The Croatian duo on violoncellos will pause touring with Eric Clapton across Australia and China to perform in Belgrade’s Sava Centre on December 28th.

Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser have played cello since childhood and finished their studies in 2011; Luka graduated from London’s Royal Academy of Music, Stjepan from the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester.

The duo, who became popular after an admired performance of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” on YouTube, will perform songs from their first album “2CELLOS - Luka Sulic & Stjepan Hauser” (Sony Classical/Menart).

Among 12 songs on the album that they will perform in Belgrade are remakes of hits such as “Smells Like Teen Spirit” (Nirvana), “With Or Without You” (U2), “Welcome To The Jungle” (Guns n’ Roses), “The Resistance” (Muse), “Use Somebody” (Kings of Leon) and “Viva La Vida” (Coldplay),

Kolarac Hall in Belgrade will also have an interesting New Year music programme including jazz and classical concerts.

On December 28th the RTS Big Band will play jazz standards, while the soloists will be Serbian pop singers Lena Kovacevic, Aleksandra Radovic, Mari Mari and Jelena Tomasevic.

One day later a traditional performance of violin player Stefan Milenkovic and Gudaci Svetog Djordja will take place.

On January 10th Aleksey Igudesman and Hyung-ki Joo, two classical musicians who have taken the world by storm with their unique and hilarious theatrical shows, which combine comedy with classical music and popular culture, will also perform at Kolarac.

Ingudesman & Joo will perform their “BIG nightmare music” that includes pieces like Mozart Bond, Alla Molto Turca and Cleaning vs. Riverdancing amped up by the Belgrade Philharmonic orchestra.

On top of priceless adaptations of pieces from their duo-show, “BIG Nightmare Music” boasts several sketches tailor-made for a symphony orchestra.
