Cello Unlimited

Cello Unlimited

Kian Soltani’s passion for the movies finds a wonderful outlet in Cello Unlimited, a project that is performed entirely by the Austrian cellist, down to the percussion. Multi-tracked until Soltani creates an orchestra of cellos, the music here is by some of today’s leading film composers, including Hans Zimmer, Howard Shore, and John Powell. The range of sounds and textures that Soltani conjures up is remarkable and there’s an impressive sense of atmosphere. The Pirates of the Caribbean and Lord of the Rings suites are thrilling, while the music from Perfume—by Tom Tykwer, Reinhold Heil, and Johnny Klimek—is beautifully done. Soltani’s own two pieces, “Intermezzo: A Scene from the Past” and “Cello Unlimited,” ooze confidence.
