Bohemian Rhapsody was originally released by Queen on their 1976 album A Night at the Opera and as one of the biggest selling singles of all time. It tells the story of someone who has committed murder and describes the torment that is going on in his head. This performance is an official part of the 40th anniversary celebration of Bohemian Rhapsody and appeared on the BBC. This version was arranged by Charlie Piper, a Royal Academy of Music composition alumnus, for string quartet. It is a great instrumental version where all of the famous themes are clear and shows the true versatility of the song as it stands just as strong as a classical piece as it does as a rock song.
