With live orchestral score composed by Neil Brand and performed by Covent Garden Sinfonia
A landmark thriller which Hitchcock himself considered his first real film, The Lodger effectively launched the career of the “Master of Suspense”. On the 90th anniversary of the film’s release, The Lodger is presented with a brand-new score composed by Neil Brand and performed live by the 12-piece Covent Garden Sinfonia conducted by Ben Palmer.
Neil Brand is a world-renowned silent film accompanist and composer. He also broadcasts regularly for the BBC – his three part series on musical theatre, The Sound of the Musicals, recently concluded on BBC4. Covent Garden Sinfonia (formerly the Orchestra of St Paul’s) is one of the UK’s foremost orchestras specialising in the performance of music live to film. Their recent screenings include Psycho, Casablanca, Charlie Chaplin’s The Gold Rush, The Cure, Easy Street and The Immigrant, Peter the Wolf and The Snowman.
Starring: Ivor Novello, June, Marie Ault, Michael Keen
Produced in: UK, 1926
Running time: 90 mins
