Battleship Potemkin: In Concert with the Minnesota Orchestra

At a Glance

Beethoven’s cry for universal community in his Ninth Symphony has echoed throughout history. One hundred years after his death, a remarkable silent film was created in the former Soviet Union, filled with sacrifice, rebellion for a greater cause, and the responsibilities of citizenship. We'll screen the film as the Orchestra performs an extravaganza of famous moments from some of the most popular orchestral works of all time, seamlessly arranged to form a new score produced by Nathan Farrington and Sebastian Chang.

Artists

  • Minnesota Orchestra
  • Sarah Hicks, conductor
  • Nathan Farrington and Sebastian Chang, score producers

Did You Know?

  • While this groundbreaking film initially had its own newly-composed score—written by film composer Edmund Meisel—it has no definitive score. Sergei Eisenstein, the film’s director, envisioned music for the film to be rewritten every 20 years to retain relevance to future generations.
  • This new version of Battleship Potemkin features a score that incorporates elements from such beloved pieces as Beethoven's Third Symphony, Mahler's First, Fifth and Sixth Symphonies, and Holst's The Planets.
  • In his quest to manipulate our emotions, and promote Soviet Russia, Eisenstein invented some of the most important techniques in film that still used every day in our TV shows and movies, including the concept of montage.
  • The film’s impact was monumental both inside and outside the Soviet Union, and due to its subject matter it was banned in several countries—including the United Kingdom until 1954.
