ThePianoGuys WONDERS Deluxe Edition CD/ DVD - Review & Giveaway - ends 1/19/15 US


We are total music lovers in our home.  For me, I fell in love with classical music when I began to play the piano, and my family and I have developed quite an affinity for New Age Music which includes The Piano Guys.  The Piano Guys have been a large part of our music that we listen to on YouTube for quite a while since one of my sons discovered their music.  He'll sync his laptop to the stereo system and stream in their New Age tones to brighten our days.


Just recently, I was so fortunate to receive their latest CD/DVD Deluxe Edition, The Piano Guys, Wonders to review.  It's does contain their latest and greatest that I have heard on their YouTube channel with a few extras that I had not heard before.   With this album, The Piano Guys, Wonders, the group earned its highest charting album ever, and the largest debut sales week for a new age act in over five years, as Wonders starts at No. 12 with 23,000 sold. The last new age act to earn a bigger opening frame was new Yanni, who saw his Yanni Voices project bow with 26,000 on the chart dated April 11, 2009.  Of course, Wonders, released on Portrait/Sony Masterworks, naturally also debuts at No. 1 on the New Age Albums chart — making it their fifth consecutive chart-topper.


The Piano Guys is a collaboration of four very talented gentlemen started in St. George, Utah, with a little piano store owned by Paul Anderson, The Piano Guys.  Paul wanted to make his business a huge success and turned to YouTube to interact with his customers in a special way.  Through the door of the music shop one day, came Jon Schmidt, a super talented concert pianist, to help promote both Paul's piano sales and Jon's own music.  Steven Sharp Nelson, a multi-instrumentalist and super colossal cello player, was performing with Jon in many concerts, joined in with his bright joviality style.  The next to join the group was Al van der Beek.  He had the recording studio and a gift of songwriting.  The mix of these four gentlemen, and their behind the scenes people, all added up to be a monumental YouTube sensation.


Their latest album, Wonders, Deluxe Edition, is truly a great masterpiece, with music that is either their own compositions or recreated music inspired by great classical composers in history that has been updated and revitalized.  Each piece of music is elegantly presented; most are lively, spirited, and resonating masterpieces, and some are just striking pieces filled with passion.

  1. I especially loved the Batman song. I was a big Batman groupie as a kid.

    As for Verilux, they have cool stuff with free shipping. I clicked the link. Did that give you a vote? I'm not sure.
