Amongst the array of academics that took part in our Moving Creatures film season, we were very lucky to welcome Dr Rachael Durkin for our Young Frankenstein screening.

Rachael is a lecturer in Music at Edinburgh Napier University and a cultural historian specialising in musical instruments and their relevance within historical and fictional contexts. She recently wrote an article on the kit violin for the Galpin Society and contributed a chapter on the viola d’amore for Die so Lieblich Klinget.

In this short podcast Rachael briefly talks about Young Frankenstein‘s soundtrack and the musical intertextuality between the original novel and the film.
