2Cellos --> Amazing Musicians <-- Check these awesome bow shredders out!

by ForumGuru Banned 7 replies
I have been listening to these great musicians since they put their first stuff out and they are simply amazing. They play everything from classical to rock but since I am a pretty big rock fan I will embed a few of their rock renditions below. They have covered so much great stuff it's hard to pick just a few and those of you that listen to them know exactly what I am talking about!

2CELLOSlive - YouTube

They are coming to Chicago in February 2015 and l can't wait to see that show!

Enjoy!

    LOL. I watched the first one. Love it! The shocked reactions of the audience were priceless. It must have been lots of fun for the actors.

    If you prefer your stuff a tad bit slower...


    Slower you say? This one they have almost made their own --> not much Chili Peppers left but still quite nice.

    If you enjoy the 2Cellos stuff and you have not heard Apocalyptica then you might want to check out this album they did covering Metallica way back in 1996.


    These guys have been together since 1993 and I believe they are releasing their 8th studio album in 2015.

    Cheers

    Good stuff, Don. I wonder if they got their inspiration from Sollima.

      Bingo, you win the prize --> indeed they did, Dennis! Question posed to Luka Sulic & Stjepan Hauserin (2Cellos) in an interview just a couple of weeks ago...

      There is another cello group that started off with cover songs, of Metallica mainly – the Finnish band Apocalyptica. Do you know them? Were they an inspiration for you?
      Answer...

      We know about them of course, they do metal music only! But what we do is completely different from what they do, we play rock, pop, classical, film, all the variety... We were inspired by a great Italian cellist Giovanni Sollima, who is a real virtuoso, and who started to treat cello like a harmonic instruments and started creating new ways of playing, which was very inspiring for us to see.

      Sollima is great, he played with Yo-Yo Ma and the Chicago Symphony back in late January and early February but I missed all three nights. Thanks for posting.

      Cheers

        Hey, how about that! Their playing reminded me of the Sollima video I posted, so I wondered if he was an influence. I didn't expect an answer, so it was a nice surprise to find there was a connection.

        Thanks, Don.
