to be played without pause. This rip includes both the piano score and the orchestral reconstruction. FLAC rip (DDD stereo).

Joseph Weiss' The Student of Prague represents the first original score ever composed for a German feature film.
Weiss, a student of Liszt and Volkmann, delivered an appropriately subtle and melodious late romantic score.

The Student of Prague was made in early summer 1913 on original locations in that city, as well as in the Potsdam-Babelsberg
studios, which had been constructed in 1912. Piano virtuoso Joseph Weiss (1864-1945), a student of Liszt and Volkmann, wrote
the first specially-composed film music for the premiere; it has been passed down to us in the form of a piano score. The film's premiere
took place on 22 August, 1913, in the 'Mozart-Lichtspiele' on Berlin's Nollendorfplatz.The Student of Prague was advertised as the first
filmic attempt to portray 'great, serious dramatic and literary art'. The film's huge success led the production company to produce a slightly
shortened English-language export version, which was already shown worldwide in 1913.

The story of Balduin, the student who makes a pact with the devil, takes a Romantic motif from German literature and establishes the
fantastic genre in German silent film, which would later be continued by Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau, Fritz Lang, and others. Still astonishing
today is Guido Seeber's camera work, which, starting with the film's first scene, incorporates carefully-choreographed planned sequences
and double exposures,achievements which had never before been seen. In line with its aspiration to be more than illustrated literature,
the film largely dispensed with intertitles. In keeping with the conventions of the day, the film's scenes were tinted. In the prologue, director
Ewers and lead actor Wegener introduce Prague, the scene ofthe action.

The original film was sold in 1915 by its production company 'Deutsche Bioscop' to 'Robert Glombeck Deutsche Filmindustrie KG'.
When a remake of the film was produced in 1926, a savvy film distributor released the original in cinemas as a 'rerun', albeit in a
reworked form. Ewers had been proud of making a film with asfew intertitles as possible. These appeared like chapter headings in the
manner of fairground movies, typically at the start of every scene. Glombeck, on the other hand, added notes on location and time,
plot explanations and dialogue, for a total of 107 new intertitles, which he inserted right into the scenes, according to silent film
conventions of the 1920s. Thus the film remained in the archives for 60 years.

"Josef Weiss was one of the more eccentric Franz Liszt pupils. Weiss is best known for his highly individual recording of
F. Liszt’s 12th Hungarian Rhapsody (Pearl). He made a number of other 78 rpm's for both Anker and German Parlophone
(including a complete L.v. Beethoven Op.31 No. 3 Sonata), which have yet to reappear on CD. One of Weiss' Anker 78's
features an abridged Adagio from L.v. Beethoven's Emperor Concerto, in which Weiss is accompanied by the asthmatic
wheezings of Karl Stabernack on the harmonium."

At first I thought it was a "pick-up" orchestra, like the Hollywood Studio Symphony or the London National Philharmonic, but it's actually a thing:
