SLOVAK NATIONAL SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
The Slovak National Symphony Orchestra was formed in 2002 as an independent and exclusive orchestra comprising top musicians from the various orchestras in Bratislava, including most of the principals from the Slovak Radio Symphony, Slovak Philharmonic Orchestra, Cappella Istropolitana and the Slovak National Opera Orchestra. The independently managed SNSO includes most of the principals from the Slovak Radio Symphony, Slovak Philharmonic, Cappella Istropolitana and the Slovak National Opera Orchestra, and has developed a world-class reputation for film, television, classical and popular music recordings. In addition to some hundred film and television contributions, the orchestra has also made numerous classical CD recordings for Naxos, Albany and EMI, with the conductor Kirk Trevor and others, and has also recorded many major computer game projects from Warhawk for Sony with Christopher Lennertz to Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire for EA with composer James Hannigan. Other projects have included a complete re-recording of Miklós Rózsa’s Oscar-winning score to Hitchcock’s Spellbound to commemorate the composer’s centenary for Intrada Records.
