As part of our Sound and Silents Season coming up in a couple of weeks classical Brit Award winning cellist Natalie Clein, Mercury Award nominated jazz pianist Zoe Rahman and the only British string quartet of its generation dedicated exclusively to contemporary and experimental music, The Elysian Quartet will perform their specially commissioned live accompaniments to four silent films featuring icons such as Greta Garbo and Gloria Swanson.
From sultry femme fatale filled drama to slapstick romanic comedy, the films The Temptress, I Don’t Want to Be A Man! and My Best Girl are brought to life by these accomplished musicians. To give you a taste of their sound we have selected some of our favourite videos of them performing live from trusty Youtube.
