Three Silent Film Evenings with Live Piano Scores by Composer Robert Bruce

Composer/pianist Robert Bruce performs his live original piano scores in three classic 1920s silent film programs. Among the ever-increasing number of musicians who currently perform live to classic silent films, Bruce is particularly noted for the quality of his presentations and the strength of his original music. He limits himself to working with films/programs (presently nine) he feels a strong artistic connection to, and that work "seamlessly" with his music.
