Dear friends of the Musicians of Europe,
After the 2nd symphony of Brahms and Fauré's Requiem, European musicians change their style and period.
The silent cinema with musical accompaniment had its hour of glory until the 1920s. Charlie Chaplin with his famous Charlot was a worldwide success.
With the arrival of the talking film, the "mute" gradually lost its notoriety. But fashion effects are ephemeral; the beauty remains. Music speaks to the heart as well or better than the Word.
30 musicians from Europe under the direction of their conductor Jean-Marie CURTI accompany the projection of two silent films of Charlie Chaplin of 1916, for a Ciné-Concert:
"The Count" on music by Frédéric Bara: Lunch at Tiffany's, Annie millionaire one evening, The birds, Waltz of Ragueneau
and "The Vagabond" on Emmanuel Chabrier's music chosen by Frédéric Bara: Excerpts from L'étoile, Bourréefantastique, Idylle, Uneéducation missed, Ouverture de Gwendoline, Happy walk, The king in spite of himself.
This Cine-Concert will be given on:
- Sunday, March 24 at 4 pm at the Saint-André Institute of Cernay (68)
- Sunday, April 7 at 6 pm at the Samoëns' Bois-aux-Dames (74)
Projection on big screen.
The show lasts about one hour and will be accompanied by comments.
Free entrance with tray.
We hope to see you, in Alsace or Haute-Savoie. Let yourself be carried away by the poetry of the Ciné-Concert.
