Historic Asolo Theater

A singularly unique ensemble, the Rastrelli Cello Quartet has been thrilling audiences with their rendering of non-traditional programming since 2002. Founder and artistic director Kira Kraftzoff formed the ensemble with a mission to perform music “between the genres.”

This varied and unique program borrows music featured in eleven of the iconic James Bond film series, including Casino Royale, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, From Russia with Love, Diamonds are Forever and more. Featuring songs including Dave Brubeck’s Blue Rondo a la Turk to Johann Strauss’ overture to One Night in Venice, music from Puccini’s Tosca, and even Leroy Anderson’s popular Syncopated Clock. The program kicks off with Sergio Drabkin’s Overture 007.
