Distant Horseman

Timothy Wenzel

Dreamy, relaxing and highly melodic instrumental music that touches the soul.

The fifth release of composer and keyboardist Timothy Wenzel features guest violinist Josie Quick. Comprising twelve instrumental selections, the album Distant Horseman is a spiritual and seasonal journey. It begins with introspective and hauntingly beautiful songs such as the Appalachian-tinged A Bend in the River and the Celtic-influenced title song, Distant Horseman. A Night So Cold continues the winter theme, having been actually written on a such a night. The emotional turning point comes with Forgiven, a deeply-inspired orchestral revelation, which leads into the joyful and spring-like Colors Dancing. A series of three love songs follow, including the charming Ecstasy Eyes and the lively 3/4-time Summer’s Dance. Luminous Wake, Starlit Sea is the lilting and joyous finale.
