Description

Piano Recital Series 2016-17

John Sweeney piano

Improvising to Silent Film showcases the artistry of silent film pianist John Sweeney. A regular at silent film festivals around the world, including the British Silent Film Festival and the Giornate del Cinema Muto in Pordenone, Italy, Sweeney has also brought many silent films to life on DVD.

Tonight he will accompany Silent But Active Women, a celebration of both pioneering women filmmakers and the New Woman on-screen. Including everything from comedy to paper-cut animation to impressionist shorts, this programme of silent films pays tribute to the early screen legacies of some extraordinary women.
