MOZART HEROES

And we’re back.

The blog has been quite for a while, I was indisposed elsewhere. Hopefully I can now get back to a more regular series of updates.

OK, so when I was searching for something else I came across this awesome duo. If you are a regular you will know my penchant for stringed instruments, in particular guitars, cellos and violins. So here we go two out of three ain’t bad.
Then take another penchant of mine, classical / rock crossover.

So meet MOZART HEROES, Chris Krebs (Violoncello) and Phil Seeholzer (guitar) and they hail from Lucerne, Switzerland. And they play like the devil is on their ass. This is some amazing kick ass rock n roll.

Now this is the first track that put me in their realm. An awesome blending o

f Mozart and Metallica. I love the way that this track starts of in such a genteel manner, albeit a tad faster than one would expect. And then the fury erupts.
Kick back and enjoy.

You start of with a beautiful arrangement of La Catedral, and then of course you get Thunderstruck. The AC/DC piece has long been a favorite, and was even more so when friends of ours got married and the grooms 85 year old father escorted the bride down the isle to the sound of Thunderstruck. Awesome event, as is this video.

This is a arrangement by MOZART HEROES playing:
– Augustin Barrios, La Catedral
– AC/DC, Thunderstruck written by Angus and Malcom Young

 

The biggest problem as I wonder through their repertoire is what to include and what to leave out. I couldn’t leave this out being a big James Bond fan as well as a huge fan of Adele. This is a bit more gentle.

I’m a sucker for everything “Game of Thrones”, especially the theme tune. I sit through it for every episode even though it is on DVR and I could fast forward to the action. This is an awesome mesh of Suite No 1, G Major and the main theme from GOT. Got it? Enjoy it.

We’ll have to make this the last of the day. And what a gem, a straight up rendering of Vivaldi, and i love me some Vivaldi. This is from a live appearance in the Stadtkeller, Lucerne (CH). And what an awesome way to leave them.
Bravo!!!
