“Marcos Fernandez’s music never ceases to be colourful and arresting” – THE MALTA INDEPENDENT
Piano Underscore features original music written and performed by Marcos Fernandez. Originally from Barcelona, where he studied piano, Marcos moved to Glasgow and then London, to pursue his composition studies. Nowadays, his experienced in the music industry created a very eclectic profile as a performer, composer and teacher.
Twelve years offering classical recitals, cocktail piano sessions in the most sophisticated venues of London, and scoring for films as well as teaching piano, culminated in Piano Underscore; a concept that merges the proficiency of the classical piano technique and the intimacy of a piano cocktail session with the desire to promote the instrument to a wider audience through the evocative and descriptive idiom of film music.
