EL HOMBRE Y LA TIERRA (MAN AND EARTH / 4 CD / 1000 EDITION) (CD)
Composed by: Anton Garcia Abril

Quartet Records and TVE presents the world premiere release of the classic Spanish TV documentary series composed by Antón García Abril (Texas Addio, Il Cobra, Fortunata y Jacinta, the Blind Dead films) in a mammoth 4-CD set.

El Hombre y la Tierra (Man and Earth) was a television series about nature, presented and directed by naturalist Félix Rodríguez de la Fuente. It was originally broadcast from 1974 to 1981, interrupted when Rodriguez de la Fuente passed away in a helicopter accident while filming an episode in Alaska in 1980.

This series was a reference for future nature documentaries both in Spain and abroad (the series was distributed in several countries). The series inaugurated a new form of documentary and was divided into three parts: the Venezuelan Series (shot in Venezuela), the Iberian Fauna Series (shot in Spain), and the American Series (shot in Canada and Alaska); 124 episodes were filmed in total.

With a main theme that instantly became a pop culture classic in Spain, García Abril specifically wrote the music for several episodes, as well as a huge amount of reference themes to be used in others. Mostly written for symphony orchestra and chorus, the music includes echoes of Debussy and Ravel as well as risky experimentation between classics and pop—all handled with the composer’s characteristic sound. El Hombre y la Tierra is one of the great epic soundtracks in the television music of the seventies.

After more than three years of work (including an exhaustive search for elements and rights clearance), this masterpiece of Spanish film and TV music, much requested by many fans around the world, is finally available. Carefully restored and mastered by Chris Malone from the best possible sources provided by TVE and the composer (mostly in stereo, with some cues in mono), this project has been entirely supervised by Maestro García Abril and produced by Miguel A. Órdóñez, who also provides detailed liner notes.
