Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser are a Croatian duo that is called, 2CELLOS. Together the two cellists have been creating a catalog of musical adventures that combine the world of classical with the well-known melodies of the rock, pop and movie soundtracks. "We've always said we want to break down pre-conceptions about the cello and the boundaries around musical genres," says 2CELLOS about the range of styles included in their repertoire. The duet is releasing an album titled, Let There Be Cello. Co-produced by Sulic and Hauser, as well as Filip Vidovic. Known for their electric live performances, 2CELLOS is now gearing up to take their newest album on the road for their first-ever U.S. arena tour, which is set to kick off February 2019. Let There Be Cello showcases the duet's brilliant aptitude for crafting and reinventing music of any genre into a stunning display of virtuosity through the lens of classical techniques and agility. That's the short of it!

The album has an outstanding reach of material, including pop hits ("Perfect" by Ed Sheeran, "Despacito" by Luis Fonsi) to rock anthems ("Seven Nation Army" by The White Stripes, "Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor), from celebrated classics ("Imagine" by John Lennon, "Hallelujah" by Leonard Cohen) to never-before-heard originals ("Concept2," "Cadenza"). Let There Be Cello takes classical instrumentation to new heights for a listening experience unlike any other.
