Hey welcome to the board......................... can you be just a little more specific as to what you are asking.

There was a string quartet tribute to Rush a while back called Exit Stage Right, if memory serves me..............is that close to what you are asking???

As far as I know there are only two classical Rush albums, both string quartet tributes by Todd Mark Rubenstein. One is Exit.. Stage Right and the other is 2112. They're quite good. Todd's a really nice guy. I've chatted with him online a few times.

You can order those CDs directly from him, and he offers a 25% discount.

Ja, right. These two albums are really good.

On 2112 there are some interesting differences between the original and the string-version.
- Discovery: you don't hear a waterfall in the background, you hear
the ocean and birds (the white ones that are soaring near the shore,
don't know the american word for them)
- Grand Final: Attention all... the words come from a female computer
instead of a male.

Nice albums, I tell you, and worth to be bought.

The birds are called seagulls. They have varying colours, but many
are mainly white.
