BATTLESHIP POTEMKIN in London, UK

12.octubre.2017

Royal Festival Hall, London, 7:30 p.m.

Performed by the Philharmonia Orchestra under the baton of Vladimir Ashkenazy.

With music by Dmitri Shostakovich. 

Sergej Eisenstein’s world famous film BATTLESHIP POTEMPKIN commemorates the mutiny on the Tsar’s battleship at Odessa in 1905. At the age of 28 the talented Eisenstein established his famous technique of creating a composite picture with this film. With a sense for rhythm and dynamic, this film is known as a very demanding and vivid work. Controversially, it takes viewers along a path of emotion as an effort to create political awareness.

Although Shostakovich never wrote a single note for Eisenstein, Frank Strobel brought together both masters by combining five Shostakovich symphonies (nos. 4, 5, 8, 10 and 11) into a new score for BATTLESHIP POTEMKIN, a breathtaking musical and visual experience that has now become a classic.
