Information

The Europäische FilmPhilharmonie is a concert and production company for film music. It was founded in 2000 by Frank Strobel and Beate Warkentien and is based in Berlin. Under the artistic direction of Frank Strobel, the company continuously researches original film music and new scores as well as restored film prints. The aim of this work is to anchor and establish film concerts as an artform.
 The core of the Europäische FilmPhilharmonie’s work is formed by film and film music concerts.
A film concert is a full-length live orchestral performance synchronised with the projection of a film. In addition to The Matrix and Metropolis, these include the popular Chaplin Classics (The Gold Rush, Modern Times, City Lights, The Circus), the German Classics (Der Rosenkavalier, Nosferatu – Eine Symphonie des Grauens, Die Nibelungen, The Adventures of Prince Achmed, etc.) and the Russian Classics (Battleship Potemkin, The New Babylon, The Last Days of St. Petersburg, Ivan the Terrible, Alexander Nevsky and others).
The film music concerts are purely symphonic concert performances with a wide variety of excerpts from film music, depending on the theme of the programme. In addition to the music, there is also a visual level with film clips and stills. Curated film music concert programmes include Master Directors and their Composers: Federico Fellini & Nino Rota, Cinematic Waterworks, The Cinema of Others, Chaplin in Concert – With a smile, Heroes and Villains, Early Sound Film Hits, From the Black Forest to Hollywood and many more.
 Since its foundation, the Europäische FilmPhilharmonie has also specialised in the field of film music production. It organises and supervises the recording of music for film productions. Depending on the project, it provides the orchestra, choir, the conductor, the orchestra material, the recording venue, the recording equipment and the sound engineer. Recent film music productions include Das Wunder von Bern and Die Päpstin with music by Marcel Barsotti, Böseckendorf with music by Jörg Rausch, Empire of Silver with music by Cong Su, Han Li and Seikou Nagaoka and  Buddenbrooks with music by Hans-Peter Ströer.
