Nosferatu2011

Saturday, October 15, 2011 - 8:00pm

This October Brendan Cooney takes his original score to the classic 1922 vampire film Nosferatu on the road. Cooney’s original score, played live by an all-star quintet, is heavy in gypsy and klezmer motifs, giving the score a distinctive old-fashioned Eastern European sound. It also makes wide use of dramatic horror-camp effects, avant-garde improvisatory vocabulary, and classical devices. Scored for clarinet, violin, accordion, piano and bass, it is an experience not to be missed.
