Stranger Things Cello Medley

Cellists Nicholas Yee, Adam Caulfield, and Katherine Pernal perform a medley of tunes from the Stranger Things soundtrack, created by Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein. While the main theme is the most recognizable, the entire performance is compelling.

Battle of the Strings

Battle of the Strings

Guitarist Joe Bonamassa takes on cellist Tina Guo in an epic speed battle. They lead off with Flight of the Bumblebee then head straight into the track Woke Up Dreaming. We couldn’t pick a clear winner, other than the audience at Carnegie Hall.

Projection Mapped Cello

Projection Mapped Cello

Musician Sol Gabetta performs Elgar’s Cello Concerto in E minor on her 300-year-old cello, embellished with digitally-projected images which stay precisely aligned with her instrument, even as she moves, thanks to the wonders of infrared tracking tech.

Burn The Witch: Cello Cover

Burn The Witch: Cello Cover

A fantastically rich and layered cover version of Radiohead’s recent track Burn The Witch, played on cello and cajón by Break of Reality. Seriously, we’d love to hear Thom Yorke’s vocals combined with these guys performance.

Whole Lotta Love vs. Beethoven’s 5th

Whole Lotta Love vs. Beethoven’s 5th

The 2CELLOS take on Led Zeppelin and Beethoven’s classics in another one of their highly energetic stage performances. Or rather, two stage performances. Also, these guys must go through bows and strings like water.

Say It Ain’t Cello

Say It Ain’t Cello

Somebody’s Heine’ is crowding our icebox. An suprising and awesome cover version of Weezer’s 1994 classic Say It Ain’t So performed on cello and djembe by Break of Reality. Be sure to check out their frenetic System of a Down B.Y.O.B. cover too.

2CELLOS: Hysteria

2CELLOS: Hysteria

Cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser crank the energy level up to 9000 for this amazing, frenetic performance of the Muse classic Hysteria, done as only 2CELLOS can do it. One of the numerous epic tracks on their new album Celloverse.

2CELLOS: Full Concert

2CELLOS: Full Concert

Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser show off their impeccable cello skills in this concert recorded at last summer’s Exit Festival. The show starts off quietly enough but escalates at 6:26 and doesn’t let go. Put your headphones on and enjoy.

The Trooper Overture

Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser of 2CELLOS perform a head-banging medley which combines The William Tell Overture with Iron Maiden’s The Trooper. We’re surprised their bows have any hairs left on them by the time it’s over.

Animals as Leaders on Cello

Animals as Leaders on Cello

If you haven’t heard Animals as Leaders, you’re missing out on some seriously face-melting shreds. The ridiculous technicality of a song like Cafo is what makes Chino M’s cello cover so awesome.

Yo-Yo Ma and Lil Buck

Yo-Yo Ma and Lil Buck

There’s something strangely compelling about the way that the classic cello of Yo-Yo Ma perfectly complements the smooth moves of Los Angeles based dancer Charles “Lil Buck” Riley.

Born to be Vanilla

Born to be Vanilla

While it’s not at rockin’ as Steppenwolf’s original Born to be Wild, we’re quite taken with this quirky performance of the song by Japan’s Vanilla Mood, performed on violin, cello and KEYTAR. More here.

Not into classical music? Well once you hear the Vitamin String Quartet kicking out their rendition of Daft Punk’s Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger, you just might be. More cool string covers here.

Smooth Criminal Cello Duet

Smooth Criminal Cello Duet

If we could bottle and sell just a tiny amount of the passion that Luka Šulić and Stjepan Hauser have playing their cellos in this gorgeous looking and sounding video, we’d surely be rich by now. Bravo!
