BIG FILM: Battleship Potemkin will be performed by the Stattsorchester Braunschweig to open the Braunschweig International Filmfest and Bielefeld Silent film festival in November!

I'm very proud to announce that it is now confirmed that I will be conducting the Stattsorchester Braunschweig my 2005 composed score to the definitive version of Sergei Eisenstein's silent film masterpiece Battleship Potemkin (1925) at the Murnau Film and Musikfest 2018 and at the opening of the Braunschweig International Film Festival 2018 on 28th Oct. and 5th Nov. respectively. The score, written for large orchestra and quadrophonic electronic tonband, was originally composed and premiered for the Kulturamt Köln and Hochschule für Musik in 2005 to the first fully restored and uncensored version of this film, and it received critical acclaim for its technique, complexity and intensity. I'm thrilled to perform it once again - this time at the helm of this great orchestra (founded in 1587!) that will be specially put together for this massive project!
