Dunja Lavrova - Rock Violin Tracks:

NEWS: Dunja's latest Rock Violin project has had to be launched unexpectedly-early due to completely unforeseen circumstances (which is why it does not yet have an official name!). Please bear with us as we are working on a new page dedicated to it.

In brief:

The project sees Dunja reinvent herself as a lead rock violinist with the support of a rock band, but with a twist: she performs everyone's favourite rock classics with a band and and a string quartet. The two studio tracks of Dunja's arrangements of AC/DC's 'Thunderstruck' and Nirvana's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' are currently available for purchase as MP3 files for limited time only. 

Dunja plays all the string parts on the recordings, which were produced by Sean Kennedy (who also performs bass guitar and drums on the record). 

Watch the videos of Dunja performing these tracks live to her backing track below.

Please use "contact me" form on this website to get more information about the purchase of these tracks.

My Dusty Gramophone


Debut solo album by Dunja Lavrova

Colourful selection of violin encores, featuring the familiar, the forgotten and the rare - from the world of popular classics. 

“My Dusty Gramophone”  is not an ordinary album. 

It was recorded in the style of mid-20th century: in live takes, with minimum reverb, on vintage equipment, mastered on analog tape. 

Typical to the style of old studio records, the microphones were set up very close to the instrument which allows the listener to get up-close-and-personal with Dunja.

The album, which includes 19 tracks in variety of styles, takes you on a trip through Dunja's musical heritage and memories whilst bringing the sound of the old records to the modern world.
