Screening success with Warren Jones

We were humbled and honored to present the west-coast premiere of Dichterliebe: POETLOVE in a very special setting: a screening/performance event hosted by Warren Jones, one of the world's most celebrated and accomplished collaborative pianists.  Mr. Jones graced the audience at Westmont College's Porter Theater in Santa Barbara with some wonderful remarks about Robert Schumann, including the poignant observation that, unlike most of his fellow composers, Schumann actually wrote love songs (including those in our film) while he was happily in love.   Mr. Jones then performed several of the songs himself, featuring students of his from the Music Academy of the West, before the capacity audience was treated to a screening of the film.  it was a truly magical event and we are so grateful to Mr. Jones for his gracious participation.
