Nosferatu & BOS

A classic terror film ... sounding more beautiful and terrifying than ever

29 march 2017

Live music in the screening of the classic horror film  ‘Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror’ (1922), by W.F. Murnau, which is darker and more terrifying than ever thanks to the BOS- Bilbao Symphonic Orchestra performance of the music composed by José M. Sánchez Verdú in 2003.

This film masterpiece was the result of the wish expressed by fans of occultism, whose symbols appear in practically all of its sequences. The work underwent a destructive process as a result of a court order that called for the negatives and all of the existing copies to be burnt but which fortunately never came about.

José María Sánchez Verdú turned the film into a magnificent musical work for orchestra and female voices, with a score that enhances and amplifies the film’s repetitions, psychological situations, rhythm and sequence changes. Its performance promises emotion and intensity.
