Go to the movies with Early Music in Columbus as we present “The Mark of Zorro,” the 1920 silent film starring screen-legend Douglas Fairbanks, accompanied by the early music group Hesperus! Silent films were never totally silent; they were seen with a variety of accompaniments. Some theaters rented the original Hollywood score composed for the picture and hired an orchestra or arranged it for a small group of musicians. If that were too expensive, a few musicians would find their own music to suit. Other theaters had an organist or pianist improvise a soundtrack or play popular music of the day. Hesperus does something a bit different; the group accompanies silent films with music that has a connection to the action on the screen. For “The Mark of Zorro,” Hesperus plays music from Old and New Spain – Spanish and Native American music from the 16th-18th centuries, giving audiences a real sense of place and time! “A trademark blend of expertise and playfulness.” – Washington Post
