Songs with strings?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

I'm looking for some great instrumentals involving violins and other string instruments. Preferably modern rhythms / upbeat mixes if possible. If anyone knows of any, please share!

- We're talking about some bone chilling music or hard hitting beats like a violin version of vivaldi?

It's a guitar album, but kaki king's new album Glow features the Ethel string quartet through out it, and they do a really fantastic job of matching her guitar.  It's not Vivaldi, but maybe it could be something you would like?

some of my favorite strings are from these guys (members of Godspeed!) not sure if they match what you want but definitely modern

I like that one Wu. On the 6s it sounds so soothing and emotional. The Cello coming in to counter the violin in play is so nice.

3:13 - 3:23 in this song gave me a huge shiver when i first heard it. Not absolutely sure if this form of instrumental is to your listening pleasures. but it was something i found regarding strings in some way...




just some funky bass instrumental
