Chief Conductor of the WDR Funkhausorchester
Artistic Director of the Europäische Filmphilharmonie
The world premiere of the – so far - most comprehensive film and music reconstruction of Fritz Lang's masterpiece "Metropolis" was certainly the undisputed highlight of the Berlinale 2010. After a spectacular discovery of film reels in Buenos Aires, a reconstruction team, of which Frank Strobel was a member, set about re-cutting the film to the music at hand. Since then, this version has been the reference version. Frank Strobel will perform "Metropolis" twice this summer with the London Philharmonia Orchestra - Firstly on 13 June at the at the Royal Festival Hall and on 14 July at Festival d' Aix-en-Provence.
