Lots of new special music arrangements in the pipeline! Creating a song arrangement for one of our ensembles to play is always a pleasure, and adds a personal touch to every wedding or event. I’m currently working on music by Shania Twain, The Prodigy, Chopin, Queen and Max Richter.
Our Classical Strings Trio had a wonderful time playing for a wedding ceremony at Genny’s Church, followed by Launcells Barton The weather was kind, and our lovely couple chose a selection of music from Bridgerton for their special music arrangement. Sue x
This is the Classical Strings Quartet filmed during a rehearsal. We are playing my String Arrangement of ‘One Summer’s Day’ from the film Spirited Away, originally composed by Joe Hisaishi.
This arrangement is also available for Trio, Duo and Solo Violin and is a very popular piece of music for weddings.
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…
