Balanescu Quartet Play Kraftwerk

Strange to notice that Kraftwerk are classically trained musicians that spent the late 60s and 70s removing 'real' instruments from their recordings by designing electronic replacements.

This ironic recording is also iconic in the way in which it restores the underlying classical undertones to the tracks whilst remaining faithful to the originals.
Interestingly whilst some might describe the original Kraftwerk pieces as sparse in this performance they appear lusher than your standard quartet pieces.
Here another version with David byrne, as an introduction for you
