Listen now: Pop goes classical


What happens when you take popular songs from the last half century and rework them for classical instruments?

In this curated playlist, Classical IPR offers you musical selections from blues, hip-hop, rock, pop and country, all reimagined for classical musicians. 

"Bohemian Rhapsody" for piano duo, Metallica for cello quartet, Britney Spears for ukulele orchestra, Dr. Dre for string trio, Nirvana for symphony orchestra - it's all here.

Hear Led Zeppelin, Paul Simon, Jimi Hendrix, Adele, the Beatles, the White Stripes, and many others as you've never heard them before.

You'll need a free Spotify account to listen.
