A Late Quartet - A String Quartet Movie

Movie about string quartet is on the way. Directed  by Yaron Zilberman the movie called "A Late Quartet".

Members of a world-renowned string quartet struggle to stay together in the face of death, competing egos and insuppressible lust.

The Strad Magazines words : The musical centrepiece of the film is Beethoven's Quartet in C minor op.131, which the group is seen rehearsing for what might be its last performance together. The Brentano Quartet provided the soundtrack for these scenes, and according to an interview with Zilberman posted on, the cast had to learn about 30 phrases each to make the playing look realistic in front of the camera.

Zilberman added that he modelled his quartet on several ensembles: the Guarneri Quartet, the Quartetto Italiano and the Emerson Quartet. Is the liner for the film. Starring:
