The Lobster: Live

Bringing live string quartet into the cinema, in collaboration with Picturehouse Cinemas.

In a world first, we screen Yorgos Lanthimos’s The Lobster with live score, arranged for string quartet and piano. The almost exclusively classical, quirky soundtrack – featuring music by Beethoven, Shostakovitch and Britten amongst others – has been arranged for live performance and brings this cult film (from the director of The Favourite) to life in a totally new way.

Devised, arranged and performed by the acclaimed Solem Quartet for Solem Lates.

Autumn 2019 – Spring 2020

Works featured: Beethoven op. 18/1, Shostakovich Quartet no. 8, Schnittke Quartet no. 2, Schnittke Quintet for Piano and Strings, Stravinsky 3 Pieces for String Quartet, Britten Quartet no. 1, Strauss Don Quixote (arr. Will Newell)
