Spain’s most acclaimed composer, Alberto Iglesias’s early musical training included the piano, guitar and composition as well as electronic music studies. His considerable experience in film composition began in the 1980s with Spanish directors such Pedro Almodóvar, Julio Médem, Iciar Bollain and Carlos Saura. With Almodóvar he has produced some of the most beautiful and memorable collaborations of music and film. He has also worked with directors Oliver Stone, Fernando Meirelles, John Malkovitch and Marc Forster. His film accolades include Academy award nominations for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, The Skin I Live In, The Constant Gardener and The Kite Runner.

 

  

‘One of my greatest joys is to watch a composer spread his wings, and create the most affecting moments in film. Alberto Iglesias score for the Kite Runner is a continuous movement within the story telling, never overlapping itself. Nothing is ever ended or dismissed, and nothing is ever begun and finished. His score is like a wheel created by senses, where the senses are set whirling into the infinity of space. It is timeless, spaceless and moving.’ Marc Forster
