Synopsis: Ermessenda of Carcassone, Countess of Barcelona, Girona, and Osona, was a woman who ruled for sixty years and did so above her son and despite her grandson. She ruled in a world of men, a remarkable fact in the XI century –although not extraordinary- and did so without hiding behind the shadow of her offspring, with whom she even fought in order to hold on to power.

Soundtrack

ABOUT THE MUSIC: The score features vintage piano, intimate and kooky ensemble moments, as well as soaring strings recorded in Budapest.

We also produced several covers for the soundtrack, from a blaring rockabilly rendition of Tainted Love to the world classic Perfidia (a key part of the story) performed for the credits by Maria Rodés.

ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE: The music was conducted by David Hernando, recorded with the Bratislava Symphony Orchestra, and mixed by Marc Blanes at BSO Superestudio, Barcelona.
