Leos Strings consistently provide top quality performances and professionalism and as a result have become my go-to string group for projects ranging from contemporary concert music to video game and television scores. Whether it’s a last minute solo overdub or a full day’s recording they always strive for the highest musical standards. A pleasure to work with
Brookspeare music is terrific. Rachel is a very accomplished cellist and played the parts I needed recording perfectly and with a lot of feeling. The cello was beautifully recorded by her husband Richard. Communication was excellent throughout and the files were well labelled making the whole experience very easy.
I brought along a (decently tricky) string quartet arrangement for a pop song to one of Brookspeare Music’s hour long recording sessions last Autumn. The environment was relaxed, very friendly, and highly professional and time-efficient. I sat in on the recording session with the members of Leos Strings, all of whom were excellent musicians. I would have been happy to use their first pass of the arrangement on a record. With minimal direction from me, (to which everyone was responsive and receptive) over the course of an hour we’d recorded three great takes of the arrangement, allowing me to pick and choose the sections from each take that were most adaptable to the existing material. The recording setup was clean and effective, rendering a mix that sounded great simply dropping the unprocessed stems into a DAW. All round it was a fun, friendly, efficient session with a great quartet. I’d love to work with Brookspeare Music and Leos Strings again in the future.
Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say I’ve had the first mixes of the tracks back featuring your strings. They’ve totally come to life – you did an amazing job, thank you! Justin, The Producer asked me to pass on his thanks too, he’s really made-up with the result
I found Leos Strings when looking for session musicians to record my first composition to be publicly released. Never having worked with performers before and with no idea what I was doing, Rachel was incredibly helpful in advising me, tidying up the score, and delivering professionally recorded well performed recordings with a quick turnaround. Very professional and friendly, I’ll be back for more!
I’m incredibly pleased with the recording. You guys really brought it to life and the feedback I’ve received on the piece has been fantastic! I’m also thoroughly impressed that you were able to pull off such a great performance with only an hours session. I look forward to being able to work with you guys again at some point.
So impressed with @Leos_Strings! Easy to deal with, great recordings, alternate takes so there’s plenty of choice. Composer chums, if you need real strings remotely they are a definite go-to.
I’ve just downloaded and listened to the files and everything sounds great, I’m very happy with the outcome! Thanks for your professionalism in recording both versions.
