“Suddenly, there was music. Rapturous! It came from the vestibule of the White Hart corner pub. (...) It was here that I first discovered music, or where I first learned its rare beauty, a beauty that has gladdened and haunted me from that moment…“ said Charlie Chaplin once.
We all know Charlie Chaplin as a great comedian, director, writer and producer. Still, not everyone is aware of his composing talents and the fact that he created most of the music for his films by himself.
Philippe Quint discovered and recorded thirteen original arrangements of Chaplin's songs. Then he developed their concept, transforming them into an almost vaudeville form. Chaplin's music is also intertwined with the stories of the composer's friendship with Debussy, Stravinsky, Rachmaninoff and Gershwin.
Quint is an award-winning violinist currently touring from the Gewandhaus in Leipzig to Carnegie Hall in New York. He plays the 1708 "Ruby" violin by Antonio Stradivari.
