String Quartet Tribute to Aerosmith

String Quartet Tribute to Aerosmith - The Album Cover This Aerosmith tribute album, "String Quartet Tribute to Aerosmith", was released on Vitamin Records(?) on March 18, 2003. Nine Aerosmith tracks are given new interpretations here by the Da Capo Players and the Czech Quartet of Prague. An original composition performed by the Czech String Orchestra is tagged on at the end.

During 2002 and 2003, there was a number of "String Quartet Tributes" released. Among the other acts given this tribute we find such different acts as Slayer, Yanni, Madonna, Nirvana, Staind, Train, James Taylor, Weezer, Bob Dylan and Black Sabbath.

Here is a review of this Aerosmith tribute, from AMG:
The landscape of the pop standard is changing, and there is no clearer signal than the bowed reverie of "Dream On" that begins String Quartet Tribute to Aerosmith. That tune and eight other gems from the Aerosmith canon are given new interpretations here by the Da Capo Players and the Czech Quartet of Prague. Some of it works, mostly more recent Aerosmith like "Angel" and "Janie's Got a Gun" where the melody is more developed. Other songs, like hard rock gems "Toys in the Attic" and "Draw the Line," just sound busy and confused, but the cheekiness of it all saves even these muddled moments. And it's that sort of cheesy inside humor that carries the new wave of pop classical crossover albums — that and an understanding that more people now know the melody to "Rag Doll" than to "Ebb Tide." — Wade Kergan
