Programme Note

100 years after the silent film's release, Jeff Beal composed a new soundtrack for live performances to accompany The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, the famous German expressionist horror film directed by Robert Wiene and written by Hans Janowitz and Carl Mayer. The German National Youth Jazz Orchestra gave the premiere in August 2021 as part of the nationwide 2021 Jewish Life in Germany festival.
