New from Quartet Records...
Quartet Records, MediaPro and RTVE present the original soundtrack album composed by three-time Academy Award-nominated composer Alberto Iglesias for the film documentary Spain In A Day, directed by Isabel Coixet. The music links all of the stories, and Alberto Iglesias offers a kind of ballet—dancing with rhythm and excitement between the different chapters—classy and fabulously written for an ensemble of 17 musicians. With echoes of Rota and Delerue, the sweepingly melodic and deeply emotional music sincerely and respectfully represents the joie de vivre of the Spanish people. This score is a great surprise and certainly one of the great efforts of the composer.
Quartet Records presents Gernika, the original soundtrack album of the new collaboration between Fernando Velázquez and director Koldo Serra, following their collaboration on The Backwoods, which was also Velázquez’s first score! Gernika takes place in the Basque Country of Northern Spain during the country’s turbulent internal struggle in the lead up to World War II. Composer Fernando Velázquez conducts the Budapest Orchestra and Chorus in an impressive full epic symphonic score, 75 minutes of pure film music composed as in the good old days—romantic, melodic, with a radiant love theme, exciting action music, and a 25-miunute tour-de-force piece for orchestra and choir which accompanies without stop the bombing massacre of Gernika.
Quartet Records, Idol and MK2 present Juste La Fin Du Monde, the original soundtrack for the new collaboration between Gabriel Yared and Xavier Dolan following their first film together—the thriller Tom at the Farm. Gabriel Yared provides a bittersweet, romantic, deeply nostalgic score, which was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London. The album also includes five songs by Camille, Blink-182, Grimes, Exotica and Moby.
Quartet Records and Pathé present the original soundtrack written by brilliant composer Éric Neveux for Danièle Thomson’s new film Cézanne Et Moi, starring Guillaume Canet and Guillaume Galliene. Thompson, a prestigious writer and director, directs Cézanne et moi, which tells the true history of the friendship between Paul Cézanne and Emile Zola. They left Aix-en-Provence for Paris and quickly became part of the art scene in Montmartre and Batignolles. Éric Neveux provides a beautiful, sometimes Impressionistic score, a pastoral symphonic poem. The score was recorded at Air Studios in London, with orchestra under the baton of Alastair King.
