Silent Movie Concert: Prapancha Pash - Throw of Dice

Silent movie India/D/GB 1929, Director: Franz Osten, 74 min, OmU
Concept and arrangement: Axel Hennies
Compositions: Ernst Bechert and Hans Schneidermann

Everything begins in the jungle with the disturbing sounds of a drive hunt for the Bengal tiger. In the magnificent royal palace there are dancers, fakirs, fire-eaters, poisonous snakes, dice games. The trombones lay out a soft carpet heaped with silk cushions and the three percussionists make the wedding party glitter with their percussion instruments. Warning signals from the longhorns are sent across the city. Thousands of lancers swirl up the dust of the military road, fueled by martial sounds of the low brass until the saxophones whisk us away into the reconciling evening sky. Bollywood at its best.
