On this Friday, the 11th of March, Sascha Ley and United Instruments of Lucilin (Guy Frisch, Frin Wolter und André Pons-Valdès), will bring some of the earliest silent scary movies to life thanks to their musical improvisation. Part of Luxembourg City Tourist Office’s free midday concert series, this special edition of the event will bring together musical talent and ghostly pioneering film footage from the early 20th century, including Segundo de Chomón’s The House of Ghosts (1907), Buster Keaton’s and Edward F. Cline’s The Haunted House (1921) and Scott Pembroke’s and Joe Rock’s Dr. Pryckle and Mr. Pryde (1925). Prepare yourselves for a spooky lunch break with guaranteed goose bumps at the Cinémathèque de la Ville de Luxembourg!
Twice a month, the Luxembourg City Tourist Office offers free concerts in different locations in the city centre on two Fridays from 12.30 to 1.30 p.m. The boundaries of the traditional classical repertoire are crossed in a playful way with a wide range of exotic and lively sounds, promising enriching encounters in the realm of chamber music. These musical lunch breaks have become an interesting alternative to a desk-based sandwich, opening up opportunities for people who are time-strapped to enjoy music outside of traditional evening timeslots.
