Ensemble 5; Heinz Geisser | Fridolin Blumer | Reto Staub | Robert Morgenthaler | Naoki Kita
Luminescence is the seventh album by Heinz Geisser’s Ensemble 5 on Leo Records. It captures the band live in Tokyo during the final performance of their second tour to Japan in the fall 2019. The seasoned swarm intelligence of the four musicians meets the genuine musical artistry of Japanese violin player and guest musician Naoki Kita. As US-American writer Stuart Kremsky remarked on the Ensemble 5 2019 releases ”The Collective Mind Vol.1 & Vol.2” the musicians proceed to unheard musical territory ”coalescing in a sound world of continuing fascination’’.
