Check out a YouTube clip of Quatuor Ebène playing the surf guitar classic Miserlou, as popularized in Pulp Fiction.

Description

Featuring popular music from the Beatles to Springsteen, Quatuor Ebène’s highly popular album, Fiction, recently made both NPR Music’s overall 50 Favorites of 2011 as well as their own classical-centric list! This quirky, hip chamber ensemble from Paris returns to SF for just the second time to perform songs from Fiction.

The ensemble says it introduces audiences “… to something new; and equally jazz and pop audiences can discover that classical instruments are capable of different sounds … It enables us to look at the score from a different perspective and to see classical music as a kind of improvisation.” Don’t miss their performance in San Francisco on November 8!
