A vibrant Cardiff-based ensemble of talented, international young musicians, available to create the perfect musical atmosphere at special events. Aderyn String Quartet started collaboration with Happy Sheet Music in December 2014, with arrangements of “Stand by me” (Ben E. King), “Numb” (Linkin park), “Happy” (Pharrell Williams), etc.
It all started 3 years ago, in March 2014, when Lynette decided to try HappySheetMusic arrangement of Mamma mia (ABBA). Ten arrangements after that her String quartet Capriccio continued playing our arrangements, and now we make special arrangements on her request, for two, three or five violins, and of course for String quartet, like The Christmas song “Chestnuts roasting” and Fairytale of the New York (The Pogues).
Wonder String Quartet was founded in 2000 with the intention and the wish to enable its members to express different types of the musical sensitivity in addition to the classical one. Their repertoire is characterized by a variety of musical genres, and we can proudly say that HappySheetMusic’s arrangements like: “Fragile” (Sting), “Hot Stuff” (Donna Summer) and “Somebody told me” (The Killers) are often played on their performances.
Happy Sheet Music presents you one beautiful team of young musicians who just started a collaboration with us. The Highline String Quartet is one of the most sought after New York string quartets for wedding ceremony music, corporate events, and parties. Dubbed “fun-loving, and stuffiness-eschewing” by TimeOut NY Magazine, Highline specializes not only in the performance of great classical repertoire but original compositions and pop arrangements as well.
In this testimonial, Fred Lieder, cellist from Washington, has a few words to say about his collaboration with the founder of Happy Sheet Music and music arranger, Bojana Jovanovic. We already wrote about Fred Lieder’s quartet String Along on our Blog, and now you can read his words and thoughts about our music.
Everything here started with making a wish come true. 10 Years ago, my Trio wanted to play something special during our Chamber studies on Academy, so I wrote an arrangement of Libertango (Astor Piazzolla) for us. Then someone came up with an idea to play tango “Por una cabeza” by Carlos Gardel, we didn’t have the music sheets, so I wrote an arrangement again, without having a knowledge how to do it.
Award winning violin player, Sofija Longo, is one of the rare artists I know who likes to improvise with every music genre and every possible ensemble. Thanks to Sofija and her crazy idea of arrangements, I started to work on Solo violin improvisation for Hip hop music,
There is one String quartet from New York City that loves to play Happy Sheet Music arrangements with Latin character, the Dolce Ensemble.
“Bailando” (Enrique Iglesias), “Vivir mi vida” (Marc Anthony), “Lambada” (Kaoma), “Spain” (Chick Corea) and tango of course, “Maintenant” (Rupa and the April Fishes), those are just few of Happy Sheet Music arrangements on their repertoire and you can hear them here on their Youtube channel:
Deux Escargots (eng. Two Snails) is electric string duo of Violin and Violoncello from Novi Sad, Serbia. Two artists Bojana and Nina, colleagues from Academy of Arts, wanted to play something different, unusual, and after all, music is shared with same passion.
