Charlie Chaplin’s Smile

Many know the legendary Charlie Chaplin as a great comedian and filmmaker but not so many are aware of his gifts as a very talented musicians and composer. Chaplin composed the soundtrack music to his hits “City Lights, “Modern Times”, “The Great Dictator”, “Monsieur Verdoux” and “Gold Rush. He even conducted the orchestra himself during recordings because he felt that this was an integral part of his artistry as a filmmaker.

Grammy Award nominee violinist Philippe Quint celebrates Charlie Chaplin’s extraordinary legacy, commemorating his compositional talents and his encounters with the great composers and personalities of the day. A multimedia performance experience with music from some of Chaplin’s most famous movies includes photographs, videoclips, stories and musical performances.
