Stockholm Phil breaks into UK games music scenemain
Recording music for video games is what keeps Abbey Road open and British orchestras in spare change since the collapse of the classical record industry. The Brits have owned this business for a decade.
But others are now muscling in on the act. Munich and Prague are cheap and popular recording venues for film music.
And here comes Stockholm.
Stockholm? The most rigid, least entrepreneurial of music systems? Yes, the Swedish model.
The Royal Stockholm Phil are on video with Final Fantasy VI. Watch them in full fig here. Or just shut your eyes and listen below.
The conductor is Andreas Hanson.
