|An unforgettable evening of early cinema with internationally acclaimed silent film pianist Stephen Horne.
Prepare to be transported back to an era when film soundtracks were orchestrated in front of spectators by live musicians.
The evening will showcase classic short films with live piano accompaniment by Stephen Horne, one of the leading silent film accompanists, resident pianist for the BFI and regular at Cannes Film Festival. Although principally a pianist, he often incorporates other instruments into his performances, sometimes simultaneously.
