Something Lovely

It’s no secret or surprise that I’m a big fan of the Finnish group Apocalyptica—I love orchestral instruments and I love Metallica, and frankly, there are times when only heavy metal cellos will do.

Luka Šulić and Stjepan Hauser, who perform under the name 2CELLOS, can seriously rock—try their versions of Smells Like Teen Spirit and Supermassive Black Hole—and their classical performances are frankly gorgeous.

And sometimes they team up with musicians like  the incomparable Zucchero Fornaciari to produce something like Il Libro Dell’Amore:

Beautiful music, lovely lyrics, and an excellent video—can’t ask for more than that.
