"Postcards From Germany" is a collection of fourteen solo piano pieces inspired by a trip to Germany that David Nevue and his wife took a few years ago. Most of the tracks are quietly poetic, offering musical glimpses of places and experiences encountered on the trip. There are no polkas or beer-garden romps, but rather the subtle beauty of the countryside and the explorations of castles and cathedrals. This is David Nevue's sixth CD, and his artistry grows with each new release. The title track carries a feeling of setting out on a new adventure, full of anticipation and hope. "Wonderland" is a gorgeous piece that has an easy, contented sense of peace and serenity. It evokes images of gently falling snow or a meadow full of wildflowers and the gentlest of breezes. "In God's Hands" offers a sense of surrender and a willingness to let go of control. A deeply religious man, Nevue often composes about his spiritual life. Sometimes these compositions are a bit turbulent (as on "The Vigil"), but this piece is tranquil and serene. Nevue mentions in the liner notes that he and his wife were impressed at how often both of them strongly felt the presence of God during their travels, and this comes across in several of the pieces. "The Kindness of Strangers" is a warm and happy "thank you" to a stranger who led the couple out of a mountain snowstorm and took them in for the night. "The Walled City" is probably my favorite track on this CD. It is a little bigger, moodier, and more complex. There is a mysterious feeling as well as a sense of sadness. It is an especially beautiful and evocative piece. "Castle Hunting" is lighthearted and reminds me a little of some of Robin Spielberg's compositions. It suggests the fun of exploring something new and finding delightful little surprises at every turn. "Postcards From Germany" is an excellent CD, and I recommend it very highly.

Postcards differed from the normal David Nevue sound of his previous 4 albums, but if anything it is a change for the better. As usual there is a healthy dosage of slow, melodic tracks as well as many upbeat tracks (ex. The Amazing Accordian Man). No question "One Night At Mozart's" was the fan favorite that has gotten much radio play worldwide, but my personal favorite has to be "Big Snow In Salzburg". Every time I listen to it I get a perfect mind's eye vision of a beautiful light snowfall on a pitch dark night with the stars shining majestically overhead. This is definately a CD for any instrumental/piano lover. Get it (and Nevue's 6 other albums) AS FAST AS YOU CAN! You won't regret it.

If you enjoy the music of Jim Brickman, George Winston and David Lanz you will love David Nevue. He is an extraordinary artist and musician. His music is absolutely wonderful. You will not be disappointed in this CD.
