LINER NOTES

Based on Ayn Rand's novel, Anthem, Rush's 2112 is a composition masterpiece honoring one of the most brilliant writers of our day. And as far as progressive rock, Rush bears the crown as one of the most suited bands to take on such a colossal project. Side 1 of the amazing 2112 features a dark medley of seven songs, interwoven with eerie precision. Side 2 boasts the triumphant "A Passage to Bangkok" and "The Twilight Zone," both of them a perfect compliment to a powerful beginning. The result is a magnificent journey through complex musical passages that will stir your imagination many times over.

The String Quartet Tribute to Rush's 2112 is a scenic trek through uncharted musical territory. The viola, violin and cello unearth a melancholy and ethereally delicate aspect of of Rush's creation, infusing it with an unearthly classical mien. The adventure of listening to The String Quartet Tribute to Rush's 2112 will leave you breathless with admiration.
