Film double to open chamber music festival


The Lincolnshire International Chamber Music Festival begins next week with the screening of two films, A Late Quartet and Le Concert.

A Late Quartet stars Christopher Walken as Peter Mitchell, a cellist with the Fugue String Quartet, who, after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, announces his decision to play one final concert before he retires.

The onset of Peter’s debilitating illness forces the Quartet’s other members to re-evaluate their relationships.

The screening is at The Collection Museum in Lincoln on Friday, August 12 at 7.30pm.

Le Concert is a 2009 multiple award-winning French comedy starring Aleksei Guskov, Mélanie Laurent and Miou-Miou that was nominated for the Best Foreign Film award at the Golden Globes.

The screening is again at The Collection on Saturday, August 13 at 7.30pm.

Ticket for both are £7 and £5 on 01522 873894 or
