Pfeiffer presents classic ‘Nosferatu’

Wednesday, October 24, 2012 — On Oct. 25, Pfeiffer University’s Cultural Program presents Nosferatu, a 1922 silent, vampire-themed film, accompanied by live chamber music performed by the Mallarmé Chamber Players. The performance, which is free and open to the community, takes place in Henry Pfeiffer Chapel, 48380 U.S. 52 N., Misenheimer, at 8:30 p.m.

“Nosferatu,” which has been described as a “symphony of horrors,” is one of the original movies in the vampire genre.

Eric Schwartz’s music for the film directed by F.W. Murnau combines the spooky sounds of a horror film score; edgy, sophisticated unpredictability of contemporary chamber music;  and post-modern qualities of experimental theater.

Composed to be an active commentary of the action on screen, the score will be played as live accompaniment to the film with additional electronics by five musicians from the Mallarmé Chamber Players.

The Mallarmé Chamber Players is Durham-based ensemble of professional musicians.

The group distinguishes itself through innovative educational programs, commitment to creative collaboration with other organizations, and creation of significant new works such as “Nosferatu” in association with the composer, Eric Schwartz.
