Editors’ Notes

Two other popular instrumental acts come to mind when hearing 2CELLOS' self-titled debut. Like ukulele virtuoso Jake Shimabukuro, 2CELLOS interpret popular modern songs usually not associated with their instruments, which are sometimes manipulated through effects. And like flamenco rockers Gabriela y Rodrigo, cellists Stjepan Hauser and Luka Sulic frequently take up complementary roles, utilizing separate playing techniques. The classically trained Croatian pair first teamed up for a homemade recording of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal,” presented in rerecorded form here along with the King of Pop’s more mellow “Human Nature.” Two other artists are represented twice: U2 (with the opener “Where the Streets Have No Name” and the closer “With or Without You”) and Sting (with “Fragile” and the bonus track “Fields of Gold”). “Misirlou” (heard in Pulp Fiction) is brought back to its Greek folk-dancing roots, while on Nine Inch Nails’ “Hurt,” haunting legato contrasts with ghostly pizzicato playing.

2CELLOS

I'm a Yo-Yo Ma fan myself but you've got to love these two guys for what they get out of this most beautiful of instruments. From the frantic Smooth Criminal, Coldplay's uplifting Viva La Vida, to the haunting beauty of Fields of Gold, With or Without You, Fragile, Human Nature, Hurt - it's a must buy for Cello fans, young and old.

Completely satisfied!

This album is such a fantastic compilation of great music on one of the most wonderous and beautiful instruments around. There is such a wide variance in song type that there is something on here to please everybody. A must buy album that is well worth the money! These boys have really done both the music and the instruments justice. Looking forward to hearing more fantastic covers by these engaging cellists :)

Exciting cellos

This is an extraordinary album. The arrangements of popular songs into new forms that defy categorization is constantly startling, and the playing by the two cellists is a revelation. They are fine cellists, not necessarily the greatest, but certainly the most exciting I have heard for some time. Showy, exuberant, not always subtle, but well worth a listen for some bravura playing.

Biography

Crafty, Croatian cello duo 2Cellos first garnered public attention after uploading a cello-only cover of Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal" to YouTube. Formed by longtime friends and seasoned players Luka Šulic and Stjepan Hauser, the pair inked a deal with Sony Masterworks in 2010 and released their eponymous debut album the following year, which featured cello-centric covers of tracks from the likes of U2 ("Where the Streets Have No Name"), Kings of Leon ("Use Somebody"), and Nine Inch Nails ("Hurt"),...
