"small pieces" is hauschka's seventh release since 2004. after the great feedback on his "ferndorf" album and the "snowflakes and carwrecks" ep the german pianist is focused on very minimal little pieces with a few or even no preparations.
these 5 songs are small compositions with composed melodies and they seemed to be pictures or little vague and fast impressions of a long train ride.
"sehnsucht" is the german word for "longing" and it is a kind of theme for this record as much as a reference to romanticism. "flingern" -a part of düsseldorf- and "brooklyn" are clear defined places that have stories and on the other side. there is "unknown" and "wohin" which are questions or words that describe insecurity and undefined future.
"small pieces" by hauschka gives us a small view on his idea of longing and the diversity that lies in there -- hauschka-net.de
