Fernando Velázquez releases his new album ‘Viento’, recorded with the Basque National Orchestra

On 18 March Fernando Velázquez, a multi-award-winning composer and orchestra conductor, released his new album ‘Viento’ recorded a few months ago with the Basque National Orchestra, cellist Johannes Moser and the Kup Taldea choir.

The album contains three works of his own, “Concierto para violonchelo”, “Cantata de estío” and “Viento del oeste”, and is a very special release for Velázquez as it is his first musical production that is not part of a film or theatre project.

Fernando Velázquez: “Although I don’t see a fundamental difference between other works and those released now, it's the first time I’m presenting to the public in album format music that does not belong to a film or theatre project. My whole life I've been writing all kinds of music and it's the first time we're releasing music that is not related to anything. The fact that it’s with the Basque National Orchestra, Johannes Moser and Kup Taldea, is very exciting due to the admiration I feel for them and their involvement in the recording. As well as doing it with Pentatone, a referential record label worldwide”.

Fernando Velázquez regularly collaborates with the Basque National Orchestra. Together they have achieved huge success with the soundtracks for films such as A Monster Calls -with which Velázquez received the Goya Award for Best Original Score 2017-, Spanish Affair, The Invisible Guest, Submergence or series such as Patria. Velázquez has close ties to the Gipuzkoan choir Kup Taldea, with whom he recorded the score for the series Patria or the film The Orphanage. Viento is his first collaboration with Johannes Moser, a prestigious German-Canadian cellist and guest soloist in the recording of “Concierto para violonchelo”.
