A film music highlight

On January 27th 2018, the Konzerthaus Berlin was transformed into a genuine cinema hall. On screen was the Oscar-winning tragic comedy "The Artist". The film score however, was not canned as usual, but played live by the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin. The musical reins were held by film music afficionado Frank Strobel. Ludovic Bource, the composer of the score, was present himself and played piano and celesta.

"The Artist" is a feature film by French director Michel Hazanavicius from the year 2011. This homage to the old Hollywood garnered five Oscars in total. The powerful combination of emotional imagery and live music made for a unique evening and delighted movie buffs and music lovers alike.

BIG cinema was responsible for the technical side of the event and managed the screening of the movie in a skilful manner. The crystal clear images were provided by a Christie CP4230 projector. 1 The projector was housed in a sound proof booth to spare the audience any unwanted noise interference. The image was projected onto an AV Stumpfl projection screen  1  with a size of 8 by 6 metres. Because of that even the audience in the back rows was able to fully enjoy the experience.
