Press Release from Quartet:
Quartet Records and Atresmedia Música presents the soundtrack album with the new score writen by prestigious Polish composer Zbigniew Preisner (La double vie de Verónique, Un Secret, Bleu, Blanc, Rouge, The Secret Garden, Aglaja) for the new film directed by Fernando Trueba (The Mad Monkey, Two Much, Academy-Award winner to Best Foreing Film for Belle Epoque in 1992).
La Reina de España (aka Queen of Spain) is the much heralded – and long-awaited – sequel to the 1998 hit The Girl of Your Dreams (the winner of seven Goya Awards, also garnering much popular acclaim). Fernando Trueba reunites again the same characters of the previous film almost twenty years laters. Penélope Cruz is back playing the main character: Macarena Granada, who, after her experiences in Berlin, travelled to Hollywood, where she became a star.
In the first movie the music was composed by the usual Trueba collaborator Antoine Duhamel, now Preisner takes over in this sequel, offering an unusual score for a comedy: fresh, fun, but aso deeply emotional, dramatic, sensitive and nostalgic. A vigorous score that has been recorded by The Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Adam Klocek.
