Ilan Eshkeri on bringing music to Coriolanus

We've been speaking to composer Ilan Eshkeri - the man responsible for the striking and unique modern score to Ralph Fiennes' daring new interpretation of Shakespeare's Coriolanus.

Ilan Eshkeri has made a real name for himself in recent years with acclaimed scores for such films as The Young Victoria, Stardust, Kick-Ass and just at the end of last year Johnny English Reborn.

His score for Coriolanus reflects the film's dark tone. Shot in Serbia and set in the present day, the film has garnered a great deal of praise for its bold and dark re-imagining of one of Shakespeare's most political of works.

Classic FM's Lucy Coward spoke to Ilan Eshkeri all about how he got involved  in the film and how he achieved the score's striking sound.
