MIAMIDec. 16, 2021PRLogCoral Gables Art Cinema and Dranoff 2 Piano present a screening of Steamboat Bill Jr. Buster Keaton’s classic disaster film with a brand-new Classical and original contemporary musical score composed and performed by celebrated Dutch artist Jeroen van Veen and Mike del Ferro live to the rhythms of the movie’s action and comedy with the alternation of jazz, classical and improvised music.

The music is based on the works of Bach, Debussy, Chick Corea, Chopin, Mike del Ferro, Gershwin, Fauré, Mozart, Ravel, Reich & Jeroen Van Veen. In this 1928 silent classic, Buster Keaton plays a ukulele-playing college boy who’s a major disappointment to his father, the captain of a steamboat that has seen better days. Keaton falls in love with the daughter of a rival captain, much to his father’s dismay, but soon proves himself a hero as a cyclone rages through and it’s up to him to rescue his love and her father from a watery grave. Though a box office failure and a target of ridicule by critics at the time of release, Steamboat Bill Jr. has emerged as one of Keaton’s finest achievements, no doubt in part to the death-defying stunt work that includes a still-astonishing house that collapses atop the actor – with only a three-inch margin of error!

FREE Patron Reception at 6pm and Concert with Film at 7pm at the Coral Gables Art Cinema, 260 Aragon Avenue, Coral Gables, FL 33134. Tickets are $45. For tickets, visit www.Dranoff2Piano.org OR www.GablesCinema.com

“Jeroen van Veen has for many years been a powerhouse in the piano world of the Netherlands and beyond”,  Dominy Clements ( Musicweb-International)

Mike del Ferro has travelled the world extensively (so far 117 countries), searching for collaborations with musicians from cultures quite different to his own, and the musical results have been eye-opening, building musical bridges between cultures not normally within reach of each other. He has managed to combine elements of the revered canons of Western music interspersed with the audacity of Jazz improvisation, and paying tribute to the ancient structures of Asian, South American and African traditional music.
