Classical Tribute to Rush[Through the Prism: The Classical Tribute to Rush]

Reader John R alerted me that the producers of various string quartet Rush tribute albums and last year's Piano Tribute to Rush, Vitamin Records, will release A Classical Tribute to Rush on April 3rd. From the Vitamin Records website:

What can be said about Rush that hasn't been said already? They have won more praise and awards for their work than can be catalogued here. One of the top-selling rock bands of all time, Rush has one of the largest and most dedicated fanbases in the world. And, they have been going non-stop for over thirty years. Yeah, that sums it up quite nicely.

Since Exit Stage Right: The String Quartet Tribute to Rush, Vitamin Records has raised the stakes for paying tribute to Canada's favorite sons. The first album was a smash amongst fans and was soon followed by the ambitious tribute to Rush's magnum opus, 2112. More hit tributes were to come and with each record Vitamin surprised the fans with their dedication to the craftsmanship of the godfathers of modern, progressive music. With this collection, Vitamin has highlighted 14 of the best tracks from these tributes. It is an essential collection for any Rush fan and any fan of Vitamin Records� captivating tributes.

And here's the tracklist:

1 2112 Overture
2 Xanadu
3 Closer to the Heart

5 The Spirit of Radio
