Tad: The Lost Explorer (Las Aventuras de Tadeo Jones) (Zacarías M. de la Riva)

Celebrating the great influence of such action film scoring heroes as John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith and Alan Silvestri, Spanish composer Zacarías M. de la Riva (Hierro, Imago Mortis) has written a truly entertaining and swashbuckling orchestral score for this feature film debut of Tadeo Jones – the animated adventurer who enjoyed great success already in two short movies also scored by de la Riva.

Our exciting album presents nearly one hour of first rate, Hollywood style adventure music featuring rollicking action scoring, heroic and romantic themes and many moments of musical awe and magic. The composer pays tribute in particular to Williams’ legendary Raiders of the Lost Ark score but still remains true to his own, refreshing symphonic voice. The music was crisply recorded with the Bratislava Symphony Orchestra who performs the score with spirit and stamina. Additional music composed by Àlex Martinez and James Peterson (The Red Canvas). Our release of the album coincides with the Spanish domestic release of the film on August 31 and will then be available on CD and digitally online as the film gets its international distribution.
