“It is a composition made altruistically commissioned by the Victims of Terrorism Foundation on the 20th anniversary of his birth. Dedicated to the relatives who have lost their loved ones and the survivors, the composer wants to transmit with this piece a message of pain and solidarity, but also a vital desire to improve, to “search for light”.

Federico Jusid composed the original score to this new approach to the epic expedition of Magellan and Elcano around the world. Starring the outstanding duo Alvaro Morte as Elcano and Rodrigo Santoro as Magellan.
Guy Richards review: “Federico Jusid ‘s Tango Rhapsody is a playful concerto (…) that struck me as a vibrant, dynamically scored work with a Latin flavour, toying at times with jazz, Hollywood film scores and with a rhythmic interplay owing as much to Bartok and Stravinsky as to tango. Undeniably fun!”
Federico Jusid composed the original soundtrack for “Loving Pablo” with Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem, “Neruda” based on the political persecution of the poet and communist senator Pablo Neruda, and “Kidnap” with Halle Barry directed by Luis Prieto.
