SUN 14.6. | 20:30 | GALERIE | SILENT FILM WITH LIVE MUSIC | Murnau’s expressionist silent movie “Nosferatu” dating from 1922 was the first film version of Bram Stoker’s “Dracula”. Film critics view this work as a quantum leap in cinematic history.

On the basis of Hans Erdmann’s soundtrack only preserved in fragmentary form, the Internationale Händel-Festspiele Göttingen issued a commission this year for a new composition in cooperation with the Hochschule für Musik, Theater und Medien Hannover. The surprise performer on the cinema organ: Laurence Cummings, a renowned conductor and harpsichordist within the field of historical performance practice, who steers towards completely new horizons with this project.
