I've been talking about fusion music for violin.  

Never thought I'd run across something like this! 

"Adagio for strings / Secret" by Tiesto (Vilmos Vass). 

Adagio for Strings/Secret

This was part of the 2019 "Tomorrowland Presents: OUR STORY" production in Amsterdam. 

Here's the entire show! 

Our Story - 15 Years of Tomorrowland

Might want to throw this one up on your TV to watch! 




...a little different experience. 😊

I rarely like any fusion.

But I've always loved Tiesto's Adagio. It's the last track on his CD Just Be (2004). It was a club anthem for a few years after that.

I'm not sure if you are loving the piece or this particular performance with live musicians.

The "original mix" is about the longest version (the album version is 2 minutes shorter). You can't have too much of a good thing.

Always thought he overdid the rimshots though. And how much of it should be loud and how much quiet is always going to be moot.
