2Cellos is a classical crossover act. The duo — coming from Zagreb in Croatia — started recording together in 2011. In the time since their debut, 2Cellos have released 3 different studio albums featuring many popular rock covers. Artists to whom they’ve made tribute include AC/DC, U2, and most notably Michael Jackson.
Fusing the disciplined talent of classical music with the passionate appeal of rock and pop is what 2Cellos are all about. The two cellists are both products of some of the world’s finest classical music schools. Luka, a Slovenian by birth, studied in both Vienna and Zagreb. Croatian Stjepan Hauer also studied in Zagreb as well as at London’s Trinity College. They were first brought together during a master class in Croatia during their teenage years and stayed in contact afterwards. Their shared love of both classical and mainstream music brought them closer and closer together and gave them the first ideas for a cover project. Their skill and enthusiasm has resulted in a remarkable career founded on nothing more than passion and two extremely talented cellists.
