30 March 2017, 11:24
You might know it from THAT scene in The O.C., or you might know it from that Jason Derulo song - but Imogen Heap’s a cappella classic is beloved by classical musicians everywhere.
8-part cello version
Something about the cello’s sonorities and range suit this song perfectly, as this group from Cello Ireland show us, in an arrangement by Fiachra Trench.
Imogen Heap - Hide and Seek (for 8 cellos)
A stunning arrangment by Fiachra Trench, performed by NSO Cellos via Cello Ireland.
Bassoon quartet version
Again, it’s all in the sonority - bassoon quartet Breaking Winds have got this bang-on.
Piano and cello version
Brooklyn Duo are masters of the artfully planned pop cover version, so it’s no surprise they complete nail this one too.
One-man a cappella version
Dan Wright has dedication - we’ll give him that. And his attention to detail has resulted in a stunning effect.
Proving The King’s Singers aren’t averse to a little crossover action, this is a beautifully nuanced version that captures a quite different spirit to the original.
