Nintendo For Strings
April 24, 2014
It's time for music! Liven up your day with performances by the Videri String Quartet of classic themes from Nintendo's memorable video games. This Yoshi's Island medley has been making the rounds online this week, but a search of the group's YouTube library reveals a Legend of Zelda medley, the Hyrule Castle theme from A Link to the Past, and greatest hits from Donkey Kong Country. These are solid performances from some talented people (Aubrey Holmes, violin; Renee Spady, violin; Rosie Samter, viola; and Jeremiah Barcus, cello). I'd love to hear more from them particularly from the worlds of Super Mario, Kirby, Castlevania, and Mega Man. Do you think they take requests?
