Nora-Louise Müller

Nora-Louise Müller is sought after in Europe and North America as an interpreter and teacher of contemporary clarinet music. Several of her performances have been recorded for radio as part of the NDR—das neue werk series. Müller is a frequent guest artist at festivals, most recently the (DA)(NE)S Festival (Maribor, Slovenia), MicroFest (Amsterdam), klub katarakt (Hamburg), and chiffren – kieler tage für neue musik. As a guest instructor, she has frequently been invited to give lectures and masterclasses at the Conservatoire de musique du Québec à Montréal. Travel grants from the Goethe-Institut enabled guest performances in Boston and Toronto as well as a stay at the Banff Centre for the Arts in Canada. In 2018 she won Second Prize in the Research Competition of the International Clarinet Association. In addition, she has performed over many years on the Bohlen-Pierce clarinet, which uses an alternative harmonic tonal system. As one of the very few clarinetists worldwide who play this unusual instrument, she is in demand not only as a concert clarinetist, but also occasionally for lectures on alternative tuning systems.

After completing her degree in instrumental pedagogy at the Hanover University of Music and Drama, Müller continued her studies at the University of Music Lübeck in the class of Reiner Wehle and Sabine Meyer, where she earned her performance degree. She received further inspiration over the course of several years from classes at the Scuola Internazionale di Perfezionamento Musicale in Bobbio, Italy with Hans Deinzer. She has researched playing techniques and musical possibilities of the Bohlen-Pierce clarinets in her PhD dissertation, to be published in 2020.
