Improvisations with silent film Battling Butler
Geerten Liefting, organ - Tivoli Vredenburg, Grote Zaal


Program Info:
In the early days of the silent film, the projectors would have rattled so loudly that it was just that it was nice to hear live music. The impressive film organ, with special sound effects, was the appropriate instrument for this. Geerten Liefting goes back to that tradition. The sound of the TivoliVredenburg organ fits wonderfully with the old films. With his improvisations, Liefting accompanies Buster Keaton in Battling Butler from 1926.
