A new album! Mont Alto presents: Entreaty: Music of the Silent Cinema. Available for purchase through our web site (soon) and CD Baby. This album features 24 tracks in a "romantic" mood, whether that love is passionate, innocent, desperate, or doomed.

The Mont Alto Orchestra plays for the silent version of Peter Pan at the Chautauqua Auditorium on July 12!
Here are a couple of nice photoplay music pieces we recorded for recent projects. Allegro Precipitoso is for a runaway train in Beggars of Life, from the upcoming release on KIno-Lorber. Entreaty is one of our favorite pieces by J.S. Zamecnik, from last fall's release of Children of Divorce on Flicker Alley.
Mont Alto has recorded a series of scores for the recent Kino-Lorber release of Buster Keaton Short Films. Here's a nice waltz, Minnie T. Wright's The Faun, from our score to The Garage; Pierette, from The Scarecrow; and a Misterioso Fantastique by Irenee Berge from Neighbors.
Mont Alto's private reserve DVD of The Mark of Zorro, has received some great reviews! Details and sample audio files on our Recordings page. Read original reviews at DigitallyObsessed and at DVDTalk.com. Also available, our DVD of Buster Keaton's The General.
