“In 1926, German director Fritz Lang stunned international audiences with his masterpiece Metropolis … a chilling art-deco fantasia with cinematography by Karl Freud that anticipated film noir and influenced a generation of filmmakers.” Using the vast tonal resources of Northop’s historic Aeolian-Skinner Opus 892 pipe organ, “Philadelphia organ virtuoso Peter Richard Conte interprets the music with a driving expressionist approach ala Lang” (CultureVulture) in a fully improvised performance that promises a “mixture of levity and technical brilliance” (The Birmingham News).
