LMO recently recorded Steve Coogan's new movie Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa with composer Ilan Eshkeri at British Grove studios.
Alpha Papa, which is directed by Declan Lowney and co-written by Peter Baynham and Steve Coogan, follows the fortunes of Alan Partridge as he progresses from radio host to hostage negotiator..
Ilan Eshkeri used a small string section for the recording, comprising 7 violins, 2 violas and 2 celli. David Juritz led LMO which was conducted by Andy Brown and the session was engineered and produced by Steve McLaughlin and Ilan Eshkeri. After the string session, further piano and vocal overdubs were recorded.
Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa, which is distributed by StudioCanal, opens in UK cinemas this August 7, starting with a premiere in Norwich, followed by a London premiere in Leicester Square.
