“Sunset Breeze,” the 4th album release by Lynn Yew Evers, is a dreamy, euphonious, ultra-relaxing journey to tranquility, on which you get to experience some of the most beautiful solo piano ever. Lynn Yew Evers is an award winning concert pianist and composer with a degree from Trinity College of Music in London. Originally hailing from the tropical city of Ipoh in Malaysia — a former tin mining town rife with interesting history and surrounded by limestone hills, caves, and temples — Lynn developed a connection to God and nature, which became an inspirational framework for her utterly gorgeous solo piano compositions.
In addition to playing for several Malaysian dignitaries, Lynn was also invited to the palace to play for the King and Queen of Malaysia. Here, we can certainly see why. Each one of the 14 compositions on “Sunset Breeze” is its own magical wonderland from this extraordinarily talented artist. The melodies are well-defined and harmonious, combining classical, New Age, and contemporary elements. This is the kind of music where when you hear it, you stop and ask, “What is that beautiful music? Who is that artist?”
A particular favorite is “Oriental Moon” on track 4. This is full of depth, breadth, and emotion. Her range of talent really shines through here, like shimmering moonlight on the breeze.
The title track, “Sunset Breeze,” on track 6, is beautifully composed, with perfect timing, movement, sensitivity, and flow. Lynn is one with her instrument and this translates through to the listener easily and effortlessly.
While the whole album from start to finish, is timeless, elegant, and extraordinarily graceful, Track 7, “Where Do I Go From Here,” is particularly so. Alive and beautifully structured, one can almost surely hear lyrics where there are ostensibly none. Following on Track 8 is the lovely “Without Words,” which definitely doesn’t need any to convey its ageless message.
Track 12, “Heim Angelus,” which I believe translates to “Home of the Angels,” is exceptionally beautiful, and one to listen to again and again. It’s effortlessly fluent, expertly composed and arranged, as well as impeccably performed.
“Sunset Breeze” is a superb album and a special recording that is highly recommended to all. So exquisitely beautiful.
