Magnificent. That's what truly great motion picture music should sound like.

HEY! I know how double posts happen, now. Huh. I clicked the post button, and nothing happened. Lot's of online buttons are poorly responsive, so I waited, then clicked it again. It always mystified me how those got generated.

Anyway so yeah, this was one.

Not everybody wants to get involved with data-krakens like Facebook.
So could anyone maybe quickly report what is said there ? Thanks.

OH MY GOD I so very much wish that all of you that I know and have had the opportunity to love all these years were there for the premiere performance of Nosferatu in Zürich back in February!

Outside of the birth of my kids, this was a very very bright moment in my life, which would have been heaven on Earth if I could have been able to share it with all of you.

I was absolutely shocked at the beyond magnificent performance that the Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich managed to pull off in a very short period of time under the excellent guidance of conductor Frank Strobel.

The team that made this happen - I’m indebted to for eternity. It started with the great Paul Talkington, (fixer, contractor, film music aficionado extraordinaire). It was he who went out of his way to make this happen because of his never-ending belief in my music.

To the rest of the team involved, including Fernando and Ekkehard, having the opportunity to be asked to do this means that I’m bound to them for life.

And to top it off…my kids were there - Molly & Gil!!!

We’re working on getting this released on CD & perhaps Blu-ray/DVD. It’s 93 minutes of nearly continuous music so you’re gonna have to buckle up for safety!!

Thanks everybody,

Love,
Chris

He, he. Love Young's trademark enthusiasm. Hope to hear a recording of this eventually.

If he needs a kickstarter, I'm sure many of us would put in for it. Based on the clips, it sounds fantastic.

Great news that they are working on a CD and a blu-ray/DVD. And if you liked the samples just let me assure you in Al Jolson's immortal words: "You ain't heard nothing yet."

I suggested a Kickstarter campaign to Chris after the premiere as a possible way of financing a release. It was something he wasn't really aware of. But I would be more than willing to contribute. This may well be his magnum opus.

Btw, selection from NOSFERATU will be performed in about 2 weeks during the opening concert of PRAGUE COMPOSER SUMMIT 2023!

Could you describe the music a little, maybe compare it with other works by Young? The few and short excerpts reminded me a bit of "Drag me to Hell" and "Hellraiser". Is there a concise theme? How did Chris set the quieter passages of the film to music? Often his music for horror movies is also beautiful, see "Flowers in the Attic" or "Tale of two Sisters"...

Here you can hear a 10 minutes Suite performed in Prague...

Thanks for sharing this - I love it! Even though it doesn't resonate much with my memories of the film - which I know pretty well and admire a lot.

But I don't care or mind at all. One of the cool things about silent movies is the ability to add different scores and create different effects.

I sure hope we will get a recording - and i'd happily support a crowdfunding opportunity, though that sounds like a will-o-the-wisp for now.

Anybody got an update if Chris is releasing anticipated score? Last info was a possible CD/DVD/BLU-RAY but all seems to have gone quiet....

No new update on this, still trying. Lots of moving parts with this. If Chris and his team (myself included) can get this out, we'll be posting here first rest assured! smile

I think a Kickstarter would be wildly successful. I am sure lots of us would put in for it.

Thanks for the update, dmd!

I would also love to contribute to a crowdfunding effort if that would help. (Which I've said before, I know.)

Any thing to, um, resurrect this!

It would be a pity if only those who attended the two concerts in Zurich ever got to hear the entire work. Chris has certainly put a lot of time into this project and will hopefully make sure that Nosferatu gets a release as well. The suite recorded in Prague is stunning. Can't wait to hear the full score...
