Film Series

From Alex Garza, The Queen’s Film Society President:

The Friends of Chamber Music’s Film Series started on November 12 with The Piano from 1993, which was paired with Daniel Hsu’s piano recital a week later. On January 14, 2020, to go along with the Italian Saxophone Quartet, Friends of Chamber Music will be showing Death on the Nile from 1978. 

A visually sumptuous and quintessentially British production, Death on the Nile won an Oscar® for Anthony Powell's costume design and introduced Peter Ustinov in his first portrayal as the Belgian detective Poirot. Abroad a luxury Nile steamer a mystery assassin takes the life of an heiress.

 

The Death on the Nile features the music of the Italian composer Nino Rota who is famous for his scores in many Federico Fellini movies, including La Strada and 8 1/2. In the USA, Nino Rota is widely known for working on The Godfather.

FCM shows this fun adaptation of the Agatha Christie’s thriller in anticipation of the Italian Saxophone Quartet performance. What is the connection between the film and the concert? This riddle may need Hercule Poirot’s detective skills to be solved!
