Charlie Chaplin's Legacy
Classical Music in Film
Combining clips from classic Chaplin films with live music, Charlie Chaplin’s Smile is violinist Philippe Quint’s tribute to Charlie Chaplin on his 130th birthday, tracing Chaplin’s relationship with 20th-century master composers and his own film scores. This cinematic program also features John Corigliano’s Red Violin Chaconne, Barber’s heartbreaking Adagio for Strings (Platoon), Carlos Gardel’s tango from Scent of a Woman and themes from John Williams’ poignant Schindler’s List and Ennio Moricone’s Cinema Paradiso.
