Zorada Temmingh

St John’s Churchbutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

Improvised organ accompaniment to the 1923 silent film of The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

Zorada Temmingh, one of South Africa’s foremost organists, provides her innovative soundtrack improvisation to a showing of the 1923 silent film of The Hunchback of Notre Dame, a jewel of the silent movie era.

Zorada creates an original leitmotiv for each character, developing and intertwining the themes as the characters appear in different situations – in a sense the music becomes a commentator of the film. The ranges of tone, colour, pitch and volume of the organ is stretched to its limits to portray the gripping emotion in the film.
