In 2018 Frank Strobel conducted the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin to the reconstructed and restored version of the silent film J'accuse. This is the first part of an Abel Gance series as part of the Musikfest Berlin, which will be continued at this year's festival with the massive silent film epic La Roue (with the original compilation of 117 works by French composers from 1880 to 1920). La Roue will also have its revival in France with the Orchestre National de Lyon at the Festival Lumière. 
Other highlights of the 2019/2020 season include three major film (music) concerts with the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra, musical direction of the opening concert and the "Long Night" at the Focus Festival of the Alte Oper Frankfurt with the hr-Sinfonieorchester, and the premiere of Chaplin's new film project "With a Smile" at the Philharmonie Paris with the Orchestre de Paris. Frank Strobel will perform the silent film classic "Metropolis" with the Philharmonia Orchestra at the Festival d'Aix-en-Provence in summer 2019 and with the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich in 2020. Frank Strobel has been invited back to the Grafenegg Festival, the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra, the MDR Symphony Orchestra, the NDR Radio Philharmonic, the Philharmonia Orchestra, the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Staatskapelle Weimar, where the silent film "Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari" will be performed with a new film music compilation. Frank Strobel will make his debut with the Belgian National Orchestra and New Japan Philharmonic in the coming season.
