D.W. Griffith and Vivaldi
23 June 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

If the moving image is a progression of the novel and the play, then the silent film is also a progression of classical music because it relies on incidental music in order to advance the story. This three minute offering has a score that is equivalent to Vivaldi's 'Four Seasons'. It doesn't explain the classical piece in visual terms, but merely creates a vocabulary for classical music to have dialogue with moving imagery. Incidental music should enhance the experience of the viewer, and in this short film you begin the origins of that process taking place. I'm sure that Prokofiev, Elgar, Shostokovich and Grieg must have watched this piece and wondered if their music would be enriched in the Nickelodeons.
