NPR darling and Fat Cat Records neo-classicist Hauschka is coming to Seattle this Wednesday.  Touring in support of his latest release Salon Des Amatuers, Hauschka will bring his “prepared piano” treatments to the very appropriate atmosphere of The Triple Door.  If you are not familiar with this German piano composer, his latest release as well as 2010’s excellent Foreign Landscapes are good starting points.  Taking the piano and turning it into a full ensemble is one of Hauschka’s specialties.  By placing found objects on his piano strings and even restricting the movements for some notes, Hauschka plays his pieces through his own physical effects, creating a sweeping full sound.

This is not a show to miss if you’re into a classy evening of intelligent yet beautiful music.
