Music sample

"Victory" is the debut single by the string quartet Bond, from the band's debut album, Born. This single was taken from the UK Classical Charts because it was considered too "pop" to qualify as a classical song.

Origin[edit]

The main violin is inspired by The Barber of Seville's opening written by Gioachino Rossini.
