James on conducting & orchestrating Patrick Doyle’s score for upcoming British film ‘A United Kingdom’.

Back in April I joined Patrick Doyle in orchestrating his new Score for the upcoming British period biopic movie ‘A United Kingdom’. Directed by Amma Asante and starring David Oyelowo and Rosamund Pike, the film is based on the true-life romance between Seretse Khama and his wife Ruth Williams Khama, it’s a terrific film.
The recording of the score took place in Prague with the City of Prague Philharmonic orchestra and conducted by moi! Orchestrated for a large string orchestra, some french horns and a couple of woodwinds, It has a timeless, sweeping quality about it and I’m sure its going to make a good stand-alone soundtrack”.

‘Untited Kingdom’ is released in cinemas in October 2016
