Composer-Producer William Perry has played a major role in the revival of interest in silent films, both through his 100 silent film scores and his Emmy Award-winning TV series ‘The Silent Years’, hosted by Orson Welles and Lillian Gish. The critically-acclaimed Naxos recording ‘Music for Great Films of the Silent Era’ (8.572567) presented a rich array of Perry’s film music; this companion volume offers a further view of Perry’s colorful, exuberant writing, including his new “Silent Film Heroines” song-suite for mezzo-soprano and orchestra, celebrating eight legendary silent cinema actresses. Perry’s supremely melodic sense of period and style captures perfectly the romance, grandeur and humor of those entertaining days when “Movies were movies!”
