Music and image

Music and image

Celebrating the juxtaposition of music and image, the Philharmonie presents screenings of cinema classics with live musical accompaniment (“ciné-concerts”) and experimental audiovisual projects.

Charlie Chaplin movies, Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, Carl Theodor Dreyer’s The Passion of Joan of Arc, Steven Spielberg’s Jaws and Tod Browning’s Dracula: ‘ciné-concerts’ are the opportunity to rediscover cinema classics on the big screen with live musical accompaniment.

The season offers numerous occasions to explore the connection between music and visual media, including the Qatsi trilogy by Philip Glass and Godfrey Reggio, the musical video born of a collaboration between Steve Reich and Gerhard Richter, and various children’s shows as well.
