Portuguese composer Nuno Malo, whose score for Julgamentowas recently released by MovieScore Media, has written an incredibly moving orchestral score for Amália, a dramatic portrayal of one of Portugal’s most famous musical personalities – Fado legend Amália Rodriguez.

If you have already checked out Julgamento, you know that Nuno Malo is a melody-driven composer who has a very firm belief in the role of strong themes – Amália showcases this even more, and is at the same time a very romantic, beautiful score where Malo’s rich string writing forms the backbone of the music. Among the many gorgeous compositions on the album are two versions of “Lament: Fado Dos Meus Erros” – the main theme of the score which is presented in two versions of which one features a very moving cello solo by Tina Guo.

Our CD release also features two original songs performed by Amália: ‘Estranha forma de vida’ and ‘Vou dar de bebar a dor’.
