Richard Hills plays organ to Hitchcock's The Manxman
Friday, May 26, 2017 at 7:30 PM - Saturday, May 27, 2017 at 9:30 PM (IST)
Richard was named 'Organist of the Year' by the American Theatre Organ Society. He regularly broadcasts for Radio 3’s ‘Choral Evensong’ and Radio 2's 'Friday Night is Music Night' and from the BBC London Proms. His recent recordings received five-stars in Choir and Organ. This 1929 silent movie, directed by Alfred Hitchcock, was restored and remastered in 2007. It tells the dramatic story of a fisherman and a lawyer, childhood friends, who fall for the same woman.
This is a rare opportunity to see a silent Hitchcock film with live accompaniment by a master organist. After the film and an interval there will be a short screening of archive films.
