Quartet Records is glad to release the new work by the great Fernando Velázquez!

ZIPI & ZAPE Y EL CLUB DE LA CANICA (aka ZIP & ZAP AND THE MARBLE GANG)




If you’re going to have a great adventure, you’d better have a good partner along for the ride, because having someone to share it with makes it twice as much fun. And Zip & Zap are two of a kind!

Directed by Oskar Santos (El mal ajeno), and based on the popular Spanish comic characters created by Escobar, the film tells the story of Zip & Zap, naughty twins who, after they steal their final school exams, are sent to the Esperanza, a strict summer school where all types of entertainment are forbidden. Their mischief gets out of hand when they form the Marble Gang, the children’s resistance, to defy the evil headmaster. The Gang winds up uncovering a mysterious secret hidden deep within the school. Thanks to their wits, bravery and unwavering faith in friendship, Zip & Zap and the rest of the Marble Gang are in for the most wonderful adventure of their lives.

The exciting full symphonic score is composed and conducted by Fernando Velázquez (The Impossible, Mama, The Orphanage, Devil, The Last Days). An orchestral tour-de-force, which brings us back to the glorious sound of American adventure films in the ’80s, it is an emotional tribute from Velázquez to the film music that caught the dreams and imagination of a generation. There are echoes of Alan Silvestri, Bruce Broughton, James Horner and John Williams, handled by the composer in his own personal orchestral style.

Stunningly performed by the RTVE Symphony Orchestra & Chorus under the baton of the composer, this score is, without a doubt, one of the most remarkable efforts of Fernando Velázquez, and a real treat for nostalgic film music lovers.

This album is now available for pre-order. The CDs will ship next October 14th.

Loved Velazquez's work on The Impossible. I'm not familiar with the film, but the samples sound great. I will probably be picking this one up in a future order...

Thanks Quartet :-)

Now if only I could find a copy of The Orphanage somewhere...

Fantastic news to come back home and discover after a week in Vienna!!
I suppose there won't be any autographed copies available? frown

Great samples!

Hmmm... May you be kind enough, Quartet Records, to confirm us an expanded reissue of El Orfenato is coming (as you edited your answer to Spymaster about it), please?

Well, that wouldnt be entirely bad, but with someone as underrepresented and busy as Velazquez I would personally much prefer some of his completely unreleased scores such as this awesome gem:

Guys, take a chance on this one cause it's really good. It's an oldfashioned (in a good way) score with multiple themes and great choral work. He clearly knows his classics but puts his own spin on things. Great stuff!

This is a fantastic score and frankly I'm embarrassed that the members of this board don't praise well written symphonic film music when it is released - even if it is a foreign film. It almost reminded me of a Harry Potter type mystery-adventure score at times.

Some members of this board like to complain that there's no good film music anymore, and then ignore any that doesn't accompany the big theatrical releases. It can be like pulling teeth getting anyone to try or discuss anything from a more obscure release.

THIS.
Where was the love when War of the Buttons score was released? Where was the love for the Pascal Gaigne music released? The samples are fantastic so I will be ordering this one for sure along with the absolutely gorgeous score to Amaren Eskuak by Gaigne.

Truth. I am a huge fan of Velazquez' The Impossible which came out earlier. It's the only work I've heard from him but it's fantastic - that cello theme is gorgeous. Unfortunately, I don't have the cash to buy each release I want, but if someone puts this up on YouTube or Spotify or whatnot and I find it, then I'll give it a listen.
