Dazzle Presents – Artist live stream on Dazzle’s YouTube Channel video will be available to watch on Friday, December 18 at 8pm.
The Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra is a five piece chamber ensemble that revives the repertoire of silent film orchestras. Using historic libraries of music, and selecting and fitting a piece of music for each scene in the film, Mont Alto compiles vibrant and emotional scores using the original techniques of silent film orchestras.
Mont Alto collects original compositions and orchestrations from the turn of the century through 1930 for its tea dance series, silent film presentations, and concerts. Rodney Sauer also presents concert-lectures on photoplay music history and practice.
