During the height of the silent film era, music played an integral role in the realization of cinematic drama. In this special Encounter, the enterprising pianist Stephen Prutsman will return to Music@Menlo to present original compositions written specifically for two iconic silent films: Buster Keaton’s Sherlock Jr. and Charlie Chaplin’s classic film One A.M. The Encounter will include a screening of the films accompanied by live music performed by Prutsman, the Escher String Quartet, and clarinetist Jose Franch-Ballester.
