A Different Forest - Very Good, Based on 1 Critics

AllMusic - 80
Based on rating 8/10

Following triumphs that included the imaginative experiments of 2017's What If and his scores for the films Adrift and The Current War, Hauschka's Volker Bertelmann makes his Sony Classical debut with A Different Forest, an album that exemplifies his talent at creating a sense of place with his music. Instead of the prepared piano that is usually at the heart of most Hauschka albums, Bertelmann uses pure piano to reflect the eternal beauty of the woods. However, A Different Forest is very much a piece with the rest of his work, echoing the searching feel of What If, the tender melodies of Ferndorf, and the musical landscapes of Abandoned City.
