Bond! (guest post)

Music coming out of the strings of a violin makes its way right to the heart. It is so soothing you can listen to it forever. Its sweet sound gives such a peacefully tempting sensation that the listener is forced to believe as if the music is coming straight out of heaven, and is casting an everlasting impression on the mind from wherever it passes along. It’s more like a hypnotism you can say. And you simply just get all lost in the world full of soothing pleasure.

There’s this female band or maybe you can say a feminist band because it has four women singers and violinists in it all together. So it is exactly named as string quartet Bond. Bond, not as in James bond, but the strings quartet bond is the Australian or British bond having a unique specialty in classical crossover as well synthpop music.

Classical? Did someone say classical? The idea of a classical crossover being played on a violin is absolutely unbelievably awesome. And this quartet has literally the best violinists of all time. It embraces two violinists naming Tania Davis and Eos Counsell. The other two members are named as Elspeth Hanson and Gay-Yee Wasterhoff. And together, all four of them are doing wonders. This quartet has sold more than 4 million records and still counting.

Speaking of the violinists, Tania Davis is a really talented artist when it comes to playing a classical crossover on a violin. Looking a bit beyond her background, Tania got her early education from SCEGGS Darlinghurst Sydney. Later on, she acquired some interest in music so decided to move along with that. So, she got a first class Bachelor degree in Music honors from Sydney Conservatorium of Music.

Moving along to the second and equally talented violinist of the string quartet Eos Counsell, she gets her hands pretty smoothly on the violin. She has also got an honors degree in Music from the Royal College of Music London. She has performed her magnificent role of a violinist in many other pop groups which also include The Divine Comedy.

We can never get enough of it; whenever we start listening these violinists practicing their incredible skills using a violin which itself is a magical instrument. It truly takes away the mind and heart of the listener, which is actually so difficult to take both these things along together. But violin does its magic.
