In 2019, PIANOVERSAL releases the second album with music by Esther Flückiger, celebrating the 60th birthday of the Swiss artist who lives in Milan. In "LUMINESCENCE" Esther Flückiger and her musician friends take us on a journey through sound and space - a musical adventure track by track.
ESTHER FLÜCKIGER belongs to the uncompromising musicians of the contemporary music scene in Europe. She fires the creative fields of tension between tradition and avant-garde with gripping style wanderings between Classical & Contemporary Music, Ethno, Electronics and Jazz & Groove. For decades the Swiss artist, who lives in Milan, has been performing worldwide as a composer, pianist and improviser.

"The pianist, composer and improviser Esther Flückiger draws in her compositions on a rich base, which denotes her familiarity with both the classical repertoire and the jazz idioms. Particularly intense moments are created when Flückiger concentrates entirely on her wonderful piano playing."
Jürg Huber, NZZ
"Esther's music is like an emotional journey in a dazzling landscape." Giovanna Barbati
"Esther is a stream of energy, intuition and creativity. She captures every musical input, works it out and directs it further with her originality. She is an ideal companion on musical journeys: there is never any monotony with her". Massimo Mazzoni
