Program Info:
Timothy Brock: Music for "The General" (-2005)
Director: Buster Keaton, Clyde Bruckman, USA 1926

At the height of Buster Keaton's career, his film "The General" was created. As one of the most expensive comedies of the silent film era, it did not appeal to the audience of origin, only after its rediscovery in the 1950s did its reception change fundamentally and was henceforth celebrated as Keaton's masterpiece. As an ironic commentary on the historic event of a rail robbery during the American Civil War, the rivalry between the northern and southern states is depicted in a wild chase. Over the years, he made several settings for "The General". The performance will be that of Timothy Brock from 2005, with the composer himself standing on the podium.
