The Cabinet of Dr Caligari

 

D 1919
D: Robert Wiene

 

The famous german expressionist silent movie.

 

The music - while being a classical silent score for piano solo - explores jazz harmonies as well as moderately modern writing. In difference to the usual tradition of the time of the movie, the music is not "patchworked" from already existing material but newly composed, with recurring themes for each of the main characters.

Excerpts from the score:
