Biography of the Artist
Neil Z. Yeung is the author of this piece.
Classical crossover string quartet Eklipse, shrouded in mystery, transforms pop, alternative, and soundtrack classics into lushly orchestrated compositions that preserve the spirit of each original. Eklipse was formed in 2012 when four German musicians met by accident at a festival in St. Petersburg, Russia: violinists Miss E. and Scarlett, cellist Helena, and the appropriately called Viola on the namesake instrument. A Night in Strings, their first album, was released in 2013. Covers of alternative favorites by Linkin Park and Depeche Mode, pop songs by Coldplay, Lady Gaga, and Justin Timberlake, and oldies by David Bowie and Kate Bush were included in the compilation. They went on tour with Nightwish, with backing from bands like Kamelot and the Mission who aren’t classically trained. On their sophomore album, Electric Air, they included Adele, Massive Attack, Muse, Empire of the Sun, the Clash, the Eurythmics, Florence + the Machine, and even Sia and David Guetta’s dance hit “Titanium.” Liberte, Egalite, Sensualite, Eklipse took inspiration from France for their third album. From Debussy’s “Clair de Lune” and the 1965 France Gall/Serge Gainsbourg smash “Poupee de Cire, Poupee de Son” to Les Rita Mitsouko’s ’80s single “Marcia Baila” and the 2001 Noir Desir/Manu Chao song “Le Vent Nous Portera,” the EP included a wide variety of French classics. The foursome debuted their cover of the classic “Carol of the Bells” in late 2016.
