Press Release from Quartet:
Quartet Records presents the soundtrack album of a new score by Goya Award-winning composer Pascal Gaigne (Handia, Loreak, El faro de las orcas, El olivo) for the supernatural horror fantasy directed by Pauk Urkijo Alijo and produced by Alex de la Iglesia.
In a small town in Álava, ten years after the First Carlist War in 1833, a government commissioner named Alfredo investigates an event that takes him to a sinister smithy in the forest, where a dangerous and lonely blacksmith named Patxi lives. The villagers tell dark stories about him related to robberies, murders and demonic pacts—until by the chance, an orphan girl named Usue manages to sneak into the mysterious smithy and uncover the terrible truth behind Patxi the Blacksmith.
Pascal Gaigne provides a 77-minute big symphonic big tour-de-force score, almost operatic, written for full orchestra and chorus (with subtle electronic effects). One of the composer’s most special scores—performed by the Bratislava Symphony Orchestra under the baton of David Hernando Rico—it will surprise his many fans with its change of style.
