Aston has won my heart.  They have some truly wonderful, beautiful covers of some of top 40 hits.  What’s different, though, is that their arrangements are classical.

They are a group of young Australian musicians, most of whom have just graduated from a conservatory.  Classical purists may not like their “classical pop” genre, but for someone who likes violins AND dance music, they are a dream come true.

Some of my favorite:  Rihanna’s Only Girl (above); Lady GaGa’s Born This Way; and Katy Perry’s latest, E.T.

Enjoy!
