The loops and layers of the Berlin-based cellist’s solo Album evoke resonant emotions that could afford to linger.
Since she started recording in 2007, Anne Müller has accrued a solemn, emotionally resonant discography. Trained at Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts and busy as a symphonic cellist for the early part of her career, Müller has pivoted in recent years towards the modern classical/ambient axis. You can hear her adept string work across a series of collaborations with Nils Frahm, Ólafur Arnalds, pianist Lubomyr Melnyk, and singer-songwriter Agnes Obel. Heavy-hearted, soundtrack-ready, and dramatic as those albums can be, Müller’s debut solo effort Heliopause reveals a subtle sense of humor: How else to introduce a solo album than with a piece titled “Being Anne”?
