Ilaiyaraaja records with the Budapest Symphony Orchestra for “Music School”


One of India’s finest musical directors, Isaignani Ilaiyaraaja, got the background music for the musical film “Music School”, orchestrated and recorded in Budapest, Hungary.

Sources claim that the long-awaited musical with compositions by Ilaiyaraaja is coming to an end in Budapest.

Featuring 11 songs, ‘Music School’ was written and directed by Papa Rao Biyyala. The film includes three songs from the Oscar-winning and much-loved classic “The Sound of Music.”

The film is produced by Hyderabad-based company Yamini Films. The producers planned to record background music in Budapest to match the quality of the music for “The Sound of Music”.

“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.”

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 like the Budapest Symphony Orchestra to compose the rest of the music for the film.

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

“I am very happy that Raaja sir has given so much time and dedication to my film,” said director Biyyala.

Music School‘ chronicles how school systems and parents pressure children into endless hours of study, hoping to train doctors and engineers, leaving no time for arts and crafts. 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 on September 12 and 18 in the industry/market section of the Toronto International Film Festival.
