Classical Strings To Release Their First Single!

Classical Strings release new single Red Right Hand from Peaky Blinders

Our most popular wedding string arrangement of 2019 will be our first single release of 2020!

This will be my arrangement for String Quartet of the Peaky Blinder’s theme, ‘Red Right Hand’ by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.

The version of the song on our YouTube Channel and Soundcloud has had 1000’s of views and we have had many requests for an official recording. It has also been a hit with all the other weddings we have played at in 2018/19 I have tried to capture the raw and rhythmic quality of the music which reflects life in Birmingham.

The official release date will be Friday, January 3rd 2020 across Spotify, Apple Music, Google, Amazon, Tidal and many more…

Every Wedding Is As Unique As The Bride & Groom Getting Married

cornwall violinist sue aston Being Being booked to play at a wedding is never just a job, it is not just about playing a few songs.
A wedding day is charged full of emotions, many of them full of love and joy.
However, they can also be tinged with sadness if a family member, such as a parent, has passed away. Sometimes the music I play represents someone’s memory, and this can become a poignant moment during the ceremony.

For the couple booking me, this is their one special day, and I am always aware of how honoured I feel to be part of this.

On the wedding day, not everyone may see me, but I am aware that each note will be weaving amongst the conversations and creating memories that will last a lifetime. During the wedding ceremony, I time the music to fit in with each step the bride takes, being aware of the emotions and love filling the room in which the wedding is taking place.

Every wedding is as unique as the bride and groom getting married.

Wedding Tips – Reassurance For You

As the wedding date approaches it’s reassuring to know that all the music for your ceremony is arranged properly and that all the plans are in place.
I am always available to chat to before the big day so that you don’t experience any unnecessary stress to add to any pre-wedding nerves!

I always send out an email one month before your wedding day detailing the running order of the music for your ceremony, checking the timings, and I often chat to Brides on messenger to help reassure that every aspect of the music is taken care of.

wedding music trends 2020

We are predicting that movie & TV soundtracks are going to continue to grow as the main theme for wedding entertainment in 2020.
The Greatest Showman has been very popular this year and I expect other songs from the film to be requested next year.

Data Analysis based on;

 

Heart Strings and Wedding Rings

As a professional musician when you play in a wedding ceremony you are not just creating music.

You are changing the atmosphere of the room that music is played in. You are helping to join together the thoughts and emotions of all the wedding guests in that room.

The music played in the ceremony helps tell the story, a story about love, commitment and being together. So whenever you hear that music again, you are transported back to that magical time…

Cornwall Quartet Venezuelan waltz ‘Alma Llanera’ String Quartet Wedding

Here is the Classical Strings Quartet performing my special arrangement of the Venezuelan waltz ‘Alma Llanera’ at Boconnoc House and Estate in Cornwall for a wedding last Saturday.

I was asked by the Groom to create this bespoke music arrangement as a symbol of international friendship between the different cultures of the guests at this incredible wedding.

This behind the scenes video features the rehearsal, my introduction to the guests, and the actual performance which saw the wedding guests singing along and dancing!

Green and Eco Weddings

Those of you who know me from my work as a composer and recording artist will be aware of how important the landscape and the environment are to my work.

I am therefore very excited and pleased to see this upsurge in green and eco friendly weddings.
In many ways there is no better form of green entertainment than a String Quartet. It requires no electricity, no batteries and the instruments are traditional and handmade.

With many people looking for Barn Weddings and holding their celebrations outside, the music from a String Quartet (or similar string ensemble) will blend in with nature, bird song and the voices of your guests.
My job as the arranger and leader of the String Quartet is to provide a soundtrack that is recognisable, but at the same time not intrusive.

Please get in touch if you have any questions about how we can add a touch of natural magic to your wedding day!
