Stephen Horne will be returning to the Gulbenkian Cinema for the second year to accompany some of the silent era’s greatest comedy shorts. The evening will display the works of silent film icons; Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd and more.
This will be a magical evening of cinema you will not want to miss!
Stephen Horne has long been considered one of the leading silent film accompanists. Based at London’s BFI Southbank, but playing at all the major UK venues such as the Barbican Centre and the Imperial War Museum, he has recorded music for DVD releases, BBC TV screenings and museum installations of silent films. Although principally a pianist, he often incorporates flute, accordion and keyboards into his performances, sometimes simultaneously. Visit his website for more.
- “It is very rare to hear a score for a silent film that you think of as definitive, but that really felt like the case… anything else will simply be redundant.” Robin Baker, Head Curator, BFI National Archive.
- “The film itself is powerful, but with Stephen Horne’s accompaniment it achieved the sublime.” Rob Byrne, President of the San Francisco Silent Film Festival.
