Classical music made Awesome!
on October 2, 2012
First, for those who have never listened to The Piano Guys or seen their videos, imagine a mix of Pop/Rock, New Age, and Classical music. Most of the music they play has an accompanying video that adds to the feel and atmosphere of each song in a way only 5 guys from Utah have been able to do. All their music is meant to be positive, uplifting, beautiful, and above all, family friendly. Fans of The Piano Guys span all age groups and are found in all corners of the world. If you are looking for something with passion that won't overwhelm the senses like so much media today, look no further than The Piano Guys.
This album comes shortly after The Piano Guys signed with Sony Masterworks. If you have heard or own their first album under their own label, then you will recognize a few of the songs on this new album, but they are welcome additions to a very well rounded track list. Not a single song feels out of place or "forgotten". The two previously unreleased songs: Titanium/Pavane and Arwen's Vigil, don't disappoint. Vigil starts soft and romantic like the title suggests, and then picks up momentum about half-way through and finishes again on a slow note. For fans of the movies, the song reflects the various ups and downs of the fantastic story in fine style. Titanium/Pavane was heard once before this release during the taping of their PBS special in mid September and the quality of the performance is certainly heard in both versions. It's obvious why this song is said to be The Piano Guys' favorite. This is the second time David Guetta was covered by The Piano Guys and I hope they plan on using more of that style of music because it translates so well onto classical instruments (with the flair that The Piano Guys are famous for). A video should, hopefully, follow the album release closely and, as always, The Piano Guys experience is not complete without the videos to go with the songs. So, if you haven't seen their youtube page, go to: [...] and check out all the great videos available. And subscribe to The Piano Guys for all their future releases.
