Carl Davis returns to Luxembourg for his annul foray into live cinema with the OPL at the invitation of the Cinémathèque.

British composer and conductor Carl Davis has been coming to Luxembourg every year since 1987, when he was invited to perform at the 10th anniversary celebrations of the Cinémathèque.
Davis is renowned for his film scores to silent classics–most notably for Abel Gance’s 1927 epic Napoléon, which was restored and expanded with Davis’ music for cinematic release.
The film he has chosen for this performance with the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg is D.W. Griffiths’ French revolution epic Orphans Of The Storm.
The film is “an implausible tale” of sisters Henriette and Louise (photo) enduring a series of tribulations designed to tug at the heartstrings says Martin Hunt of the Edinburgh University Film Society.
The sisters are cruelly separated and while Louise, who is blind, is, raised by thieves, Henriette is a sweet innocent plundered by lecherous aristocrats. Griffiths’ favourite actress, silent icon Lillian Gish, plays Henrietta and her sister Dorothy plays Louise.
A family edition matinée of short films suitable for all ages takes place on Saturday afternoon, March 22. The programme this time is a Charlie Chaplin special featuring The Pawnshop and The Cure, shown to mark the 100th anniversary of the comic genius’s creation of his iconic tramp character.
