Hesperus: The Mark of Zorro

The Mark of Zorro 1920 silent film accompanied by early music from Old and New Spain Go to the movies with Early Music in Columbus as we present "The Mark of Zorro," the 1920 silent film starring screen-legend Douglas Fairbanks, accompanied by the early music group Hesperus! Silent films were never totally silent; they were seen with a variety of accompaniments. Some theaters rented the original Hollywood score composed for the picture and hired an orchestra or arranged it for a small group of musicians. If that were too expensive, a few musicians would find their own music to suit. Other theaters had an organist or pianist improvise a soundtrack or play popular music of the day. Hesperus does something a bit different; the group accompanies silent films with music that has a connection to the action on the screen. For "The Mark of Zorro," Hesperus plays music from Old and New Spain - Spanish and Native American music from the 16th-18th centuries, giving audiences a real sense of place and time!
