CENTURIES OF MUSICAL TRADITIONS
Nestled in Central Europe, Budapest Scoring combines centuries of musical heritage with modern state-of-the-art analog and digital recording equipment. In the 1980s, film studios began looking locations outside of the US and UK to record the highest quality film music within their shrinking budgets and turned to Budapest. Becoming the first and one of the best-loved destinations for film scoring sessions, Budapest has hosted Jerry Goldsmith, Michel Legrand, Alan Menken, Ennio Morricone and others who flew to Hungary to record music for movies such as RAMBO, A CHRISTMAS CAROL, LIONHEART, EXTREME PREJUDICE, and RENT A COP.
From heart of Hungary, the land of Liszt, Bartók, Kodály and Miklós Rózsa, record your music and get a taste of Budapest, one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.
