Ionisation is a classical percussion ensemble concert as imagined by late virtuoso and master teacher, Robert Hohner. Recorded in 1998, the recording was shelved with the sudden illness and passing of Mr. Hohner. Years in the making, Music Starts From Silence (MSFS) collaborated with ensemble members and the Hohner family to obtain original recordings, as well as Robert’s notes. This release celebrates the life and legacy of Robert Hohner, through wonderfully captured performances of his internationally renowned ensemble.
Instrumentation includes: a marimba orchestra, Varèse’s percussion orchestra, and a variety of chamber ensembles in between.
Digital download features bonus items including a PDF of full album artwork.
