Hauschka’s striking third album „Foreign Landscapes“ for FatCat’s 130701 imprint sees the experimental pianist and composer Volker Bertelmann 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.
