Duo.Hansen's beautiful version of John Williams' music from Star Wars.

You may have noticed that we love Star Wars covers. No matter the ensemble, we’re always eager to hear an interpretation of John Williams’ iconic score.

So when we saw that Duo.Hansen had turned their hands (and bows) to the Force theme from the original Star Wars movie, we knew we were going to love it.

What’s so surprising about their version of this already-totes-emotional theme is just how much heart they cram into it - it’s just two instruments and Williams’ sumptuous theme, combined perfectly.

You can watch more of Duo.Hansen’s wonderful videos on their YouTube channel, and find them on Facebook too.
