Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans (1927)
Director – F W Murnau
Elizabeth-Jane Baldry – Harp

One of the most revered films of all time, a stunning masterpiece and a pinnacle of craft which belies the resources of the time, Sunrise won the Academy Award for Unique & Artistic Picture at the very first Academy Awards in 1929.

£10, Under 18s - £5

The only silent movie harpist in the world, performing live accompaniment to cinema screenings of early film, Elizabeth-Jane’s compositions have been used by ITV, BBC and Irish, Japanese, Danish and Canadian film, radio and television.

“Elizabeth-Jane conjured 95 minutes of riveting musical commentary on the story, with sounds ranging from startling metallic eruptions at moments of shock plot developments, through foot-tapping jazz-age tunes in the dance-hall sequence, to voluptuous pastoral romances and
affecting melodies drawing us into deeper empathy with the characters’ emotional troubles.”
