Remembering the Lindsays - Sheffield Chamber Music Festival 2024

20 May 2024 19:00

In 1977 the BBC dedicated an episode of its Omnibus arts documentaries to the Lindsay String Quartet. Tonight’s a chance to see that documentary in full, with intriguing behind-the-scenes footage of The Lindsays in rehearsals and conversations recorded in Sheffield. The BBC also followed them to Stoke-on-Trent to record one of the group’s hugely popular ‘quartets and real ale’ concerts at the New Vic Theatre, including a peerless performance of one of Beethoven’s ‘Razumovsky’ quartets.

This fascinating documentary and other footage of the quartet will be introduced by former chair of Music in the Round, broadcaster Paul Allen, who knew The Lindsays well. Paul will be joined by Robin Ireland, viola player with The Lindsays for 20 years, and guests for further conversation and reminiscences after the screening.
