“Vampyr” brings together music and cinema from the 20th and the 21st centuries in the Estonian premiere of the Estonian composer Tõnu Kõrvits’s score (completed in 2015) for the Danish director Carl Theodor Dreyer’s 1932 film.

The film “Vampyr or The Dream of Allan Grey” is an avant-garde classic, a nightmarish work of art filled with fireworks of visual effects that are still impressive.
Kõrvits was commissioned to create the soundtrack for the film by the Normandy Symphony Orchestra from France. The premiere of the piece took place on 20 November 2015 in Caen at the Les Boreales Festival, and was conducted by Jean Deroyer. The audience in Estonia can enjoy the work as performed by the Pärnu City Orchestra, conducted by Kaspar Mänd.
