About the Concert
Sheer horror - with his silent film "Nosferatu", Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau brought the scary shocker par excellence to the screen over a hundred years ago. Accompanied by the music of Hans Erdmann. However, this music has disappeared - all the more reason to leave the musical accompaniment to the improvisational art of our palace organist Cameron Carpenter. He uses all 4109 pipes of the concert hall organ to paint the story of Count Orlok, a vampire from the Carpathians and his love for the beautiful Ellen in the most dramatic colours. Incidentally, the novel "Dracula" by Bram Stoker was the model, and the film was shot in Wismar, among other places, because the action takes place in a port city.
