La Puta y la Ballena
Director: Luis Puenzo (Academy Award Winner)
Andres Goldstein & Daniel Tarrab composed and conducted the music for the new Luis Puenzo film, La Puta y la Ballena, first shown in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on April 1, 2004 and in Spain on May 2004.
Although conceived to serve the dramatic needs of the film, frame-by-frame, the soundtrack can be regarded as an unusual piece of work in itself.
It features recreations of tangos which were composed and became very popular during the 1930's as well as two new tangos, La Lamparita and Matilde, created specially for the film.
These new tangos were composed and have been performed in the style of the 1930's.
The score is dominated by a fourty-piece orchestra made up of members from the Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional and Orquesta Filarmónica Nacional. They have been joined by bandoneón player Néstor Marconi -one of the world's foremost exponents of this instrument-, who gives a magnificent virtuoso solo performance, as well as Luis Roggero and Pablo Agri in Violin.
