The Section Quartet

At least since 1966, when a staff producer and arranger at Elektra Records named Joshua Rifkin took advantage of the then-current revival of interest in 17th century music to create The Baroque Beatles Book, the idea of classical musicians playing rock & roll has generally been treated as a novelty. Even when the Kronos Quartet used to encore their recitals of 20th century music with a reconstruction of Jimi Hendrix's "Purple Haze" back in the 1980s, it was done with a nod and wink. However, there have occasionally been more serious crossovers from classical into pop, such as classical pianist Christopher O'Riley's CD of solo piano reinterpretations of Radiohead and Elliott Smith songs, or Philip Glass' 1986 song cycle Songs from Liquid Days. The Los Angeles-based Section Quartet work from a similar aesthetic, blurring the demarcations between pop and "serious" music even further. The Section Quartet formed in 1998, composed of violinists Eric Gorfain and Daphne Chen, violist Leah Katz, and cellist Richard Dodd. While maintaining a career as a classically-oriented string quartet, the four also worked as session musicians, performing on soundtracks including I Heart Huckabees and Saw and working on pop albums like Christina Aguilera's Stripped. Gorfain and Dodd's work on that album's 2002 smash "Beautiful" brought the Section Quartet to the attention of the song's writer and producer Linda Perry. Following two self-released efforts, 2004's No Electricity Required and 2006's Lizards Like Us, as well as a pair of well-received performances at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival, the Section Quartet were signed to Universal Music Group's revived Decca imprint for their Perry-produced major-label debut Fuzz Box, including new versions of songs by artists ranging from the Strokes and the Postal Service to Led Zeppelin and David Bowie. ~ Stewart Mason, Rovi

This is the best version of this song ever ever ever.
so glad this popped up ive only ever heard the postal service's version of this
Doesn't matter whose song they're playing...th e y ' r e PLAYERS!
Man I'm not really a fan of this band... Mostly because the info about them is pretty much a history lesson... And that they don't list the band that made each of their songs... Its practically plagiarism.. . I also feel their remakes just don't have the emotion the originals did...
every comment here is about cover of Bowie's song lol, either way, it's a great cover, love it
bigguy1226
This was actually originally done by: Queens of the Stone Age - No One Knows
you are dumb jimmykonet.. . Nirvana covered this tune... its a Bowie song
The fûck does this have to do with nirvana?
They are amazing
"No one knows" idiot.
@emokid: moron.

tahirihm

Nirvana
Hey guys I think this band does covers of all these songs... read the track list for the album...
To everyone arguing who's song it is. OH MY GOD WHO THE HELL CARES.
It's Such great heights from The Postal Service, but I think comments are for the bio not for the song that's currently playing.... anyway.. great cover...
soosmna
I think everyone is commenting on different songs. Its playing "time is running out" by muse for me. I see some people are saying heart breaker or even such great heights by postal service is playing for them, well at least the covers. So i guess no one is wrong?
Wonderful and creative arrangement that really captures the essence of the original while providing a sublime organic perspective.

Note: To those of you arguing over the particular song, you are commenting on the artist profile, not on individual songs.
Lol at everyone arguing about any band that isn't Postal Service. Listen to a CD once in a while.
Guys. It's the postal service...
For all you idiots... this is not Muse, or Led Zeppelin, or Radiohead, or David Bowie. This cover they are doing called Such Great Heights is by The Postal Service.... nuff said.
Cool song!
Hey guys ITS FOX :) I've made a account and I'd like to start some follows! So if u follow me i follow back

This is MUSE's song 100% so it's a cover of their song.
To those of you who think this is a muse cover I would like to correct your misinformati o n that you've been given somehow. Heartbreaker was a song from Led Zeppelin. Sometimes arguable by metal heads that they may have been metal before it was known as metal. I enjoyed this rendition of a song that I heard over and over again during my childhood. Look this up btw. If you enjoyed this song then you may want to listen to the real Led Zeppelin. Thanks for reading and long live great music. http://e
Actually this is a David Bowie cover. Neither radiohead or muse.
Sorry to break it down to ya', but this is not a radiohead cover. It's Muse's song
THIS IS A RADIOHEAD COVER. NOT MUSE
I love this song it reminds me of my boyfriend and me and him together �� |(._.)| but I miss him i can't see him for two weeks
Man who sold the world is teriffic but I bought the cd and this gets old fast
This song delivered unto me copious amounts of feels upon first hearing it bless my ears with it's wonderful arrangement of instruments. Keep up the good work Section Quartet.
im so sure they r playing the electric violin
This is real music for my ears, beautiful instrumental song!

This new wave of string quartets (and other 'classical' instrumental i s t s ) focusing almost exclusively on doing covers of popular music is a bit tired. Kronos not only already covered that but they also did so as an aside to an otherwise very varied ouevre which is mainly made up of new and original music. Arranging rock songs for strings is not necessarily interesting in and of itself and should not be the focus of a string quartet imho.

Dude this instrumental version is freaking amazing!!! Luv it
MUST READ THIS!!!! I'd just like to say to all of you people posting these comments saying your gonna die or date your crush are not true. You will not actually die or fall in love. Trust me, I've tried one and it didn't work (obviously) and I read one and never died... I mean really people are so stupid out there!!! Someone just started it to freak people out. So can you please just chill out and stop? Repost to get word around
I really do love these people. I've been blessed to watch them perform with my high school orchestra for the past 2 years while I was in middle school and this spring I will be able to perform with them. We have been able to continue our orchestra program throughout the district thanks to thanks to money that's been raised and recognition our music program has received thanks to TSQ.
<3 these instruments and the <3 the music oh! Please follow me I need more followers I'll follow back :)
Not sure if these comments are to antoehr song by this band, but the one I am listening to is Postal Service - Such Great Heights, which would be a great song even with mouth harps and saw violins.
This is very nice, but why is this in my dubstep channel?
