Agnes Obel – Citizen of Glass

While 2010’s Philharmonics and 2013’s Aventine were applauded for the artist’s piano work and the hushed beauty of her voice, here Obel complements her compositions with grandiose instrumentation, including violin, cello, spinet and the Trautonium. The additions are magnificent and never overwhelm, staying true to Obel’s commitment to minimalism and forming a haunting, symphonic quality that partners with delicate vocals as they lead the way through the album.
