Prepare to be transported back to an era when film soundtracks were orchestrated in front of spectators by live musicians. This is an unforgettable evening of early cinema with internationally acclaimed silent film pianist Stephen Horne.
The evening will showcase classic short films with live piano accompaniment by Stephen Horne, one of the leading silent film accompanists, resident pianist for the BFI and regular at Cannes Film Festival. Although principally a pianist, he often incorporates other instruments into his performances, sometimes simultaneously.
The programme includes: The High Sign (Buster Keaton), Le rêve des Marmitons (Segundo De Chomon), Now you tell One (Charley Bowers), L’écrin du Radjah (Gaston Velle) and The Immigrant (Charlie Chaplin).
The evening will conclude with a Q&A where Stephen Horne will answer questions and chat to Simon Tyler of Creekside Vinyl.
