FAUST CINE-CONCERT

Accompanied live by JEAN-FRANÇOIS ZYGEL, a master of improvisation

One of the world’s best musicians working with silent cinema comes to Cluj-Napoca on Sunday, May 31st, at 7 PM, at the Students’ Culture House: A master of improvisation, Jean-François Zygel will accompany live F.W.Murnau’s 1926 masterpiece Faust (1926). “At TIFF I will accompany the incredible film made by the genius Murnau for the 12th time. Shadow and light, tears and lightning, a terrifying fight between good and evil, chaos and revelations, innocence and perdition — the expressive force and intensity of the imagery will overwhelm everyone, I am sure, as it has every time I accompanied this film,” said Zygel.

A singular figure among musicians, pianist and composer Zygel founded the piano improvisations classes at the Conservatoire de Paris and has worked to popularize classical music on humor and passion-filled radio and TV shows across France. Zygel has collaborated with major figures such as Michel Portal, Ibrahim Maalouf, Bobby McFerrin, Antoine Hervé, or Sly Johnson. His most recent album, L'Alchimiste, was released by Sony. At TIFF Zygel will also conduct a masterclass on June 1st (details to be announced soon). The ciné-concert is organized in partnership with the French Institute.
