UFA Film Nights

Silent Film Classics with Live Musical Accompaniment

Open Air in the Heart of Berlin


August 23

In 1992 the musicians Ulrich van der Schoor, Kristoff Becker and Tobias Becker joined forces under the name Trioglyzerin to set silent films to music live. They do not only want to revive the cinema atmosphere of that time. Rather, the joint use of traditional and electronic instruments is intended to create an effective connection between classic and modern.

Trioglyzerin has made a name for herself through numerous appearances at home and abroad. The musicians' many years of experience with a wide variety of music contributes to the fact that every single film has its own, appropriate musical illustration.

The three musicians who make up Trioglyzerin already accompanied Fritz Lang's “Spies” at the 2012 UFA Film Nights, and their music was heard during “Geheimnisse des Orients” (Secrets of the Orient) at the 2013 UFA Film Nights. In 2015 they performed the musical accompaniment to Lotte Reiniger's “Die Abenteuer des Prinzen Achmed” (The Adventures of Prince Achmed), and in 2016 Trioglyzerin and the JazzCombo of the Deutsche Oper Berlin opened the UFA Film Nights with their music for “Die Bergkatze” (The Wildcat). This year, Trioglyzerin will present their new composition of the score for Ernst Lubitsch's “Sumurun”.
