»Roll the film and clear the stage« for award-winning silent films and ingenious live music: When Count Orlok in Murnau's 100-year-old Dracula adaptation gives you goosebumps – »Nosferatu« is an early representative of the horror genre – Michael Wollny and the members of the Norwegian Wind Ensemble increase the tension with jazz. Philippe Schoeller's music for chamber orchestra to Dupont's »Das Alte Gesetz« (»The Ancient Law«) sensitively traces the stony path of a gifted rabbi's son from the shtetl to Vienna's Burgtheater. Fritz Lang's monumental science fiction film »Metropolis« – part of the UNESCO World Documentary Heritage – inspires the organist Thierry Escaich with its expressionist imagery to music à la »Back to the Future«. And Timothy Brock not only set the comedy »The General« to music for large orchestra, he also stands at the conductor's podium of the RSO Vienna when Buster Keaton rescues a locomotive from being hijacked by cunning spies.
