Pascal Gaigne, who has recently received the critics’ choice awards for Best National Composer and Best National Score by the web Scoremagacine (read news), has confirmed he will attend FIMUCITÉ in September to receive the awards.
Thus, on September 29th, the Tenerife Auditorium “Adán Martín” will host the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra, that will interpret the author’s scores for the films The Lighthouse of the Whales (winner for Best National Score) and The Olive Tree (nominated for the Goya Awards this year, and which has been his third nomination). Both pieces will be played at the beginning of that night’s thematic concert, called: “Sword and Sorcery. Symphonic Chronicles of a Legendary Era”.
The French composer, who has lived in Spain for the past 20 years, has visited FIMUCITÉ twice, in 2014 and in 2015, when he was also awarded by the critics as best national film music composer.
In the recent Malaga Film Festival, Pascal Gaigne summed up the Silver Biznaga Award for the best score, for his work at Iñaki Dorronsoro’s thriller Escape Plan, to his splendid list of achievements. (read news)
