CD Review – River Serene, by Timothy Wenzel

The title and the cover artwork set the mood for composer/keyboardist Timothy Wenzel's latest work, a deep and insightful musical journey into the heart of melodic solace.

In addition to writing all the compositions, Wenzel performs all of the pieces himself on synthesizer, making this a genuine solo effort, and a remarkable and outstanding one at that.
Especially since he is the only musician on this outing, Wenzel utilizes all the sonic capabilities of the synthesizer at his disposal, resulting in a full, rich sound that registers the signatures of guitar, bass, and percussion, as well as a host of exotic instrumentation.
The music is gentle and placid, but it never loses interest due to its dynamism and creativity. This is the perfect soundtrack for a quiet, peaceful voyage of any kind.
--Raj Manoharan
