ZAGREB, 31 Janaury 2020 – Croatia’s world-famous cello duo are set to return next year after a break pursuing their individual careers.
Speaking to RTL Direkt, Luka Sulic confirmed that the duo will reunite in 2021 after splitting last year.
“We are returning for our 10th anniversary next year. There will not be the volume of concerts like we did till now but we will mark a decade since our formation in a nice way. After that, we will dedicate time again to our individual projects as well as 2Cellos,” Sulic said.
Sulic and Stjepan Hauser decided to part ways and focus on their own projects after their gruelling 36-show tour of Australia, New Zealand and the United States last year after 8 years together.
“That was insane. Life, rhythm and pace were murderous. We really overdid it. 200 flights a year, constant concerts, traveling on all continents and filming. We simply just have to get away from it,” Hauser said at the time.
Both Sulic and Hauser have been successful with their own projects over the last year. Hauser will embark on his first ever solo tour which will begin in April 2020. Hauser, who will be accompanied by an orchestra conducted by Robert Ziegler, will start his solo tour on 2 April in Paris, before visiting Berlin, London, Tallinn, Budapest, Brussels, Amsterdam, and Milan. Late last year, he released his first official single, Swan Lake with the London Symphony Orchestra.
Sulic has also been enjoying success out on his own. At the end of last year, Sulic released his first solo album “Vivaldi: The Four Seasons” which immediately went to number one on the Billboard charts for most sold classical album. On 1 January, over 800 million people in China watched his live TV performance. Sulic is about to set off on his world tour and will start in Zagreb with a concert at Vatroslav Lisinski concert hall on 5 February.
