The Miami Symphony Orchestra is making history with Telemundo by recording the soundtrack for the second season of the hit series “La Reina del Sur”, which premieres on April 22 at 10 pm/9C on Telemundo.
Eduardo Marturet, musical director and conductor of the Miami Symphony Orchestra, and Latin Grammy-nominated composer and musician, Alberto Slezynger, along with Marcos Santana, president of Telemundo Global Studios, who is the Showrunner and Executive Producer of the series, are making history on Hispanic television in the United States.
The soundtrack was created to accompany the different plots of the series, including the romantic, suspense and action scenes. It was performed by a symphony orchestra of more than 50 musicians.
“This symphonic music, apart from the fabulous sound, is played by human beings … as it happens on stage or on the set we do not have robots, we have real people,” said Marturet.
“This is the first time we have worked on a product for the Hispanic market with a live musical orchestra. The idea is to do it as Hollywood does,” added Slezynger.
Marcos Santana, who in TVMAS we call the “King Midas of Content” or “The Lionel Messi of Content” said that “It is a source of pride and pleasure for me to work with Eduardo Marturet. “For several years Eduardo asked me to take the step and proposed to me the idea that the orchestra create the music for one of our series. The time has come. La Reina del Sur is of the perfect caliber and its dimension equals the importance of the Miami Symphony Orchestra.
Filmed in eight countries, the return of “La Reina del Sur” retakes the story of the powerful drug trafficker Teresa Mendoza eight years after she disappeared in the hands of the federal witness protection program of the USA after sinking the Mexican presidential candidate Epifanio Vargas. Now she leads a life in total anonymity in Italy, as Maria Dantes, while raising her daughter Sofia in the Tuscan villa Massa Marittima. However, her life will take an unexpected turn and she will have to do everything possible to recover her throne as La Reina del Sur.
This second season is a co-production of Telemundo Global Studios and Netflix.
