During the course of 2018, from April to December in Abbey Road, the Philharmonia Orchestra had the honour of recording Steven Price’s magnificent music to the landmark Netflix nature-documentary series, “Our Planet”. Narrated by Sir David Attenborough, the series has its world premiere in April 2019.
In an interview for Billboard, Price is effusive in his praise of the Philharmonia, which is also favored by fellow composers Brian Tyler and Christopher Lennertz. “The great thing about working with an orchestra like this is because they play together all the time, they sort of move as one,” Price says. “It brings a humanity and emotion to what they do. We used them for every episode, and when you’re that familiar you find yourself writing for certain players that you know will play a certain way.”
