Husband And Wife Perform 'The Sound Of Silence' Duet On Piano And Cello

The talented husband and wife team of Brooklyn Duo perform a classical arrangement of ‘The Sound Of Silence.’


Simon & Garfunkel originally released this song in 1964. Since that time, many artists have lent their voices to the tune. One of the most well known covers comes from the rock band, Disturbed, in 2015.

Recently, a cappella group Pentatonix released their own version their own version and it skyrocketed in popularity. Today, we’re hearing an entirely new rendition, with a nod to classical music, and it’s absolutely stunning.

“Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence”

Marnie and Patrick Laird are a husband and wife team that has risen in Internet fame for their stunning classical crossovers. Both Marnie and Patrick are classically trained musicians who met while attending a Chamber Music Festival in 2006.

Known by their stage name, Brooklyn Duo, these two have been making viral performances for years including stunning renditions of ‘Shallow’ and ‘Hallelujah.’ Today, they’re taking on ‘The Sound Of Silence’ for a one-of-a-kind arrangement using the cello and piano.

As Marnie sits at the piano, Patrick is in front with the cello. And as they play this iconic song, it’s truly an entirely new experience.

I just love this mix of classical and rock that gives homage to the original piece. Who else had to listen to this one again?
