Travelogue: Recording with the Budapest Scoring Orchestra in Budapest, Hungary (October 2022)

(Above: The amazing Budapest Scoring Orchestra, recording "Oh, the OF It All!".)

In October of 2022, after a wonderful concert in Tours, France with Christina Goh; I traveled to Budapest, Hungary to record “Oh, the OF It All!”, my nine-minute ballet based on a libretto by the John J King, with the Budapest Scoring Orchestra in Rottenbiller Studio. (You can learn more about this piece, and watch a video of the Budapest Scoring Orchestra’s full performance of the work, right HERE.)

While in Hungary for the session, I was also lucky to have some free time to explore the beautiful city of Budapest. Here are a few photos and videos from my visit!:
