By the late 1970s, Pink Floyd had achieved much success, but they were rapidly being sidelined by the onslaught of punk rock and new wave. In a bold move, Pink Floyd created The Wall—an ambitious concept album concerned with a rock star’s miserable childhood and mental breakdown during another relentless world tour. With an elaborate stage show, the entire project seemed overwhelming and unsustainable, but behind the theatrics, Pink Floyd managed to produce some of their most concise and accessible music in years, including their first hit single since the 1960s.

This string quartet tribute takes the best and most memorable songs from The Wall and gives them the chamber treatment. Key tracks like “Comfortably Numb,” “Hey You” and “Goodbye Blue Sky” are lovingly recreated. Guitars, drums and keyboards are replaced by violin, viola and cello with stunning results. The emotions behind these intensely personal songs and their timeless melodies are truly heightened by these beautiful string arrangements.
