Repertoire Tip „Film Music“
Early Films and their Soundtrack: A Renaissance
Many scores from the early years of cinema are lost. Unbroken, however, is the interest of composers in dealing with the works of pioneer filmmakers. Silent-film classics such as Le fil blanc de la cascade, Nosferatu and Dr. Mabuse have been given new musical settings by Misato Mochizuki, Michael Obst and José M. Sánchez-Verdú. Moreover, Martin Smolka and Friedhelm Döhl were inspired by the early avant-garde films Entr'acte and Le ballet mécanique.
Silent films and early Hollywood features screened with live music performances – either with the original soundtrack or newly composed music – have recently been enjoying an amazing renaissance at festivals and in concert houses.
