Play Me a Movie: Piano Music to Accompany Silent Movie Scenes

Play Me a Movie: Piano Music to Accompany Silent Movie Scenes

How does a storm at sea sound? A villain’s entrance? Tender, sentimental love? The silent-movie pianists at neighborhood theaters matched music to the action on the screen—sometimes without even having previewed the film. Abraham Lass fondly remembers and performs the repertoire he composed in the 1920s.
