Quartet Records is proud to present its 5 new releases:

MARROWBONE
Music Composed and Conducted by Fernando Velázquez
Performed by The Asturias Symphony Orchestra



Quartet Records present the new score by well-known composer Fernando Velázquez (Crimson Peak, A Monster Calls, Devil, Mama, Ozzy) for the directorial debut of Sergio G. Sánchez (screenwriter of The Orphanage and The Impossible). This thriller-horror-drama-western has been produced by J.A. Bayona, and stars Mia Goth (A Cure for Wellness), Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch), George MacKay (Captain Fantastic) and Charlie Heaton (Stranger Things).

The plot revolves around a young man and his four younger siblings. They have kept secret the death of their beloved mother in order to remain together, and are plagued by a sinister presence in the sprawling manor in which they live.

Fernando Velázquez has composed one of his most special, extensive and complex scores. It encompasses the sound of Gothic terror, full-blooded romanticism, lovely pastoral passages and a return to the openly symphonic sound that we miss in other current scores. Skillfully and precisely performed by the Asturias Symphony Orchestra under the baton of the composer. The CD includes 4 bonus tracks not included in the digital release, and the package features a 16-page booklet with in-depth liner notes and a track-by-track analysis by the film’s director, Sergio G. Sánchez.



HANDIA
Music Composed by Pascal Gaigne
Performed by The Bratislava Symphony Orchestra
Conducted by David Hernando Rico



Quartet Records presents the classy, exciting, moving and very special new score composed by Pascal Gaigne (El faro de las orcas, El olivo, Amaren Eskuak, Castillos de carton) for this period drama—his latest collaboration with Basque directors Aitor Arregi and Jon Garaño after 80 Egunuan and Loreak.

After fighting in the First Carlist War, Martin returns to his family farm in Gipuzkoa and discovers with surprise that his younger brother, Joaquin, is much taller than normal. Convinced that everyone will want to pay to see the tallest man on Earth, both brothers embark on a long journey through Europe in which ambition, money and fame will forever change the fate of the family. A story inspired by real events.

Composing the music for this film was a challenge for the composer. He gave his score a kind of romantic and impressionist color, with delicate orchestration, electronic textures, and a beautiful, flowing leitmotif that unfolds slowly throughout the entire score. The music is performed by The Bratislava Symphony Orchestra, conducted by David Hernando.



DOVE NON HO MAI ABITATO
Music Composed and Orchestrated by Pino Donaggio
Performed by The Bulgarian Radio Symphony Orchestra
Conducted by Gianluca Podio



Quartet Records presents the new score by Maestro Pino Donaggio (Don’t Look Now, Dressed to Kill, Blow Out, Passion, Patrick) for the latest film by Paolo Franchi (E la chiamano Estate). The film is an introspective drama—starring Emmanuelle Devos and Fabrizio Gifuni—about the emotional conflicts of a middle-aged couple.
Pino Donaggio has written a delicate, emotional, sad but romantic score, which is among his best efforts for any romantic drama. The composer develops an immediately recognizable melody; the orchestration favors strings and piano.
The Bulgarian National Radio Symphony Orchestra perform the score under the baton of Gianluca Podio. The intensity of the drama is captured perfectly in one of the most romantic scores of the year, written by one of the most indispensable melodists in film music history.



KNOCK
Music Composed, Orchestrated and Conducted by Cyrille Aufort



MovieScore Media and Quartet Records join forces in a groundbreaking collaboration to release Cyrille Aufort’s energetic score for Lorraine Lévy’s comedy starring Omar Sy in the title role. Knock is a classic French play which has already had several prior screen adaptations. It tells the story of Doctor Knock (Sy) who arrives in a town whose patients are too healthy. By using his charming personality and cunning deceit, the good doctor convinces everybody that they have some sort of great illness. But when he meets the beautiful Adéle (Ana Girardot), his plan may very well fall through…

French composer Cyrille Aufort’s score is anchored by a strong network of themes, driven by Knock’s propulsive motif, full of plans and hopes. While this theme is active and always in motion, the theme for Adèle lends a feminine charm to the narrative. It perfectly complements Knock’s restless personality with a childlike wonder recalling the sound of a magical music box. To bring two such wildly different characters together, Aufort introduces a third musical element, something a little more romantic to characterize the mutual attraction between the two protagonists (“Adèle and Knock,” “Farewell to Adèle”). The odious Lansky (a character who knows the truth about Knock) has his own espionage-flavored melody.

The CD package includes a 12-page full-color booklet with liner notes by Gergely Hubai, and statements from director Lorraine Lévy and composer Cyrille Aufort.



ZOMBILLENIUM
Music Composed by Eric Neveux
Conducted by James Shearman



Quartet Records and 22D Music present the new original soundtrack of music composed by Eric Neveux (Intimacy, Cezanne et moi, Richard the Stork) for the French-Belgian animated adventure film directed by Arthur de Pins and Alexis Ducord.

Halloween theme park Zombillenium happens to be the one place on earth where real monsters can hide in plain sight. When Hector, a human, threatens to disclose the true identity of the employees, the Vampire Park Manager has no other choice but to hire him. To see his daughter, Hector must escape from his zombie and werewolf coworkers.

Neveux’s score is exciting, vibrant, funny, dark and sometimes romantic. This orchestral tour-de-force was recorded in London under the baton of James Shearman. The CD also includes three original songs performed by Mat Bastard. The album was produced by Jean-Pierre Arquié and mastered by Benjamin Jobert.

Absolutely fantastic batch...

KNOCK is just a brilliant score!
Curious to hear new from Donaggio (especially after reading the description) and of course new Velázquez (the films looks promissing too).

Can't wait to get mine!

I love Pino Donaggio with all my heart so a new score by him is always call for celebration, but Holy God, Fernando Velázquez's "Marrowbone" sounds like an absolute revelation. The clips reveal a stunningly gorgeous Delerue-caliber score. I'm so floored by this I can barely find the words. From the clips I can tell this is a major contender for best score of the year.

That's good to hear, because Velazquez' scores in the last couple of years have been utterly underwhelming (when he's tried to copy mainstream trends).

I'm happy to report that Donaggio's ABITATO Is beyond stunningly gorgeous - just 40-odd minutes of piano & string nostalgia with no interruption. No pop, action and barely any cue above 'piano' (dynamic). It is not just a typical, mopey Eureopean Album and not boring however, just 'pure' Pino doing what he's best at. Highest marks, this will see a lot of play here at Melancholy Manor. Packaging is a stinker, just a single blurry photo and tech credits on the outside. It's OK this time since the score is worth it.

Best Donaggio in ages,
Sean

Thanks Sean,
I'm putting together a European order and the two latest Pino releases (Abitato and the old 80's thriller one from Quartet) are included in it.
Sounds great.

Telling ya Kev, that new one is bloody outstanding. The other, 1983 title, also good, but...I played the new, then that one, then the Quartet again last night ...winner:Abitato!
Both are worthwhile - I wish I could keep my Italian titles straight, but I'm laid up sick in bed today, so there!
