Nosferatu - Eine Symphonie des Grauens
Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau (Germany 1922)
Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau's "Nosferatu - A Symphony of Horror" is one of the most haunting films in cinema history. Groundbreaking at the time, it has lost none of its fascination to this day.
To mark the 100th anniversary of the Berlin premiered on March 4, 1922, ZDF/ARTE commissioned composer Olav Lervik (*1982 in Strasbourg) to write a new score inspired by the original themes from Hans Erdmann.
