Collection includes "Paranoid Antroid" and "House of Cards". Orchestral in scope, but rock by instrumentation, Radiohead pushed the musical limits of rock music with its 1997 landmark album OK Computer. This arrangement of the album's epic track "Paranoid Android" will challenge any string quartet. Tricky rhythms and time-signature changes are just the tip of the iceberg for this complex piece of music. Polar opposite in tone to "Paranoid Android" is the Grammy-nominated song "House of Cards" (In Rainbows, 2007), an uncharacteristically relaxed Radiohead love ballad. Melodically deadpan, the crux of the song lies in the rhythmic groove created by the guitar figure faithfully played in this string quartet arrangement by the viola. Score and Parts.
Fifteen pieces arranged for any combination of 3 or more stringed instruments. All 3 parts are included in each book allowing all students to gain experience playing both melody and harmony parts. The "mileage" of each selection is also increased as it never has to be played with the same instrumentation twice.
