The winner of the International Film Music Critics Award for ‘Best Original Score for an Action/Adventure/Thriller Film’, one of five scores nominated for the ‘Film Score of the Year’ IFMCA award and a frequent top score on many reviewers ‘Best of Film Music 2013′ lists, Spanish composer Víctor Reyes’ highly virtuosic original music for the Hitchcock-inspired Elijah Wood thriller Grand Piano is being released by MovieScore Media and Kronos Records digitally on March 11 (coinciding with the US theatrical releases of the film) and will be available on CD by the end of the month. Paying tribute to film music classics such as Richard Addinsell’s Warsaw Concerto and Miklós Rózsa’s Spellbound Concerto, and with a nod to Hitchcock’s The Man Who Knew Too Much, the score is essentially a Piano Concerto featuring a lot of drama, rhapsodic writing and beautiful orchestrations. In addition, the strikingly original Main Title music and the “unplayable” piano extravaganza, ‘La Cinquette’ (co-composed by Eugenio Mira), bookends the album in a very exhilarating way. Enjoy one of the most original film scores written in recent time!
