Hauscka is a stage name of German composer Volker Bertelmann. He is an outstanding contemporary author inventing a wide space out of narrow piano keys.
Hauscka’s music is an intense atmoshere. It intrigues with its minimalism and understatement.
Pegs, seashells and ping-pong balls in the service of a pianist? You can get a glimpse how it’s all may be managed. The single sound of each element is zilch but collected altogether they make a difference.
“Salon des Amateurs” is my favorit among Haushka’s releases. I feel it the most mysterious and contemptative. You’re welcome to try out.
