Trio Bravo+'s soundtrack graces Sergei Eisenstein's monumental silent film with new revolutionary honours, 75 years after its creation. The music turns the cinematic masterpiece into a multimedia work of art and puts the audience on an emotional roller coaster ride.
There's a mutiny on the Russian battle ship "Potemkin", when the hungry sailors are served spoiled meat. When the people of Odessa, where the "Potemkin" is anchored, show their solidarity with the insurgents, they are violently attacked by the czarist troops.
Trio Bravo places itself against the monumental pictures both rapidly and strongly, but also quietly, poetically and melancholically. The highly dramatic music is not only interpretation and illustration to the movie; the composition itself gains artistic authorization.
