TITLE:  Commentary on Neumeyer's MTO 0.1 essay
REFERENCE: mto.93.0.1.neumeyer.art

I have one comment to offer about David's article in response to his request
for information about films which used the music of Schoenberg's Opus 34.
There was an Ojai Festival somewhere around the summer of 1980 at which Lukas
Foss conducted a program on the theme of music and cinema.  During his
performance of Opus 34, he had an excerpt from the original (silent) NOSFERATU
projected on a screen behind the orchestra.  Unfortunately, I do not have the
resources out here in Singapore to provide an accurate reconstruction of the
event;  but I shall supply what my memory can.  I am almost certain that Foss
conducted all three movements, without interruption, just letting the film run,
without changing shots for the different movements.  I also believe that the
portion of the film he used was the one in which we see the Count entering the
bedroom with the camera looking over his shoulder, allowing us to see that he
is not reflected in the mirror.  The also includes a few cuts to close-up shots
of his face.  That is the best I can recall without sitting down with my
videotape of the film.
