Peter Bennett, wrote ‘the post event exercise up the 100 stairs only helped to warm up the naturally chilled surroundings!’Eleanor created three scored soundtracks to the 'Ludwig' Animated series for live performance, with the original animator Peter Lang in the audience and Jon Glover, as in the original, narrating live. A moment from history brought back to life. Commissioned by the Barbican Centre for the Beethoven Weekender event, ‘the music fitted beautifully with the action and showed real empathy and understanding for what we originally tried to achieve. I am still smiling’ - Peter Lang.Eleanor was commissioned by the Illuminated River Foundation to compose and record new music to celebrate the longest public art commission in the world, estimated to be seen by over 200 million people each year. On the day of the launch, the Guildhall String Quartet played a live version by the riverside.Once compositions are polished and ready, session players regularly jump onboard for the final take. Eleanor Fineston-Robertson has the added experience of organising parts, setting up the studio, conducting and post-production.
