‘Maestro’ soundtrack scored by Michael Csányi-Wills is out now
“Fast-moving, hard-hitting and ultimately inspiring”
We are delighted to announce that ‘Maestro’, scored Air-Edel composer Michael Csanyi-Wills, is now available for on ITunes.
The feature-length film by writer/director David Donnelly explores the artistic process through the eyes of multi-Grammy award-winning conductor Paavo Jarvi, who serves as the musical director of the Orchestre de Paris, and takes us on a creative journey rich in culture and history. Two years in the making, its objective was to present an “insider’s view” of the world of classical music, to capture “the pressures of self expression, the rush of performance and the power of a universal language.” The film also stars a host of world famous classical musicians, including Joshua Bell, Hilary Hahn, Lang Lang, and Pekka Kuusisto.
On composing the score, Michael Csanyi-Wills said:
“It needed to be a score that complimented the music, but didn’t compete with it, whilst retaining the musical integrity of the film. So it was challenging, and lots of fun.”
The documentary has received a number of brilliant reviews, and has been highly praised for making classical music accessible to new listeners, and exploring the genre in a new light. ‘Maestro’ is already one of the most widely distributed documentaries on classical music ever made, having been translated into 10 languages and aired on networks spanning five continents. It has been screened to thousands of students across the US, many of whom have never stepped inside a concert hall. It is available to the general public via iTunes in the US, Canada, Ireland, and England, and you can find it in the ‘New Discoveries’ section.
