This week on Film Score Focus we're listening to silents! No, not silence...Silents! As in the music from silent films. What makes this show so special is that all of the music has been performed live right here in the great state of Texas. The silent film era is a passion of mine and it's fantastic to see so many live concerts springing up devoted to silent film score performances.
Also, you may be interested to hear that there is an upcoming concert on January 16 and 17 where four members of the Austin Classical Guitar Society will accompany cello soloist Bion Tsang in a new score composed by Joe Williams for Alfred Hitchcock's silent masterpiece, THE LODGER (1927). Tickets are available here... http://drafthouse.com/movies/44824
Join me Friday night at 9:00PM or Saturday evening at 5:00PM right here on 89.5 KMFA. You can also listen live via the internet at www.kmfa.org.
Here's the lineup for FSF-456 "The Sounds of Silents II"
