Art-For-Art’s-Sake Theatre: 2Cellos “Thunderstruck”

Time once again for our usual midweek feature.

Remember two weeks ago when we showed those Finnish hillbillies going Appalachian on heavy metal? How could you forget a thing like that? Well, they're not the only ones on the headbanger bandwagon. Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hausar, appearing as the duo 2Cellos, go for Baroque their own rendition of the AC/DC hit “Thunderstruck” in front of an authentic period audience.

Too bad they couldn't have played it on authentic period instruments. After all, the violoncello as we know it today did not come into prominence until roughly the mid-18th century. Don't ask me why.
