Very nice exhibition Charlie Chaplin, the orchestra man at the Philharmonie de Paris

    • On the occasion of 130 years of the birth of Chaplin, the Philharmonic present a very lively, funny and fascinating exhibition on Chaplin's relationship with music.
    • The exhibition explores thehe musical dimension of Chaplin's silent moviesand the parallel is fascinating because Charlot was a great music lover.
    • The multiple reading levels  make this exhibition accessible to all audiences. It is a real success.
    • Musical instruments, scores, sound effects machines and cameras interact with Chaplin's greatest films. The film extracts are numerous, often very funny, and the music is always omnipresent.
    • The exhibition shows how much the sound environment is entirely part of Chaplin's power. He attached the greatest importance to the musical accompaniment of his films and From 1931 onwards, Chaplin exercised total control over his work, controlling the direction, writing and music of his films.
    • We discover the music-loving side of Chaplin, through archive images and posters: photos of the young Chaplin with his violin and cello, annotated scores of his films or film extracts where the Tramp plays the Violin.
