The Last of the Mohicans

Brent Davids
September 22, Thursday

Limited seating available, admission is only by prior booking. To register for the event, please send an email titled Mohicans to

The first film adaptation of The Last of the Mohicans, a novel by Fenimore Cooper, was a black and white, silent movie of the same name shot in 1920 by Maurice Tourneur and Clarence Brown. In 2003, the Native American composer Brent Michael Davids created a 73-minute soundtrack for the film. This fantastic piece of music written for a full orchestra, perfectly complements the epic tale and features the composer himself playing Indian flutes, including his own unique quartz flute.

The most striking feature of the soundtrack is that it can function as a self-contained piece of orchestral music, but when played alongside a screening of the film, suddenly the instruments imitate the sounds of nature, corresponding directly to the action on screen.

Join us for an exclusive chance to hear Brent Davids discuss his work, answer questions and perform parts of his compositions.

The event is supported by the United States Embassy in Moscow under the Medvedev-Obama Committee's event program.

Brent Davids is an American composer and flautist. Besides his cinema collaborations, he has created music for the Zeitgeist Band, the Kronos Quartet, the Joffrey Ballet and others. He is a member of the Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohican Indians. His Mohican name is Blue Butterfly.
