I know I’m totally late to the Stjepan Hauser party, but watching him have a great time with the cello is a reminder of how much fun it is to do this thing we do, and also of the fruits of discipline. It is unmistakable when someone has worked their ass off.

  1. Thanks Emily! This is so much fun. Sulic is a tad mean–particularly concerning Casals, but he is a fantastic mimic.

  2. Stirring stuff indeed! I look forward to seeing you in their next clip Emily!

    BTW, what are your thoughts on the Luis & Clark cellos?

  3. EF: I think it's Stjepan who is the mimic, and I agree that it may be a little mean spirited…But he's a young guy. Let's see if he tempers it with age. What I can't get over is how his technique changes depending on who he's imitating.

    Anna: I like your sense of optimism. If you run into either of them, let them know I'm looking to do a 3 cello cover of "For Whom the Bell Tolls".

    ….but really, I already have one for "Bizarre Love Triangle". 🙂

    xx,

  4. Very funny — right up there with Anna Russell's operatic comedy and PDQ Bach. And the guy is fiendishly GOOD!

  5. Wow- I've never heard of Stjepan before and now I'm a fan too. The man's a Muppet. Watching him made me realize how little I watch great cellists, compared to how often I listen to them. Time to hit up the YouTube archives…
