In our latest interview, Ian has the absolute pleasure of sitting down with the wonderfully charming and incredibly talented composer Ilan Eshkeri, who talks about learning violin from an early age, collaborating with Matthew Vaughn on Stardust, the pressure of writing music for The Snowman and The Snowdog, recording Hannibal Rising with Dino De Laurentiis at Abbey Road, having heaps of fun on Kick-Ass, playing with numbers on 47 Ronin, the role of a film composer, creating the sound palette for Coriolanus, scoring the new Sergei Polunin documentary Dancer, being inspired by John Barry for the Johnny English Reborn score and answering many listener questions along the way. Enjoy!
Join Will & Wend over the wall in The Slaughtered Prince for their first Score Guide of 2017! In this episode we gush over composer Ilan Eshkeri‘s well-loved film score for the 2007 romantic fantasy, Stardust directed by Matthew Vaughn.
