Hauser: Rebel With A Cello at Ravinia Festival

Since that fateful moment when he decided to create a new, musical experience out of the long and established traditions of classical, pop and rock music, HAUSER has been playing arena concerts all over the world, defying the conventions of the established music business. From his now iconic rendition of “Smooth Criminal,” the song that launched him as an internet sensation and, where he was established as the founding member of the duo 2Cellos, he has captured the hearts and minds of millions.

HAUSER’S performance style may only be described as electric; a unique pairing of cello pyrotechnics that align beauty, elegance and true rock muscle. Fueled by a repertoire base that is as wide and expansive as Lady Gaga is from Tchaikovsky or Shakira is from Shostakovich, HAUSER is the dynamic cellist performing all of it and taking the world by storm — for what other classically trained cellist can say they have toured with Elton John?

Whether you find him collaborating with other artistic legends, like Andrea Bocelli or the Red Hot Chili Peppers, or, appearing in his own, stunning music video series, Alone Together, which features performances from his Billboard chart topping album, “CLASSIC," HAUSER consistently pushes the limits of his cello and his music-making. He is a phenomenon that is one part virtuoso and the other, that of sheer, animal magnetism. For HAUSER’s fans, perhaps it is simply his ability to unify generations of music lovers.
