Composer David Cieri is best known for his work scoring the films of Ken Burns, starting with The National Parks and running through The Vietnam War; Burns has called Cieri "a master composer … sensitive to every nuance of image and sound." In his debut at The Greene Space, Cieri presents an audacious new work: a live score for Carl Th. Dreyer's 1928 silent film classic La Passion de Jeanne d'Arc, starring Renee Falconetti in an all-time great performance. Cieri's luminous score, performed by an ensemble of nine musicians, including the traditional Sardinian vocal quartet Tenores De Aterue, bolsters the film's core story — Joan of Arc's faith on trial in the face of torture — with music that is by turns visceral and transcendent. This is an album release show: An album with Cieri's score for the film, titled An Homage to Carl Th. Dreyer's 1928 The Passion of Joan of Arc, will be released by Ropeadope Records on the day of the performance.
