Max Lilja is a Finnish solo artist, cellist and composer – and one of the founders of the cello rock band Apocalyptica. Lilja has released three cello electro solo albums, has composed music for films, games, radio and stage and has performed in over thousand concerts in over sixty countries. 

In 2024 Lilja presents Six Shades of Bach – an electronic reimagination of Bach's iconic cello suites.

Max Lilja is a rock star of the cello. His music sounds like Jean-Michel Jarre, Depeche Mode and Jimi Hendrix. There is only this great Finn with his cello and an incredible charisma.”
