21st Century dynamic piano compositions Samer Fanek – Guide Me

21st Century dynamic piano compositions Samer Fanek – GUIDE ME:  As I listen (carefully) to this dynamic set of modern piano compositions, I get the feeling it’s (definitely) Samer guiding us via his intimate connection with the power of the universe… that’s particularly true on pieces like the one he composed for his mother, “For Lila“… a true expression of love through his piano and some of the most wonderful orchestral backing you’ll ever hear!  I reviewed his debut in issue # 164, and it got high marks from me, to be sure.

I found a short trailer that shows Samer playing the keyboard for the new release…

…very enjoyable, but for the next album, I’d like to see a trailer that’s a bit longer, and includes head shots, etc… on the other hand, be sure you SUBSCRIBE to Samer’s channel (since you’re there already)… he has a LOT of other material you will enjoy.

I particularly enjoyed “Long Time Ago“, which focuses more on his keyboard in solo mode… full depth, and excellent use of upper and lower registers for penetrating overtones… I loved this piece, and will be listening to it often!

The string weaves and deeply moving orchestral surrounds against Samer’s keyboard on the 4:26 “Newborn” are totally awesome, and will lift your spirit into celestial realms you never imagined before.

One of the strongest piano/orchestra performances I’ve heard (yet) in 2018, “Sense of Purpose“, made the list for my personal picks on my iPhone, so it will be riding with me every day in my GTO (lol)… full of majestic chord ranges and powerful stylings!

Of the eleven stunning songs offered up for our aural adventure, it was (without doubt) the beautiful title track, “Guide Me“, that got my vote for personal favorite… Samer’s pacing on this tune is perfect, and I can easily see the piece being recommended for (and WINNING) awards!

I give this rising young artist a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.99 for his latest sonic adventure.  Get more information, and pre-order the album now on the Samer Fanek website.           Rotcod Zzaj
