Video footage of SILENZIUM performing a cover version of the NIRVANA song “Smells Like Teen Spirit” can be viewed below.
SILENZIUM was created in 2004 by young musicians from Novosibirsk Philharmonic Society. The Russian group is described as “a classical string quartet with the addition of a contrabass and a drum set, which breaks all the stereotypes about a traditional sound of a string band.” The musicians search for the most varying types of sounds of their instruments, from elevated classics to hard alternative.
SILENZIUM‘s repertoire consists from rock versions of classical pieces by J.S. Bach, Vivaldi, Grieg, Prokofiev and many other composers. Also, the band performs cover versions of well-known songs by METALLICA, RAMMSTEIN, QUEEN, DEATH, KORN as well as its own compositions.
