His music has a virtuoso and round sound to it, but underneath it's surface – despite the lightness and ease of the performance – there lie structural complexities, multifaceted and often disguised references. They, in the opinion of the composer, may also be reflecting traces of a personal disruption. Soprano saxophonist and bass clarinettist Klaus Gesing, born in Düsseldorf (Germany), finished his studies in The Hague, spends a lot of time in Italy, and this notwithstanding has been living in Vienna since 1998- is an aesthete of sound: His profound and often fervid lyricisms prove to be musical thoughts of a more intricate and multi-layered nature than initially meets the "ear".

Pleasant to the taste, sublime and self-evident: these may be the properties that one could attribute to Klaus Gesing´s music.

A music that - despite all virtuosity – manages to maintain an aura of chamber musical transparency and is characterised by a continuous and nuanced flowage spanning structurally secure and organic musical phrases.
A music that explores the profundities of emotional expression rather than the widths of experiment, a music that reconciles expressive intensity and lyricism.

It is music of a piece – and Klaus Gesing - being the choreographer - manages to realise architectural stringency and an apollonian equilibrium. Or so it seems.
Klaus Gesing (soprano sax, bass clarinet, flutes, loops); Gwilym Simcock (piano, melodica); Yuri Goloubev (double bass); Asaf Sirkis (drums, percussion)
