An unforgettable evening of early cinema with live piano, taking you back to an era when film soundtracks were orchestrated in front of spectators by live musicians.
Classic short films will be shown 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.
