One of the more famous shots from "Battleship Potemkin."

Sergei Eisenstein's silent film, "Battleship Potemkin," retains its status as one of the most influential and deeply studied films of all time. But as with all silent films, the experience of watching it is much better with music.

Nearly 100 years after it was made,  Britt Festival Orchestra director Teddy Abrams asked orchestra bassist Nathan Farrington to create a new musical soundtrack to accompany the film. Farrington joins us to talk about how he wove together 22 classical masterworks into a new musical experience, premiering Sunday, August 11th.
