Bye, Matti – “Phantom Carriage, The” – [Rotor]

Cousin Mary   4/11/2018   CD, Soundtrack

Matti Bye composes “soundtracks” for silent movies.  The Phantom Carriage is a Swedish film from 1921 that concerns a Salvation Army slum sister and is considered by many to be a masterpiece.  The music is playful, lyrical, and reminds me of the cabaret works of Kurt Weill and the piano works of Erik Satie.  Very nicely played on piano, strings, percussion, brass and harp.  Really lovely, recommended!!
