The sun has risen and so have the strings! That’s because Edurne, Spain’s Eurovision 2015 singer, has today released the symphonic version of her song “Amanecer”. Recorded with RTVE’s Symphony Orchestra and the RTVE Choir, this version helps bring out the spiritual quality of Edurne’s voice, demonstrating once again that she is much more than a pop star. She seems to draw strength from the booming timpani and horns, and the live choral backing adds a whole other layer of WOW. This rendering makes the most of the breaks and pauses in the song, and it’s in those moments that the live instrumentation is most noticeable. The tempo appears to have been slowed, as this version lasts 3:22 as opposed to three minutes. Overall it’s much more cinematic than the pop version. We could so hear this playing in an epic Spanish film where a woman morphs into a tiger when she sees a hot and tempting man. (Oh wait).

Edurne and RTVE have kept tight-lipped about what version of “Amanecer” we’ll hear in Vienna, but we have the feeling the pop version will work a bit better.  What do you think?

something like that happened with Ukraine last year, check the performance in Copenhagen and the song that was in the ESC album, somewhat different.

I would prefer a combination from Edurne’s symphonic/ pop version..

The entry of Espana will get a lift up and get boosted a lot by the actual performance…
I put Spain on this category of countries that the factor of performance will play big main role on the overall impression 4 the whole entry..
Like it gonna happen with Sweden too..

With a great performance Edurne not only can hit the top10 but to finish on a really high place…
I can expect a spectacular performance by Spain…
That hot babe Giovani Di Bella will gonna accompany Edurne on stage & it will be really eye candy to see him dancing…He will definitely give much boost to the overall performance with his presense.. <3 🙂
Spain is favorite 4 a great place & at least i prefer Edurne to win over Guy Sebastian that is hyped now as a hot favorite to wn…His song is just nah for me..

The best thing about this whole performance is the conductor’s hair! 😉 Seriously, the audio mix is just terrible. The orchestra is put way too flat and quiet, while the ever so boring and repetitive vocal part of the songs are too loud. Edurne has a great voice, but this song… sorry, she would deserve a million times better than this! No chance of winning or even top 5 at all. Also, to the directors of TVE: Trying to create a hype around your song inside your country won’t help it much – maybe you should consider making it more… Read more »

Prefer the pop video better. This is nice, but hardly as dramatic and passionate as the original…also this drags a bit. I’m sure they will use the original!

Beautiful and powerful version, but I still prefer the original. I hope to see Edurne making the top 5 in Vienna!

My dream has always been to see my country win so I can enjoy hosting the show in Barcelona or Madrid, I really want Edurne to slay it. Go Edurne! We can always try to send Brequette again tho. <3

I love it, but I would have loved it even more if Edurne had that first primal line a capella after the orchestra paused, then have them build up again like the original—that would have upped the epic factor majorly!

Carcassonne: Yo no hablo español, simian or otherwise.

Mono = Single channel audio. As opposed to stereo (two channel audio), which is the way they’ve been recording orchestras since the 1950s.

It’s the #1 reason the audio on this video sounds so flat and tinny. Someone at RTVE must have screwed up the encoding, because there’s no way they’d be silly enough to mix a symphony performance in mono.

There’s nothing wrong with this performance. Hopefully they’ll fix it.

Well, this proves two things: (1) She IS apparently capable of singing it well, in what amounts to a studio environment anyway. (Although it wouldn’t be that hard to undetectably autotune her after-the-fact in this scenario. Just sayin’.) (2) RTVE is NOT capable of getting decent audio onto a web video. (Mono audio with a symphony orchestra? Oh COME ON, guys.) I don’t think the full symphony and choir arrangement really fits the song though. It’s nice, she’s nice, but it’s sort of like they’re performing simultaneously rather than together. And it’s too repetitive to give the orchestra that much… Read more »

Ok, she’s nailing it now. It’s true this version is a little slowlier and maybe a little easier to sing, but those pitching imperfections from her first performance on spanish TV seem water under the bridge at this point. Way to go, girl!

sound mastering on this one is just a joke. Spaniards at their best? Don’t think so. I don’t know why but Spain and Portugal always struggle with sound and video quality? WHY?
