... and looking for an hour and 40 minutes worth of mind blowing entertainment, please watch this video of the 2Cellos Concert in Verona, Italy in 2016. The first 8 minutes is typically what you'd expect of a cello performance then the rest of the concert is AHHMAAZZING! These two young men are incredibly talented. Enjoy!

Saw these guys on America's Got Talent a few years back, and yes, they are a real trip.

If you like Hauser on the Cello, watch him and his girlfriend/wife do these duets:

Something Stupid

I Will Always Love You

and this solo by her - Benedetta Caretta:
Unchained Melody

I guess they were new in 2014 or 15. I am not sure what the rules are, but if you do a Google on most of the acts, you will find that they've been around for quite a while, some of them having done several "Got Talent" shows, like Britain. So I believe it has more to do with lack of public awareness. I mean, there was one Canadian comic I have seen for at least a decade on Just For Laughs from Montreal who almost won two years ago.

Amazing voice! Thanks for introducing to Benedetta but Hauser on the cello playing Led Zeppelin and The Rolling Stones was more my cup of tea.

Thanks, ferret. Didn't watch the whole thing, but I love it. Gonna send the link to a young cello player I know.

Here's a link to the 1955 movie (free) that featured Unchained Melody and was nominated for an oscar for it. Small budget prison movie shot in Chino and looks like a promotional movie for Chino. Ten years before the Righteous Brothers. Worth 1;15 of your time.

I lived in the Chino area (Ontario, Calif next city over) in the 80's and had to look at your link! Oh, and FYI, unrelated... today is William Tecumseh Sherman 201st Birthday. Showed up in a this day in history on Bing. cheers
