Collaborative Film Orchestrator
Dr. Calabrese’s talent for film and television score composition is enhanced by his innate collaborative spirit. The film producer/director Richard Thrift has said, “Helmut is not only talented but extremely helpful in working out the creative process in understanding your vision and producing work that is second to none.”
Music and Film industry author Michael Redman said, “Rarely do I meet someone with a sense of what music a film needs and is as easy to work with as Helmut.”
Founder/CEO at Bentley Records, Luca Dayz, said, “Dr. Helmut Calabrese is a top professional. I had the pleasure of working with him on the composition of a record titled Teddy Bear for Ukrainian superstar Tina Karol. Helmut did absolute justice to the song and made a beautiful arrangement. I look forward to doing more work with him in the future!”.
Helmut has an unparalleled capacity to pinpoint a director’s vision and create a score that embodies complex emotion, subtleties, and nuances.
