Cine-concerts

Français   -   English

 

Fascinated by the unique role of music in the seventh art, our curiosity quickly moved to the catalogue of silent movies, a rich heritage of masterpieces and vast terrain of exploration in terms of musical accompaniment. Our first screening of Murnau's Aurore (1927) convinced us to keep going ,  putting string  quartet repertoire at the heart of the project. Over and above the charm of 'old fashioned' film projection and the fact that each showing is unique, we feel that silent movies feed the imagination of the public, and that these films can be, for some, a great way of introducing people to the string quartet universe.
