Description

Part of the Goethe-Institut 40th anniversary celebration of Los Angeles’ sister city partnership with Berlin, organist Christoph Bull performs a live score to Walter Ruttman’s influential silent documentary, Berlin: Die Sinfonie einer Großstadt (1927), an optimistic ode to the “new” Berlin of the late 1920s, filmed less than 20 years before the Nazi occupation. An enthralling visual symphony in five movements, this expressionistic, feature-length montage offers a kaleidoscopic view of a single day in the life of the bustling metropolis, from dawn to dusk. The evening begins with an all-German concert on Royce Hall’s magnificent pipe organ featuring works by Nicolaus Bruhns, Johann Sebastian Bach, Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, Johannes Brahms, N.J. Schneider and Christoph Bull.
