Description of the event
The founder of the duo 2Cellos, now known as HAUSER, is announcing his long-awaited, first-ever world solo tour REBEL WITH CELLO. In Poland, he will play twice: on November 3, 2023, at the TAURON Arena Kraków and on November 5, 2023, at the ERGO ARENA, on the borderline between Gdańsk and Sopot.
The organizer of the concerts is the Prestige MJM agency.
REBEL WITH CELLO or rather bad boy classics is a musical sensation of several years. It is not without reason that he is called a visionary, breaking all the formulaic musical rules. His virtuoso and spiritual playing style has been recognized in the most prestigious national and international instrumental competitions. When he decided to create a completely new quality for the classics and with his cello went beyond the rigid framework of the philharmonic, he achieved unprecedented success. He is a classically educated musician and has been associating his future with classical music... for a time. Similarly to Luca Sulić, with whom he later founded the band 2Cellos, he had come to the conclusion that he have wanted to feel the atmosphere of a great stage, not necessarily the classic one. This is how the idea to arrange Michael Jackson's hit "Smooth Criminal" was born. Stjepan Hauser and Luca Sulić posted their version online and... they have become a sensation on the Internet. Then, there were other sensational and energetic remakes of the hits of Nirvana, Muse, and AC / DC. The young cellists impressed Sir Elton John himself, who took the duo as support artists on his world tour in 2012. That was the first time the musicians came to Poland, where they played in front of the British man in Atlas Arena in Łódź. They returned in November 2017 already having the position of world stars, hence it is not surprising that the tickets for the Warsaw performance had sold out a few months earlier. Less than half a year later, the 2Cellos duo performed in Krakow and Pomerania and in the filled to the brim Atlas Arena in Łódź in May this year. With their dynamic playing, the cellists have won the hearts of audiences around the world. Dominant, but also seductive and completely crazy, energetic and romantic – this is the role that Stjepan Hauser took on in 2Cellos. Starting a solo career was, therefore, only a matter of time.
As HAUSER now, he has an established position as one of the most important instrumentalists of the twenty-first century. His playing style is a unique combination of sublime cello sounds, having beauty and elegance, with real rock musculature and heavy metal energy. HAUSER has a huge repertoire base which is constantly expanding. From Shostakovich and Tchaikovsky to Morricone and Zimmer, Lady Gaga or the Rolling Stones.
The dynamic and electric game has enabled HAUSER to take the world by storm. The cellist's career is followed by nearly 15 million fans on Facebook, Instagram and Youtube. He is a true musical phenomenon and a stage animal: on the one hand, an capable virtuoso, and on the other, an artist beaming with pure magnetism. Undoubtedly, his ability to unite generations of music lovers cannot be denied.
