THE LITTLE TRAMP
Genre: Live Music
A fascinating and spirited musical celebration of Charlie Chaplin and Raj Kapoor, two of the most incredible icons of cinema.
Chaplin’s magic brought joy to a new world during the war. Kapoor modelled his screen image on Chaplin’s Little Tramp to restore the fractured friendships post India’s independence. This dazzling combination of comic and tragic promises a rollercoaster journey with superb players from Charnwood Orchestra.
Devesh Sodha’s masterpiece compositions are perfectly placed to create a compelling new interpretation to the joyous adventure of disguises, misunderstandings and intrigue as both legends strive to create a new world.
Nic Fallowfield will lead this stellar company of musicians from all over the country to conduct a highly emotional and expressive world of new sounds.
This was an amazingly ambitious project which Devesh Sodha achieved with resounding success. It was a very interesting experience for the orchestra musicians and conductor to play to a computer generated visual “click track” with every beat of every bar being prescribed.
