Torre x Torre
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack


Composers: Andrés Sánchez Maher and Gus Reyes
Label: Plaza Mayor Company Ltd
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 25 October 2020

Plaza Mayor Company Ltd release Andrés Sánchez Maher and Gus Reyes's original score for the documentary Torre x Torre. The film tells the fascinating and tragic story of Carlos Torre, one of the most brilliant geniuses that has ever played chess...

The soundtrack to Torre x Torre is quite a subtle, yet powerful score. It opens and closes with the film's main and most impressive theme. The album's 14 tracks (38 min, 12 sec) have a number of themes running through them. There's a little jazz dotted around as well an array of unusual instruments used to portray different locations.

While it's "busy", when you strip it back it's mainly comprised of functional set pieces. It's a good all rounder, that will be warmly welcomed by fans of the documentary, although whether there is enough engaging material for casual soundtrack collectors is another matter.
