new full-length from hauschka. prepared piano and strings from fatcat's critically acclaimed 130701 modern classical imprint. this album features the 12-piece ensemble the magik magik orchestra, for whom hauschka arranged orchestrations around his prepared piano performances. '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. this album will appeal to fans of max richter, johann johannsson, dustin o'halloran, sylvain chauveau and yann tiersen.
