When this duo talks about the modern canon, they mean Rihanna, not Philip Glass. So if you're looking for a way into classical music, this project, which seeks to replicate pop songs as uncontroversially as possible, won't help. And if you're a classical head needing a brush-up on "what the public likes," you're best advised to hear the tunes in their original versions. But if you've been longing for a faithful two-cello arrangement of "We Found Love" (plus thumping backbeat) or "Highway to Hell" (with a bit of light distortion and some Steve Vai guest-vamping), consider your prayers answered.
