In the 1920s America fell in love with the movies; Hollywood’s first stars were born on the silver screens of silent films. Although silent in name, the films of the 1920s were shown in picture palaces where the images sprang to life through the music performed live. Award-winning artists Nick Russoniello and the Golden Age Quartet reimagine the magic of the picture palace, performing on 1920s instruments.
This concert features a screening of Charlie Chaplin’s The Immigrant with a sparkling new musical score and the story of early cinema unfolds through a series of works by Camille Saint- Saëns, Rudy Wiedoeft and Charlie Chaplin.
Artists: Nick Russoniello (saxophones), Daniel Rojas (piano), Anthea Cottee (Cello), Julia Russoniello (violin).
Featured non-Australian music: Sax O Phun (Wiedoeft), Assassinat Du Guiss (Saint Saens)
