Hauschka - Foreign Landscapes released today in the UK / Europe

‘‘A subtle, carefully-nuanced album that will give exponentially more, the more you listen.’‘ City Lifers

‘‘At once intimate, mature and disarming. *****’.’ The Kaje

‘‘vibrant and inviting.’‘ The Silent Ballet

‘‘Jaw-dropping…At times ravishingly beautiful.’‘ Rhythm Circus

*Hauschka*’s striking third album for FatCat’s 130701 imprint sees the pianist / composer making ambitious advances on his critically-acclaimed previous work. Stepping out from his established niche as a gifted and engaging ‘prepared piano’ player, he boldly extends his repertoire, resetting his music within a rich orchestral score. The album features San Francisco’s Magik*Magik Orchestra, alongside Volker Bertelmann’s own prepared piano.

Dynamic, brimming with character and colour, Foreign Landscapes retains its author’s distictive musical voice and leads the listener through a beautifully balanced collection, moving from delicate solo piano lyricism to a propulsive, robust minimalism. Now dark and intimate, now playful, now driving, the ensemble’s fleshed-out instrumentation enables Hauschka to bring his exuberant versatility to a vital new level. With Foreign Landscapes, Hauschka stretches for – and reaches – stunning new realms.
