As quickly as you can, name the most widely used rock and roll instrument you can think of. What came to mind? Many of you probably thought of the electric guitar, but what about the cello?
The Croatian duo of Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, also known as 2CELLOS,
are taking this classical string instrument from the symphony to the rock and roll arena. The two classically trained musicians met in music school when they were still teenagers. For a time, they were even considered competitors because they competed against each other in music contests. Both cellists found that it was hard to survive as classical musicians. This would all change with a simple YouTube video.
克羅埃西亞雙人組路卡•蘇利克和斯傑潘•豪瑟，也就是大家所熟知的大提琴雙傑，正把這種古典弦樂器從交響樂帶往搖滾樂的殿堂。這兩位經過正統訓練的音樂家在還是青少年時就在音樂學校認識了。兩人一度被視為是競爭對手，因為當時他們在音樂比賽中互相較量。這兩位大提琴家都發現當古典音樂家很難生存下去。然而這些都將因僅僅一支 YouTube 影片而改變。
