2cellos, music's most electric and dynamic instrumental duo, go to the movies for their new Portrait/Sony Music Masterworks album 'Score!' Bringing 2cellos' game-changing sound and style to the most popular melodies ever written for classic and contemporary movies and television.
    
An international sensation since their unique video version of Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal" rocked YouTube with millions of hits in 2011, the Croatian cellists Luka Šuli? and Stjepan Hauser have created three high-energy albums for Sony Music Masterworks. 'Score' finds them exploring a more traditional sound-world. Joining them here – to provide the ideal aural backdrop to their virtuosity – is the London Symphony Orchestra, with conductor/arranger Robin Smith at the helm. Šulic and Hauser also co-produced 'Score' with Nick Patrick (Elvis Presley/Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Russell Watson, Il Divo, Plácido Domingo).

"We love movie music! This album represents some of our favourite pieces of music by our favourite film composers. Having the opportunity to arrange them for cello whilst working with the world class London Symphony Orchestra has been a dream come true," says Stjepan.

The album opens with an arrangement of Ramin Djawadi's melodies that score Game of Thrones, culminating in the bold Main Title theme, in which the stirring sound of cellos announces each of what may be the most eagerly awaited episodes in contemporary television.

Themes that drove some of the biggest epics in movie history are also featured in fresh new treatments – favourite Oscar-winning themes from James Horner's score for Titanic ("My Heart Will Go On"), John Williams' score for Schindler's List and Vangelis's score for Chariots Of Fire, as well as "For the Love of a Princess' from Braveheart (also by Horner); "May It Be" from The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring (introduced in the film by Enya); and the inspiring "Now We Are Free" from Gladiator, by the film's composer Hans Zimmer, Lisa Gerrard and Klaus Badelt.

The vocal beauty of the cello's sound is a perfect match for a brace of romantic themes. They include the Henry Mancini/Johnny Mercer song "Moon River' from Breakfast At Tiffany's ("Moon River'); Ennio Morricone's beautiful themes for Cinema Paradiso and Malena; Nino Rota's love theme for The Godfather; Francis Lai's Oscar-winning theme from Love Story; Hans Zimmer's theme from Rain Man; and Stanley Myers' haunting "Cavatina" heard in The Deer Hunter.

2cellos have forged a signature style that breaks down the boundaries between genres of music, from classical and film music to pop and rock. As impressive when playing Bach and Vivaldi as they are when rocking out, Šulic and Hauser know no limits when it comes to performing live. They have sold out shows around the globe and also performed with Sir Elton John as part of his band, as well as opening his shows to rapturous acclaim.
