My Track of the Week: Computer Love (Kraftwerk) as played by The Balanescu Quartet

I was watching the second part of BBC 4's "Sex and Sensibility: The Allure of Art Nouveau" when my ears pricked up because the music playing over the end credits, performed by a string quartet, seemed strangely familiar.
30 seconds of keyboard tapping later and I'd found it:
Having delved deeper I'm alarmed at how reminiscent of "The Lark Ascending" the quartet's version of Pocket Calculator is.

Disturbing to note I found this music 10 years after it was released.

That's lovely. It's surprizing how well it works.

That is lovely music, I do curious about the same documentary of the episode 1 about Paris, do you know who is the artist or the name of the track of the music in the beginning?
