Pianist, Producer &
An artist from Düsseldorf makes Hollywood sound better, his concerts are wonderfully improvised and the nominations for Oscar and Golden Globe are doing well in the poetry album anyway.
Hauschka or Volker Bertelmann is a pianist, producer, composer and much more. He had his first time at the piano at the age of 9, today he plays hundreds of improvised shows every year, produces music at amazing speed and works for theatre, film and television.
Hauschka recorded with Grammy violinist Hilary Hahn and composed as Artist in Residence for the MDR Radio Symphony Orchestra Leipzig. Together with the American pianist and composer Dustin O’Halloran, he developed the soundtrack for the film Lion, which was nominated as the best original score for Oscar and Golden Globes.
He composed the music for the Showtime series Patrick Melrose, and for Gunpowder, an HBO series with Kit Harington. In 2018, he accepted an invitation to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
