Show Details

Teddy and the LO perform a World premiere film with live music accompaniment. Documentary filmmaker Dennis Scholl collaborates with the Louisville Slugger Museum to create a short film about the famed baseball bat company. The film score is Claude Debussy’s Jeux (“Games”). Then we present the epic propaganda film Battleship Potemkin with a brand-new music score. Selected from 21 classical masterpieces by Bach, Beethoven, Mahler, Mendelssohn, Debussy and more, the music is a powerful enhancement to the emotional drama of this historic movie.

Teddy Abrams, conductor
