EDITORS’ NOTES

This is a solo piano album of gently undulating sound sculptures that revel in the beauty and peace of our forests. Hauschka creates an intimacy through his focus on the most personal of insights—the delight of spiderwebs sparkling with dew; the unexpected, strange pleasure of placing hands in an anthill; the smell of wet moss… and the magic of human companionship, as the composer and his father share innermost thoughts. Hauschka’s improvisations ebb and flow, taking unexpected, intriguing harmonic paths. The coruscating “Another Hike” takes us full circle—a through-composed piece that rounds off this gorgeous, atmospheric album.

How is this "Classical" music?

As this sounds like watered down George Winston, it seems "New Age" would be a more accurate category for this album. The writing is homophonic (melodies over block chords), rather than polyphonic. There is no counterpoint. No modulation. No voice leading. There is absolulely nothing about this music that bears any resemblance to Classical music.
