brooklyn duo take on me

Brooklyn Duo partnered with Carnegie Hall and Ensemble Connect for this awesome cover of Norwegian pop legends A-Ha’s ‘Take On Me’.

You remember the weird animated video, you remember the tinkly synthesiser line, you remember the delirious high notes. But, joyous as the original version is, chances are you’re going to find this mini-orchestral version even more satisfying.

Thanks to Brooklyn Duo’s extremely open-door policy when it comes to cover versions, this wonderful collision now exists:
