On 12, 13 and 14 in June, at 20h30, the IMS Paulista Cinema, in partnership with the Goethe-Institut, presents the film "Nosferatu" by Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau, with original and integral live track.
IMS presents FW Murnau's silent movie classic "Nosferatu - A Sinfonia de Horror" with full original soundtrack played live for the first time in Brazil. The film, an unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker's novel Dracula, tells the story of a Carpathian vampire who falls in love with the young Ellen, bringing terror to the city.
Shot in 1922, it counts on a song still under strong influence of German romanticism, mainly of Richard Wagner. The composer created 10 great themes that are used as Leitmotivs: small stretches that are repeated by the work representing characters, places or even emotions. As the original soundtrack, composed by Hans Erdmann, was dismembered by copyright issues, Erdmann released a compilation of these themes in 1926, calling the work Fantastic Suite-Romantic, which served as the basis for the arrangements made by the pianist Hans Brandner and by Regent Marcelo Falcão for the Camerata Tonspur.
