Brooklyn Duo ft. Dover Quartet - Bohemian Rhapsody

This string quartet teamed up with Brooklyn Duo to play a Queen classic.


By Maddy Shaw Roberts

A string quartet teamed up with a pianist and a cellist, to create a totally stunning rendition of ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.

The Brooklyn Duo are Marnie and Patrick Laird, a pianist and a cellist (who also happen to be married – aww) who do amazing reworkings of hits from the pop and rock world.

The Dover Quartet are Joel Link, Bryan Lee, Milena Pajaro-Van de Stadt and Camden Shaw – the New Yorker has called them “the young American string quartet of the moment”.

Put the two groups together, and you get one totally exquisite classical ensemble. Their arrangement of the Queen hit is packed with the dramatic flair and dynamics which make the original so iconic.
