'Stand up' versions from Ian Anderson on The String Quartets / Classical Purdue

Bookmark and Share

It's a new way for chamber music fans, and for prog rock fans to unite: a 'stand up' new release from Jethro Tull leader Ian Anderson. Jethro Tull - String Quartets is a collaboration with the Carducci String Quartet, Anderson, and John O'Hara. While Anderson has worked in the classical realm with A Classic Case, and An Orchestral Jethro Tull before, this March 2017 recording is a creative and clever re-imagining of Jethro Tull (and sometimes Bach!)

WBAA's John Clare spoke to Anderson about the new release. LISTEN TO THE Classical Purdue INTERVIEW
