FLESH AND THE DEVIL! w/ Organ Score by Peter Krasinski

June 15 @ 8:00 PM - 10:30 PM

Enjoy the 1926 silver-screen-sizzler that established Greta Garbo as an iconic femme fatale- a film intense with emotion – swinging from youthful cheer and love to uninhibited lust, jealousy and wrath with a rousing live soundtrack performed on our historic Estey by award-winning organist Peter Krasinski!

The pre-code blockbuster that established Greta Garbo as an international superstar, FLESH AND THE DEVIL (Dir. Clarence Brown, 1926, 112 mins) is a swooning melodrama full of surprising ironies as two boyhood best friends (John Gilbert and Lars Hanson) get caught in a dangerous love triangle with a mesmerizing femme-fatale. John Gilbert was at the peak of his career when he played the film’s lead, and his electric chemistry with Garbo led to three more movies together as well as a passionate off-screen romance. The sensuality and emotional intensity of their love scenes (more documentary than fiction) helped to make the film a box-office hit with the public. The film’s cinematographer, Oscar-winner William H. Daniels, continued to work with Garbo as her principal lensman throughout the rest of her career.

PETER EDWIN KRASINSKI is broadly recognized as a motivating consultant for the pipe organ community, and as a conductor, organist, and music educator, whose imaginative and energetic performances elevate and inform diverse audiences. Well respected in both the secular and sacred genres of his field, he has taught the enchantment of music to both public and private institutions in the greater Boston area for many years. His Bach interpretations have been hailed in print as “sublimely spiritual.” and his improvisations have been critically acclaimed in the press as “stunning,” “seamless,” and “brilliant.” His silent film performances have been called “a great marriage of movie and music.” He consistently receives rave reviews about his “compositions in real time.” “Krasinski’s musicianship and command of the organ were matched by his intuition and keen sense of dramatic sensitivity.” “It was remarkable and seamless, and yes—no modern movie could out do it… It was as if Krasinski became one with the elements.”
