liner notes: His fascination with Christian MorgensternâEURTMs (1871-1914) work inspired Meinrad Kneer, the initiator of this project, to start up a new collective named Phosphoros Ensemble. On one hand, KneerâEURTMs compositions are interpreted sensitively yet theatrically by singer Almut Kühne and on the other hand, Uli PleÃ"YmannâEURTMs recitations, which are equally expressive as they are musical, are embedded in the collective improvisations of the ensemble. The unusual instrumentation of (bass-)clarinet, harp and double bass, gives the writerâEURTMs poems as well as the voices much space for development. Text and composition, improvisation and recitation interlock and interweave to form a new whole.
