Get the Tempo of the tracks from Byrne, Moran, Lurie & Torke (1992) by Bălănescu Quartet. This album has an average beat per minute of BPM (slowest/fastest tempos:, BPM). See its BPM profile at the bottom of the page. Tracklist Byrne, Moran, Lurie & Torke. 1. 2.

Disc: 1. High Life For Strs. Of the four composition, only Moran's "Music from the Towers of the Moon" (derived from his opera "From the Towers of the Moon") disappoints. Other than a one-minute ear-catching passage of raining pizzicatti at the end of the third movement (starting at 4:25), it is only "pretty", sentimental and sweet like a sugar candy - enjoyable to have melting in your mouth for two minutes, but not very substantial (and not very good for the teeth on a longer basis). It would make good film music, I guess.

Since its formation in 1987, the Balanescu Quartet has acquired a reputation as one of the world's leading contemporary music ensembles with a worldwide cult following.

The Balanescu Quartet is an avant-garde string quartet founded in 1987 by Alexander Bălănescu that achieved fame through the release of several complex cover versions of songs by German experimental electronic music band Kraftwerk on their album Possessed. The quartet are mainly notable for their very distinctive style of music, which encompasses odd time rhythms, sound dissonances and complex arrangements.
