A quintessential string quartet, with a surprise twist
— a repertoire that ranges from Délibes to Taylor Swift
At first glance, the ALR Strings look like the quintessential classical string quartet, in their formal black suits and evening gowns. But beneath the surface, these four classically trained, exceptionally gifted string players harbour a secret – their repertoire ranges from the usual classical fare, like the Flower Duet from Delibes’ opera Lakmé, to classical reworkings of modern pop songs from the likes of Taylor Swift, Sam Smith and John Legend. As a quartet, they’ve played for many of the world’s biggest stars, including Leona Lewis, Mary J. Blige, Muse, Paloma Faith, One Direction and Il Divo. Classically elegant, with a contemporary twist, ALR Strings are the ideal choice for receptions, weddings and other events with a more formal, refined tone.
