On December 6th, was the screening of Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau's "Nosferatu" held at Amirani Cinema. This film is one of the most appreciated works of Murnau, which he made in 1922, based on Bram Stocker's Dracula. This session was held with a musical accompaniment by the jazz-band KÜSPERT &KOLLEGEN.

KÜSPERT & KOLLEGEN is a jazz chamber ensemble, which's been traveling around the world for couple of years already and accompanies the masterpieces of the silent film. Their listener is a contemporary jazz and silent film lover audience. "We always have our finger on the pulse - our music does not sound like a traditional silent film music but contemporary and unpredictable." - says a guitarist and a composer, Werner Küspert.

Werner Küspert worked on the movies and television plays but in 2016, he got back to the stage and nowadays his ensemble KÜSPERT & KOLLEGEN makes the synthesis of jazz and a silent movie on the highest performing level.
