A screening of silent movie Love with a live orchestral accompanimentMade in 1927 by director Edmund Goulding, Love starred the most celebrated screen couple of the era: Greta Garbo and John Gilbert. The New York Times motion picture critic Mordaunt Hall described Greta Garbo, in this role, as "a blonde Mona Lisa" and wrote that she "outshines any other performance she has given to the screen".
For a very special screening of this peerless silent flick, The Philharmonia Orchestra provides a full live score to accompany the movie, featuring virtuoso violinist Vadim Repin and conducted by Frank Strobel. Renowned composer Aphrodite Raickopoulou has written a new score for this classic silent film, which is based on Tolstoy's novel Anna Karenina. The score was written especially for the Vadim Repin, whom Yehudi Menuhin (widely considered one of the best violinists of the 20th century) described as "the best violinist I have ever heard".
Take in the outstanding beauty of the Royal Festival Hall and catch some of the best romantic performances ever seen on screen accompanied by world-class music. Sounds like an unmissable one.
