JCDE presents The Black Pirate (1926) with live score!

About Jack Curtis Dubowsky Ensemble
JCDE sparks new life with original scores to classic silent films including Nosferatu, The Golem, The Phantom Carriage, Sunrise, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, and The Mark of Zorro, for which they released a soundtrack album ZORRO in 2017. A team of top players led by composer and conductor Jack Curtis Dubowsky, JCDE combines intricately composed material and structured improvisation. The ensemble has released four albums and has performed in local historic cinemas including The Art Theatre, The Frida Cinema, and noted venues nationwide including The Tank (NYC), Meridian Gallery (SF), AS220 (Providence, RI) and The Lilypad (Cambridge, MA).

Dubowskys score perfectly matched the German Expressionist cinematography and Gothic horror of NOSFERATU. This is not the heavy Hammer Films romanticism of the 1997 James
Bernard orchestration, or even the German post-Wagner romanticism of the original Hans Erdmann score (lost for many years), but a mixture of light romantic lyricism (each character has a memorable musically recurring theme), mixed with sparse 20th century experimental music and musical sound effects.

About The Black Pirate
Douglas Fairbanks stars as a swashbuckling aristocrat in disguise as an infamous pirate, fighting and pillaging. Released in 1926, the film is in remarkable two-strip
Technicolor, and features romance, stunts, and sword fighting. The film was added to the United States National Film Registry in 1993. A stunning showcase for
Fairbanks, The Black Pirate is regarded as one of the most important action adventure films ever made. The film has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
