Enjoy a Halloween Scaaarrry Night at the Silent Movies with live music by world-reknowned pianist Stephen Prutsman and the Telegraph String Quartet. First we will screen the 1920 "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" and second a slapstick comedy.
The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari is a 1920 German classic silent horror film, directed by Robert Wiene and written by Hans Janowitz and Carl Mayer. Considered the quintessential work of German Expressionist cinema. It tells the story of an insane hypnotist (Werner Krauss) who uses a somnambulist (Conrad Veidt) to commit murders. The film features a dark and twisted visual style, with sharp-pointed forms, oblique and curving lines, structures and landscapes that lean and twist in unusual angles, and shadows and streaks of light painted directly onto the sets.
The music is composed and performed by award-winning, international touring pianist Stephen Prutsman with The Telegraph Quartet . Hailed as one of the most innovative musicians of his time, Stephen moves easily from classical to jazz to world music styles as a pianist, composer and conductor. He is a medal winner at the Tchaikovsky and Queen Elizabeth Piano Competitions, and received the Avery Fisher Career Grant. Since then Stephen has performed the classical concerto repertoire as soloist with many of the worlds leading orchestras.
With a commitment to a passionate approach to the standard chamber music repertoire as well as contemporary and non-standard repertoire, the Telegraph Quartet has been described as intensely urgent and poignantly resonant. Awarded the prestigious Grand Prize of the 2014 Fischoff Chamber Music Competition they have gone on to perform in concert halls, music festivals, and academic institutions across the US.
