The Croatian duo of Luka Šulić and Stjepan Hauser, better known as 2CELLOS, return with an all-new album, Let There Be Cello. A follow-up to the 2017 release of Score, Let There Be Cello finds the pair exploring a diverse catalogue with their signature boundary-breaking playing style.

“We’ve always said we want to break down pre-conceptions about the cello and the boundaries around musical genres,” says 2CELLOS on their latest project.  “This album demonstrates that. We take inspiration from all sources, from pop smashes to timeless classical music, from classic rock through to our enduring love of film music. This album has the lot – including some 2CELLOS’ originals. There are no rules, just let there be cello!”

Co-produced by Šulić and Hauser themselves as well as Filip Vidovic, Let There Be Cello is a showcase of 2CELLOS’ exceptional talent for reinventing the music of any genre. The collection includes their take on the latest pop hits, including Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” and “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi, a fan-favourite rendition that has garnered over 30 million views on 2CELLOS’ YouTube alone.  Known for bringing their explosive playing style to some of rock’s biggest anthems, 2CELLOS make no exception on Let There Be Cello, which features favourites “Eye Of The Tiger” by Survivor and The White Stripes’ iconic “Seven Nation Army,” which the pair most recently performed on-field to open May’s UEFA Champions League final in Ukraine.  Taking their classical instrumentation to new heights, 2CELLOS round out the newest album with everything from celebrated classics (“Imagine” by John Lennon, “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen) to never-before-heard original compositions (“Concept2,” “Cadenza”) for a listening experience unlike any other.
The 2CELLOS will be on tour in Australia November 23rd Perth, November 24th Melbourne, November 26th Adelaide, November 28th Sydney, November 30th Gold Coast and December 2nd Brisbane.

2CELLOS, music’s most electric and dynamic instrumental duo, go to the movies for their new Portrait/Sony Music Masterworks album Score, available on March 17, 2017.

 

Bringing 2CELLOS’ game-changing sound and style to the most popular melodies ever written for classic and contemporary movies and television, Score finds Croatian cellists Luka Šulić and Stjepan Hauser exploring a more traditional sound-world. Joining them here – to provide the ideal aural backdrop to their virtuosity – is the London Symphony Orchestra, with conductor/arranger Robin Smith at the helm. Šulić and Hauser also co-produced Score with Nick Patrick (Elvis Presley/Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Russell Watson, Il Divo, Plácido Domingo).

 

Themes that drove some of the biggest blockbusters in film and television history are featured in fresh new treatments – including an arrangement of Ramin Djawadi’s melodies that score Game of Thrones, Oscar-winning themes from James Horner’s Titanic (“My Heart Will Go On”), John Williams’ Schindler’s List and Vangelis’s Chariots of Fire, as well as “For the Love of a Princess” from Braveheart (also by Horner); “May It Be” from The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (introduced in the film by Enya); and the inspiring “Now We Are Free” from Gladiator, by the film’s composer Hans Zimmer, Lisa Gerrard and Klaus Badelt.

 

The vocal beauty of the cello’s sound is also a perfect match for a brace of romantic themes, which include the Henry Mancini/Johnny Mercer song “Moon River” from Breakfast at Tiffany’s; Ennio Morricone’s beautiful themes for Cinema Paradiso and Malena; Nino Rota’s love theme for The Godfather; Francis Lai’s Oscar-winning theme from Love Story; Hans Zimmer’s theme from Rain Man; and Stanley Myers’ haunting “Cantilena” heard in The Deer Hunter.

 

The 2CELLOS Sydney concert at the Sydney Opera House with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra last December was recorded and will be played on Foxtel ARTS on March 31st at 7.30pm.
