The first film in the new season of 1960s movies at TFAC, “Tom Jones” was adapted from the classic 1749 Henry Fielding novel by British playwright John Osborne and starred Albert Finney and Susannah York.
Bosley Crowther of the New York Times “Prepare yourself for what is surely one of the wildest, bawdiest, and funniest comedies that a refreshingly agile filmmaker has ever brought to the screen. It is Tony Richardson’s production of Henry Fielding’s classic novel, Tom Jones…” Referring to Finney as “the brilliant new star … he is tops in the title role.”
The film won four Academy awards – Best Picture, Best Director (Tony Richardson), Best Substantially Original Score (John Addison), and Best Writing (John Osborne) and was nominated for six others, including Best Actor (Albert Finney) and a remarkable three for best supporting actress (Diane Cilento, Dame Edith Evans, and Joyce Redman) and Best Art Direction.

This duo explores the musical connections between the sounds of vibrating strings and the human voice. The interaction between these instruments aims to engage audiences with music new and old, both specific to its instrumentation and inventively re-purposed, whether drawn from afar or composed close to home. Ms. Pohl, noted for her “sparkling voice” and “exuberant performances” (Opera News) has sung all over the world and Mr. MacRae, praised for his “rich sound and lyrical phrasing” (Palm Beach Daily News) has likewise toured the world and is on the faculty at Princeton and the Brevard Music Center.
Concert on Thursday, March 26th, 2015, at 8PM
Preceded by the Film Screening: “A Late Quartet” on Thursday, March 19th 2015, at 8 PM
This vibrant quartet, comprised of Princeton Universe music faculty, was founded in 1992 and named after Mme. Antonie Brentano, believed to be Beethoven’s “Immortal Beloved.” Its four members, graduates of the Julliard School, have performed all over the world, including a 2013 appearance at the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in Ft. Worth, TX, where they were invited to play a piano quintet by Brahms, Dvorak, Franck, or Schumann with each of the competition’s 12 finalists.
In 2012 the Brentano String Quartet’s chamber music was featured in the score of the film A Late Quartet, starring renowned actors Philip Seymour Hoffman, Christopher Walken, and Catherine Keener. While the score includes works by numerous composers, particular emphasis is on Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 14 in C-sharp Minor, Op. 131.
The presentation of the Brentano String Quartet is, in fact, a “double header” for TCA subscribers in that both a screening of A Late Quartet and a live concert by the group are offered as one event with a week’s intermission between the two parts.
