For Full Orchestra

Duration - about 4'40"

Das Kabinet des Doktor Caligari (The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari) is a silent German expressionist film made in 1919-20. Considered to be the first true horror film, it was groundbreaking in its art direction and was very influential in the development of American horror films.  This Suite is a compilation of thematic material and motifs used in Deterling's original film score for the 1919 German expressionist film. The Duluth-Superior Youth Orchestra premiered this piece on their 2013 Halloween concert.
