I had a fantastic time at the 2 Cellos gig last Saturday in Madrid. It was an open air concert at the botanical gardens at the University of Madrid, and the 2 Cellos came on just after sunset, and because of a summer heatwave, the outside temperatures were still around 28C at that time of night.
In case you are not familiar with this duo, they are two rather handsome Croatian lads, who play a mix of classical, pop, rock and heavy metal on, yes you guessed it, 2 cellos! Starting off gently with one of Bach’s Cello Suites, this was followed by some Spanish guitar played on cello (the crowd breaking into football chant “Olé Olé Olé Oléeeeee”, with the two lads joining in on their cellos!), and they then ripped into the heavier stuff like AC/DC, The Prodigy, Michael Jackson, Nirvana and Led Zeppelin.
These guys are truly amazing, and if they come to a town near you, I highly recommend you go and see them.
