The String Quartet Tribute to Led Zeppelin

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
Listening to yet another in a series of Czech string quartets' interpretations of rock & roll legends, Led Zeppelin fanatics might howl at the prospect of having their heroes' hardcore rock reduced to background music suitable for bookstores.
