ABOUT ETERNAL LONGING
“The sole object of music is the expression of the infinite.” - E.T.A. Hoffmann
Eternal Longing is Yukiko Hasegawa’s debut album. The title was chosen was chosen from E.T.A. Hoffmann’s Kreisleriana.
Yukiko explains: “Eternal Longing (‘unendliche Sehnsucht’) is the presumed longing for something sacred, something truly beautiful and deeply satisfying. A feeling which accompanies us throughout our lives and makes it impossible for people to remain happy for long. It haunts us and drives us, makes us want to get involved in beautiful artworks and go see wonderful landscapes. It searches for a deeper understanding of life and our part in the infinites of existence and time. It is the reason why I play the piano.”

"We are TRPTK, pioneers in sound. We believe that every artist deserves to convey his music, his story, in the very best possible way. Which is why we are a production company, a recording, mixing and mastering studio, and a music label. TRPTK stands for connecting technology and music with the listener. Without technology, music will not end up in the heart of the listener, only when the music really delivers the message. Our music is felt from head to toe. That is the essence of music to us. We are TRPTK, pioneers in sound. Welcome."
