by Timothy Wenzel —
Wenzel, a New Age pianist and synthesist, likes to create encompassing themes around each of his recordings.
For this release, the theme is wind — one of nature’s most pervasive natural forces.
Wenzel is talking about real wind, the kind that pushes a sailboat or kicks up a hurricane, but he also uses wind as a metaphor for storms and changes in our lives.
This is beautiful music featuring a wide variety of instrumentation, including piano, flute and violin.
