La tropa de trapo en el país donde siempre brilla el sol
Limited edition of 500 copies.
This wonderful and dynamic score was written by the young Spanish composer Zeltia Montes (winner of the Jerry Goldsmith Award in the Ubeda International Film Music Festival in 2009) for the animated film "The Happets in the Kingdom of the Sun" (a.k.a "La tropa de trapo en el país donde siempre brilla el sol") directed by Alex Coll in 2010.
Recorded in Russia with the Kiev Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, the score moves from the realm of pure symphonic music to the the bossa nova, from swing to mickey-mousing, fanfares to action music... all wrapped in a delicate and stunning orchestration.
It is without doubt one of the great discoveries of the year, and Quartet Records is proud to present the score of this small and delightful film that deserved a release on CD from the beginning.
