Germany / Subtitled / 1922 / 95 mins
A masterpiece of early horror cinema, recently restored, Nosferatu still has the power to send chills down the spine of cinemagoers 96 years after its creation. Now renowned Cork composers Irene and Linda Buckley present the film with a new score, never before performed in Ireland, utilising the majestic organ at Saint Fin Barre’s Cathedral, accompanied by viola, cello and electronics. The eerie modern classical score – comprising beautiful recurrent themes together with moments of chilling dark ambience and intense, ominous drone – is so complementary to Murnau’s foreboding imagery that you would think they had always been together.
Score commissioned for the Organ Reframed Festival at Union Chapel, London.
