Who Is the Jack Curtis Dubowsky Ensemble?

The Jack Curtis Dubowskey Ensemble, also known as JCDE, is a team of top players led by composer and conductor Jack Curtis Dubowsky. JCDE combines intricately composed material and structured improvisation, sparking new life with original scores to classic silent films, including:

  • Nosferatu
  • The Golem
  • The Phantom Carriage
  • Sunrise
  • Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
  • The Mark of Zorro


  1. W. Murnau is known as one of the influential directors of his day. His work, NOSFERATU is an iconic German expressionist film. Starring the famous caricature Dracula, the silent film NOSFERATU exploits this popular character’s many contradictions, including being:
  • Worldly but cloistered
  • Approachable but distant
  • Mannered but deadly
