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.

Nine of the album’s twelve tracks feature a 12-piece string and wind ensemble from 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 distinctive 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.
