2CELLOS, Malta Arts Festival 2014
Young Croatian Cellist Duo, 2CELLOS, consisting of Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, take the cello to a new level. Their music is a mix between different genres, from classical and film music to pop and rock. Their live performances are an impressive show of talent, playing Bach, Vivaldi and AC/DC.
The winning duo have been playing the cello since their childhood. In 2011, Sulic graduated from the Royal Academy of Music in London and Hauser graduated from the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester.
The two young cellists achieved success in 2011 when their version of Michael Jackson’s ‘Smooth Criminal’ became a massive viral sensation on YouTube. Following this, they struck a record deal with Sony Masterworks and joined Sir Elton John on his worldwide tour.
Luka and Stjepan have collaborated with artists such as Red Hot Chili Peppers, Queens of the Stone Age and George Michael. They released their second album in January 2013, called ‘IN2ITION’, produced by legendary Bob Ezrin and featuring guests such as Elton John, Naya Rivera and Zucherro.
“…Go and see them live, because it really is astonishing! I can’t remember seeing anything as exciting as them since I saw Jimi Hendrix live back in the 60’s…”
2CELLOS will be performing in Pjazza Teatru Rjal, Republic Street, Valletta on July 14, thanks to the Malta Arts Festival .
