Golden State AAJ review from Music Unlimited 28 Fest

“The second set—by Brooklyn-based drummer-composer Harris Eisenstadt’s Golden State Quartet, in its European incarnation with partner and bassoon player Sara Schoenbeck, clarinetist Michael Moore and double bassist Pascal Niggenkemper—presented Eisenstadt’s ambitious musical vision. His wise compositions suggest intricate, haunting textures that blur distinction between the composed elements and highly personal, improvised interpretations. Eisenstadt’s assured, non-hierarchical leadership emphasized a delicate balance between subtle, economical polyrhythmic pulse and loose skeletal forms. Exploration of the acoustic instruments’ timbral range and generous freedom enabled each musician to expand on their own unique language.”
