The String Quartet Tribute to Duran Duran is a cover song album by The Vitamin String Quartet, released by Vitamin Records on 1 June 2004.

About the album Edit

The album was recorded by The Vitamin String Quartet, a rotating collective of Los Angeles musicians widely known for its tributes to cutting-edge rock acts. The band have released a series of string quartets tribute albums, that feature a wide array of instruments, but primarily violins and violas.

Included are interpretations of nine songs taken from Duran Duran's sizable catalogue. These songs are performed as instrumentals on violin, viola and cello.

The tracks include "Ordinary World" and "Save A Prayer", featuring The Vitamin String Quartet producing stirring melodies translated perfectly to the keening violin. Versions of "Girls on Film" and "Rio" sound unique without the vocal melodies.
