Program #3 takes its cue from the various ways that E4TT has explored these, ranging from inspirations for programming and commissions (“The Guernica Project,” commemorating Pablo Picasso’s iconic painting inspired by the bombing of Guernica, Spain, in 1937, and “The Film Noir Project”), to music inspired by or with images (“The Film Noir Project,” with images by Corinne Whitaker and Aleksandra Vrebalov) or film (Charlie Chaplin and “The Man in the Vault” in “Dracula Rising: Emigres & Exiles in Hollywood,” “The Film Noir Project” with cinematography by Emma Kazaryan) to dance—artistic movement (Kazaryan’s film & the Zazpiak Bat Dancers in “The Guerninica Project).

: 100th Year Anniversary of the John Barrymore feature film
Dates: August 13, 2020
Sponsor: Turner Classic Movies
Auditorium: Television
Contact: Alan Kryszak
  United States
Phone: 716-597-4335

Composer Al Kryszak is grateful for alternative venues to bring New Music to audiences during the unprecedented pandemic lockdown of live cultural events. His piano concerto score for the centennial of 1920 John Barrymore classic “Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde” airs on Turner Classic Movies this August 13th at 6 am. The marathon (79 minute) concerto for piano premiered live at the Film Society of Lincoln Center in 2004, featuring acclaimed new music virtuoso Anthony de Mare. The horror classic premiered in the same city, 100 years ago, produced by Famous Players-Lasky Corp. The score reflects an era of leitmotifs & visual synergy by expanding Millicent’s (Martha Mansfield) piano parlor scenes into a plaintive waltz intended for her ill-fated chemistry boyfriend Dr. Jekyll (John Barrymore). The new film score came about through the support of Lincoln Center Film’s Sayre Maxfield, film preservationist Sandra Birnhak & TCM curator Charles Tabesh.
