Behind the glass a few yards away, composer Christophe Beck listens carefully to a run-through of cue 5M55, “Anna and Olaf,” then offers a few suggestions to improve the performance: “More vibe and harp at bar 22. At 46, let’s not do the crescendo. Strings at 55 and 56, let’s have a little more. At 69, more bassoon; 73, mezzo-forte, not forte.” Another take and the 2½-minute cue is perfect.
Nearby, two directors, a producer and two music executives are all smiles as the music for the studio’s latest animated fairy tale nears completion.
“Frozen” is inspired by the Hans Christian Andersen tale
