Rudolf Nureyev. To the delight of the orchestra, Fiennes attended the first recording day. The distinguished actor expressed his gratitude to the Belgrade Philharmonic for taking part is such an important project, which he had been working on for a long time.
“Three years after its debut appearance at Carnegie Hall, the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra will return to the American market, joining Ralph Fiennes in his journey straight to Hollywood. You must admit it sounds like a film plot. It gives me great pleasure, not only for being a part of such a prestigious international production, which we agreed during the great open-air concert in June, but also for being able to see how tax incentives to film producers, provided by the Government while I was the Minister of Culture and Information, are already paying off and turning Serbia into an increasingly desirable destination for filmmakers”, said Ivan Tasovac, Director of the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra.
For the film that portrays the life of the greatest ballet dancer of all time, the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra plays music from famous ballets by Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev and Minkus, arranged by Ilan Eshkeri, under the baton of Andy Brown, Music Director of the London Metropolitan Orchestra.
