2CELLOS, music's most electric and dynamic instrumental
duo, go to the movies for their new album Score. Bringing
2CELLOS' game-changing sound and style to the most popular
melodies ever written for classic and contemporary movies
and television…. and they now take that sound on tour.
An international sensation, 2Cellos unique 2014 video
version of "Thunderstruck" is currently rocking YouTube
with over 90 million views and their other more recent
videos following closely behind. Croatian cellists Luka
Sulic and Stjepan Hauser have created three high-energy
albums for Sony Music Masterworks. Score finds them
exploring a more traditional sound-world. "The album
represents some of our favorite pieces of music by our
favorite film composers. Having the opportunity to arrange
them for cello whilst working with the world class London
Symphony Orchestra has been a dream come true," says
Stjepan. The album opens with an arrangement of Ramin
Djawadi's melodies that score Game of Thrones, culminating
in the bold Main Title theme, in which the stirring sound
of cellos announces each of what may be the most eagerly
awaited episodes in contemporary television.
The vocal beauty of the cello's sound is a perfect match
for a brace of romantic themes. They 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 "Cavatina" heard in The Deer Hunter.
2CELLOS have forged a signature style that breaks down the
boundaries between genres of music, from classical and film
music to pop and rock. As impressive when playing Bach and
Vivaldi as they are when rocking out, Sulic and Hauser know
no limits when it comes to performing live. They have sold
out shows around the globe and also performed with Sir
Elton John as part of his band, as well as opening his
shows to rapturous acclaim.
"…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…"
- Elton John
