This is the new video for the official single by Classical Strings!
The song was originally by Nick Cave and is the soundtrack for the BBC drama Peaky Blinders.
The music was arranged for Strings by Sue Aston and the video was created by Genius Loci Media
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…
Viva Forever’ Arranged for String Quartet by Sue Aston, from Classical Strings. This is a beautiful, haunting melody by the Spice Girls, which works well for strings! Here is the Classical Strings Quartet warming up for a wedding at Polhawn Fort in Cornwall.
This is the Classical Strings Quartet trying out one of my special music arrangements, which I created for one of our lovely couples! It is a gorgeous melody, and is the theme from the film, ‘Cinema Paradiso’ by Morricone, arranged for strings by me, Sue Aston!
Here is a short clip of The Classical Strings Quartet performing live at a wedding recently at St Enodoc Hotel & Restaurant in Cornwall. We are playing one of my string arrangements, ‘Everything I Do, I Do It For You’, by Bryan Adams. Hope you enjoy it! Sue Aston
Classical Strings have been hugely in demand this summer, not only for weddings, but also for public performances and corporate events!
The Classical Strings Quartet recently performed at the opening of a new car showroom for Hawkins Motors in Penryn. Our mix of popular classics and contemporary rock, pop and film music created a great vibe for the event, and we have been asked to play at forthcoming launches around Cornwall! We were delighted to be featured in their corporate video which showcased the event!
The stunning Atlantic Hotel in Newquay asked our Trio to perform at their event – ‘Strings by the Sea with Laurent – Perrier’. We put on a concert for people to enjoy while they sampled canapés and drank champagne, while taking in the amazing sea view. This was such a memorable evening, and we received a standing ovation!
One of our most ambitious commissions to date took place at Yummy Scrummy Bakery in Par, who asked us to create a ‘Last Night of the Proms’ themed concert for people to enjoy while they dined by candlelight. The Classical Strings Quartet teamed up with our singer, Maria Heseltine, and as well as our exclusive music arrangements, we finished off with proms favourites, ‘Jerusalem’, ‘Rule Britannia’ and ‘Land of Hope and Glory’. The audience sang along, while waving union flags enthusiastically! Another fantastic event that we were very honoured to create.
